Beach Activities

Myrtle Beach BoardwalkMyrtle 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. You can go shopping down the middle section, catch a bite to eat and take in the local flair. Down the Southern Promenade, an oceanfront park affords travelers the chance to sit, have lunch and enjoy the view.


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. This is the perfect activity for a rainy afternoon, night time adventure, or if you just want a break from the sun! 

Carolina Opry or Pirates Voyage: Fun, Feast and AdventureCarolina 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.
