With fewer crowds and significantly lower prices, January is the perfect time to visit. We’re here to help you discover some of Myrtle Beach’s lesser-known family-friendly treasures while you enjoy a budget-friendly stay at the Myrtle Beach Resort.

Huntington Beach State Park

Huntington Beach State Park is a tranquil natural haven just a short drive from Myrtle Beach Resort. In January, you can enjoy peaceful walks along the pristine beach, spot various bird species, and visit the Atalaya Castle. The castle was the former winter home of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington and now serves as a museum. The park is great for picnics with the family and having nature adventures together.

Ripley’s Aquarium

If you experience a rainy and chilly day, head to Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach. This indoor attraction is both entertaining and educational for all ages. Marvel at the colorful marine life in the various exhibits, see the mermaids, and we can’t forget about the interactive touch tank. There are so many exhibits that it’s hard to share with you, but we promise that the aquarium is a favorite for locals and visitors.

Broadway at the Beach

We can’t forget to mention the many other attractions like WonderWorks and the Hollywood Wax Museum. Not only will the kids have a blast, but the adults will, too.

Myrtle Beach offers a different but equally delightful experience in January compared to the summer season.

Myrtle Beach is a great place to get the best of both worlds, with the beach and amusement parks. There are now two that are located on the Grand Strand and just a short drive from our resort. Family Kingdom is a short 10 minute drive and has been open since 1966. The Funplex Myrtle Beach just opened up a few weeks ago and is a short 15 minute drive. Both of these parks offers rides for all ages and is perfect for a day or evening at the park.
