22 Resolutions to Do in Myrtle Beach That Will Boost Your Year

It’s resolutions season. Before you dread the run-of-the-mill choices we usually roll out, consider something different. How about promises to yourself that’ll actually make you want to see them through?


We have a few ideas, some guidelines, and 22 specific resolutions for the New Year you can check off in Myrtle Beach.


Why not be resolute about change in a place you love to be? There are lots of opportunities right here on the Grand Strand to make this the best year ever. It might need a couple or three trips here.

How to Approach Your Resolutions This Year

Let 2022 be the year of adventure. How?

1. Plan a Trip

Rather than have a packed January gym to look forward to, how about a weekend in Myrtle Beach? Put an off-season trip on your calendar and see how it affects your outlook.

2. Travel More

Once that one’s happened, why not plan another? Getaways to the Grand Strand in different seasons can do wonders for the soul.

3. Be More Adventurous

Do you always stay in a chain hotel? Treat yourself to a resort. Do you frequent a favorite beachfront bar? Try a new one! Adventure comes in small and big doses. Approach the new year looking for opportunities to be adventurous.

22 New Year’s Resolutions You Must Be in Myrtle Beach For

1. Treat Yourself to the Grand Strand’s Best Burger

The top burger in town just might be at River City Cafe. The traditional burgers, including the House Cheeseburger, are wonderful. Take a chance and try a specialty burger. Those include the Big Island, Homemade Ranchero BLT, Fork & Knife, and more.

2. Experience Music on Main

June through October, hit downtown North Myrtle Beach to hear some of the area’s finest musicians put on a show. Bring a lawn chair to kick back and relax, or your dancing shoes to boogie the night away. Admission is free.

3. Line Up for a Grand Strand Parade

There are many, but none as unique as the Intracoastal Christmas Regatta. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this night parade begins at Little River Inlet. Find a spot between there and Dock Holidays Marina to see Christmas lights on a parade of boats.

4. Get a Custom T-shirt at a Beach Store

Get a freshly-pressed tee to commemorate your Myrtle Beach trip, customized. A visit to Pacific Beachware makes its way into many trips, usually to get something you forgot! Sure, there are plenty of bodyboards and swimwear, but the custom T-shirt is tops.

5. Mix It up With Zombies at Hollywood Wax Museum

Come for the celebrity wax figures, stay for the experience with the dead. Outbreak: Dread the Dead takes you on a tour of a zombie-filled lab! The staff is friendly and professional to ensure an enjoyable time.

6. Dine at the Famous Sea Captain’s House

Serving up fan favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll be sure to get your seafood fix! It’s so good that it’ll become a staple of your Grand Strand travel plans. It’s famous for a reason!

7. Shop ‘Til You Drop at Tanger Outlet

With two Myrtle Beach locations, there’s one near you. Find your favorite brand-name and designer outlet stores. It’s all your shopping needs in one place. Stop in at Starbucks onsite while you shop Fragrance Outlet, Kate Spade New York, and more.

8. Spend a Day at Market Common

You could do this a thousand different ways without a repeat! The storefront shops are intermingled with dining, movies, bowling, and more. Have a funkadelic Apple Pie donut at Peace, Love, and Little Donuts. Then, find women’s fashions at Centro Shoes, and take the kids on a fun, educational journey at EdVenture.

9. See a Show at The Asher Theatre and Conference Center

This performing arts theater is a hidden gem on the Grand Strand. It’s likely to be one of the best shows you’ve seen in a while. Productions are entertaining and audience-oriented. The new Motown 59 features incredible music by amazing performers.

10. See Chanticleers Football

Coastal Carolina has become a national power on the college football scene. This respected program plays in Brooks Stadium in the Division I Sun Belt Conference. The experience of a Chanticleers home game is beyond description or facts, though. You have to be there!

11. Grab Dessert at the Iconic Kirk's 1890 Ice Cream Parlor

Many have considered Kirk’s the only place in Myrtle Beach to get ice cream for decades. This amazing place doesn’t disappoint and might serve the best ice cream you’ve ever had. When you’re in town, it’s a must-stop, and one trip won’t do.

12. Check Out the Run to the Sun Car Show

Classic cars and trucks. Hot rods. All, by the beach. This show draws fans from all over the globe for an array of automotive excellence. See antique models and modified builds that’ll mesmerize the motorhead in you. And proceeds benefit national and local charities. In 2022, it’ll be March 18-20.

13. Tackle the Backstage Mirror Maze

This old-time theater is a family-friendly spot to experience mirror and laser mazes. You’ll have so much fun, and one admission lets you in as many times as you’d like on your trip. It’s a mind-bending trip with cool sound and light effects for the whole family.

14. Find a Bargain at Everything Under The Sun Flea Market

They’ll love more than 100 hands-on science exhibits, a ropes course, and laser tag! There’s enough to keep grown-ups busy, too, with arcade games. Legend has it this is a once-secret lab in the Bermuda Triangle that wound up in Myrtle Beach — upside down!

16. Play All Day at 810 Billiards & Bowling

Knocking down pins is only part of the fun at 810, which is located in Market Common. It’s a great spot for arcade games, table games, foosball, darts, and so much more. Stop by for drinks, fun, and pretty amazing food, too.

17. Visit the PGA Tour Store

It’s not just any golf store — it’s a place you get expert help selecting your new set of clubs (and to help your game, too.) If your clubs have been in hibernation, bring them in for a worthy makeover! You can also book a lesson or sign up for a clinic.

18. Indulge in a Sirloin at Chuck’s Steak House
