The Dunes Golf and Beach Club

The Dunes Golf and Beach Club

The Myrtle Beach area, also referred to as the Grand Strand, may not be one of the first destinations a meeting planner thinks of when planning a convention. But that's a mistake, as the Myrtle Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau proved last week during Successful Meeting University Southeast.

Spectacular beaches, first class hotels, challenging golf courses, and fresh local seafood combine with state-of-the-art meeting facilities, upscale shopping, and fine restaurants to create an all-around impressive meeting destination.

The Myrtle Beach area boasts more than 89,000 guest rooms in virtually every price range. From luxurious resorts to charming marina villages, groups are guaranteed to find the property that meets their needs.

Sixty miles of beautiful beaches is one of Myrtle Beach’s biggest draws. Add to that a hundred golf courses, three shopping malls, two outlet centers, and three shopping and entertainment centers and you have a popular destination.

This isn't a locale where the sidewalks are rolled up at night: When the sun goes down, Myrtle Beach comes alive. A memorable dining experience awaits, be it fine cuisine with Lowcountry flair or a themed dinner show attraction. With more than 1,700 restaurants to choose from, finding one that pleases your group will be no challenge at all.
