The Canadian travel industry is fuelled year after year by huge volumes of ITC package sales to sun and sand destinations. So does that mean we’re immune to 2019’s travel trends? Not at all.
MYRTLE BEACH — Visit Myrtle Beach’s ‘60 More Days of Summer’ promotion is on its way back, running throughout September and October and offering deep discounts plus fun perks including free beach photo sessions.
“Our beautiful beaches, summer-like temperatures and abundance of year-round activities continue to welcome visitors long after the summer months conclude, making fall an ideal time for millennial families to visit the Myrtle Beach area,” says Scott Schult, EVP Marketing of Visit Myrtle Beach. “Our ‘60 More Days of Summer’ campaign highlights the many opportunities for families with young children to create special moments and start their own family travel traditions this fall.”
Aimed at capturing spontaneous (and priceless) moments – like children experiencing the sand beneath their toes for the first time – Visit Myrtle Beach’s free beach photography sessions each week in September and October will include two complimentary, “holiday-card-worthy” images perfect for sharing.
Sessions are limited and sign-up in advance is required at www.VisitMyrtleBeach.com/60Days.
