Carolina Country Music Fest (6/6 – 6/9)

Carolina Country Music Fest
Carolina Country Music Fest

More than 30 of country music’s hottest stars. Beach, boardwalk and sun. Giveaways, surprise artist Q&As and autograph sessions. Oh yeah, and a zip line. The countdown is on for the East Coast’s largest three-day outdoor country music festival. And you don’t want to miss a single second.  

From Thursday evening June 6 to Sunday June 9, Carolina Country Music Fest will bring together fans of all ages on 18 acres of beautiful coastal area along North Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The only requirement? Having fun. In fact, attendees spotted smiling or being kind have the chance to win VIP access, including meet-and-greets and private backstage shows. Here’s just a sampling of what you can expect to find at CCMF 2019:

The biggest names in country music

The biggest names in country music!

CCMF 2019 boasts four stages with back-to-back country music greatness—from CMA Award winners to American Idol finalists to newcomers chosen by you.

Alabama kicks off the party Thursday night with a 50th anniversary performance. Before amassing over 40 number-one singles and seven multi-platinum albums, before taking their place in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the boys from Alabama were low-country legends who started their journey right here in Myrtle Beach.

Winner of Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award, Florida Georgia Line will take the stage as one of two headliners for the weekend. If you’re looking to hear a live version of their most recent hit “Simple” or maybe something new, CCMF 2019 is the place to be.

Here’s a fact about headliner Thomas Rhett you may not know: He received a CMA Triple Play award for writing three number-one country songs in a year. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear what Rolling Stone called his “detailed style of songwriting” live.

Witness firsthand the intimacy of a Dierks Bentley’s performance, which features a mix of modern and classic country, bluegrass and rock.  A member of the Grand Ole Opry, his albums have earned him 11 Grammy Award nominations. Let Brothers Osborne bring out your rock and roll side, while country radio favorites Dan + Shay  show you why they’re just the sixth artists in history to hold the top two spots on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart at the same time.

Other fan favorites appearing at CCMF include:

  • Accomplished country singer and songwriter Rhett Akins
  • The newly formed Gone West with pop radio sensation Colbie Caillat
  • The always-candid Cam
  • Platinum-certified superstar Dustin Lynch
  • Rootsy chart-topper Randy Houser
  • Breakout trio Midland

And that’s just the beginning. You’ll also see the three winners chosen by fans for CCMF’s Battle of the Bands representing Myrtle Beach, Raleigh and Charlotte.

Beyond the music

Explore local restaurants

While you’re here, make sure you visit one of the exclusive festival merchandise booths, offering CCMF t-shirts, hats and other concert essentials.

Cool off and fill up at the many concession areas throughout the venue. You can also take a break and explore local restaurants close to N. Ocean Blvd, including Rip Tydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar, The Chemist Bar and the historic Pier 14 Restaurant & Lounge .

Outside the festival gates, you’ll find a zip line [to quench your thirst for adventure between sets. Download the CCMF 2019 app  for plenty more restaurant and activity suggestions.

Don’t miss the 2019 Carolina Country Music Fest Golf Classic.

If you can, extend your vacation weekend to Monday and take part in the 2019 Carolina Country Music Fest Golf Classic. Proceeds benefit the Horry County School music programs. There’s even an after-party at Dead Dog Saloon with Randy Houser and friends!

It’s all in the wrist

Party without worry with a cashless wristband

CCMF 2019 lets you party without worry, thanks to a cashless wristband. Load it up with cash beforehand and use it to pay for on-site festival expenses, which speeds up transaction times, cuts down on waits and allows you to leave your wallet at home.

Golf with the pros

Golf Myrtle Beach

Sure, Augusta is home to the PGA Masters Tournament. But Myrtle Beach, SC, has the Monday After the Masters – one of the country’s most popular Celebrity Pro-Am tournaments.

It all started in 1994 as a charity event organized by members of the band Hootie & the Blowfish. They’ve since raised millions for the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation and the South Carolina junior golf program. You never know who may show up to Monday After the Masters. In past years, actors, athletes, comedians and musicians have joined golf icons like John Daly and Tiger Woods on the links. From April 13 through 15, participants will enjoy exclusive parties, practice rounds and a Hootie & the Blowfish and Friends concert.

