Myrtle Beach boasts a wide range of activities for you to experience aside from golf! Our number one attraction, the beach itself, offers many options for you including kayaking, parasailing, surfing, fishing and sun-bathing. On both the North and South ends of the strand (Myrtle Beach is often referred to as “The Grand Strand,” due to the width of the beach!) you can find businesses that rent boats or jet skis, and also offer sightseeing tours through our famous marsh lands.

Don’t forget the shopping! In North Myrtle Beach, “Barefoot Landing” houses a collection of more than 100 specialty and retail shops suitable for the entire family. In Central Myrtle Beach, “Broadway at the Beach” offers more than 350 acres of shops, restaurants, nightlife, and attractions. If you are visiting the South end of the strand, make sure to stop by “The Hammock Shops” in Pawleys Island where you can find unique shops with easy access to a wide variety of Southern style restaurants, gift shops and more.



Myrtle Beach offers excellent deep sea fishing out of Murrells Inlet and Little River. Myrtle Beach also harbors some of the best restaurants in the state. Greg Norman’s Australian Grille at Barefoot Landing offers an innovative cuisine and a spectacular decor that makes you feel like you’re in Sydney’s finest harborside restaurant. Dinner includes fresh wood-grilled seafood, steaks, chicken, rack of lamb and much more combined with world class flavor, ambiance and presentation that will exceed all that you would expect in a great dining experience.

Broadway at the Beach has many onsite restaurants to choose from as well. Options range from Key West Grill, Uno’s Chicago Style Pizza and the Myrtle Beach Hard Rock Café. If its seafood you’re looking for, making the trip down to Murrells Inlet, the seafood capital of South Carolina, just might be worth it. For the freshest seafood right off of the boat prepared to perfection grilled, blackened, sautéed, or southern fried, visit Drunken Jack’s on the waterfront.

After dinner, indulge in one of our many live entertainment venues such as the Alabama Theatre, The Palace Theatre, Carolina Opry or visit any of our numbers bars in clubs in the area. With so many options available to you, Myrtle Beach delights all types of visitors.
