We've beeb going to Myrtle Beach every April for years. It is crowded but in the shoulder season (fall and spring) it isn't too bad. We stay in a condo on the Beach. There is also another wonderful beach 10 minutes south. It is part of a state park, Huntington Beach State Park. It's a beautiful beach that you can walk on for miles. There are great restaurants in Murrell's Inlet which is also just south of Myrtle Beach. My husband and I really love this area. There is plenty to do.
