Myrtle Beach vs. Virginia Beach

We’re back from vacationing at Myrtle Beach, SC. Since we live in the Hampton Roads area (Virginia Beach, VA), I was comparing the two beach towns. This was actually my second time visiting Myrtle Beach. I think Myrtle Beach is more commercialized with more touristy things to do, if that’s what you’re looking for. There are more beach/surf shops, miniature golf, haunted houses, etc. Virginia Beach has two strips of shops, hotels, and restaurants running parallel to the beach, but that’s about it. When you spread out a block away from the water, you immediately hit housing communities. The Virginia Beach economy doesn’t seem to thrive on tourism alone, which is the impression I got from Myrtle Beach. As far as the beaches themselves, it’s about the same. Ocean beaches are never going to be as gorgeous as Gulf of Mexico beaches. *sigh* I miss Florida!
