I recently went to Myrtle Beach, SC, with my 11-month-old son, along with his 3 year old sister. I wasn’t sure if they would like it because the ocean can be a daunting monster for someone so small.
However, we stayed at a resort called Ocean Creek Resort. The name gives a hint as to why it was a good fit for my children.
Right behind the hotel was the beach, however, the ocean fed into a shallow creek that ran through the sand. This was a perfect, and safe, play-place for young children.
In addition, there were many pools to choose from, including a small pool for children. They also have a playground that my daughter loved. Actually, she also loved both the kiddie pool and the large pool, so we could do both.
The May weather was mild and it was bearable to be outside during what would usually be a sunburn disaster.
Watch the video below to get an impression of what Myrtle Beach is like and what you can do there with children of all ages (and as adults!)
The Ocean Creek Resort has condos and villas of different sizes, so it is possible to fit in both small and large families.
There are a lot of things to do nearby too, in addition to the beaches.
For example, you have the Ripley’s Aquarium, the Childrens’ Museum, the Alligator Adventure and many more places.
I would recommend this vacation to parents with babies, as my 3-year-old constantly begs to go back!
