From the moment you welcome a new baby into your life, until they leave home, there’s barely an hour that is unaffected, during sleeping and waking hours alike. Traveling is just one part of that big picture. Chances are that it will be many years before your beach vacations involve long hours of snoozing in the lounge chair, daydreaming to the sound of waves, and if that’s what you have in mind, you’ll be disappointed.

With a young child, you’ll be playing with the sand rather than lying in it and feeding the seagulls rather than listening to them or chasing them off. You’ll be kneeling and squatting more often than lying in it. You’ll further discover the small wonders of the earth as seen through a child’s eyes – tiny seashells, shiny rocks, baby crabs, crunchy dried seaweed, and lots more. These are the gifts that come with children.

When you have children every trip turns into an adventure. Things go smoother when you approach things that way. From the moment you set foot into whichever of the North Myrtle Beach hotels you’ve chosen to stay in until the moment you hop in the car to head home, anything can happen in your child’s mind. Remember that adventure is not so much a destination as it is an attitude and have fun with it.

Luckily, Tilghman resort is enjoys a convenient location that is just a few steps from the ocean and just a short drive from some of the area’s most family friendly attractions – so you won’t have to look far for ways to keep the little one’s busy. Broadway at The Beach is the entertainment mecca is the area, full of attractions for both the young and old. You can explore your nautical side at The Ripley’s Aquarium, catch a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game, or even get wet n’ wild at Myrtle Waves water park.

Always make your reservations for North Myrtle Beach hotels long before you leave home and this is even more important when traveling with children. Keep an open mind as you set out on your journey and keep an expectation of fun. You surely won’t be disappointed.
