Attention! Military Families Can Get A Big Break On Beach Vacations

If you're planning a beach vacation and are considering deploying to a high-priced hotel on the ocean, you might want to do an about face. Village at the Glens, located in Little River, South Carolina, on the northern end of Myrtle Beach's famous Grand Strand is offering special military package rates that should prompt you to assume a new mission for the family outing this year.

Located just five minutes from Calabash, N.C., and about 10 minutes from the northern Grand Strand's ground zero (otherwise known as 60 miles of America's cleanest, most beautiful public beach), a villa at the Village at the Glens will give your family more deployment room and some great on-site amenities. With so much space for everyone to spread out, you can avoid the inevitable close combat experience that's triggered by squeezing the family into a cramped hotel room. Best of all, the Village is also close to the dining, shopping, fishing and entertainment venues that make Myrtle Beach famous.

If your idea of a great vacation includes attacking the golf course, adults staying at Village at the Glens can play a round at Heather Glen for just $60 per player plus cart fees. Kids 17 and under play for free when they're with a paying adult.

So, this summer, check out the Village of the Glens. Here's the skinny on the place: Spacious, charming, Scottish-styled villa complex. Comfortable and convenient. Two-bedroom villas on the military package: 3 nights - $456.80; 7 nights - $789.90. Three-bedroom villas on the military package: 3 nights - $551.15
7 nights - $906.35. You get a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, dining room, balcony/porch and washer/dryer. There's also a community pool, lots of space for the kids to play, and even picnic areas with gas grills for cookouts.

And here's a bonus: Village at the Glens guests get discounts at popular area attractions like the scenic dolphin cruise on the good ship Navigator out of Calabash, N.C.; a 1/2 day ocean fishing trip; the Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach; and restaurants including Pizzeli's Italian Kitchen, Papi's Texican Restaurant, Crab Catchers and Bistro 90.

Desperately Seeking Some Great Entertainment This Summer?

Get into the groove this summer with Madonna live at Legends in Concert!

For the first time on the Grand Strand, see the iconic performance of the 80's megastar whose hit song first put Argentina in the limelight decades before SC's own former governor. Whatever you remember most about those days, singing along with or getting your dance on to any number of her mega hits – c'mon you know you did - or the way she revolutionized 80's fashion with those lace gloves, big hair bows, gravity defying undergarments and mind-boggling quantity of rubber bracelets, there's no denying Madonna made a lasting impression on just about everyone.

Relive the awesome 80's and more this summer at Legends in Concert when a leading tribute artist portraying Madonna takes the stage, along with fellow headliners Elvis, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Tom Jones and Alan Jackson.

Madonna will strut her stuff all the way up to September 18 while Michael Jackson's special limited appearance will end on August 13. Tom Jones will have the ladies swooning in their seats through June 18, until he makes way for 70’s disco giants, ABBA, on June 20.

So make your vacation plans now to catch the best tribute artists this side of Las Vegas. Visit Legends in Concert's new state-of-the-art Broadway at the Beach theater—located beside Planet Hollywood.

From the red carpet welcome to more star sightings in one place than a Hollywood night out, you're guaranteed an unforgettably fun time!

Revealing Exhibit Coming To Myrtle Beach

Just this week, Premier Exhibitions, Inc. announced that Bodies Revealed—a world-traveling exhibit that shares the secrets of the human body with people of all ages—will open at Myrtle Beach's Broadway at the Beach on May 14 and be on display through Labor Day. This will be the first time the exhibit has come to South Carolina.

Bodies Revealed is awesome because unless you're a medical professional or in medical school, these are things you won't normally have the chance to see.

The specimens are carefully preserved and will be shown in various poses. It's a great way to learn a little bit more about what's going on inside of your body and clearly see the effects of disease and unhealthy lifestyles.

It will cost only $14 for adults and $10 for children. No doubt about it, this is a must-see for the summer in Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach has it all. Miles and miles of pristine beach. Great places to stay from luxury hotels to campgrounds that are the best you'll ever experience. Lots and lots of things to do. Here are some of our favorites:

Camping is so much more when you pull your RV into the East Coast's largest campground, Ocean Lakes Family Campground. A mile of private beach, pools, every imaginable activity and convenience are at your fingertips.

In the mood for a show? Catch the planet's best tribute artists at Legends in Concert's new Broadway at the Beach location and spend the evening with Dolly Parton, Elvis, The Blues Brothers, Michael Jackson and Jay Leno. Good golly, Miss Molly, you'll want to sing along with Little Richard too. This place rocks.

Broadway at the Beach is a destination in itself. This is the place where nighttime FUN lives in Myrtle Beach. It's got dozens of shops, movie theaters, restaurants and unusual places like the Ripley's Aquarium and MagiQuest, this is the Grand Strand's fun central. It's even got a nightclub district.

Got the itch to tee it up? For the best deals and four awesome courses, check out the The Glens Golf Group—Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch, Possum Trot, and Shaftesbury Glen. At a Glens course, you can get the feel of a Scottish links, fight the winds coming off the Intracoastal, stroll through a classic English parkland-style course dotted with flowers, or take on a challenge alongside the Waccamaw River. Glens courses are extraordinary and always in great shape. And they offer great deals on stay and play packages.

But don't just take TravelZoo's word for it. Come see for yourself!

Top Reasons To Head For Can-Am Days In Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

It's not everyday that an event gets to say it's 50 years old. But 2011 marks 5 decades of Canadians packing up the family and heading to Myrtle Beach, S.C. to escape the snow and jump start spring.

They're attracted by a very special event called Can-Am Festival Days. Billed as a celebration of "the partnership of Canadian and American citizens," it's days and days of just plain non-stop fun. Concerts. Art exhibits. Expos. Parades. Junior golf tournaments. Something for every member of the family.

Myrtle Beach loves rolling out the red carpet for Canadians. From campgrounds to golf courses, the area is ready to celebrate their favorite snowbirds. Come and enjoy the events, lush green fairways, and shopping bargains — and be the first to check out some new attractions.

While there are thousands of hotels along Myrtle Beach's 60-mile stretch of beachfront, one of the best places to stay with the family isn't a hotel at all. It's Ocean Lakes Family Campground. We're not talking tent camping (unless that's your thing). This is the number one RV park on the East Coast. Think outstanding amenities. Great customer service. Quiet and beautiful.

Accommodation options at Ocean Lakes range from campsites to rental trailers that deliver that RV experience. Or rent a home inside the gates — you can still enjoy the campground's amenities. Pile the whole family in a rental golf cart and take them on a cruise around the campground. You'll be amazed by this awesome place!

Like to play golf? The courses at Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links, Possum Trot, and the Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club are ready with greens that roll true and fairways that run fast. The Village at the Glens offers first rate golf stay and play packages. If you've lined up accommodations already and are just looking for a tee time, be sure to check out their tee time only specials at all four award-winning golf courses.

After a round, catch a show at Legends in Concert and let your imagination inspire memories of great entertainers as you take in Las Vegas-caliber performances by some of the world's best tribute artists. When you return home, you can brag you've seen Elvis, Dolly, Little Richard and Jay Leno – and Myrtle Beach's newest theater.

Come on down!
