Ready for a family vacation? Beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the perfect place for a fun-filled family getaway. From the beach to the boardwalk, Myrtle Beach is packed with family-friendly activities that you and the kiddos are sure to enjoy.
MYRTLE BEACH BOARDWALK
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is over a mile of fun and excitement for kids (and people) of all ages. From arcades to museums and more, there is something for everybody in the family. Grab some quarters and play Skee Ball at the Fun Plaza Family Fun Center, or experience shock and awe at Ripley’s Believe it or Not. If you have any little thrill seekers, there’s no better view of the Boardwalk than from the Sling Shot Thrill Ride! Learn more here.
Pro tip: The Boardwalk is a whole different, amazing experience at night. Split your time up so you can experience both, and save a few fun things to do in the evening!
FAMILY KINGDOM AMUSEMENT PARK & SPLASHES — OCEANFRONT WATERFRONT WATER PARK
Family Kingdom is home to 35 amusement park rides for kids (and adults) of all sizes. Buy an all-day pass if you want to spend the day there, or buy a few ride tickets if you’re only in for a few hours of thrills. The park is also home to some exhilarating Go Karts! When you’re ready to cool down, swap the clothes for the bathing suits and head over to Splashes. From the lazy river to the speed slides, you’re sure to have some fun in the sun. Check it out here.
Pro tip: Bring a dry change of clothes for the little ones to prevent a soggy car ride home.
VISIT THE BEACH
Of course, no trip to Myrtle Beach would be complete without some time in the sand! Grab an ice cream or a frozen lemonade and take in the warm water of the Atlantic. Can’t wait to get your feet wet? Visit one of the many rental shops and rent some boogie boards! Just be sure to grab your sunscreen. Learn more about Myrtle Beach’s beautiful shoreline here.
Pro tip: save money by packing your own towels and snacks.
Myrtle Beach’s ocean views are unparalleled, but do you wonder what goes on under all that water? Visit Ripley’s Aquarium to learn more about the local animals, Myrtle Beach’s animal conservation efforts and – if you’re really brave – even swim with some sharks! Check out the aquarium’s live show schedule ahead of time to plan your trip around some of their most popular live exhibits.
Pro tip: Save money and time by buying your aquarium tickets ahead of time here.
