Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach Ranked Top 10 Family Resorts by Today Show & Trip Advisor

Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach

There’s no shortage of amenity packed resorts in Myrtle Beach – but there’s also no other resort quite like the Dunes Village. The Today Show and TripAdvisor recently partnered to release their  list of the Top 10 Family Resorts in the United States, which considered everything from traveler reviews, family friendly amenities, and price when ranking their top choices. Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach garnered the #4 spot on this coveted list, and was the only award winner from the area.

So what makes Dunes Village Resort worthy of national recognition? Here’s an insider’s look at our most popular resort in Myrtle Beach:

Located in the very desirable northern end of Myrtle Beach referred to as the “Golden Mile”, the beachfront at Dunes Village is wider and less crowded than other areas in Myrtle Beach.  The two towers feature studio suites and 1 to 4 bedroom oceanfront condos, that are superbly appointed with all the modern amenities for today’s vacationer. Flat screen TVs, free wireless internet, full kitchens and washer/dryers are just a few of the things that make Dunes Village condo rentals feel like home – but as soon as you step out onto your sprawling oceanfront balcony, you will immediately feel a world away.

If you’re looking for fun in the sun (or even in the rain!), Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach is the place to be – with a huge oceanfront pool deck, hot tub and lazy river, there’s plenty of amenities to enjoy in the warm South Carolina sunshine.

But this is where Dunes Village sets itself apart from the competition: not only does this resort have top notch outdoor amenities, but their indoor amenities are simply outstanding – with TWO indoor water parks totaling 30,000 square feet, there isn’t another resort on the beach that comes close to offering this amount of FUN all in one place! And the fun isn’t just for kids – Dunes Village is the only resort in Myrtle Beach to offer adult-sized indoor water slides, ensuring everyone in the family has a blast. Within the indoor water parks there is also ping pong, shuffleboard and pool tables. The fun never ends!

The children’s summer program is second-to-none, with daily activities that include arts and crafts, face painting, magic shows, games and more. On-site dining options include the Admiral’s Cafe for lunch and dinner, and the Captain’s Cafe on the 6th floor offers breakfast set to an incredible oceanfront backdrop. There’s also Perk’s Up coffee shop which brews Starbucks coffee and has tasty breakfast items and snacks, and a poolside tiki bar that serves lunch and cocktails around the pool. New tennis courts were just put in last year, and there’s also basketball courts and a great fitness center.

Carolina Country Music Fest: The Nation’s Largest Outdoor Country Music Festival

CCMF 2017

In September of 2006, the Myrtle Beach Area said goodbye to a landmark for visitors and locals alike. The Pavilion Amusement Park  was a staple attraction located on historic Ocean Boulevard in the heart of Myrtle Beach. The 11 acre park provided 3 generations of family fun, serving millions of smiling faces since 1948. More than a decade after its closure, the land where the Pavilion once stood is just as vacant as it was in late 2006. The prime property had seen several potential projects fall by the wayside, and doubts began to surface if the land would be re-purposed. Then in the summer 2015, the Pavilion’s valuable acreage near the ocean had its next big project, and it didn’t require any construction… Carolina Country Music Fest!

The Carolina Country Music Fest’s inaugural year in the summer of 2015 was a massive success, as thousands of visitors flocked to the Pavilion grounds to see mega country stars including Big & Rich, Rascal Flats, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, and many more! Saturday night’s show in 2015 saw a gathering of more than 19,000 country music fans, cementing the notion that Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF) in Myrtle Beach was on the map for major music festivals in North America.

 

CCMF 2016 saw an even bigger lineup of stars including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Florida Georgia Line as the headliners for the festival’s second year. With more vendors, bigger stages, and another heavy-hitting lineup of talent, CCMF 2016 surpassed its inaugural year’s numbers in attendance, and coined the headline as, “The Southeast’s largest outdoor music event.”

2017 looks to be the best yet for the country’s preeminent summer country music festival in Myrtle Beach. This year, CCMF will be headlined by some of country’s biggest stars, including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Big & Rich, and South Carolina’s very own Darius Rucker. There is no doubt that the 11 acre lot where the historic Pavilion once stood is the most exciting piece of vacant land in the Southeast!
