WE plan on 2 months in Myrtle Beach..we are seniors..we are thinking of Island Vista or Beach Cove...we would appreciate any thoughts or other suggestions....Thank you Valerie
Both of these are "top of the line" resorts that both sit somewhat "off by themselves" (not sandwiched between other hi-rises).
The main difference is their locations:
IV is north of the "downtown" area in central Myrtle Beach.
BC is in the southern tip of the "Windy Hill" section of North Myrtle Beach (a separate town) and just north of the boundary line of the relatively barren "Briarcliffe" section.
Depending on your mobility, there are things you can walk to (perhaps Barefoot Landing if you don't mind crossing major highways), but either spot would involve a little more driving than other resorts. Perhaps not an issue.
Also, if you would be interested in resorts that cater to their snowbirds with social programs, trips, pool parties, shuffleboard tournaments and group aqua-aerobics, etc., maybe start a thread on that topic. Two that come to mind are Long Bay (in the north end of MB) and Compass Cove (in the south end), but I'm sure there are plenty of others. Probably your choices would as well.
There are other resorts that seem to be favored by fellow Canadian snowbirds.
