Make It A Family Day

  By  Visit Myrtle Beach
A family enjoying the Myrtle Beach sunshine.

The Beach is where your family can belong! We strive to keep the Myrtle Beach area the most affordable beach vacation destination for families in America. Make a great family bonding day happen right here on our beautiful coast of 60 miles of white sandy beach. Start by booking your favorite place to stay on the oceanfront - that can be a game-changer for a great beach experience. 

Begin your perfect family day experience with breakfast or brunch at your resort or local breakfast house, easily found up and down Hwy 17. Your lunch and dinner await you at nearly a thousand choices of restaurants, everything from seafood buffets to steak houses, from casual tropical fare to pizza and more. You can always take your perfectly-planned picnic to the beach or a local park. Snack time, in between meals, is fun in our area as there are so many ice cream and yogurt shops in our area, located on right on the main thoroughfares.

Go bowling at one of the many bowling and arcade locations throughout our area. Or see a new movie at the many theaters

Go see one of the great family shows like Pirates Voyage, or Medieval Times. Check out the national recording artists at the House of Blues, the Alabama Theatre, the Carolina Opry, and Legends In Concert offer great Broadway-style shows that will amaze the entire family with music, costumes, and dance.

Want a simpler time with your family? You can always walk the beach, collect shells, and enjoy the activity of the sights and sounds of the waves, seagulls, and other families enjoying the ocean.

At night, movies are great fun, whether they are in-room, at one of the many cinema complexes, or a "movie in the park" or a "movie under the stars" program in North Myrtle Beach McLean Park, Valor Park at the Market Common, or in Surfside Beach at Martin Field. Many retail cinema complexes also offer 10 a.m. discounted summer movies for the kids.

While visiting our area, be sure to bring your family to the Boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach. This marvel is the centerpiece of the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. Enjoy a stroll up and down the grand edifice, a traditional American boardwalk with a fun-festival atmosphere, shops, and restaurants, as well as a showcase of natural beauty indicative of the entire beach area. Enjoy the nightly "Hot Summer Nights" free entertainment all summer long.

There are also fireworks throughout the summer across the entire Grand Strand, not just on the 4th of July. Find fireworks near you by using our blog.
