Hi, We are planning a trip the week of labor day to Myrtle. I have come to Myrtle every year for over 20 years but took a break for a few and came back last year. For those 20 years we always stayed in the Carolina Winds/76th ave n area of Myrtle Beach in small private condos. I loved the location, but the beach was too crowded. We stayed at Lands End Resort in North Myrtle and I did not really care for it. The beach was nice but the resort was too big and not as clean as we would have liked. This year we are considering a home in Garden City or a condo at North Beach Plantation. Mainly in our group we spend the entire day and early evening on the beach and head out a few times here and there, but we have two members that like to be on the go and everywhere every day so we are trying to find middle ground. Any suggestions? Also for all my years at Myrtle I've never been to Garden CIty/Surfside area. Is it nice, clean? I keep thinking since it is south its going to look like the area in the Strand and in South Myrtle, will it?
Oh on another note, how crowded is labor day in Myrtle? We were coming in Sunday of labor day weekend to Sunday.
