With Summer being here, there is something we all want in common and that is to finally have a vacation. If you’re anything like me, staying on a budget is a priority. Not having any beaches in Pennsylvania requires beach lovers like me to have to travel outside the state.
But who said you had to go a plane ride away when you could visit nearest vacation spots; Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City and Ocean City Maryland. Have you seen the sunsets here? Talk about breathtaking.
These three destinations all have a little bit of everything we all look for in a vacation; warm weather, pools, beaches and great food. All three destinations are alike because of their long boardwalks and beaches. But Myrtle Beach, in particular, is highly known for their local attractions such as the Hollywood Wax Museum and aquarium. Atlantic City, on the other hand, is widely known for their casinos and nightlife.
OCMD is a family-friendly environment and has a variety of entertainment and sightseeing destinations that will keep you busy. From the local shopping centers to carnival rides and fancy restaurants, you and your kids will never go bored. If you’re on a budget, I would stay away from the boardwalk food, since they tend to be overpriced. Check out the variety of restaurants you can choose from outside your hotel. Try an all you can eat restaurant, and end the night at a live music bar. There is always entertainment and live performances going on at night at the beach as well, so you won’t want to miss out.
