Myrtle Beach is one of the most popular vacation destinations anywhere in the United States. Every year, tourists from states across the country flock there to enjoy their summer months out on the shoreline. Even with that said, however, not everyone knows all of the reasons to visit Myrtle Beach, which is a pity because there are so many to choose from.

So join us, today as we break down seven great hints for visiting Myrtle Beach, this summer.

Beaches and Water Parks

The first point in today’s article is an obvious one, given that “beach” is right there in the city’s name.  Combining white sands and icy cool waters into a single dream destination, the Myrtle Beach shoreline is a hotspot for beachgoers during the summer months. And why wouldn’t it be? This is a picture-perfect hot American summer, with plenty to do, gorgeous people everywhere, and photo-ops aplenty.

Clocking in with an impressive 60 feet beach in many places, there is beach enough to go around for the hundreds of people and families visiting every year. And, with weather that never fails, it’s not just the summer months that work best for Myrtle Beach.

As the summer months bring in more heat, you may want to shake up your cooling off a little bit. That’s fine: nothing a little trip to the water park can’t fix. Take in one of the area’s several water-based parks and let your fun flag fly on ride after ride, in sunny Myrtle Beach.

One of Myrtle Beach’s biggest draws is its many awesome local attractions. Check out Broadway at the Beach and SkyWheel Myrtle Beach for an evening full of lights, fun, and activity. Visit the Pirates Voyage or The Family Kingdom during the day for nonstop fun-in-the-sun. With Alligator Adventure, Barefoot Landing, and a selection of zipline and rope courses, there’s enough to do that you’ll literally never run out of activities. For our money, Ripley’s Aquarium, the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the Pavilion Park are the perfect trio for a fun-filled day out in Myrtle Beach.

Parks and Intracoastal Waterways

A trip to Myrtle Beach wouldn’t be complete without a trip to one of the local state parks and gardens. Home to some of the most beautiful gardens anywhere on the East Coast, it’s places like Brookgreen Garden, with its thousand candlelight night or Myrtle Beach and Huntington Beach State Parks and their camping offerings, with horseback riding and tours, that really bring Myrtle Beach to life. Get out and experience a little nature in The Grand Strand, and discover the woodsy secrets on offer in this beautiful beach town.

The massive 3,000-miles Intracoastal Waterway which flows through Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas creates a perfect opportunity to make some memories out on the water. Rent a jet ski. Go kayaking. Take the kids out on a paddleboard or just sit by and watch all the paddlers paddling their way past you. However you choose to spend your day, this is one of the best reasons there is to visit Myrtle Beach.

Local Events and Music

Myrtle Beach is no slouch when it comes to local entertainment. This beach town is home to some of the most impressive festivals anywhere in the area, with massive events like the Atalaya Arts & Crafts Festival and the Myrtle Beach Seafood Festival to look forward to, every year. And, for the music lovers, there’s always the crème de la crème of the local music scene, the Carolina Country Music Festival.

There’s no better way to cap off a hot day in the sun like checking out a great band. With regular shows at the famous Carolina Opry, as well as scattered performances throughout the city, there’s music to spare in Myrtle Beach, so make sure to check it out.

The Boardwalk and Promenade

With nearby hotels, restaurants, and bars close on-hand and awesome shopping and entertainment options, the boardwalk is where a lot of Myrtle Beach’s action is. Which is why it’s a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Local Restaurants and Food Trucks

Next to sporting and entertainment activities, one of the leading reasons anybody visits anywhere has always been to sample the local cuisine. Seafood’s a big focus in the local restaurant business, and the dozens of fantastic eateries and food trucks serving up fresh food by the plateful will confirm that. Looking for something a little less… “of the sea”? There are plenty of great options for this, as well, from plenty of great local chefs and food professionals.
