    The Ripken Experience - Myrtle Beach. (843) 918-7815. The Ripken Experience opened in June 2006 as one of the nation's top youth sports facilities - with six youth and three regulation-sized baseball fields, each modeled after one of the game's historic parks, including the Polo Grounds, Comiskey Park, and Forbes Field. The Ripken Experience brings tournament play and baseball camps to the Myrtle Beach Area. Each of the fields at The Ripken Experience are made from FieldTurf®s, the game's most advanced artificial surface.

    Fishing.  Fishing can be enjoyed along the Grand Strand from one of eight piers, along the beach, as well as in backwater creeks between Georgetown and Little River, where the crabbing is great, too. More serious anglers can board a boat for bottom fishing, or charter a boat and venture all the way to the Gulf Stream, just 60-miles offshore, for true deep-sea sports fishing.

    Watersports.  Sailboat, jet-ski, canoe, and kayak rentals are offered up and down The Grand Strand. If exploring a historical shipwreck resting on the ocean floor sounds exciting, go scuba diving. Other options for a sporting good time include parasailing, surfing, boogie-boarding, and windsurfing.

    Tennis. The Myrtle Beach Area also boasts more than 200 tennis courts with a variety of surfaces.
