When we heard Broadway Grand Prix opened their doors a little early this year, we were so excited! As the mom of two boys who love anything with wheels, it’s one of our favorite spots. Centrally located in Myrtle Beach just across from Broadway at the Beach , Broadway Grand Prix is the perfect spot to spend a sunny spring afternoon. This awesome racing attraction is home to seven Go-Kart tracks, a rock wall, an 18-hole mini golf course, the Sky Coaster, the Grand Prix arcade and a large snack bar. My four-year-old and I spent a LOT of time on…

There is so much I have always loved about living in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Now that I have two young children of my own, I’ve had the chance to rediscover the area through their eyes.

Here is a round-up of ten favorites: Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park I’ll start with one of my favorites (or two, rather). Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State…

Friday, February 15, 2019 10:00 AM by Nora Battle

Rockin Jump is the Myrtle Beach area’s first indoor trampoline park and home to large open jump spaces, a challenge course, a vertical ops wall, dodgeball, a foam pit, rock wall and more. It’s great any time of year, but it’s an especially awesome attraction for times of year when it’s cooler and you don’t necessarily want to be outside. While I’ve visited Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park in Myrtle Beach on several occasions, this past weekend was the first time I’ve actually taken my two kids. I’ve taken tours and gone with adults as part of a…

But a day or two of rain shouldn’t deter you from having a good time and making the most of your time away on vacation… especially when you take a look at the many activities perfectly suited for an overcast day.…
