Myrtle Beach boasts 60 miles of shoreline to build sandcastles, search for shells, work on your tan and make new family memories. Myrtle Beach is a vacation spot focal point brimming with options for all travelers, especially families.

These properties accommodate families of all types. Plan your next vacay with this list of the best Myrtle Beach resorts for families.
