Fly direct to Myrtle Beach from Chicago Dallas


Myrtle Beach has traditionally been a destination that attracts a lot of Northeast traffic from cities like New York, Philadelphia and Boston. It's also traditionally been a 'drive-to' market. When I lived there I met countless Canadians on the golf course who’d made 10-14 hour drives to the beach.

But Myrtle Beach has continued to make the push for more flights in recent years. Last year it added a non-stop flight from Chicago via Spirit, and this winter, they've added Dallas (beginning April 6, just in time for Myrtle's peak golf season). Now, Myrtle Beach can compete with the likes of Arizona, California and Mexico – all mainstay long weekend getaways for Texas golfers.

Flying into Myrtle Beach is very easy, and is especially affordable from most northeastern cities. The airport is small enough to get in and out very quickly (they also know how to handle golf bags), and it’s located right in the middle of everything. Many airlines service MYR too, most heavily by U.S. Airways, Delta and Spirit.

If you're considering flying to the beach and passing up on the cost of a rental car, it can be done at a few resorts like Barefoot Resort, Legends Resort, Litchfield Golf & Beach Club or Grande Dunes. Each has multiple golf courses onsite, shuttle services plus plenty more options within a quick cab's drive.
