5 Free Activities in Myrtle Beach

 

Every year hundreds of families flock to Myrtle Beach to enjoy some sun, sand and fun. Unfortunately, it can quickly become an expensive endeavor which is why we’ve compiled a few of our favorite free activities in Myrtle Beach.

Beaches

The beaches are one of the main reasons travelers flock to Myrtle Beach, so it’s a good thing it’s free! And though it may be one of the most obvious free activities, one not-so-obvious aspect is visiting all of the beaches in the area, not just Myrtle Beach. Surrounding places like Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach, Sunset Beach or Murrells Inlet. Each beach provides a different atmosphere and is the perfect free activity.

 

Murrells Inlet Marshwalk

The Murrells Inlet Marshwalk offers an amazing view of the marsh and is the perfect place to set off on a kayaking or paddle board adventure. Not only is strolling along the Marshwalk free, there are also many free events hosted there throughout the year so be sure to check their calendar of events frequently.

 

The Pier at Garden City

The Pier at Garden City is the perfect place to enjoy the warm ocean breeze and watch the waves roll in. For a small cost, you can also enjoy a meal at the pier’s cafe or play some games at the nearby arcade, making for a perfect afternoon outing.

 

Broadway at the Beach

Filled with shops, dining, entertainment and attractions, Broadway at the Beach is free to stroll and see the sights. During most weeks, you can catch live music at the area restaurants and during summer months be sure to check out their Summer Nights event series. You can learn more about their events here.

 

Downtown Myrtle Beach

Downtown Myrtle Beach is just steps from the beach and full of shops and entertainment. Your family will thoroughly enjoy walking through the local dive stores and interacting with families from all over the country. In the summer months, look out for free festivals and concerts.

Easy Recipes for Your Surfside Beach Vacation

One of the many perks of renting a beach vacation home is the full kitchen that comes along with it. Going out every night during vacation can become very costly, very quickly. Having a full kitchen helps cut down on restaurant costs and offers a way for the whole family to dine comfortable together. Here are three easy recipes for your Surfside Beach vacation.

Spaghetti & Meatballs

If you can boil water you’re already halfway done cooking this dinner! This dish is already a staple in nearly every home in America so why not bring it with you to the beach? All of the ingredients can be found at a local grocery store. The main focus is on the gravy and meatballs.

Here’s a mouthwatering Italian Meatballs recipe that’s perfect for topping any pasta of your choosing.

Tacos

Tacos are quick, easy and delicious! You can also offer different meat fillers like beef, turkey or chicken so that everyone gets to choose exactly what they like. Not to mention, the kids will love building their own tacos.

Here’s a taco recipe that you can whip up in just 15 minutes.

Grill out

Many of our vacation rentals come equipped with an outdoor grill which means you can enjoy your favorite ribs, hotdogs and burgers even while you’re on vacation. With so many delicious recipes for grilling out, you’re likely to find yourself grilling out multiple nights during your vacation.

Here are some quick and easy recipes that you can grill up for the family.

10 Popular Activities in Myrtle Beach, SC

Myrtle Beach has become one of the top destinations in the U.S. for family vacations and enjoying a little fun in the sun. When planning your next vacation, keep in mind these top 10 popular activities to do in Myrtle Beach, SC.

1. Stroll around Broadway at the Beach.
Broadway at the Beach offers some great shopping, dining, entertainment and attractions making it the perfect spot for everyone in the family to enjoy.

2. Dine at a waterfront restaurant.
While in Myrtle Beach, dining at a few waterfront restaurants is a must. To get the best view and seating, make reservations in advance for sunset. We recommend checking out The Gulfstream Cafe, Sea Captain’s House and Filet’s on the Water.

3. Late night mini golf.
During peak months, many of Myrtle Beach’s attractions stay open late which means you’ll still find families playing mini golf even at 10pm.

4. Play some arcade games.
A little fun, friendly competition is a great way to end the day and arcades offer a little something for everyone. We recommend stopping by the Garden City Pavilion and the Fun Plaza Arcade.

5. Walk along Ocean Boulevard and the Boardwalk.
There’s nothing like joining the crowds of people walking along Ocean Boulevard or the Boardwalk. Ice cream, candy, attractions and unique gift shops await!

6. Take a ride on the Myrtle Beach Skywheel.
Seeing the ocean from high atop the Myrtle Beach Skywheel is a sight you won’t easily forget. It’s a must-do activity on any Myrtle Beach trip.

7. Spend a day at a water park.
Water parks are a great break from the beach while still offering a respite from the heat. There are quite a few water parks spread throughout Myrtle Beach so it’s not hard to find one that’s perfect for your family!

