South - Travel options to Myrtle Beach
May 5, 10, 10:13 am
My fiance has a conference coming up in July in Myrtle Beach, and I've been looking into airfare options for her. Unfortunately, we may have to end up paying for this ourselves (long story that I won't go into). I see that fares for IAH-MYR are about $500+, which is just a bit too rich for our blood. Kayak suggests FLO as an alternate, and fares there are about $200 cheaper, so renting a car is certainly an option. Does anyone have any other suggestions on alternate airports and transportation to/from Myrtle Beach?

I've flown into FLO several times. Very small airport but nice. The drive from Florence to Myrtle isn't too bad, took me perhaps an hour and twenty minutes or so. For me, saving $200 would be well worth the drive. FLO is your closest alternate and probably the cheapest. I recently had business travel to this area of SC and I always found fares to Florence to be cheaper than Columbia, Myrtle, or Charleston.

ILM is about 75 miles away, CHS would be 100 miles to Myrtle Beach. I would check fares to them, too.
