A group of Myrtle Beach travel trade types were in Toronto this week to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the City of Myrtle Beach and to update agents and operators here on the latest news from the popular South Carolina destination.

Scott Schult, executive vice-president of marketing for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, said that Myrtle Beach has been investing more money each year to convince Canadians to visit the destination.

Along with easy air access with carriers like Porter Airlines, WestJet and Spirit Airlines, Schult said that Myrtle Beach offers visitors a host of ways to amuse themselves, including 100 kilometres of beach — no wonder, it’s referred to as the Grand Strand — over 100 golf courses, cuisine, culture and lots more.

However, Schult emphasized that visitors should remember that there are “so many things to do beyond the beach.”

He pointed out that there is no other US beach destination with such a wealth of amenities that are coupled with unique southern hospitality that Myrtle Beach offers its visitors.
