Experience Myrtle Beach with Kids: 7 Fun Things to Do

Myrtle Beach is one of America’s most iconic summer vacation destinations. The charming South Carolina beach town is famous for its boardwalk lined with eateries, shops and arcades, and its many seafood buffets. With over 90 golf courses, it is known as a top destination for enthusiasts of the sport. 

Myrtle Beach is also a popular destination for families traveling with kids. Located at the center of the Grand Strand, which is a 60-mile uninterrupted stretch of beach, it boasts white sand and blue waters. There are many more reasons to plan a trip to South Carolina’s most visited beach city with your children. Here are seven things to do in Myrtle Beach with kids.

Broadway Grand Prix

Feed your need for speed with a family go-kart race. This super fun spot has seven tracks, including some designed specifically for kids in designated age groups. Children need to be at least 40 inches tall to drive, but there’s plenty of cool activities for those who aren’t yet big enough. Rides, a rock climbing wall, a carousel, bumper boats, mini golf and a 20,000-square-foot arcade are some of the other attractions available at Broadway Grand Prix.

Pirates Voyage Dinner Show

Step inside the hideaway lagoon and enjoy an amazing four-course dinner and pirate show, complete with huge pirate ships. Full of swashbuckling, mermaids and adventure, you’ll be immersed in the story of the legendary Blackbeard and Calico Jack. The two lead their crew in an epic and unforgettable battle.


Allow your little ones to have fun learning, exploring and stretching their imagination at WonderWorks. This upside down amusement park has over 100 interactive exhibits. Zones include Extreme Weather, Space Discovery, Light & Sound and the Imagination Lab. There is also a glow-in-the-dark indoor ropes course, laser tag arena and 6D XD Extreme Motion Simulator Ride.

Myrtle Beach SkyWheel 

For the best views of Myrtle Beach, take a ride on the unmissable SkyWheel. From almost 200 feet up high, you’ll be able to see for miles in each direction from the comfort of your private, air-conditioned pod. For a truly unique experience, book the Rise & Fly Sunrise Flight. Watch the sun come up and paint the sky in light, while enjoying the delicious pastries and coffee included.

Myrtle Waves Water Park

Bring the family to South Carolina’s largest water park, which also happens to be one of the top-rated in the United States. Myrtle Waves is home to more than 30 exhilarating rides and water slides. Older kids will have a blast zipping down the Riptide Rockets, Turbo Twisters and Thunderbolt Speed Slides. Younger children will have fun in the massive Ocean in Motion Wave Pool, Lazy River, Saturation Station or Bubble Bay.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach

Observe and learn about marine life like penguins, sharks, sea turtles, sting rays and more at Ripley’s Aquarium. In addition to the thousands of species on display, visitors also can opt to take a glass bottom boat tour of the Dangerous Reef. With only three inches of glass between you and them, you’ll see majestic sea creatures of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The aquarium’s Breakfast With A Mermaid experience is popular. It allows families to meet and greet a mermaid over breakfast.

Pavilion Park

If you’re looking for a traditional boardwalk amusement park, then this is the place. Pavilion Park consists of two parks: the Action Park and the Fun Park. At the Action Park, adrenaline junkies will find plenty of wild thrill rides to keep their blood pumping. The Fun Park, on the other hand, has a more relaxed pace for those seeking chill fun. No matter your preference, you and your family are guaranteed to have a great time.
