Myrtle Beach

Double Tree Hilton Myrtle Beach

This oceanside resort mecca is the hub of South Carolina's Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of sand on the Atlantic Coast. The destination's allure goes beyond its beaches and boardwalks: Myrtle Beach offers hundreds of golf courses; old-style amusement parks, including a 187-foot-tall Ferris wheel; and much more.

Minutes from the airport is the 452-room DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Myrtle Beach Oceanfront, which offers direct access to the beach. The recently renovated property has approximately 138,000 square feet of event space, with three beachfront ballrooms and a 48-booth exhibition hall.

Good options for group outings: shows at the Carolina Opry Theater, wine-tasting at Duplin Winery and golf at the famed Legends Golf Resort.
