Family Holidays in Myrtle Beach
Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is undoubtedly a fabulous place for the entire family. Whether jumping from a pirate boat, playing miniature golf, looking for seashells on the beach or riding the SkyWheel that looks out over Myrtle Beach, kids and adults alike are sure to have endless fun. Plus there’s shopping, dining and entertainment that will excite anyone.
In low season (November to February), hotels and resorts offer tempting deals. These affordable, off-season options make it an even better destination for families.
The 1.2-mile Boardwalk
The 1.2-mile Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is breathtaking and boasts activities and attractions for all ages. Located on the oceanfront, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is also home to variety of shops and restaurants. This is where you’ll find the SkyWheel, a huge Ferris wheel where you take off in a comfortable, climate-controlled cabin and catch an unforgettable view of the beach and the city beyond. The boardwalk has many shopping and entertainment options; it’s really the go-to place for family amusement!
Of course, no mention of Myrtle Beach would be complete without talking about the beaches. The beaches of Myrtle Beach are part of the “Grand Strand,“ a 100-kilometer stretch of beaches on the east coast. There are pristine and well-maintained beaches as far as the eye can see.
Your family might enjoy hunting for shells and playing in the waves at Myrtle Beach State Park. For a small park entrance fee, you can enjoy a wide beach, nature trails, surf fishing or a fishing pier, camping and more. Huntington Beach State Park also has a gorgeous beach, fishing and camping, and boasts fantastic bird watching, hiking trails, a nature center and the beautiful National Historic Landmark called Atalaya Castle, the Moorish style winter home of sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington and her husband, philanthropist and Spanish scholar, Archer Huntington.
