The South's Biggest Car Show! The 24th Annual Run to the Sun - March 15th-17th

If you have a muscle car, or you just love them…this is the place to be! 

From March 15th – 17th the city of Myrtle Beach and Pee Dee Street Rodders will present one of the biggest car shows in the South. Fun events, great giveaways and beautiful cars cruisn’ the beach are all planned for this year’s big bash. Bring your camera to snap shots of the Friday night cruise on Ocean Boulevard, or of the car awards on Saturday – there will be plenty of photo ops!
Even the locals brave the crowds to join in the festivities. In fact several employees at Plantation Resort are Run to the Sun loyalists. Terry, a co-worker, Myrtle Beach resident and car show enthusiast said, “You will see any and every kind of classic car or custom street rod that you can imagine. They even have the modern editions of the classics: the Dodge Challenger and Charger along with the new Mustangs are usually there.”   

Ronald Smith, an owner at Plantation Resort from Lincolnton, North Carolina, stays at Plantation Resort 
when he comes for the weekend. He never misses the event because it offers him a chance to “step back in time and enjoy the muscle car era – when cars were really cars”.  

Our favorite part of the weekend? Proceeds from the car show go to The Children’s Miracle Network and The National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Last year, Run to the Sun raised an astonishing $91,800 for these charities!

Plantation Resort is located less than 4 miles south of Myrtle Beach and offers a reprieve from the traffic, noise and crowds of our nearby neighbor. Include a little relaxation into your visit: book a relaxing massage at the Mother Earth Day Spa.  Improve your swing at our on-site golf clinic.  Laze away the day in one of our pools or lazy river.  We're less than 2 miles away from the beach, so in a matter of minutes you'll find yourself with sand between your toes soaking up the warm, springtime rays. For reservations, please call 1-800-845-5039.    

Joins us for the 2012 Run for the Sun. Journey through the nostalgia and memories only the classics can invoke…we hope to see you soon!
