Summer Greetings from Grande Shores

Summer is here and Grande Shores is in full swing with gorgeous weather, beautiful landscaping, and sparking pools! We've had fun and exciting activities, celebrations, and great times! We look forward to seeing you here at our lovely resort! 


HOT Upgrades This Summer!

We've been very busy since the beginning of summer making Grande Shores look even more beautful! We have recently installed a new indoor pool ceiling, which looks fabulous! We've also gotten new pool lounge chairs, updated our elevator cabs, and have updated the 1st floor guest bathrooms. If you've taken a look at our beautiful lawn lately, you're sure to be impressed with the lush greens and lovely new mulch.

Our friends at Mermaid Adventure Swims are at Grande Shores on Tuesdays at 2:30pm during the summer and are also available for private swims and photo shoots. Children of all ages are welcome to don mermaid or shark fins and will learn to swim like a mermaid or shark and participate in fun activities like underwater scavenger hunts, obstacle courses, and fun games! You'll also be able to get some great photos!

"We always have so much fun staying at Grande Shores! Great oceanfront rooms, easy walk on the boardwalk to the ocean. We enjoyed the free DVD's each night. We had breakfast at the restaurant for the first time and loved it!" - Kim W.

"I love staying at the Grande Shores. It's always super extra clean! The staff are always friendly and accommodating. This is the only place we stay every time we come to the beach." - Crystal B.

"Grande Shores was everything we hoped it would be, especially since this was our grandchildren's first trip to the beach. Our condo was clean, spacious and well equipped. We felt right at home. We loved being able to park in the parking garage right outside our room." - Charlene B.

4th of July at Grande Shores

The decorating committee had the best time putting up all the July 4th decorations, we had a photo drop with props for our guests to take pictures. This year, Independence Day started off with major storms rolling through the area, but by the afternoon, we were back to great weather and fun activities! 

 


The Hangout Comes to Myrtle Beach! 

A very fun and exciting restaurant has come to Myrtle Beach - The Hangout! This brand new center for fun and great food and drinks is perfectly located at Broadway at the Beach. You'll find it right across from Ripley's Aquarium and you can't miss it - it's HUGE! The first thing you'll notice is the large stage and grassy area with chairs where live music is performed nightly. There's even a sand pile, foam pit, games, shopping, and more that's fun for the entire family! The fun doesn't stop when you go inside, as you can dine on excellent food and specialty drinks, while participating in dance-offs, hula hooping, and crazy fun! The staff encourages all to particpate (even to dance on your chair or table!), so if you're looking at having a fun experience, this is the spot! Plus - there's a winding slide you can use INSIDE the restaurant! Let's go!
