Thaw Out in Myrtle Beach


With bone-chilling temperatures and massive snow accumulations across much of North America, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, wants to spread a “thaw out” to residents of cold-weather destinations.

On March 3, Visit Myrtle Beach launched a contest appropriately titled “Thaw Me Out,” encouraging residents to submit their photos and stories as to why they deserve a break from the winter weather.

Fans can submit their stories and photos to Visit Myrtle Beach’s Facebook page or Instagram channel ( and using the #ThawMeOut hashtag and share how the winter weather has impacted their family and why they deserve to “thaw out” in Myrtle Beach. Individuals submitting photos and stories will have a chance to win a three-day, two-night vacation to the Myrtle Beach area.

With 60 miles of uninterrupted coastline, the destination offers sunshine, sandy beaches and plenty of attractions and entertainment for visitors. “Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to wipe away the winter blues, thaw out and celebrate nearing the end of winter,” tourism authorities say.

The contest runs through March 31.
