Sun, sand, a cool drink, and the sparkling Atlantic – this idyllic scene is the first one that comes to mind when you decide to visit the Grand Strand. And, while relaxing on the beach with your favorite novel is a blissful way to spend the day, there is so much more to do!

At Broadway at the Beach, Pavilion Park has rides to please everyone – from exciting roller coasters to the nostalgic rides everyone loves. The ziplines and ropes courses are also ready to give your family a day to remember!

For more family fun, visit Family Kingdom and make unforgettable memories riding bumper cars and the many rockin’ roller coasters.

Visit The Funplex for a variety of thrill levels. On top of exciting rides, this tropical-themed amusement park features carnival-style and arcade games as well as a restaurant, bar, photo booth, and party rooms for private events.

The kids will be happy if you take them to Myrtle Waves – a water park with enough thrills and excitement to please everyone. Still not sure what to do? The options are endless for land lovers – Alligator Adventure is an exhilarating way to spend a day. And don’t forget all the fun mini-golf courses along the Strand.

With air-conditioned, comfortable gondolas, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel guarantees an amazing view of the Grand Strand. Standing 200 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, this is the largest wheel of any kind on this side of the Mississippi, and it’s even more breathtaking at night with its state-of-the-art lighting system that creates colorful, dynamic light shows.

Maybe a half or full-day deep-sea fishing trip is your idea of the perfect day? Or, enjoy one of the Grand Strand’s fishing piers and wet your line – and get plenty of advice from local anglers! Want to stay onshore, but still find adventure? Rent bicycles for a day and explore the area’s trails.

If an adventure in nature is more your speed, pick up a paddle and kayak or canoe your way to a memorable day of fun and discovery. Spartina cordgrass, hundreds of birds, sea turtles, and maybe even a dolphin or two await your salt marsh expedition. Huntington Beach State Park offers a two-hour kayak trip every Monday that will give you a fascinating look at the maritime forest and salt marsh bordering Huntington Beach State Park. There is even a moonlight tour during the week preceding the full moon.

Maybe you’re ready for a little more excitement? Try parasailing for a fascinating ride. Myrtle Beach also offers helicopter tours that give a breathtaking view of our beautiful coast.

There are so many ways to have an adventure along the Grand Strand.
