Vacation Myrtle Beach Resorts to Offer Specials Based on Whether or Not Punxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow


Groundhog on Groundhog DayMyrtle Beach, S.C. – Visitors of Vacation Myrtle Beach will be watching closely to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on February 2. In a town where there is an average of more than 200 sunny days per year, six more weeks of a mild winter would not necessarily be a bad thing.


“We’re going to leave this special up to Punxsutawney Phil and let him make the call on this one for us!  If he decides we get six more weeks of winter, then we’ll have a great winter special.  If he decides that spring is coming early, then we’ve got a special to celebrate that as well,” said Matt Klugman of Vacation Myrtle Beach.  “Either way, we’re confident Phil is going to pick out a great deal for our visitors to get some great beach time.” 


If the groundhog sees his shadow, they will be offering an exciting winter special for those looking to book a stay in Myrtle Beach. With mild temperatures and plenty of sunny days, winter is an excellent time to visit Myrtle Beach, Klugman said.


However, if the groundhog does not see its shadow, predicting that spring will arrive early, the group of 14 resorts will offer a spring deal, which will be valid for most stay dates beginning February 2 through late spring.


Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts offer an array of amenities that can be enjoyed no matter what season it is including indoor pools, an oceanfront year-round waterpark, whirlpools, oceanfront dining and even an on-site bowling alley.


“Myrtle Beach is a year-round destination and that has been a well-kept secret for many years,” he said. “We want people to realize that they can have an amazing experience here whether it’s in the winter or spring.”


Vacation Myrtle Beach’s Groundhog Day Special will be valid for booking on February 2 only and will be revealed that morning.
