Introducing Daycations with North Myrtle Beach!

Are you ready to hop in the Parks and Recreation van with us and visit some cities in the Carolinas? Then Daycations is the program for you. Each month we will be visiting a new city, festival, or attraction to get you out and seeing the beautiful Carolinas through our Daycation Destinations. Our trips are limited to a small group, as we use the Parks and Recreation van to keep costs down.
