For many families, heading to the boardwalk in Myrtle Beach is a tradition that they can’t miss. The Myrtle Beach boardwalk has many different things that will make families want to return every year from shopping to rides. Allow the kids to enjoy the Fun Plaza Arcade as you are strolling along the boardwalk. Eat at a few new places that you may have never given a try or let the kids do a few thrill rides. There is something for everyone on the boardwalk at the beach!

Aye-Aye Captain

Another fun activity that many families enjoy is heading over to Pirates Voyage and enjoying the show together. This is a dinner show that is one of the grand strands favorite to visit. Located next to The Carolina Opry and is one that you don’t want to miss. They entertain along with a 4-course meal that is to die for. Chant and cheer along as they show you how pirates are, and it’s a great show with many stunts. Pirates Voyage will be opening beginning on July 15th, 2020. Don’t miss this show on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach with the family!

Is that a Shark?

If you’re looking for an adventure to do on a rainy day, then head on over to Broadway at the Beach. Here you will find Ripley’s Aquarium where you and the family can spend the day. This is one of the best aquariums on the coast of South Carolina and is one that many families love to visit. From seeing sharks, to under the reef to seeing countless fishes in all species, it’s something for everyone. We promise that you will want to visit more than once on your next trip to Myrtle Beach Resort.

Fun Amusement Parks

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. After a fun filled day riding thrill rides and family fun rides, head back to our resort and relax a little in the A/C. Think of the fun your family will have checking both of these amusement parks out this summer!

While there are other fun things that you can enjoy on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach, we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your vacation to stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family this summer as you make new memories together!

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Do you have a spring break vacation planned to Myrtle Beach this year? If the answer is yes, then we understand that spending the week sitting on the beach soaking up the rays is just what you need.  Staying in one of our Two-Bedroom vacation rentals will keep you close to the beach but having the right things in your beach bag will allow you to enjoy your vacation. We have compiled a small list of what to pack in your beach bag for your next vacation to Myrtle Beach below.

Beach Bag Contents

Beach Towels

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

When you are on vacation making sure you have packed everything before you leave home is essential. So be sure to pack a towel for everyone in your family whether you are going to sit in the sun or swim in the ocean. Bringing an extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones with you. Having a beach towel with a different design can help each member in your group remember which one theirs is. Sewing one corner of the towel can allow you to have a little pocket so that you can place a phone or glasses in them to keep them from the sand.

Sunscreen

With the hot, southern sun sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof, sport, high SPF, etc.). Dermatologists suggests that you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very first day your here with a sunburn. Having a bottle of aloe that you can put into the fridge will help make the sunburns cool and feel refreshing in case someone in the family does get a little too much sun one day.

Mesh Sand Toys Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Anytime you go on vacation with kids, you have to bring a ton of sand toys with you. We understand bringing sand back with you into your vacation rental is not necessary and can be quite a hassle. So, if you pack a mesh bag such as a laundry bag or a bag specifically for beach toys can help eliminate the mess. Just throw the sandy toys into the bag, give it a good shake or two and leave the sand behind at the beach.

Hats & Sunglasses

Packing sunglasses and hats are a must anytime you visit Myrtle Beach. The sun is much hotter than it is in the north, so we want to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. Having sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. Don’t forget to pack one for everyone in the family.

Water Resistant Phone Pouch

Between the water, sun and sand, the beach is filled with many things that can damage your phone. Bringing a water-resistant pouch to the beach can be a lifesaver for many. If you come on vacation and realize you don’t have one, a sandwich bag or Ziploc bag will do the same as the phone pouch. They will keep your phone protected from the elements at the beach and you can even use it while it’s in the bag or pouch.

Baby Powder for Sand Removal

Baby powder may not seem like an item you would bring with you to the beach, but it’s a wonderful hack for anyone who is on vacation. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all over you when you leave the beach. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the kids.

Reading Material

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

One way that you can improve your tan and your mood is by bringing a book or magazine to the beach. We understand that bringing your children to the beach means less time to read a book, but maybe bring a few of their books too. This way when you are ready to read a little, have them come play in the sand near where you are or have them sit under the umbrella and read a little bit of their own book.

There are many other things that you can pack into your beach bag, but these are the must have items for your next vacation. If you are still searching for the perfect resort to stay at for spring break, then check out our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals. We can’t wait for your family to come and vacation with us!

Beach Ball Potato

4 Kid-Friendly Beach Activities for your Next Vacation

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.
