Things to do with the kids in Myrtle
A beach holiday is a great time in everyone's lives - this is where memories are made, photos taken and quaint family customs dreamt up. Everybody's relaxed and the simple things are the best. Myrtle Beach is lovely any time of year and there's plenty to do here even if the weather does turn in. We'll help you find excellent accommodation close to the beach and the off peak prices are very, very good.
The Grand Strand has fabulous beaches and there's a ton of attractions, so strap in, here's what to do and where to go. The Family Kingdom Amusement Park & Oceanfront Waterpark is at 300 4th Ave South and has all the usual excitements - from bumper cars and bumper boats or for the older kids, a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Little ones will love the old fashioned carousel or if you're brave enough take them up on the ferris wheel. Go-karts are also available and at the water park, you will find tons of slides and pools.
Ripley's Aquarium is an awesome place to visit if you love seeing under water sea creatures. The kids will get to see amazing little creatures like sea turtles and tropical fish. There are sharks so you can start humming the Jaws theme (you know you want to) and a great stingray exhibit. You can meet the stingrays and penguins in person at the feeding station and ask the keeper all about their lives and habits.
The Wild Water & Wheels fun park is at 910 Hwy 17 South and this is where the kids can spend the entire day and still not be bored. You'll find speed slides, tubes slides and all sorts of water activities. Adults can relax in a whirlpool while the children enjoy playing games in the activity pool.

How the locals love Myrtle
Myrtle Beach is an all year round destination and the beach with its white sands, the boardwalk promenade area and the entertainment strip makes it great place day or night. But what do the locals do for their pleasure? It's a great place to spend a few days, and you'll find a great place to stay in any of the scenic hotspots.
The Family Kingdom Amusement park is a place most of the townsfolk have grown up with and so their memories may well be tinged with the romance of a misspent youth, but that said, the Kingdom does boast rides including the Swamp Fox wooden roller coaster and a 100-foot Ferris wheel as well as a couple of absolute adrenalin pumpers on the Grand Strand. It must be pretty good - it has been voted Number 5 amusement park in the country.
Speedway racing is a big deal down this way and the Speedway Nascar Racing Experience draws them in from all over the state. Book yourself in for some classroom training and race day driver experiences while you're here.
The wildlife gets a look in too. The Alligator Adventure is on Barefoot Landing, U.S. 17, North Myrtle Beach and this is where the kids can go crazy, staring in open mouth amazement at all the reptiles on offer here. There are hundreds of American alligators of all sizes. Open 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily.
One of the most popular things to do in the downtown area is walking the Boardwalk. It's a wonderful way to walk off dinner on a Fall evening and there's free entertainment June through August, but a fun place to visit any time of year.

First and foremost is the beach - some 60 miles of sand and salt-sea air. Tremendous stuff and just perfect for lounging in the sun with good book. But when you're done beaching, take time out with these local attractions.
Ripley's Aquarium is excellent for the kids with a series of exploration areas including Rio Amazon, Rainbow Rock, Systems Controls, Dangerous Reef, Living Gallery, Ray Bay, and Friendship Flats, all based on the environments they're named after. You can see killer sharks up close or just gaze in amazement at the multi-colored tropical fish.
Take a trip out o the ocean blue and explore the low country areas around Myrtle Beach, Georgetown and Winyah Bay in a big catamaran. This is one of the longest settled areas in America and the history is fascinating. Nature is also here in abundance; water and salt marsh will surround you, as dolphins or a sea turtle swim alongside, and overhead gulls, terns, herons and egrets soar across the peaceful skies. The people to look out for are Rover Tours.

Once the sun has set the most fun you can have in Myrtle is at the Carolina Opry. The grand building welcomes you in with an exceptional evening of musical entertainment. No run of the mill show, this is the real deal with talented musicians and performers. Generally there's a long running show on centered around a theme - it's excellent value for money and outstandingly good entertainment.
Have you got the kids with you? Most of your days will be well spent at the beach - but if the sun proves too much or, heaven forbid, there's a rainstorm, turn to Captain Hook's Adventure Golf at 2205 North King's Hwy. The greens are new and the mini putt course well maintained. And any Peter Pan fans will love the layout.
