Any time you can reduce fussy time with little ones on vacation is golden. The best way to do this is: Make time for activities the kids will enjoy. Myrtle Beach is chock full of such opportunities.
Pushing around a stroller or walking with toddlers? Here are some places to check out with your kids.
For things exciting or mellow, and spots to eat where kids are welcome, this is the list. The nice thing about these places is that they’re enjoyable for older kids and parents, too. The Grand Strand is great for family fun.
It’s not easy, but you can definitely find your groove traveling with little ones. It takes a little planning.
Limit connecting flights to minimize crying babies. Landing is tough on young ears, and that pressure is what causes the crying.
It seems counterintuitive, but the minimalist baby travels best. What fits into a diaper bag is enough, plus mobility needs. Request a pack-and-play when you reserve your room.
This makes life much easier than getting around with a stroller! Whether it’s a backpack style or front-carrier, you’ll get to bond with your baby, too.
When you’re eating with little ones, it helps to know the spots that appreciate your lifestyle. Here are a few with reputations for that.
Pro tip: Planning a meal out before nap time is a recipe for disaster. A rested baby is a happy baby.
There are more than 100 hands-on science exhibits for young learners here, plus more fun. It’s fun stuff for all ages, and you can find discounts by visiting them online. Older kids will love discovery zones for physical challenges, space discovery and more.
Pro tip: WonderWorks is best for kids 3 and older.
Huntington State Park in Murrells Inlet and Myrtle Beach State Park are perfect for this. You’ll have immaculate beaches and wonderful playgrounds to play on. Hit the pier at Myrtle Beach State Park, and visit Atalaya at Huntington Beach State Park.
Pro tip: Check out special programs, including some for toddlers, at the S.C. parks website.
Bring a bucket and toys to have some fun in the sun and sand. Don’t forget the sunscreen (apply before you put on the swimsuit!), an umbrella, and a hat for the little ones. Avoid midday for the most comfortable experience.
Pro tip: How much sunscreen is enough? Lather it on before you get out there with your children. If you have to wait a moment or two for it to dry, you’ve added enough!
This is a place for a child’s sense of wonder, with ocean life and hands-on exhibits. Where else can you see a penguin parade? Be ready: The route out goes through the gift shop, giving you the chance to take something fun home, too.
Pro tip: Check the aquarium’s website for dates and times for the Pirate and Mermaid Breakfast.
