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!
