Check out some of the new things coming to the North Myrtle Beach area and add some to your vacation itinerary:
New Sports Complex – Don’t let the name fool you, this open-air venue is much more than just a sports complex. The pristine greens here offer several acres of outdoor space, several soccer and softball fields, an outdoor amphitheater, and two spacious play grounds. The sports complex hosts tournaments and events throughout the year that guests can attend and is also the perfect place for an afternoon picnic or play date.
Sea Turtle Exhibit at NMB History Museum – Have you ever wondered what a sea turtle skeleton looks like? This quirky South Carolina state animal is an endangered species and holds a special place to many of our residents. The North Myrtle Beach history museum recently announced a new sea turtle skeleton exhibit that will be on display at the museum beginning May 2nd. This would be a great activity to enjoy if you need to take a break from the sun and the sand!
