Myrtle Beach Spring Break with friends on the beach
Mar02

March has arrived and warmer weather is finally on its way! With spring just around the corner so is Spring Break. Did you know that the months of Mach and April in Myrtle Beach have temperatures around 80 degrees and an average of only 5 rainy days both months? We might be a little biased, but we believe a Myrtle Beach Spring Break getaway is the best there is! From water sports to late-night dancing, here is our list of our favorite spring break spots.

Activities

Kayaking

While it might still be a little cool for a dip in the ocean, kayaking the intercoastal waterway is a great way to be on the water without getting too wet! See a side of the Grand Strand that most tourists miss completely. Choose a swamp tour or salt march tour and enjoy a few hours of relaxation and nature. There are many kayaking companies to choose from in the area but we recommend Black River Outdoors. Visit their website for rates and more information.

Sky Wheel

This Myrtle Beach icon is definitely one you need to check out! The climate-controlled gondolas of the Sky Wheel tower 200 feet over the Atlantic Ocean and give you a view of miles of the Myrtle Beach coast, and you can enjoy the beautiful boardwalk and ocean views with your family no matter the season or weather. They’re open Sunday-Friday from 11 am-10 pm and Saturday from 11 am-11 pm. Give them a call at 314-333-5624.

Golf

The Myrtle Beach area is known for its celebrity designed golf courses and with over 90 courses to choose from, you really can’t go wrong! Golf is a great day time activity, especially in the beautiful spring weather. Head south to enjoy a day at Caledonia, Heritage, or True Blue or head north and experience one of Barefoot Landing’s Fantastic Four signature courses. For more Myrtle Beach golf information be sure to read our previous post.

Paddle Boarding

To start the day off, why not get in the water? After all, is it really spring without some time in the sun and the sea? While the months of March and April can still be a little cool in the mornings, and the ocean is not quite swimming temps, we recommend going on a paddleboard tour with Carolina Waterman. This guided paddleboarding adventure takes you on a 2-hour instructional tour of the Waccamaw River. See nature up close and enjoy the relaxing water views! Reservations are required so be sure to call: 843-222-3132. You can also check out one of the many boat tours offered in Myrtle Beach!
