What makes Myrtle beach
, South Carolina so different from every other beach resort
in the country? While the beaches
are spectacular and the main boardwalk is always alive with excitement, it's the ancillary entertainment that puts this town on the vacation map for so many.
Family Kingdom Amusement Park
Myrtle Beach is usually thought of as a great vacation destination for families, and Family Kingdom Amusement Park is just one of the reasons why. This huge water park sits right on the beach and is resplendent with pools, lazy rivers and exhilarating water slides.
For the family with a sense of adventure and a need for speed, there is the NASCAR SpeedPark. Don't think you have to be a fan of NASCAR to get a day's worth of fun out of this attraction. As long as you like going fast feeling the wind whip in your face, this park is perfect for you and your family. The primary attraction is Thunder Road, a chance for visitors to drive a 1/2 scale NASCAR car on a half mile course.
Combining the popular tourist attraction Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum with a full scale aquarium, Ripley's Aquarium brings families closer than ever to the oddest and most magnificent the ocean has to offer. If you have a large party, you can sign up for their special "Sleep with the Sharks" program, where you and your friends can sleep in the aquarium overnight, with sharks and fish swimming around you in the Dangerous Reef Tunnel.
Roulette, blackjack and poker await you on this cruise. Head out on the high seas for adventure fit for adults who want a little bit of Vegas style fun in their Myrtle Beach vacation.
Myrtle Beach State Park
With a fantastic beach, over three hundred campsites, a nature center and beautiful hiking trails, Myrtle Beach State Park lets the whole family get away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk and get back in touch with nature. Pets are welcome.
