Parking in Myrtle Beach during the popular summer months may get pricey especially with parking garages, parking lots and parking meters located near downtown. For the winter months it is not only a breeze finding a spot, but it is free all day to park down town until March 1st. Plus, parking at Crown Reef is always free for guests (one pass for each standard room and two per suites).
Some of the Grand Strand’s golf courses may close down for post-season maintenance but many of the courses that stay open lower their rates for the winter golfers. See a list of Crown Reef Resort's suggested courses in the area.
