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!
While there are many other fun things that are happening this weekend for Labor Day, we thought you’d like these. If you still haven’t made reservations to visit this weekend, we still have availability. We at Myrtle Beach Resort look forward to seeing you and the family before school begins back home!
Are you and your family coming to Myrtle Beach soon for your next vacation? IF the answer is yes, then we must tell you about 4 kid-friendly beach activities for your next vacation. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will keep you close to the surf and the sand. Let’s take a peek below at what those 4 activities for the beach are.
For any family who comes to vacation at the beach, they are
always looking for new things to do with the kids. This is a classic thing that
your kids can do together or with you, boogie boarding. Head to the store where
you can pick up a boogie board or two to help make this activity happen.
Who knew that blowing bubbles on the beach could be more fun
than at home? Making your own bubbles or getting a bubble wand from the local
dollar store will help keep the kids entertained. Watching the bubbles blow in
the wind from the ocean is always fun and never gets old. This is a kid- friendly
activity especially for the younger ones who want something to do while they are
having a good time.
Beach Ball Potato
Have you ever played hot potato at home? If you have then
this is just like that game only you use a beach ball. Be sure to bring a small
radio or your smartphone loaded up with fun kid music. Start the music and pass
the beach ball around in a circle and when the music stops, the kid holding the
ball is out. This game is great for everyone and can be played on the sand or
indoors, whatever works best for your family.
Just like snow angels that can be made in the snow, your
kids can make sand angels instead. This can be a fun activity that all kids will
love as it means they can get messy. Have each child lay in the sand and make a
jumping jack movement on the sand to make their angels. But we must warn you
that your child will have sandy hair and bodies. Good news is that there is
always the ocean to rinse all that sand off afterwards. What a great memory to
make while on your next family vacation!
While there are many other beach activities for the kids to do, we thought to share these few. If you still haven’t made your next reservation to stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort, now is the time. We hope that new memories will be made here on the sand and you will enjoy the last moments of summer!
June will be here in just a few short days and that means that summer will begin soon. When you and your family stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort you will be close to where the fun is at. From spending the week on the beach to spending the nights out on the town, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. Let’s take a look at what fun things you and your family can enjoy while on vacation here in Myrtle Beach this June.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans Game
Baseball season is here and it means that you and the family can head to see the Myrtle Beach Pelicans play a game or two. Happening over at the Pelicans Ballpark is where you will find the stadium to see the local team play against many of the other teams such as the Wilmington Blue Rocks, the Fayetteville Woodpeckers and more. Tickets to see the games can cost as little as $9 per person and we can promise you that there is not a bad seat in the stadium. The Pelicans also have several promotions held weekly including Half Price admission with a Backpack Buddies donation and BOGO Hebrew National hotdogs because we know you can’t see a baseball game without getting at least a hotdog to snack on. Don’t miss the fun that you can have while seeing a great game cheering on the local team.
24th Annual Corvettes Beach Car Show
If you have someone in the family who loves cars, then this event is for you. Join in on the fun at the 24th Annual Corvettes Beach Car Show at Broadway at the Beach this year starting on Friday, May 31st. This is a place where even the youngest child to the oldest child at heart will be able to see some beautiful muscle cars. The car show will be two days long, but you will be able to see which car is the best and which one you wish you had. The event is free for all who would like to attend and is something that you won’t want to miss every year.
See the Light Float
For something new that your family has never done before we suggest giving the Water Lantern Festival a try this year. Held at the Grand Park at the Market Common is where you will find this fun festival for everyone of all ages. This event does cost $25 per person but we promise you that it’s something you will never forget. Happening on Saturday, June 29th from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm, is where you and the family can design your own water lantern before setting sail on the lake for a beautiful display. Along with live entertainment and food trucks it will be a night to remember.
Grand Strand Nightly Fireworks
Many families have fond memories of going on vacation to the beach each year and getting to see the nightly fireworks. Don’t wait until the 4th of July to see them as you will be able to see them beginning in June. North Myrtle Beach is where you can head over to Barefoot Landing on Monday nights at 10:00 pm to see the amazing display in the sky. A few other places that you will be able to check out for fireworks are at Broadway at the Beach and at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans games. Be sure to check them out on your next family vacation to the beach.
While there are many other fun events and activities happening around town, these are the few we thought you’d enjoy.

Enjoy some endless family-friendly fun when you come visit Myrtle Beach. From swimming to golf, you will find countless ways to enjoy your fall vacation. One of the most popular activities around here happens to be fishing. And of course, while staying in one of our oceanfront condo vacation rentals, you will be close to several different fishing piers. We know that some of the most relaxing fishing can be done on one of the local piers. Below are our picks for the Myrtle Beach fishing piers.
Cherry Grove Pier
Cherry Grove Pier is a wonderful pier to start fishing at if you have never done so before. Many visitors come to the quaint town of Cherry Grove, SC and was built in the 1950’s. This pier has been family owned since 1965 and many have considered this as an iconic landmark. If you are coming to try out fishing but don’t have any fishing gear, have no fear. Cherry Grove Pier will allow you to rent fishing rods and you can get your fishing license here too. It costs $24 all day to rent a rod with a $30 deposit on it. It will cost you $16 for after 3 pm. And if you don’t feel the need to fish, you can walk the pier for $3. If you bring your own rod then it will be $3 for admission and $7.50 for each rod. They also carry fishing bait and a full line tackle shop as well.
Pier 14 has been around since the 1920’s and many still call it 14th Avenue Pier. It is known to many locals as the historic pier and has the famous Pier 14 restaurant there. The restaurant has been known to many visitors as one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach. You can come and rent fishing poles again where it costs $8 plus a $20 refundable deposit. If you are looking to fish with your own gear, then it costs $7 for the fishing pass and $2 for an additional pole. Please note that they do have a pole limit per person so you can only use 2 poles per person. 14th Avenue Pier also has bait in their shop so you are able to grab squid, shrimp, mullet and finger mullet for your fishing trip. They are open from 7 am to 11 pm so don’t miss out on the fun!
While there are other fishing piers that you can visit in the Myrtle Beach area, we just thought these two were a good option for you. And if fishing off a pier isn’t for you then how about try out a Deep-Sea fishing experience. If you are still searching for an oceanfront condo vacation rental, we have several for you to choose from this fall. We hope to see you this fall while the weather is turning a bit cooler but you can still enjoy the sunshine and beach!
