- Spend Labor Day in Myrtle Beach with the Family
Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer but that doesn’t mean that you have to end it by not taking a getaway together. Many families love to take one last vacation before the kids have to go back to school and what a better place than to be at the beach. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will keep your family close to where they can have a little bit of fun too. Let’s look below at what your family can enjoy this coming up weekend on your last summer vacation of the year.
It’s a Race
What’s a better way to start out your Labor Day weekend than to have a little friendly family race together on the go-kart track. Over at Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park to try out the 7 different go-kart tracks. Depending on what you’re looking to do there is a track that everyone in the family will enjoy. And if go-karts are not your thing don’t worry because there are other attractions there for your family to do. From mini golf to the bumper cars you won’t hear “we’re bored” from the kids!
Explore & Soar Like the Wind
One way to make sure that your family can enjoy a fun adventure while on vacation during Labor Day would be to head over to Explore & Soar. Located at Broadway at the Beach is where you will find this amazing adventure. If you have kids who are into doing new things that require them to climb as high as they can, then this is the thing for them. Not only can you and your family do a fun outdoors ropes challenge, but they can also enjoy some over the water zip lining. What a fun adventure that everyone in the family can enjoy together and bring home new memories.
New Adventures Down the River
Go on a new adventure while you are at the beach but instead of hitting the sand and surf, head a little inland for this one. River Island Adventure is located in North Myrtle Beach about 7 miles inland from the ocean. This can be for any family looking to try something new and exciting like floating in a tube down the Waccamaw River. If that doesn’t sound like fun, then join in their own “Survivor” fun with escaping the island. This is something that the older kids will love, and you will love too because it’s something fun for everyone!
