Continually ranked as one of America's best family beach destinations, Myrtle Beach offers visitors plenty to do. For families, there are activities such as mini-golf, an aquarium, and funky novelty shops and museums, while couples and young adults can indulge in the lively (if a bit cheesy) nightlife and plethora of inexpensive restaurants and bars. And of course, the 60 miles of sandy shoreline is a crowd-pleaser. We've come up with a guide to the must-do activities in Myrtle Beach, and where to stay when you're there. Get inspired and soak up these last few weeks of summer in this beachy hotspot!
Do: Float along a lazy river Vacations are a time to relax, especially when your getaway is in a sunny beach destination such as Myrtle Beach. This beach town is chock-a-block with sand-side resorts with large pool complexes; lather on some sunscreen, grab an inner-tube, and float down the winding lazy river at your hotel. If that doesn't make you feel like you're on vacation, we don't know what will!
Stay: Caribbean Resort and Villas This beachfront complex of two towers, one inn, and a cluster of condos caters to families, with its two pools, two lazy rivers, a kiddy pool, a kids' club, and a game room. While the Jamaica Inn features single rooms that are less up-to-date than those in the other buildings, rooms in the towers and condos all feature modern kitchens and free Wi-Fi. The property also has a popular seafood restaurant.
