Does the beach beckon?


South Carolina has a gorgeous coast; think lazy days on the sand, fishing, balmy nights in a beach front bar followed by a cool al fresco meal in a happening restaurant. Well, if you’re thinking all of that, you’re thinking Myrtle Beach!

The humid sub-tropical climate draws visitors in from all over the east coast and the influx has meant an upsurge in the quality of things to do – when you’re just a little too sunburned!

Now, we love the simple pleasures of just lazing on a beach where the biggest decision of the day is which flavor ice cream to indulge in, but if you’re of a more adventurous bent, then here’s a couple of things to consider.

Go horse-riding! Who doesn’t love horses? Get out and about with an early morning ride on Myrtle Beach. You can ride on the beach or do a ramble through wetlands and beachside lagoons, you can follow the coast line or head along the Waccamaw river bank.

How about some ziplining and rope walks? ideal if you have older teenagers who want some excitement. Broadway at the Beach is where you can soar on the 1,000 foot Zipline 50ft above water and explore the 40ft tall ropes challenge course.

If that doesn’t wear everybody out they need… mini golf! Real, good old-fashioned fun is waiting at the Mt Atlanticus mini putt course. Sweet playing and lots of fun.

Something a little more cultural for those balmy southern nights? Then explore the Carolina Opry. The regular shows sell out fast (because they’re so good!), so as you know you’re heading to Myrtle book yourself some tickets for this feast of artistic merit. Flawless staging, excellent performance and soaring voices.

The must do? A sophisticated, fun little museum called the Franklin G. Burroughs – Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum – and it’s right on the beach. This fun place bats way above average in the entertainment stakes and it’s close to the all the other attractions and, hopefully, your hotel. You’ll love it!
