Summer Vacation… For Parents!

Summer is flying by and the kids will be headed back to school before you know it. And while it’s supposed to be a relaxing time for all, if you’re like the majority you’ve been running around getting your kids squared away at camp or busy trying to keep up with a lengthy list of seasonal activities. At times, it may even seem like it’d be easier on parents if the kids were back in their school routine with a consistent schedule. It almost sounds like (brace yourselves!) parents are the ones that need a summer vacation!

That’s right. We said it! Parents sometimes need vacations too. Whether it’s to reconnect, disconnect or just to simply take a breather – treat yourself with a vacation (even if it’s just for a weekend) before the summers over. This week on the blog we’re featuring resorts in some of our favorite destinations that are perfect for relaxing and recharging.

It’s time to enlist the help of your best friend, your parents or your family to pull together and take over parental duties for a few days because it’s time for a kid free vacation! Whether you’ve got a week or just a weekend, we have the perfect locations for your kids free vacation.

Murrells Inlet, South Carolina is home to the Ellington which is located just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. Murrells Inlet is an old fishing village that offers a small, relaxing oasis away from the main strip of Beach activity. Accommodations at the Ellington include one, two and three-bedroom condos – all with full kitchens, spacious living quarters and screened in porches. And although it’s not beach front, the Ellington still has plenty of resort style amenities that help make this the perfect destination for a kids free getaway. Onsite you’ll find the Wachesaw Plantation Golf course (ideal for golfers of all skill levels), an indoor and outdoor pool, miniature golf, fitness facilities, a pro shop and restaurant. Hit the beach if you chose (the resort provides complimentary Huntington Beach State Park access passes) but know the Ellington has all you need right at your fingertips!

Whether you have a few weeks to plan or decide to travel at the drop of a hat, our availability and rates offer accommodations for all. So grab your significant other, get the kids organized for their weekend (or week!) with grandma and grandpa and get ready to enjoy a kids free summer vacation! We hope your travels are nothing but relaxing and care free!
