It has been confirmed! Myrtle Beach is the most searched for beach vacation destination in the United States. This statistic has recently been released by Google. According to the search engine giant, Myrtle Beach was the second most often vacation destination searched on their site this year, and the first and only beach destination in the top five.
The top five researched vacation destinations this year were:

- New York City
This ranking comes as no surprise to anyone that has visited the Grand Strand area lately. It was only 5 years ago that Myrtle Beach was not even a consideration for many travelers. However, increased exposure to the many wonders of the area by the local Convention and Visitors Bureau has changed that opinion. Through much effort and marketing, the CVB worked continually to boost web traffic to their site and encourage people to experience the Grand Strand. Since 2008, the official Myrtle Beach site has seen an increase of 128% in unique traffic.
Pristine beaches, great golfing, cultural and artistic events, amusement areas, incredible eateries, and a breath-taking boardwalk are what make Myrtle Beach special. Warm weather, southern charm and ocean breezes make Myrtle Beach enchanting. It is no wonder that the only place that beat Myrtle Beach on the list is a place that contains a magic kingdom.
