Have a favorite Myrtle Beach activity that draws a crowd? It’s often worth the wait. It’s a great idea to check it out when the tourists have cleared out.
Winter fun on the Grand Strand means cool stuff is easier to get to.
Here are five Myrtle Beach attractions you should see this winter. Local weather is mild, and there isn’t as much hustle and bustle. Come see why travelers love the Grand Strand year-round.
Reasons you should:
Venture to Conway for an experience that has entertained visitors for more than 50 years. The atmosphere, lights, and shows are amazing. Don’t miss Driving Miss Daisy and Grumpy Old Men: The Musical this January.
RECOMMENDED: Come again in the spring for other great shows, such as The Play That Goes Wrong and Beehive. Locals can audition, too.
It’s like having the beach to yourself — or sharing with a few folks. You won’t have to pack up a lot of gear, sand toys, and flotation devices. All you need is a sweater or hoodie, a cap, and comfortable shoes.
RECOMMENDED: Bring a ball or Frisbee and play. Volleyball and Spikeball are popular beach sports you can play in winter.
On a sunny day, head to this animal park by Barefoot landing featuring an array of species and live shows. It’s a greater treat in the offseason with smaller crowds, so it’s like having a private showing! Besides gators, you can see bobcats, cassowaries, flamingos, and more.
RECOMMENDED: Hit the amphitheater to see snakes up close and personal. The staff are experts in this often-misunderstood reptile, and the kids might even get to hold a snake.
You know the spot — you see rave reviews online, but it’s tough to get a table in the middle of the busy season. It’s a great time to try a cuisine or eatery outside of your comfort zone. Myrtle Beach’s culinary scene is burgeoning. Enjoy it!
RECOMMENDED: Make a reservation at The Melting Pot. Even if you have a location where you live, you’ll want to experience it in Myrtle Beach, too.
Immerse yourself in marine life, with exhibits, live shows, and more. The best part: There’s a lot of hands-on activities the kids will enjoy. If the family loves the sharks and stingrays, consider an annual membership.
RECOMMENDED: Spring for the VIP Penguin Experience. Learn much in a 30-minute presentation, touch a penguin, and take-home art a penguin created with your help.
