Myrtle Beach Celebrates With Annual CAN-AM Days

Calling all Canadians!

Though the 57th annual Canadian-American Festival lasts just one week – March 10-18 – select Myrtle Beach area hotels, merchants and attractions are offering discounts throughout spring for travellers with a valid Canadian passport.

Ranging from 25% to as much as 55%, the discounts are designed to help Canadians “make up” the difference in the Canadian exchange rate.

“We have seen a growing number of Canadian visitors to the Myrtle Beach area, especially in the past decade,” said Julie Ellis, public relations and communications manager for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB. “The late winter and early spring seasons offer mild weather, more affordable accommodations and more elbow room at area attractions. The special promotions for our Canadian neighbours provide even more incentive by bridging the gap in the exchange rate.”

Special discounts are available for valid dates listed on the individual offer listed online. Coupons are not needed to receive the discount, just show a valid Canadian ID.
