Vacation Myrtle Beach Groundhog Day Specials

Vacation Myrtle Beach Groundhog Day Specials

Are you ready to escape the snow and see some sunshine? Vacation Myrtle Beach Resorts will be offering specials based on whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow this year. I have stayed at a couple of Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts and, I have to say, they are pretty sweet. If you want to learn more about the ones we stayed at, be sure to check out our posts on Landmark Resort and Sea Watch Resort. Now, let’s check out how you can get these Vacation Myrtle Beach Groundhog Day Specials, shall we?

Vacation Myrtle Beach Groundhog Day Specials

Visitors of Vacation Myrtle Beach will be watching closely to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on February 2. In a town where there is an average of more than 200 sunny days per year, six more weeks of a mild winter would not necessarily be a bad thing.

“We’re going to leave this special up to Punxsutawney Phil and let him make the call on this one for us! If he decides we get six more weeks of winter, then we’ll have a great winter special. If he decides that spring is coming early, then we’ve got a special to celebrate that as well,” said Matt Klugman of Vacation Myrtle Beach. “Either way, we’re confident Phil is going to pick out a great deal for our visitors to get some great beach time.”

“If the groundhog sees his shadow, they will be offering an exciting winter special for those looking to book a stay in Myrtle Beach. With mild temperatures and plenty of sunny days, winter is an excellent time to visit Myrtle Beach,” Klugman said.

However, if the groundhog does not see its shadow, predicting that spring will arrive early, the group of 14 resorts will offer a spring deal, which will be valid for most stay dates beginning February 2 through late spring.

Vacation Myrtle Beach Resorts offer an array of amenities that can be enjoyed no matter what season it is including indoor pools, an oceanfront year-round waterpark, whirlpools, oceanfront dining and even an on-site bowling alley.

“Myrtle Beach is a year-round destination and that has been a well-kept secret for many years,” he said. “We want people to realize that they can have an amazing experience here whether it’s in the winter or spring.”

Vacation Myrtle Beach’s Groundhog Day Special will be valid for booking on February 2 only and will be revealed that morning. Those interested in receiving the deal can sign up for any of the resort newsletters here.

  1. We have several friends who love to go to Myrtle Beach and can’t say enough how great a place it is. Guess I am going to have to put this on my list of visit.

  2. Myrtle Beach is one of my favorite beaches to visit in the states. I love the vibe of the town, and the beaches are absolutely gorgeous.

  3. I’m a huge beach lover, having lived almost my entire life in the Ocean State. I’ve never gotten a chance to go to Myrtle Beach. I know my family would love it.

  4. Usually around this time of year I am dreaming of the snow melting, but this week has been in the 80’s so far in Texas. It is depressing that the groundhog saw his shadow this morning because I’m sure the temps are going to drop!

  5. I am a big fan of going to myrtle beach and just enjoying to ocean and having a great time. Its only about 5 hours from home so it great for a weekend vacation.

  6. I wish I was close enough to do that! It be fun to have a vacation right there on the beach. I hope at some point I make it down to Myrtle Beach because I have heard it is beautiful.

  7. I never think about Myrtle Beach. It is so rarely on my mind, I just don’t know much about it as a vacation destination. It looks like it is though! I need to do some more research and plan a trip!

  8. I have been to Myrtle Beach only twice in my life! I love getting good deals, so I’m checking these out.

  9. Tamra Phelps says:

    I never thought of looking for groundhog Day specials, lol. But that’s a good idea for the place! This would be a nice time to vacation there, too, with probably fewer tourists.

  10. Oh my you have no idea how sick of winter i am right now! It is still so very cold here in Chicago – I almost am ready to go into hibernation for the next month! I totally would love to sneak down to Myrtle Beach!

  11. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    We loved Myrtle Beach when we visited! These are great deals for anyone wanting to get away for a little while.

  12. I would love to visit Myrtle Beach with my family one day soon. It’s definitely one of the places I’d love to visit if we do a trip within the U.S. Thanks for the reminder!

  13. Natalie Z says:

    I remember going to Myrtle Beach when I was a child. It was so enjoyable! This reminds me how great it is and that I need to take my boys!

  14. Claudia Krusch says:

    I think it is a great idea to offer a deal depending on if the groundhog sees his shadow. I have been dreaming of getting back to Myrtle Beach.

  15. I love that slide!!! I’ve never been to Myrtle beach and it looks like a place I’d love to see!

  16. My college best friend is now living in South Carolina and she has been nagging me to come over for a visit so she can take me to Myrtle Beach. I might accept her invite and fly over in the summer.

  17. Wow! That oceanfront year-round water park looks amazing! I would love to stay in a hotel that has their own water park. My daughter would be in heaven!

  18. I have never been to Myrtle Beach, it looks like the perfect family vacation spot. Love that the deals depend will be dictated by the groundhog and weather it looks at his shadow or not. 🙂

  19. My mom vacations there every year and I keep saying I’m going to as well. I think I’ll check out the specials to see if it’s doable this year.
