Myrtle Beach Ranked Second in Google Flights’ Top Family Travel Destinations for Summer 2024

Myrtle Beach has clinched a top spot as a premier destination for families this summer, according to recent data from Google Flights. The popular travel planning tool revealed that Myrtle Beach was the second most searched-for destination for family travel, following Turks and Caicos. This distinction is based on searches for travel between June 1 to August 31, 2024, indicating significant interest in family vacations during these peak summer months of this year.

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau celebrated this ranking, noting Myrtle Beach as the sole U.S.-based destination among the top five, which also includes international hotspots like Jamaica, Cancun, and Aruba. This recognition underscores the city’s appeal as a family-friendly location with its wide beaches, warm weather, and a variety of events and activities.

Local tourism leaders are optimistic that the upcoming summer events, including the World’s Strongest Man competition and the Myrtle Beach Classic PGA TOUR event, will further drive the interest of families looking for a dynamic vacation spot. The city’s ability to attract visitors with its diverse offerings cements its status as a top choice for those planning their summer getaways, aligning with the trends observed on Google Flights.
