Fun Area Attractions in Myrtle Beach
Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the tourist heart of the city. Stretching down 1.2 miles of beautiful shoreline, it has been ranked by Travel and Leisure Magazine as the second best boardwalk in the country. It is home to weekly family-friendly attractions such as carnivals, music shows, live performances and more. You can go shopping down the middle section, catch a bite to eat and take in the local flair. Down the Southern Promenade, an oceanfront park affords travelers the chance to sit, have lunch and enjoy the view.
Carolina Opry OR Pirates Voyage: Fun, Feast and Adventure
Depending on the ages and inclinations of your family members, either of these dinner theater-style shows may be appropriate and fun for the whole family. The Carolina Opry is a world-famous musical variety show with comedy acts, musical performances and dance numbers in styles ranging from country, to rock n' roll, to bluegrass and more. The Pirates Voyage, located right next door, is more suited to a younger crowd, with a "watery wonderland where pirates will roam." The show features shenanigans aplenty, culminating in a pirate fight sure to amaze kids of all ages.
Myrtle Waves and Family Kingdom
Both Myrtle Waves and Family Kingdom have received national accolades. Myrtle Waves is one of the largest water parks on the East Coast, with dozens of rides and attractions, cabana rentals, shopping and family-friendly dining. Family Kingdom was listed in the top five U.S. amusement parks by a 2007 TripAdvisor survey. Admission is free, although each ride requires a separate small payment. Entertainers such as stilt walkers, magicians, clowns, balloon sculptors, jugglers and face painters roam the park and perform for free.
Soar + Explore
This place is a favorite among families who love the outdoors. Soar + Explore has prepared a number of adventures for visitors, including themed rope courses and zip lines set 50 feet above ground.

Visit WonderWorks if you need a break from the sun or if you are looking for some family-friendly nightly entertainment.
