HGVC Opening Ocean 22 - A New Luxury Resort in Myrtle Beach

Posted by Diana Furey on May 28, 2015 8:37:16 AM

Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC) is known for their luxurious resorts and top-notch treatment of their guests. Even though there are over 3,600 properties in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio, every once in a while a new resort comes along that needs to steal the spotlight for a at least a moment. This July, Hilton Vacation Club will be opening its newest addition, the profoundly luxurious oceanfront resort Ocean 22.

 Located on the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, this resort offers 220 top-of-the-line opulent rooms that are fit for royalty. This all-suite resort is truly one of a kind, and the location couldn't be more desirable. It is located within minutes of famous local attractions such as Broadway at the Beach, multiple grand golf courses, and many country music spots, such as The Bowery and The Carolina Opry. It is just two blocks from the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and eight blocks from the ever-popular Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.

This week, TripAdvisor released their yearly Travelers’ Choice Awards featuring the Top 10  Islands in the World of 2015. Not surprisingly, Hawaii’s gorgeous Maui came in 2nd place, right behind the exquisite Turks and Caicos. Because Maui is so luxurious and popular, you may think that staying there at a resort is an extremely pricey and exclusive experience. While a stay at a Maui resort is definitely a luxury vacation, it is by no means beyond reach. By belonging to any Vacation Club, the opportunity to stay in paradise without breaking the bank is a reality.

Posted by Diana Furey on Apr 10, 2015 5:00:00 PM

***UPDATED May 18, 2015***

A long time ago (actually, it started in 1997), in a galaxy, far, far away (well, at Hollywood Studios in Florida) thousands of Star Wars fanatics from across the world came to Disney World  for the most exciting event of the year: Star Wars Weekends! (Cue the dramatic Star Wars theme music here). This year, many come dressed as their favorite characters, get pumped up to meet their personal heroes (or villains) at celebrity meet and greets, and get to hang out with other hard-core fans from all over the world. The weekend also features parades, trivia contests, and even dance parties!

Greatest Moments in Disney's Golf History

Posted by Diana Furey on Mar 23, 2015 8:21:00 AM

Spring is here yet again. This means slightly warmer temps, but definitely nothing like the sweltering summer weather up ahead. It is certainly the perfect time to get out there and enjoy one of the great American pastimes: golf. Even though it is technically a game, a lot of people play for relaxation and the social side of it. Golfing is definitely something a lot of DVC members partake in when they aren’t visiting the parks or aren’t lounging around at their resorts. All four Disney courses, the Magnolia, the Palm, Lake Buena Vista, and Osprey Trail, definitely offer the Disney experience you are looking for, but with a little friendly competition mixed in.

Why DVC Member Benefits Make a Bigger Difference Than You Think

Posted by Diana Furey on Feb 16, 2015 8:01:55 AM

There is no doubt that Disney Vacation Club Members eat, sleep and breathe Disney. Even though they are located all around the world, they tend to act more like one giant, happy family. They even have their own language! What brings such a diverse group of people together like this? We like to think it’s a combination of things that, when taken as a whole, create a unique Disney experience which just can't be captured by a single family vacation. When you take into account everything that Disney Vacation Club has to offer, you just might be pleasantly surprised by the perks no one really talks about.
