Category - Rainy Day Activities

While it may sound best to say that it’s always sunny in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the truth is that it does rain from time to time. While the sunny days far outweigh rainy ones (Myrtle Beach is blessed with 215 sunny days a year), it can be frustrating to see clouds begin to form over what was planned as a perfect beach day. 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.…

This past week, for the first time since February, I ventured out to a couple of Myrtle Beach’s best kids’ attractions. We are season pass holders at Ripley’s Aquarium (located at Broadway at the Beach), so we started there. My plan was to visit right at opening on a Monday morning to ensure it would not be crowded—and we had the best time! After being home for nearly six months, the boys were thrilled to be out and about. They both wore their masks (as did I) and understood that if it was crowded, we might have to go home. However, with the…

Earlier this week, we had the chance to check out the new location of Edventure Myrtle Beach, previously known as The South Carolina Children’s Museum, at The Market Common. It was awesome! The new space is 3,500 square feet of space and flight themed exhibits, and offers educational programming, field trips, birthday parties and more. Children learn through hands-on exhibits incorporating science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts with a definite focus on aviation. There is an interactive spaceship exhibit children can climb…

News Flash: Sharks Live in the Ocean. And They’re Really Cool! Sharks are a source of both fascination and fear. They are an ancient species that has adapted and survived in our oceans for more than 450 million years, and although some species were once hunted to near extinction, many have made a comeback in recent decades. Worldwide, there are said to be more than 400 species of shark that range in size from a few inches to forty feet long. Off the coast of the Carolinas, there are usually 25 - 50 different species of sharks, depending upon…

So, the kids have spent two days on the beach. They’re having an amazing time, but by day three you’re thinking it would be a great idea to get them out of the mid-day sun.

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…
