Beach season may have come to an end but that doesn’t mean fall beach travel should be out of the question when searching for your next vacation destination! While you may have to adjust your activities from swimming and sunning to off-the-water activities - there’s still plenty of reasons why the beach is great for off season travel.
This week on the blog, we’re featuring one of our favorite resorts in one of our favorite locations – the Ellington at Wachesaw Plantation East in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina!
Located just south of Myrtle Beach, you may know this area as the extremely popular east coast summer travel destination. But when the summer ends and the beach goers have headed home, the town is given a chance to share a different side with its travelers.
As the hustle and bustle of summer dies down, a calming more relaxing vibe is spread over the Myrtle Beach area - and the Ellington is no exception! The former fishing village of Murrells Inlet offers Southern hospitality, award-winning golf courses and a quiet atmosphere to its off-season travelers.
Among the activities that you’ll find in the area, golf is among the most popular. The Myrtle Beach heat has cooled and gives way to comfortable and cooler weather – perfect for hitting the greens! With over 100+ area golf courses, the choices in Myrtle Beach are endless, but who doesn’t want to wake up and walk out on to the course each day?! The Wachesaw Plantation Club is an award-winning course located on property at the Ellington Resort. Welcoming to guests of any skill level, the course is designed to take advantage of the geographical beauty and elevation changes (not typical to the area). Enjoy the all-day challenges this course can provide or simply just brush up on your skills, playing a round with your family. Stop by the pro shop before or after you play or grab a bite to eat at the onsite restaurant and bar. Interested in the more competitive side of golf? Keep an eye on the Wachesaw Plantation East’s tournament schedule! View tee times and book here!
Once you’ve tired yourself out, there’s no better place to call “home” than Ellington. The property features resort amenities including both indoor and outdoor pools, miniature golf, fitness facilities and concierge services. Whether you are looking to travel as a couple or with your family, Ellington has unit sizes that accommodate all. Each two-story building houses one, two and three-bedroom condos that are equipped with full kitchens, spacious living areas and screened-in porches. You may even find yourself with a golf course view! At the Ellington, you’ll find everything you’d ever need to enjoy a relaxing, yet fun filled vacation.
Golf season is in full swing and we hope we’ve helped convince you that a trip to the Ellington is guaran-teed to be a hole in one!
