Myrtle Beach without college students

Would like to visit Myrtle Beach for the 1st time and hope to go over spring bring. Don't need to be with a bunch of college students.... we're a family of 4... kids are 9 and 14. Are we going to be overwhelmed with the number of college kids? Is April a prime time to hit the beach?

I think you will be fine. Im sure there might be some college kids there but not many. They tend to go further south where it's warmer. MB can still be rather chilly in April at times so I dont think college kids will be a problem for you. Hope you have a great time!!

The majority of properties here have a minimum age rental policy due to past experience with students. At our resort it is 23, some go as high as 25. Just inquire as to the policy at whatever choice accommodations you select.

Like the first poster said, most college students tend to head further south for warmer weather. AND...most college breaks are not around Easter break like school age kids are. They tend to be in mid to late March.

We went in April for 20 years and never had an issue with college students.

Went last year in April as well and no college crowds. Really it's not a big college crowd destination. They are looking for much hotter weather than MB has that time of year.

Do yourself a favor and find out when the Gettysburg, PA college week is! We spent a week down there last May at the Long Bay Resort and it was full of Gettysburg College students - I have never in my life seen more rude, loud, uncouth people! They trashed the LBR - wrecks closing the parking garage and pool area, beer cans and clothing left everywhere, rib bones all over the patio areas. It was horrible! And the noise! Ugh! After my complaints, the LBR mgr told me by phone they wouldn't be allowing that college back...but I see the reviews from this May and people had the same problems!
