I recently was given the chance to visit Myrtle Beach, SC as part of a blogger press tour. I got to enjoy all kinds of fun with a great group of ladies, but these 7 Kid Friendly Things To Do In Myrtle Beach really stood out to me.
Traveling with kids to beach may seem so simple to have fun with, but even kids get tired of the sand and water and need something different. These attractions were great additions to our tour that we enjoyed thoroughly, and I am sure will be perfect for your upcoming fall weekend getaway or family vacation.
7 Kid Friendly Things To Do In Myrtle Beach
The Beach: Of course a trip to Myrtle Beach isn't complete without time on the beach. We stayed in a gorgeous beach side home called the Washed Ashore Beach House, but if that isn't in your budget, there are dozens of other options near the beach through Surfside Realty to choose from. A beach condo gives you the ease of fixing meals in house, quick trips to the bathroom with kids as needed while on he beach and breathtaking views each sunrise and sunset. The good thing about Myrtle Beach is that it makes an excellent fall travel destination since the temperatures remain mild and warmer well into October.
Skywheel: If you like seeing a gorgeous view, the Myrtle Beach Skywheel is the best place to go. This Ferris Wheel attraction is an icon on the boardwalk, and well worth enjoying with your family. The slow moving cycle gives you a safe slow movement that is easy on those who tend to have a fear of heights or motion sickness (trust me - I have both and loved this!). They even have a VIP gondola that has a glass bottom!
Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum & Aquarium: Myrtle Beach has both a traditional Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum as well as a Ripley's Aquarium. They have tons of great hands on activities, oddities and fun for kids and adults alike. If you check in person or on their website, you may be able to get discounted tickets when you visit both locations.
Myrtle Beach Boardwalk: The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk area has tons of offerings. Gift shops, ice cream parlors, burger places, of course the Skywheel mentioned above and even special events on particular nights with live concerts, games and bouncy houses for kids.
Wonderworks: What a great place this was! We had so much fun going through this crazy backwards house full of hands on educational activities for kids. We stood inside a house with hurricane force winds, saw people riding a man powered amusement park ride, tested our brains to see who was the calmest and even got to feel how cold the water was when the Titanic sank. They have tons of arcade areas, and even a huge and fun laser tag floor. If you want to do a ropes course, that is included in admission price as well!
Myrtle Beach Segway Tour: This was one of the best things on our trip. While you have to be 15 or older to ride a Segway, they do have bicycle and trike rentals so there are options for the entire family to check out. A Segway tour is tons of fun, and they are much easier to ride than expected. As you can see, our group of ladies had a ton of fun and totally conquered their Segway fears! They have multiple options, so you have plenty to choose from!
Captain Hooks Miniature Golf: We didn't get a chance to visit here because it was raining on our planned day to play, but we drove by this location a dozen times. Everything we saw, and our personal tour guides recommendations said it was a perfect place to have fun for a few hours of good old fashioned miniature golf with the kids.
These kid friendly things to do in Myrtle beach are all great for the entire family to enjoy. Not only will you have tons of fun with your family in this beach destination, you'll have gorgeous views and phenomenal food. Having spent 4 days in Myrtle Beach, I can attest to the fact that this is truly just the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of fun family friendly activities, stores and restaurants up and down the boardwalk area, in South Myrtle Beach and in the low country.
