Tips for Vacationing in the "Off-Season"
The Grand Strand is a fascinating destination known for its amusement parks and summer vacations, however the "off-season" can be one of the best times to visit as there's plenty of fun to be had throughout the entire year! Check out some of our tips for maximizing your North Myrtle Beach vacation during the slower months:

Off Season at PrinceThe Prince Resort does not offer indoor pool amenities, but did you know that beginning November 1st of every year the pool in our ocean front tower is heated? This is a great option to take advantage of during the milder winter days when our area sees temperatures in the 60's and 70's.
 
Located approximately 7 miles south of the Prince Resort, you will find a renowned local favorite known as Duplin Winery. At Duplin Winery you can kick back with a glass or two of your favorite wine, or even try something new and exciting by participating in one of their delicious wine tasting events. Whether you are in town for a quick visit, or have chosen to spend your winter in North Myrtle Beach, Duplin Winery's fun and relaxing atmosphere will appease any stay.
 
Take the family on an adventure! Head down to Broadway at the Beach and check out Myrtle Beach's famous Ripley's Aquarium. With over 85,000 square feet full of educational exhibits, and several interactive areas, nothing says fun and excitement like a visit to this aquatic wonderland! Other ideas for indoor fun include the Hollywood Wax Museum and Wonderworks.
 
Catch a show! Plenty of live theaters including The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and the Alabama Theater can be found just minutes from the Prince Resort. Many of these theater shows offer holiday themed shows during November and December.
 
News from the Cherry Grove Pier

Cherry Grove Pier
We are pleased to inform you that several of the Cherry Grove Pier's employees attended the Fishing Show in Nashville, TN to learn about the newest equipment and trends in fishing. The bait and tackle shop is now gearing up with the latest fishing items for the upcoming season.
 
For those of you who are curious as to how our weather is affecting the fishing at the pier, whiting, croaker, and black drum are still being caught at this time. Fisherman from all over are visiting to take advantage of the mild winter we have been experiencing at the beach.
 
A trip to the pier is not complete without stopping in for a quick meal at the Boardwalk Beach Café. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on a daily basis, Chef Richard and Tim have been staying pretty busy cooking up delicious meals for our guests and creating new weekly dinner specials. Don't forget to drop in and try one of the new specials or even a relaxing night cap. The Boardwalk Beach Café is currently open 7 days a week from 7AM to 9PM.

From the Golf Desk

Tired of the cold weather and ready for some fun in the sun? Now is the time to get your golf package booked for spring! Rooms are going fast and tee times are at a premium.

How well do you know your golf history? The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland. The 18-hole round was created at the Old Course at St. Andrews in 1764. Golf's first major, and the world's oldest tournament in existence, is The Open Championship, also known as the British Open, which was played in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland.
 
Evidence of early golf in what is now the United States includes a 1793 record for a shipment of golf equipment to a William Wallace in Charleston, South Carolina, an advertisement published in the Royal Gazette of New York City in 1779 for golf clubs and balls, and the establishment of the South Carolina Golf Club in Charleston in 1787.
 
With so many different courses available in Myrtle Beach today, one could find anything from a Southern low country design to a course reminiscent of the old Scottish links. It is no surprise that Myrtle Beach has become the "Golf Capital of the World".
 
We offer several amazing packages for you to choose from, many with added perks. Whether you are looking for a package for the spring or getting a head start on the fall golf season, give us a call and our knowledgable golf department will be able to assist you any way they can. Don't delay! Make that call today!
 
May the course be with you!

Guest Comments
"We stayed at the Prince Resort for three months and what I love most about the Prince is that their staff becomes friends. Everyone is very nice and easy to work with. They always do their best to please their guest. It's just all around a great place to stay."
Vicky D., 1/03/19 after a 3 month stay

"The location of the Prince is wonderful.. No other high rise resorts nearby so the views of the marsh are spectacular from the ocean view units as well... it is a quieter location than the hustle bustle and traffic of Myrtle Beach, yet stores for all your needs for a beach vacation a short walk away. We loved our stay.. we will return to the Prince.. without a doubt!"
