The July heat brings perfect weather for lying out in the sun on the sandy shore, butMyrtle Beachhas fun activities to be experienced away from the waves as well. The city is full of exciting opportunities from dinner shows and concerts to museums and theme parks. So during your weekend trip, spend a morning, afternoon, or evening at one of these great Myrtle Beach attractions:
You’ve seen what goes on above the surface of the sea at the beach, but step inside the Ripley’s Aquarium to discover what goes on underneath the waves. At this 750,000 gallon aquarium, visitors can walk through glass covered hallways and marvel at 10-ft. sharks, piranhas, sting rays, and much more. There are also hands-on activities in the facility as well as dive shows and educational demonstrations presented every hour.
One of the most exciting, wild, and delicious dinner shows in Myrtle Beach, the Pirates Voyage Fun, Feast, & Adventure Dinner and Show is a great place to take the family for an evening of entertainment and delicious food. Two pirate ships will clash during this production and audience members will cheer for their side throughout sword duels, cannon exchanges, and whatever else it takes to sink the opposing ship. A five course meal will be served along with this show to conclude a perfect evening that every member of the family will love.
Spend one of your weekend days at the 20 acre, largest park in the state, Myrtle Waves Waterpark. This day activity takes water fun to the extremes with 10-story water slides that launch riders at 50 ft. per second. Other attractions include a wave pool with 8 different sizes of waves, theLayZee River, and a kids’ area that features the Saturation Station, a Caribbean-themed volcanic water paradise, with 10-foot waterslides and waterfalls.
