If you are excited to see what the waves have to offer on the East Coast, you’ll want to continue reading. If you are tired of my wave jokes, you too can continue reading since I’m all out of wave puns.


 Today, Southwest published flights to Myrtle Beach, S.C. starting on May 23, 2021, with nonstop service to Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Chicago (Midway), and Nashville. The next group of markets to land in Myrtle Beach includes Dallas (Love Field) and Pittsburgh on May 29, 2021. Then on June 6, 2021, service begins to Atlanta, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Miss, and St. Louis. We’re excited to connect so many existing cities to our newest beach destination.
