Hi. I was looking into a little Myrtle Beach vacation in mid-to-late April, but I noticed that I could find cheaper hotels in Surfside Beach as opposed to Myrtle Beach, so now I'm considering that option.
I was wondering if I could get some people here to give me the scoop on these beaches, as far as nightlife and general attitude. Is one more family-oriented than the other, does one have more nightlife at one then the other? Are there live music venues? Is one very crowded and one less so? Is the distance between the two beaches walkable?
I do like people and nightlife and excitement, but I am not interested in a lot of sloppy frat-boy bars. I like dive bars and live music and am looking for something with a little of the feel of spring break without a total immersion in crazy drunken college kids.