Dance the night away

Carolina Shag

The Grand Strand is home to the shag dance craze that caught the South by storm around the 1940s and has grown in popularity ever since. From April 10 through May 4, thousands of shaggers will do their thing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, during the Society of Stranders Spring Safari.

This event attracts lovers of beach music and shaggers from all over for 10 days of dancing, friendship and nightlife in the area’s most beloved local hotspots. The event culminates with a massive parade featuring floats from the Association of Carolina Shag Clubs.

Planning a Beach Wedding in Myrtle Beach, SC

Are You Planning a Magical Beach Wedding in Myrtle Beach?

Beach Wedding Couple
Myrtle Beach is the ideal setting for tying the knot

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, presents the perfect setting for your destination wedding: sand beneath your toes, sun shining, waves crashing in the background—nothing says love like the ambiance of a beach ceremony.

Beach weddings can pose some interesting challenges you may not encounter with more traditional venues. But with the right planning and considerations, you can orchestrate something truly magical and memorable. Here are the most important aspects to keep in mind when you’re planning to have your wedding in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Know the lay of the land

As you get ready for your big day, determine if you are going to walk down the aisle and celebrate within the City of Myrtle Beach, in North Myrtle Beach or somewhere outside of city limits. The regulations for each area differ, so you’ll want to check in advance and plan accordingly. For example, in North Myrtle Beach, alcohol isn’t allowed on the beach, and you can’t walk on the dunes. After you decide on a general location, obtain your local marriage license.

Don’t forget to check to see if there are any special Myrtle Beach events occurring at the same time as your ceremony, which could draw lots of folks in and disrupt your plans.

Settle on a space: public, private or resort

Beach Wedding Venue
Finding the perfect venue takes planning & imagination

Once you have decided the basics, your next big choice is deciding where you will hold your ceremony and reception. A public beach might save you the most money, but having your nuptials there means just about anyone can join the fun. (On the other hand, you’re sure to gets lots of spirited applause from onlookers!) Depending on where you decide to conduct your ceremony, though, you might be able to reserve a spot. In the City of Myrtle Beach, SC, you can obtain facility permits by contacting City Hall at 843-918-1008.

A private beach affords lots of seclusion, and restaurants and hotels near or on the beach provide views of the ocean and double as reception venues. They’ll tend to run a higher bill, however, than if you tie the knot on a public beach.

Luckily, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, offers plenty of venue options.

Take in the sunset

During the summer and late spring in Myrtle Beach, it promises to be scorching in the afternoon. Evening and morning ceremonies—with sunsets or sunrises—offer cooler alternatives with striking views. Your bridal party and other guests—especially older and younger ones—will thank you for sparing them from the heat. Plus, your photos will likely come out incredibly with everyone glistening less.

Moreover, you can seize the opportunity to enjoy your first kiss as a couple while the sun sets or rises in a dazzling array of color over the horizon.

Opt for appropriate—and comfortable—attire

Lightweight fabrics will keep your bridal party cool

When you walk down the sandy aisle, you want to be comfortable, so ditch the cumbersome and sizzling ball gown. Instead, you, your groom and your bridal party should wear lightweight fabric and colors—linen and cotton are excellent choices. Consider ditching the jackets for men.

While you’re at it, check the weather and keep an eye on the wind. If it promises to get gusty, forego the lengthy veil. Finally, leave behind the heels—you don’t want to sink into the sand. Wear flat sandals or wedges instead. You can even go barefoot for the full magical Myrtle Beach wedding experience.

Amplify your love

Your guests will surely want to hear the vows you’ve spent countless hours polishing and revising. The problem is, the waves in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, might be roaring, and you don’t want to try to compete with them when proclaiming your love. Even if you plan to simply repeat after the officiant, consider renting a microphone and amps—especially if you’re filming the proceedings as a keepsake.

