Your kid-friendly Myrtle Beach vacation

Myrtle Beach’s main claim to fame is its prime spot along South Carolina’s 60-mile stretch of beautiful beaches—but this hot spot offers much more than sand and sea. The ever-popular tourist destination, drawing in an estimated 14 million visitors each year, boasts a number of exciting attractions for all the family to enjoy. Thrilling amusement parks and water parks sit alongside entertaining music and show venues, perched on stunning piers. With the array of fabulous beaches, shops, and restaurants, it is the epitome of family-friendly seaside fun.

Things to see in Myrtle Beach

First of all, pay a visit to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park. As the name suggests, there’s a wide range of rides to choose from for all ages, from white-knuckle rollercoasters to go-karts, including one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters in the U.S. and a giant Ferris wheel with a height of almost 100 feet. Entry is free, meaning you only have to pay per ride. Another must-see is the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Voted one of best boardwalks in the United States, the pier runs for over a mile along the oceanfront, offering spectacular views. It also hosts a range of restaurants and shops, and impressive weekly firework displays. But for an even greater ranger of rides, restaurants, shops, and movie theaters all in one place, check out Broadway at the Beach. With over 100 specialty stores and attractions such as Ripley’s Aquarium, the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the Palace Theater, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained.
