5 Fun Ways to Spend a Cold Day in Myrtle Beach

With its subtropical climate and famously abundant sunshine, facing cold days during a vacation in Myrtle Beach is rarely a concern that travelers have to deal with. But the chilly days do come on occasion — which can throw a wrinkle into travelers’ plans to lay on the beach or catch some rays by the pool.


But fortunately for vacationers lucky enough to have chosen the Grand Strand as their vacation destination, the cooler days don’t have to spoil their fun. Thanks to the long list of family-friendly attractions found in the Myrtle Beach area, there are plenty of great options to choose from when a nip in the air outside leaves your party wanting to find some fun indoors.


Reluctant to brave the wintry air on a cool day during your Myrtle Beach stay? Consider these five fun ways you and your vacation crew can find some adventure on the Grand Strand without having to stay bundled up for the cold day’s duration:


The Myrtle Beach area is well-known for its entertainment venues, so it should come as no surprise that concerts and other performances are typically easy to track down here, even during the slower-season winter months. A few top options to look into for live entertainment on the Grand Strand include musical productions and concerts at the Alabama Theatre, concerts by regional and national touring acts at the House of Blues, music-driven productions and concerts at the Carolina Opry Theater, and live tribute shows to music’s legends at Legends in Concert.

Wine Tastings

For those who enjoy sampling the local vino offerings when they travel, the Grand Strand can accommodate with great options for tasting locally produced wines. A few great spots to grab a glass or two in the Myrtle Beach area are Duplin Winery in North Myrtle Beach, Coastal Vino in Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment district The Market Common and La Belle Amie Vineyard in Little River.

Escape Rooms

Few things bring the vacation crew together quite like overcoming a shared challenge, and the Myrtle Beach area’s multiple escape rooms provide a fun way to put your minds together to work through a puzzle or mystery. A few leading options to check out on the Grand Strand include Backstage Escape Games at Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach, Escapology on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach Room Escape on 9th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach.

Art Exhibits

Fans of high culture have plenty of options to find it in Myrtle Beach, with the area’s art exhibits being a popular choice. One top place on the Grand Strand to explore the local arts scene is Myrtle Beach’s Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum, which is free to visit every day. (And while it may not be considered quite as cultured as a museum, the Hollywood Wax Museum at Broadway at the Beach offers a fun way to see movie and sports stars’ likenesses up close — and even to snap some selfies with them.)

Animal Adventures

For lovers of animals, another Broadway at the Beach attraction, Ripley’s Aquarium, puts the wildlife of the deep sea (any beyond) on display indoors — making it a perfect destination on a cold day. Just a handful of the exciting exhibits here include Rio Amazon, Planet Jellies, Ray Bay, Sloth Valley and the Penguin Playhouse.