Perfect the spread

A mouth-watering menu is essential for your reception

People always remember the food. From the first bite to dessert, you’ll want to master the meals that you serve at your reception. Outdoor dining—especially on the beach—demands more attention to detail. Think light fare, and prevent cheeses and cream-based items from sitting in the sun. Also, be sure to serve plenty of water to hydrate your guests, and offer bubbly wines that are sure to refresh everyone.

For your wedding cake, ask your baker about the best options for fillings and other ingredients. Inquire about fondant; it’s often a better choice for summer than buttercream. Red velvet also does well.

Bolster your bouquet

Not all annuals can hold up to the heat and humidity of Myrtle Beach, SC, during peak summer season. When you plan your ceremony, you’ll want to pay special attention to building your bridal bouquet and choosing the right varieties for the flower girl. Pick flowers that do well in tropical weather: chrysanthemums, plumeria, orchids, calla lilies and king protea all make excellent choices for their looks and durability.

Make the magic happen

Water, Water, Everywhere

As the name implies, Ocean Creek practically surrounds you with water. That theme carries through the grounds, with 13 water features in all.

Submerge yourself in the refreshing waters of the Beach Club swimming pool, offering scenic views of the ocean and surrounding dunes. Three Lodge Villa outdoor pools provide peace and quiet amid the wooded areas of the resort, while the pool at the Tennis Villa invites complete lounging and relaxation.

Guests staying in the North and South Towers have their own private pools encircled by palm trees for a true tropical flavor. The South Tower pool flows inside beneath a domed area, where you’ll also find an indoor hot tub. From the North Tower pool deck, you can see the ocean as well as the natural creek for which the resort is named.

For fun without the sun, head for the cool, clear waters of the centrally located indoor pool at the Lodges. It’s right next to the indoor whirlpool, where bubbling, healing waters melt your tensions away.

Bigtime Family Fun

Ocean Creek Shuttle Service

It’s easy to understand why families flock to Ocean Creek every summer. This is the only oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach stretching from Highway 17 to the ocean. The beach is wide and secluded, like having your own private getaway.

The property includes an abundance of boardwalks, nature trails and paths for walking, jogging and biking together. You’re likely to encounter herons, egrets, turtles and other wildlife along the pond or around the creek bridge.

During weekdays, the Ocean Creek Kids Club is in session. Designed for children ages 5 to 12, the Kids Club features different activities every day, including scavenger hunts, beach kickball, face painting, water balloon games, crafts, seashell searches, sand castle contests and much more. And kids of all ages love the oceanfront playground, complete with swings over the sand.

Good Sports

Tennis courts at Ocean Creek resort

If your vacation time means game on, Ocean Creek has you covered. Play a few friendly sets at Ocean Creek’s full-service tennis center. You can sign up for a round-robin tournament with other guests, or take a private lesson from the resident tennis pro. There’s also oceanfront beach volleyball—a favorite activity among families and groups of friends. The golfers in your group can work on shaving strokes off their short game by practicing on our on-site putting green.

Shopping, Dining, Entertainment

When it’s time to explore, you don’t have to go far to find something special. With just a three-minute walk, you can be at Barefoot Landing —one of the most popular shopping, dining and entertainment destinations on the East Coast.

The whole family will love strolling the outdoor setting and checking out the huge variety of shops, which include eclectic gift boutiques, popular national retailers, beach-themed general stores, jewelry and lots more.

For dining and drinks, you’ll find choices at Barefoot Landing to please every palate. Try Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s (yes, it’s Jimmy’s sister), the House of Blues with live music and fresh seafood from the Flying Fish Public Market and Grill. For dessert, satisfy your sweet tooth in one of several candy stores and ice cream shops.

If you feel like taking a walk on the wild side, do not miss Alligator Adventure—one of the largest facilities for reptile life in the world. Don’t let the name fool you: Alligator Adventure also houses exotic birds, monkeys, tortoises and hyenas, among other species. Then there’s T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station, where you can get up close and personal with cubs, large cats and a monkey or two.

Delectable Dining

Ocean Creek’s on-site Beach Club Bar & Grill

Sure, you’re close to lots of wonderful restaurants. But you don’t have to leave Ocean Creek to satisfy your hunger.

