Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Celebrates
57th Annual Can-Am Days with Discounts for Canadian Visitors
Myrtle Beach Area Offering Steep Discounts to Canadian Travelers During the Spring
to Help “Offset” Difference in Canadian Exchange Rate
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (February 13, 2018) –Though the 57th annual Canadian-American Festival lasts just one week – March 10 – 18, 2018 – select Myrtle Beach area hotels, merchants and attractions are offering tremendous discounts throughout spring for Canadian travelers. Ranging from 25 to as much as 55 percent, the discounts are designed to help Canadians “make up” the difference in the Canadian exchange rate. Through May 2018, travelers with a valid Canadian passport can receive discounts at select hotels, attractions, golf courses, restaurants and live entertainment venues during their visit to the Myrtle Beach Area.
The Can-Am discounts are offered to offset at least a portion of the 80-cent-on-the-dollar Canadian to U.S. dollar ratio. The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and its partners hope that with these discounts, Myrtle Beach will continue to be a popular, affordable destination for Canadians looking the escape the cold this spring.
“We have seen a growing number of Canadian visitors to the Myrtle Beach area, especially in the past decade,” said Julie Ellis, public relations and communications manager for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB. “The late winter and early spring seasons offer mild weather, more affordable accommodations and more elbow room at area attractions. The special promotions for our Canadian neighbors provide even more incentive by bridging the gap in the exchange rate.”
Several hotels, resorts and attractions are offering deep discounts during Can-Am Days and throughout the spring for Canadian visitors. A sampling of lodging and accommodations offering discounts include:
Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark Grande Shores Ocean Resort
Landmark Oceanfront Resort Ocean Creek Resort
