Many consider a holiday on the beach with their family as the best way to de-stress. But with soaring prices of gas, recession and a tighter budget many are trying to curtail their holiday expenses by either trying to spend time in their home or by shortening their stay or indulge in just a days activity at the amusement park.
There are some who wouldn't like to compromise when it comes to having fun and vacationing. These breeds of vacationers have found a way of holidaying on the beach at a bargain price at an upscale resort.
The trick lies in you ability to judge the peak season and the slack season of various beach towns. There are some beach towns that have summer as their slack period. Resorts during such seasons offer great discount and packages for tourists.
Take the example of Myrtle Beach which has about 60 miles of the Atlantic Ocean beach. Hotels and restaurants here make maximum profits during summers when most tourists visit the place for vacation.
But this place being the World Capital of Golf houses nearly 100 courses with villas and condos constructed along its fairways. These villas are occupied by golfers during spring and fall and remain empty during summers. The villas make a great place to lodge for the whole family. Besides, the convenience of not being very far from the beach it cost just about half of what you would pay for a cramped hotel room. This way you will have a great vacation even if you are on a shoe-string budget.
The money that you save on accommodation can be used for other things like treating your kids at the water park or for dining at your favourite restaurant or on adventurous sports on the beach.
Some of the villas here have outstanding trained staff to provide great service to their guests. The villas here are perfect place to catch a glimpse of sea birds like ibis, egrets and osprey. The property is all equipped with tennis courts, pools and gourmet dining place. With world-class restaurants and shopping destinations not very far and the sound of crashing waves the need to go out of this luxurious enclave may not be required.
It is these amenities that draw vacationers, beachgoers and golfers to such places. To have a good time on the beach you need not book an oceanfront resort. Hunt thoroughly and you will definitely find some great deals.