Start each day at Ocean Creek’s Four Seasons Restaurant with a full southern breakfast buffet featuring fresh pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage and bacon, homemade hash browns, hot coffee, juice—the works.

For lunch and dinner, head to the Beach Club Bar and Grill. Their specialty? Mouthwatering burgers, grilled chicken, tasty appetizers and frozen tropical drinks (with and without alcohol). The Beach Club hosts special fish fries, cookouts, taco nights and live music throughout the summer. It’s also one of the best spots to watch the sunset at North Myrtle Beach.

5 Reasons Why Vacation Rentals Beat Hotels

You may confront a bit of a dilemma as you start planning your next Myrtle Beach vacation: Should you book a vacation rental property or a hotel? The answer, however, is simple when you consider cost, amenities and the space you can only get from vacation rentals.

To assure you that vacation rentals are the way to go, we’ve assembled five big reasons why it’s smart to choose vacation rentals for your Myrtle Beach getaway.

Reason #1 to book a vacation rental: The cost.

Multi-Family Vacations
Multi-Family Vacations

Booking a private vacation rental home using a property management company means more transparent pricing. You won’t get charged hidden fees depending on the amenities you use, so the price you pay doesn’t budge from the start.

If you’re traveling with a large group, it can get rather expensive to reserve several hotel rooms. By choosing a vacation rental home, you can involve more families, share the expenses and save money you can apply to future vacations!

Meals are the largest expense during a vacation. Having the option to cook your own meals in a vacation rental property relieves a huge burden from your budget. Recruit the whole family to help with dinner and visit Myrtle Beach restaurants only when you want to.

Reason #2 to book a vacation rental: Total flexibility.

Kitchen Area of Ocean Creek MM14

Operating according to tight schedules is a good way to turn your perfect vacation into a drag. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can expect orchestrating your day around room service, the long lines for a mediocre breakfast and inconvenient pool hours.

A vacation home, meanwhile, gives you the freedom to sleep in, treat yourself to hearty meals at any time, and go for a late-night dip in the pool if you’d like. That’s vacation time.

Plus, vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach offer flexible periods of stay, whether you’re in town for a few nights or a few weeks.

Reason #3 to book a vacation rental: More space.

Ocean Creek L2433 - Master Bedroom
Master Bedroom of Ocean Creek L2433

Vacation rental homes typically run about 2,000 square feet, while a hotel room is usually less than one quarter that size. In that small of a space, things can get pretty hectic with family members bickering over the bathroom or keeping everyone’s belongings separate. And who wants to sleep in a room with the person who snores?

At a rental property, family and friends can spend quality time in shared spaces, then retreat to bedrooms when you need a little breathing room.

Reason #4 to book a vacation rental: Better amenities.

Swim-Up Pool Bar at North Beach Plantation
Swim-Up Pool Bar at North Beach Plantation

These days, travelers want a balance of home-like conveniences with perks they can only get on vacation. These include:

• Fast (free) Wi-Fi connections
• Big kitchens
• Swimming pools, pool tables and hot tubs
• Free parking

You’re far more likely to find these amenities in vacation rentals.

Washing machines, coffee makers and driveways not only make life easier—they boost your comfort level. While these come as part of the package with most vacation rental properties, hotels tack on hidden fees for even the smallest conveniences like Internet access and movies. Find the perfect rental property with all your must-haves rather than settling for an impersonal hotel room for your family vacation.

Reason #5 to book a vacation rental: Tranquility.

Unique Circular Living Room of Marina Inn 5101
Living Room of Marina Inn 5101

Frequent guests of rental homes in Myrtle Beach relish the peace and privacy afforded by a place of their very own. It’s nice to enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep without loud guests coming and going down the hall in a busy hotel.

Are you in the market for a relaxing retreat? Or perhaps a fun-filled week of activities for the whole family? Enjoy both when you book a rental property. It’s the perfect choice no matter how you define vacation.

Vantage is ready to assist you in choosing the perfect Myrtle Beach rental for you and your family. Contact a reservationist at (888) 404-3110 or book direct at www.VantageMB.com.