8. Go ziplining.
Ziplining may seem like something you can only do in far off, exotic places, but Myrtle Beach actually has a few different zipline companies that let you see the area from a different perspective. For example, Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure offers zipline adventures through the treetops of North Myrtle Beach while Soar + Explore Zip Line & Rope Course lets your drift high above Broadway at the Beach and Myrtle Beach Zipline Adventures lets you fly through the sky just feet from the beach.

9. See a variety show.
Myrtle Beach is scattered with some great theatres that offer family friendly variety shows. We recommend checking out Alabama Theatre and Legends in Concert.

10. Take a sunset beach walk.
While spending the day at the beach is one of the most popular activities to do when visiting Myrtle Beach, don’t just pack up when you the sun starts to go down. Stay a little longer, walk the beach and take in the amazing sky as the sunsets. It will be a memory that will last a lifetime!

What to Think About When Planning a Spring Break Beach Vacation

Spring is just a few weeks away and soon tourists will flock to the beach to soak up the sun and relax by the ocean. So, if you’re ready to escape winter and wanting to spend your spring break in Myrtle Beach, it’s time to start planning! Here’s what to think about when planning a Spring Break beach vacation.

Who’s going?

You’ll want a set number of who will be joining you on the trip because this is essential to deciding where to stay. If you’re joined by just a few friends, a hotel room might suffice. However, if you’re going with a larger group a beach rental is the best option. Additionally, with a large group you’ll want to check to see if everyone is comfortable sharing a room or if some in your group would prefer their own room.

Pro tip: use our advanced search option to view rentals around Myrtle Beach, SC with the exact number of bedrooms you need.

Are you bringing your pets?

If you have pets, you may be considering bringing them with you. This could be fun, but it could also end up making you have to alter your plans. For example, your dog won’t be able to stay alone for long which means you’ll either have to enjoy only the activities that your dog can enjoy too or you’ll have to plan your day around going back to your rental to walk and play with your dog.

Pro tip: if you decide to take your dog with you, use our search by amenities option to view pet-friendly rentals near Myrtle Beach.

Will you be driving or flying?

If you’re flying, you may prefer to save on the cost of a rental car by staying in a central location that will allow you to walk to nearby activities, restaurants and shops. If you’re driving, this can offer you more options as far as location and ultimately, by not being in the town’s central hotspot, you can save a small amount of money on your rental or hotel.

Do you want to save money by staying somewhere off the beach or are you comfortable with splurging in order to be oceanfront?

You can truly save a good amount of money by staying in a rental that’s just off of the beach, so if you’re trying to plan a Myrtle Beach spring break vacation on a budget this is your best option. If you’re not concerned with your budget and are more concerned with spending spring break with the ocean just outside your backdoor, spend a little extra for an oceanfront rental.

Pro tip: you can use our advanced search option to find rentals that are located oceanfront as well as those that are a few rows away, but still just a walk to the beach.

These are just a few of the of the top things to consider when planning a spring break vacation, but the number one priority is simply planning early! Waiting until the last minute will leave you stressed and paying far more for far less.
If you’re struggling to decide which beach rental home is right for you or if you’re trying to decide if a beach rental is even best for you, give us a call at:843.839.0099

Beach Activities for Cold Weather

3-things-to-do-at-the-beach-when-its-cold

Beach time is always a great time, even when it’s chilly, and there are plenty of beach activities for cold weather. If the temperatures have dropped, but you’re still wanting to book that oceanfront rental for a family beach trip, don’t worry. Even with colder temps, here are three activity ideas your whole family will enjoy:

Inside Game Tournament

Before leaving for your trip to the beach, pack all of your favorite board games and card games.  Then, head to your local discount store and buy some bags of candy and anything else that can be handed out as a prize.

Once you’ve reached your destination, use any downtime to play some games tournament style. If you’ve got a large family, divide into teams. Tally the winners of each game and at the end of the trip crown the winner with the prizes you bought!

Hot Chocolate and Cookie Night

Staying in a beach rental gives you the luxury of a full kitchen. Use it to your advantage! Make some hot chocolate filled with marshmallows and whip cream then throw some cookies in the oven that you can decorate with icing, sprinkles and anything else your hearts desire. Once you’ve got your hot chocolate and warm cookies in hand, head out to the porch with some blankets and do some star-gazing.

Hot Soup Picnic

Once again, take advantage of that full kitchen. Make some of your kids favorite hot soup, then head out to the beach for a picnic. Once you’re done with the soup, add a football or soccer ball to the mix for a fun family sports tournament. The soup and the running around is sure to heat you up in no time!

No matter what time of year it is, the beach is always a great place to create lasting family memories. Check out some of our awesome family-friendly beach rentals and make your dream beach vacation come true!
