Myrtle Beach Speedway has served as a training ground for generations and generations together. Few of the biggest names like Dale Earnhardt Junior, Jeff Gordon, Petty, Bodine, Labonte, Jarrett and Hendrick have kicked off their grand journey from this very ground. Every Saturday night, you can see the future stars racing right in front of your eyes. For all you car-racing buffs, this is the finest entertainment destinations which provides value for your money.
When a water park advertises 30 thrill rides inside of 20 acres, you know you're in for a very wet, fun day. The adventurous slides have names like Turbo-Twisters and Pipeline Plunge while more sedate ones like the LayZee River and Ocean-in-Motion provide more tranquil pursuits. Admission includes all day rides, optional life vest, free parking, tubes, showers and changing facilities. The park also rents poolside cabanas and when you're hungry, there is a variety of options, Sharkie's Snack Shack for a quick bite, pizza at Pizza and More or full meals at Islands Cafe.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans are Class A affiliates of the Atlanta Braves. This is the real thing. Games are held at BB&T Coastal Field in the heart of Myrtle Beach. There are no obstructed seats and the field is small, so you can see (and hear) everything. There are races and games between innings, and prizes are often given out at the end of the game. Splish! and Splash!, the mascots, entertain and encourage the fans during the game and are often seen at Myrtle Beach activities throughout the year.
Try a challenging rope course and zip across the lake at Broadway at the Beach. Harnessed safely, those who meet the height and weight restrictions can have fun "flying" 1000 feet (304 meters). There's also a rope course with 35 different features that spans three levels. Each level becomes increasingly more difficult. Combination zip line and rope course rates are available. For those brave souls willing to give it a go, this can be a lot of fun. Located next to the upside down Wonderworks building, this is one of the more popular attractions at this park. Check website for varying dates.
This is one amazing place. At Build-A-Bear, you do just that, build your own bear, lion, cat, dog, rabbit, koala, panda or other animal friend. You can delight in watching as your new furry pal is filled with stuffing and stitched right before your eyes. Then, it's time to choose a name and create your pet's birth certificate on one of the store's computers. Finally, you get to pick clothes and accessories for the finishing touches. Lines tend to be long during the summer; plan on waiting one hour to get into the store.
This park is located within Myrtle Beach's Market Common shopping and dining area. Valor Park is regularly used to host local concerts, festivals and public events.
Zip on over to Adrenaline Adventures newest attraction in Myrtle Beach. Take in the unparalleled view of the beach and surrounding Five Points area from over forty five feet in the air. Guests climb the stairs to the launch tower and strap into their gear before hurling over six hundred feet to the next tower at close to forty miles per hour. Six side-by-side ziplines ensure that friends and family can all join in on the fun.
Now you can not only watch a movie, but you can be part of it at the same time. The 3-D moving theatre lets you feel every bump, twist, turn and dive. Movies such as Glacier Run will make you glad your seat is bolted to the floor. This experience is not recommended for people who experience motion sickness, have heart problems or don't like fast rides.
Created in 1927, Pine Lakes Country Club is Myrtle Beach's first golf course. The original clubhouse was designed by Henry Bacon McKoy, more famous for his design of the Lincoln Memorial. Over the years, the course fell into disrepair, but it was restored in the 80's and its historic beauty was preserved. The course has a Southern feel with its local foliage, but it rolls around like a difficult Scottish one. Tee time rates are extremely affordable throughout the year; check website for specials and times.
Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, Jurassic Golf is a great place to spend a couple of hours either during the day or at night. You'll swear you've been transported to Jurassic Park itself. There are two colorful, interesting 18-hole courses with dinosaurs and other reptiles that squawk and hiss and plenty of jungle to play through and around. One course has more obstacles than the other and can be considerably more frustrating for younger children. Both are a very entertaining. Cost is $6 for adults; children under 4 free.
The first state park in South Carolina (aptly named after the town), is a playground for all ages. The park however, is not to be confused with the more hectic beach located right nearby, but there is still plenty of oceanfront and it is one of the last maritime forests of this type in the U.S. The facilities here allow guests to stay as long as they wish, whether it's just a day or a longer stay at a campsite or two-bedroom cabin for the whole summer. The Nature Center has animal and fish exhibits, flora and fauna from the area and an easy nature trail which is only 3/4 mile one-way. This park also has a store, gift shop, playground, and allows guests to fish from the pier with the required permit. For more information on camping, rentals, etc., check website.
For a fun rainy day activity, try the Paradise Skate Center. The facility is very large, clean and pleasant. On Saturdays during the afternoon skate, the skating director introduces the music and leads games for the kids. There is a snack bar, and benches and tables for spectators. Birthday celebration packages include admission and skate rental for 10 children, a party room, drinks for all, free return passes and more.
