Surf Side Beach - family getaway in early April

I have not been here before. I have looked at a few rentals for a week and they look decent. Can someone comment on the area. We typically go to Emerald Isle NC. We have been to North Myrtle which was fine.....I find the further south I went the more congested things got. Is Surf Side as commercial as Myrtle?

Thanks,

J

Surfside is very similar to North Myrtle. During April, there won't be much congestions (more in MB than Surfside). Surfside is nowhere near as 'commercial' as Myrtle.

Surfside is the family beach. Just a few hotels and more beach house rentals. So less people there. There are still restaurants and bars, ice cream etc.

Quick drive to Myrtle if you want.

I consider it the best part of Myrtle area.

My favorite! Best of both worlds because it's a short drive to MB but much less crowded. Mostly low-rise condo complex.

I too prefer Surfside Beach due to it being less commercial.

As an added benefit, it is closer to Murrells Inlet for dinner.

I have rented with http://www.surfsiderealty.com/ and http://www.dunes.com/
