Family Fun This Summer at The Boardwalk
Guests looking for a great place to let loose or enjoy a night out on the town will definitely want to check out the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk during their beach getaway. Ranked as the #3 boardwalk in the entire nation by National Geographic, this recently renovated portion of the downtown Myrtle Beach area offers a family friendly environment and an eclectic selection of quaint beach shops and local restaurants. The Boardwalk is also a great place to find local events and concerts, particularly during the summer. Check out some of the fun things you can look forward to this summer at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk:
Hot Summer Nights
This popular family friendly event is quickly becoming a Myrtle Beach tradition. Guests who visit the beach during the summer can look forward to events just about every single night of the week! Mondays offer a festive kids’ carnival with rides, inflatables, walking street entertainment, and more while Saturday evenings offer a spectacular oceanfront fireworks show. Other nights offer open-air, seaside concerts and plenty of activities for children. The best part is – all of these events are free! Check the Boardwalk Website for specific festival information.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk offers a wide array of live entertainment during the summer. The Hot Summer Nights events bring in local and regional artists throughout the week and provide an oceanfront venue where guests can enjoy a variety of genres and performers for free! Additionally, many of the restaurants along the boardwalk feature live music throughout the week. Restaurants like Bandito’s Cantina, Landshark Bar & Grill, and Beach House Restaurant (to name a few) all provide scenic outdoor decks, cold drinks, and plenty of music to keep you dancing all night long.
The Boardwalk portion of the downtown area is packed with fun, family friendly attractions that are ideal for when you need a break from the salt and the sand. Explore new heights at the SkyWheel, a Ferris wheel-esque ride that takes riders soaring 150 feet into the air or reconnect with your inner child at one of the oceanfront arcades. Other popular attractions include the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum, the Second Avenue Pier, ZipLine Adventures, and several putt-putt golf courses.
