Things To Do In Myrtle Beach
We here at the Coral Beach, Sea Crest and Holiday Inn-“At the Pavilion” know firsthand that the fun that Myrtle Beach has to offer is positively endless. Rain or shine, summer or fall, there is plenty to keep you and your family happy and busy all vacation long!
Headed for a day on the beach? Take the kids on a banana boat ride or see Myrtle Beach from a different angle and go parasailing at Downwind Sails or Ocean Watersports. Both are conveniently located off of Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. You could also spend your afternoon or evening at one of the numerous parks or attractions along the Grand Strand. Or you could walk around Broadway at the Beach and enjoy dining, shopping and attractions for the whole family, including miniature golf, the IMAX theatre, Ripley’s Aquarium and the Pavilion Nostalgia Park.
For those who just want to kick back, relax and enjoy a good show, you certainly have your pick! Choose from The Carolina Opry, Alabama Theater, The Palace Theater, The Dixie Stampede or Medieval Times.
Even though we’re drawing closer to the end of summer, there are still countless things to do and visit along the Strand, including arts and crafts shows, the upcoming, Blue Grass Festival and the Beach Ball Classic.
