Greetings from Grande Shores!
Spring weather has arrived, bringing an influx of tourists and visitors to the Myrtle Beach area. Golf season is now in full swing. Many golf groups visit to experience the warmer temperatures and beautiful landscaping that graces the local golf courses during the spring season.
Beyond the golfing season, we look forward to the Horry County Fair, hosted annually at the Myrtle Beach Speedway. This family friendly event will be held on April 20-29, 2018 and features rides, live entertainment, a Battle of the Bands, and great food options.
Now is also the perfect time to book your beach vacation. The earlier you book, the more you save! To make your reservation at Grande Shores please call 1-877-290-0897 or check our rates online.

New Bedding Coming Soon to Condo Units
Next time you check-in to your condo at Grande Shores, you will notice a fresh new look in the bedrooms.
New bedding has arrived and and will be installed by the beginning of May in all of our condo units.
We are pleased to be offering white comforters which offer a clean look along with bright accent pillows for a pop of color. "We know our guests will enjoy a great night sleep or refreshing vacation nap with the addition of our new comforters!" said Debbie Braden, General Manager.
We had a great time watching our new mural take shape. The main entrance to the indoor pool is located in the parking garage, and we have wanted to dress this area up for some time now.
This winter we were able to have Donald Perry, a local artist, come in and assist us with the creation of a mural. The mural brightens up the entire area from the front door to the elevators. New lighting has been ordered to brighten up the space even more.
We hope our guests and homeowners will enjoy this new decorative element.
"A Ride to Remember" Bake Sale
Every year, Mark Gillis, Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts IT, participates in "A Ride to Remember" to raise money for a cause that is close to his heart. "A Ride to Remember" is a 3-day charity ride taking cyclists across the state of South Carolina to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.
Our employees baked goodies and hosted a bake sale in support of Gillis' effort. We are proud to announce that our bake sale was a huge success this year! Thanks to our generous guests and staff, we raised $600 for "A Ride to Remember".

Another EGGcellent Easter
Easter is always an exciting time for our guests and staff as we host many activities around the resort.
Highlights of the fun weekend include our jelly bean count contest, coloring contest, and a duck race for charity on the oceanfront lazy river. The Easter Bunny even stopped by to have breakfast with our guests Easter morning!
Kids of all ages loved the annual Easter egg hunt. Hundreds of Easter eggs were scattered across the oceanfront lawn for kids to find! It was wonderful watching all the families have fun together.
We look forward to next year's celebration!
