Most Crowded Spring Break Destinations: Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, SC

Until the 2010 opening of a 1.2-mile boardwalk revitalized the beachfront, Myrtle Beach’s vibe felt a bit honky-tonk and down on its luck. But that didn’t keep the springtime crowds from this beach town, and they’re still coming. (Myrtle Beach’s annual Canadian-American Days in March celebrates the longtime tradition of snowbirds migrating to these waters, even though they’re not exactly Caribbean temperature). The influx of party people continues with Harley Bike Week in May, which segues into the frenzied graduation antics of Senior Week, and then hurtles straight into the vacation crowds of summer.
