Myrtle Beach Vacation Bucket List

With another busy vacation season coming to an end, traffic has slowed down in Myrtle Beach and temperatures have started to cool off for the year. It’s a great time to book a low-key, relaxing trip to the beach – and it’s never too early to start planning for your getaway next summer!

If you have an early fall Myrtle Beach trip in the books, or if you’re just planning ahead for next summer, here is a list of activities and attractions that you can’t miss:

– Book a Jet Ski Adventure Tour
If you want to explore private islands, check out gorgeous beaches, or perhaps get up close & personal with dolphins, make sure to book a jet ski tour! Myrtle Beach Jet Ski Rentals has a prime location with close proximity to the ocean, which will allow you to maximize your time spent out in the ocean and offers high chances of dolphin sightings. If you’re looking for a more low-key experience, pontoon boat rentals also offer a great opportunity to get out on the water and relax!

– Visit Myrtle Beach State Park & Huntington Beach State Park
If you want to experience the stunning, preserved beauty of the South Carolina coast, Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park both offer gorgeous views, access to nature, trail opportunities, and plenty of nature-related activities and exhibits. If you’re into camping, both locations offer great camping sites – but daily admission is a great value as well!

– Play Some Mini Golf
Did you know that Myrtle Beach is known as the Mini Golf Capital of the World? There are over 50 mini golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area alone, and the city boasts countless creative, adventure-themed courses. Mount Atlanticus in Myrtle Beach, Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf, and Spyglass Adventure Golf are all classics in the Myrtle Beach area. If you’re looking for something more challenging, Hawaiian Rumble in North Myrtle Beach and Tribal Island in Little River offer a challenge for more experienced mini-golfers.

– Visit Brookgreen Gardens
Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet is a nearly 10,000-acre wildlife reserve and sculpture garden – they offer the largest outdoor collection of American figurative sculpture in the world! The gardens have countless attractions for the whole family, including a zoo and trail, Butterfly House, and tons of activities and events held throughout the year. If you’re ever visiting the beach during November and December, the annual Nights of a Thousand Candles is a truly romantic, unforgettable event!

– Cool Down with Ice Cream
Is it really a visit to the beach without enjoying this iconic sweet treat? Myrtle Beach has some great spots to enjoy ice cream. Kirk’s in Myrtle Beach is a longtime local favorite, whole locations like Crazy Mason in the mall and Melt in North Myrtle Beach offer some innovative spins on a classic warm-weather treat.

– Visit the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk – and Ride the SkyWheel
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk itself offers tons of dining, shopping, and entertainment options – make sure to make a stop at the Gay Dolphin Gift Cove and grab a bite at one of the countless eateries lining the boardwalk. However, make sure to take a ride on the SkyWheel before leaving the beach! This attraction opened in 2011 and has since become an iconic part of the Myrtle Beach skyline. It is the sixth-tallest Ferris wheel in the United States, and offers gorgeous views of the coast and downtown Myrtle Beach.

– Go to a Myrtle Beach Pelicans Game
If you haven’t made it to a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game yet, you’re in luck – the city is in the process of finalizing a one-year extension of the Pelicans lease agreement, and the 2024 schedule was recently announced. If you’ve never attended a game, you’re in for a treat – the stadium offers a playground, Fun Zone, fireworks, and countless other great activities to be enjoyed throughout the year. There’s fun for the whole family!

– Go to the Beach!
If you’re visiting Myrtle Beach, your trip isn’t complete without a day spent at the beach! You can pack a lunch and enjoy the day in the sand and surf. Whether you’re building sandcastles, looking for seashells or shark teeth, or enjoying a beach read in the sun, spending time on the beach is always guaranteed to be a great time.

Rainy Day Activities In Myrtle Beach

Although hot, sunny weather is typical of Myrtle Beach in the warmer months, unpredictable weather and a rainy forecast can sometimes put a damper on your vacation plans – especially in the midst of hurricane season. Even on a rainy day, the Grand Strand offers plenty of great activities that you & your family can enjoy while waiting out the weather! Here are a few options:

– Broadway at the Beach
While most of Broadway at the Beach is technically an outdoor attraction, the complex offers plenty of venues with great indoor attractions. A visit to Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach will make you feel like you never left the ocean, and the iconic WonderWorks provides tons of educational fun for your whole family. In addition to these attractions, Broadway at the Beach offers tons of dining options, a movie theater, and even the Hollywood Wax Museum right across the street!

– Enjoy a Show
There are plenty of entertainment theaters across the Grand Strand with shows running daily! The Alabama Theater and Carolina Opry offer award-winning musical performances, while Pirates Voyage and Medieval Times offer fun, interactive dinner theater experiences that will be sure to entertain the whole family.

– Go Shopping
Tanger Outlets is located right off of Highway 17 in Myrtle Beach! Tanger is home to over 200 shops in a clean, well-maintained environment with plenty of great deals waiting to be found. Barefoot Landing, another beautiful shopping & entertainment venue, is located only 7 minutes north from Tanger Outlets. Barefoot Landing has plenty of retail shops, entertainment venues, and dining options – and, although mainly an outdoor venue, has plenty of great indoor activities and experiences for the whole family.

– EdVenture Children’s Museum
If you have little ones with you, the 3,000 square-foot EdVenture Children’s Museum offers countless activities and “imaginative experiences” for your kids. Admission for children & adults is only $9, and the museum is located in the beautiful Market Common – which has plenty of great retail & dining options in a walkable village setting.

– Play Some Games!
Whether you’re looking for a classic arcade, laser tag, or bowling, Myrtle Beach has tons of great venues to keep you & your family entertained. If you’re looking for a more classic arcade experience, the Fun Plaza Arcade on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is a great option. Fun Warehouse in Myrtle Beach is another fun way to spend an afternoon – with laser tag, go karts, an indoor skating rink, and arcade game all in one location, there’s no shortage of activities to keep every member of your family happy. If you’re looking for a venue where the adults can kick back and enjoy a few drinks while enjoying entertainment, 810 Billiards & Bowling and Dave & Buster’s are both great venues to enjoy games, food, and perhaps a few cocktails.

Beat the Heat – Book a Jet Ski or Pontoon Boat Rental in September

If you’ve been wanting to get out on the water over the summer but the high temperatures and crowds have deterred you, September is a great time to go! Temperatures are still warm, but the humidity and intense heat from peak summer months will lower. Here are some reasons to book your water adventure for September:

Better Weather: The weather in September is, arguably, much more pleasant than in peak summer. The temperatures are slightly cooler, the humidity is lower, and the water is still warm! You can stay out on the boat for longer with less worries of sunburn and heat exhaustion.

Less Traffic: Many people have left town due to kids heading back to school, so the water and beaches are much less crowded. You’ll be able to enjoy more space on the water and can spread out on the beach!

Enjoy a Sunset Cruise: If you’ve wanted to enjoy the beauty of the sun setting on the waterway, September is a great time to experience it firsthand – the sun starts setting earlier, so you can check out the views without being out on the water too late.

Lots of Specials!: Myrtle Beach Jet Ski Rentals is currently running Labor Day Specials through the end of September, so it’s a great time to save money and book a trip – Jet Ski rentals start as low as $149 and pontoon boat rentals start at $274!

The Benefits of Visiting Myrtle Beach in September
