Starting in early March, the Myrtle Beach Bike Week West will introduce a Motorcycle Expo just 2 hours west of us in Florence, South Carolina. This first-time event will offer vintage motorcycle displays, bike shows, live entertainment, custom builders and much more.
Then join the party on Easter weekend when the top two bars in Murrells Inlet – Suck Bang Blow and The Beaver Bar –host the Rockabunny Rumble. This 3-day event will feature rat rods, rat bikes, vintage cars, choppers, rumble games, live music and lots of other exciting venues.
Of course all of these events are merely opening acts for the real party in May: the newly extended 2012 Myrtle Beach Bike Week. This traditionally week-long event now includes 2 weekends spanning a total of ten days. The expanded venue also means the Spring Rally will overlap with the Atlantic Beach Bike Week, creating the ultimate atmosphere of fun, parties and of course riding!
This year the activities will largely take place in North Myrtle Beach, and in Murrells Inlet -- just south of Myrtle Beach. Many people mistake Myrtle Beach for the entire Grand Strand. What they don't realize is that the Grand Strand is 60 miles of beautiful coastline and Myrtle Beach is only 14 miles of the beach. So make sure to enjoy all that the Grand Strand has to offer!
As you plan the week, remember Plantation Resort sits south of Myrtle Beach and is a short ride to the Spring Rally action in Murrells Inlet. For the bikers looking to bypass the stop-and-go traffic in Myrtle Beach on their way to the north-end of the Grand Strand, Plantation Resort's location makes it easy to access Highway 31 -- the highway that takes you directly to North Myrtle Beach, where most of the Atlantic Beach Bike Week events will take place.
Plantation Resort welcomes all bikers. We can't wait to see you roll in. The weather is perfect and our beaches are beautiful.
Come join us!
