Hear the Rumble... Bikers are coming to the Beach starting this weekend May 13th!

2011 Grand Strand Spring Rally starts this weekend May 13th to 22nd and Atlantic Beach Bike Fest is coming May 27th to 30th.

The 2011 Spring Rally is on! This year's event will be held May 13th to the 22nd, 2011. Even though the city of Myrtle Beach is no longer sponsoring the event, the rest of the Grand Strand including Plantation Resort is ready to welcome you!

This rally, formerly known as the "Myrtle Beach Bike Week," "Crusin' the Coast" or "Myrtle Beach Spring Rally" is now being billed as "The Grand Strand Bike Rally". Approximately 300,000 people make their way to the rally for this 10-day event. The festivities include motorcycle racing, vendors, concerts and parties. The event contends with the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally as one of the most popular motorcycle venues in the United States.

The rumors of the death of the Biker Weeks in Myrtle Beach are unfounded. The helmet law passed by the city of Myrtle Beach was overturned by the South Carolina Supreme Court. So like you see exclaimed on many biker websites: “The Beach is back!”

Atlantic Beach Bike Fest, also known as "Black Bike Week," begins May 27th and runs through Memorial Day weekend to the 30th. It is the largest rocket bike festivial bringing thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts to the Grand Strand area for events, parties and fun.

So come to the Grand Strand, enjoy all the wonderful attractions and great riding on the coastline of SC and NC and have a great time just like times past.

If you need a place to stay, Plantation Resort has condos still available with very competitive rates and are closer than ever to all the action that is found on the south end of the Grand Strand in Murrells Inlet, just a few minutes away. Also, for those who want to bypass Myrtle Beach to reach the events on the north end of the Grand Strand, Plantation Resort’s location makes it easy to access Highway 31 which will take you to North Myrtle Beach’s and Atlantic Beach’s events and beyond into North Carolina.

So come stay with us and bring your bikes. The sun is out, the weather is warm, time to ride!
