Alice Flagg’s Grave: All Saints Episcopal Church Cemetery

Locals say the ghost of Alice Flagg haunts the Pawleys Island area, around the historic Hermitage and nearby graveyard.

2. Alligator Adventure

There’s a good chance you’ll get to see a live alligator feeding!

For a unique—and educational—experience, visit Alligator Adventure, one of the most popular attractions in North Myrtle Beach. There’s a good reason they call this place the Reptile Capital of the World. Open seven days a week, Alligator Adventure gives you the exciting opportunity to see hundreds of animal species, including albino alligators, crocs, snakes, lizards, exotic birds, monkeys and hyenas. 

This 15-acre park in Barefoot Landing is home to some of the animal kingdom’s most vicious predators, like Utan—considered the largest crocodile on exhibit in the United States at just over 18 feet. There’s a good chance you’ll get to see a live alligator feeding, where massive gators leap from the water to snatch a meal. All of the creatures at Alligator Adventure are a sight to see while you’re visiting Myrtle Beach, SC with kids.

3. Ripley’s Aquarium

Learn about jellyfish, the octopus and other colorful species.

Ripley’s Aquarium is not your average fish tank. Dive in—yes, in the water—to get up close and personal with sea creatures like sea turtles, giant stingrays and even sharks. For something a little less hands-on, try the Glass Bottom Boat Adventure, which puts you in the shark tank separated by a few inches of glass. 

Exhibits at Ripley’s Aquarium give kids a glimpse of the vibrant undersea life around the world, including the Rio Amazon and the Indo-Pacific coral reef. They’ll learn about jellyfish, the octopus and other colorful species that inhabit the ocean’s mysterious ecosystem.

4. Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show

A thrilling adventure your kids will always remember.

Don’t just go out to dinner. Go way out—as part of a thrilling adventure you and your kids will always remember.

What’s a beach vacation without a little friendly competition at your favorite miniature golf course? Myrtle Beach has plenty of options, including Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf, Cancun Lagoon Adventure Golf, Dragon’s Lair Miniature Golf, Gilligan’s Island Funland Golf and Hawaiian Rumble Mini Golf—rated the top miniature golf course in the world! (Be careful of the volcano.)

6. Hollywood Wax Museum

Hollywood Wax Museum
The Hollywood Wax Museum has it all!

Take the kids to the Hollywood Wax Museum to learn about and pose with their favorite superstars and snap pictures for the perfect souvenir. Prop stations have plenty of hats, microphones, tiaras and other swag to complete the shot. Say “cheese!” next to actors, athletes and style icons that look astoundingly real. 

While you’re there, get lost in Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors or capture zombies at Outbreak – Dread the Undead. If you’re looking for a fun and unique experience with kids, the Hollywood Wax Museum has it all. If you need help finding the museum, just look for the gigantic King Kong on the roof.

You can even zipline across the lake at Soar & Explore

Sit back and enjoy a Legends in Concert—a live tribute show featuring world-class impersonators. Plus, family-friendly festivals happen throughout the year, and fireworks displays paint the sky every Tuesday night during the summer months.

9. Activities on the water

Water Park
Myrtle Waves waterpark is always a huge hit!

After a whole school year spent sitting at their desks, kids are ready to let loose when they visit Myrtle Beach. Rent kayaks or take surf lessons to let them channel all that pent-up energy. Myrtle Beach also has plenty of options for jet ski rentals, paddle boarding, wakeboarding, water tubing, water skiing and wake surfing. 

Families can hop on a charter boat for some deep sea fishing or take a dolphin cruise to see these playful creatures right off Myrtle Beach’s shores. 

With kids’ play areas, tubes, slides and more, Myrtle Waves waterpark is always a huge hit and a great way to beat the summer heat.

10. Outdoor excursions

More than 7,000 camp sites along the coast.

Did you know Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is considered the campground capital of the world? The Grand Strand boasts almost a dozen campgrounds and more than 7,000 camp sites along the coast. Make s’mores, tell scary stories and stargaze for the ultimate family vacation highlight. 

State parks are also a great way to take a break from the beach but enjoy the summer weather. Check out Myrtle Beach State Park or Huntington Beach State Park to get some fresh air and stroll along nature trails. Kids also love the T.I.G.E.R.S.
