7 Social Media Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Myrtle Beach


Think about your favorite beach memories. Your first time seeing the ocean. Your child’s first steps on the sand. Your first vacation with your husband or wife. There’s nothing like the beach to create those warm and fuzzy feelings that you only get when the worries of work and school are a distant memory, and good times are the only things on your mind.

The power and popularity of social media have made it easy to instantly share beach and vacation photos with family and friends. It’s the next best thing to actually being there, because there’s practically no limit to the amount of photos one can share. Here are some quick tips for getting the best photos on your vacation:

• Start early, at least for one day. Vacation is all about kicking back, leaving your watch at home and turning off the alarm clock. Except for one day. Do yourself a favor and pick a day to wake up early and watch the sun rise over the ocean. An ocean sunrise is truly breathtaking. Your camera and your followers will thank you!

• Don’t be afraid to talk to strangers. When you’re with a group of friends or your family, no one wants to be the one who is left out of all the photos because they had to be a photographer. Hey, was Dad on vacation with you? People are generally friendly when they’re on vacation, and now you have your whole group in your memorable photos.

• Take a selfie, it’s ok. Yes, it’s true that selfies have taken over the world. But there’s a difference between taking a selfie in your room five times a day and taking a selfie when you’re in Myrtle Beach once a year. Make it fun – get a palm tree or a pelican in the background.
