Sabrina Dorfman's avatar By Sabrina Dorfman Follow me on Google+

Vacations, as fun as they are, may quickly become pricey as you and your family are eating out at restaurants and spending on activities.  An easy and wise way to keep track of your spending while on vacation is by creating a budget and a spending limit for your family for each day.  There are numerous exciting activities to be had with the kids at and near the beach. 


- Inquire about breakfast packages while booking your get away with Caravelle Resort.  The resort offers breakfast at a discounted rate when you include it with your reservation. 

- Eating out can be one of the most costly ventures that many splurge on while on vacation. Making a creative lunch is one way that can help cut spending costs on food.  Whether you are out at the beach, playing mini golf or shopping the strip, bringing sandwiches and snack foods is a smart and savvy way to save while out and about in Myrtle Beach. 


- The entertainment life in Myrtle Beach is popping!  Just because there are things to do and places to see, does not mean you have to break the bank to give your family an unforgettable experience.  Pick one activity that involves spending per day so that you may take advantage of the free fun that your family can have together. 

-Splurge on: Alabama Theatre has a new show that is free for kids 16 and under when you use the VMB Card.  This theatre combines music, dancing and dazzling visual elements to make for an exquisite experience. 

-Save on: One family-inclusive sport that is free, fun and on the beach is sand volleyball. During the warm seasons, there are volleyball nets set up right off of Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach.  This game allows for some physical fun, a chance to catch sun, and possibility to meet fellow visitors that may wish to join in your game.  No worries about getting too hot, the ocean is only a quick walk away. 

-Splurge on: Myrtle Waves Water Park is a great way to spend the day with your family because this attraction has something fun for everyone.  It is the largest water park in South Carolina and has 22 water rides to accommodate all age ranges. 

-Save on:  A sandcastle tournament! Nothing more than a short walk from your hotel room at The Caravelle Resort, the beach is the most popular attraction of the area and has endless possibilities for those with an imagination.  Sand and water are the only ingredients required for a family friendly competition to determine the best builder.  Watch out for high tide -- it may flatten your sand estate to the ground. 

These are just a few ways listed that may guide you in having a wallet-safe vacation without jeopardizing the fun to be had.  Enjoy your vacation to the full extent.  Take advantage of the convenient, entertaining amenities at the resort and check out the many more money saving ideas that come with the VMB card.  They are available for free, at the front desk when you check in.  We can't wait for you to join us for some fabulous fun.  Click here or call us today!
