Beach Activities

Myrtle Beach, SC is a favorite destination for tourists seeking warm sand, sunny shores and pleasant waves during the summer. The temperature remains warm without being muggy, and the city and surrounding areas are home to plenty of attractions for visitors to enjoy themselves during their summer vacations. Whether you just want to hang out and go shopping or whether you want to go to amusement parks, nature preserves, or music shows, Myrtle Beach attractions will leave you wanting more.

 

MYRTLE BEACH BOARDWALK

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the tourist heart of the city. Stretching down 1.2 miles of beautiful shoreline, it has been ranked by Travel and Leisure Magazine as the second best boardwalk in the country. It is home to weekly family-friendly attractions such as carnivals, music shows, live performances and more. Go shopping down the middle section, catch a bite to eat and take in the local flair. An oceanfront park affords travelers the chance to have lunch and enjoy the view.

 

CAROLINA OPRY OR PIRATES VOYAGE: FUN, FEAST AND ADVENTURE

Depending on the ages and inclinations of your family members, either of these dinner theater-style shows may be appropriate and fun for the whole family. The Carolina Opry is a world-famous musical variety show with comedy acts, musical performances and dance numbers in styles ranging from country, to rock n' roll, to bluegrass and more. The Pirates Voyage, located right next door, is more suited to a younger crowd, with a "watery wonderland where pirates will roam." The show features shenanigans aplenty, culminating in a pirate fight sure to amaze kids of all ages.

 

MYRTLE WAVES AND FAMILY KINGDOM

Both Myrtle Waves and Family Kingdom have received national accolades. Myrtle Waves is one of the largest water parks on the East Coast, with dozens of rides and attractions, cabana rentals, shopping and family-friendly dining. Family Kingdom was listed in the top five U.S. amusement parks by a 2007 TripAdvisor survey. Admission is free, although each ride requires a separate small payment. Entertainers such as magicians, clowns, balloon sculptors, jugglers and face painters roam the park.

 

WONDERWORKS

This indoor entertainment park is considered a major attraction in the area where vacationers can take in over 100 exhibits, including a virtual roller coaster and hurricane-force winds. Soar + Explore is a favorite among families who love the outdoors. Soar + Explore has prepared a number of adventures for visitors, including themed rope courses and zip lines set 50 feet above ground.
