- Myrtle Beach Bike Rentals-N-Tours – Biking is a great way to explore this iconic seaside resort city. Inviting bike lanes along Ocean Drive make it easy to navigate your way to many beachfront attractions. Or, ditch the asphalt and head for the tightly-packed sand of Myrtle Beach, ideal for a shoreline bike ride. Myrtle Beach Bike Rentals-N-Tours delivers bikes right to your door, and also offers bicycle tour packages.
- La Belle Aimee Vineyard – This region is home to the muscadine grape, a hearty variety that produces wines of varying sweetness. Sample some at La Belle Aimee Vineyard in Little River, about 20 miles north of Myrtle Beach along the Grand Strand. Enjoy wine tastings, vineyard tours and concerts all year long.
- T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station – Visit T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, a wildlife conservation facility that features “animal ambassadors”—including Siberian tiger cubs—who you can pose and interact with for a fee. It’s a memorable experience for the whole family.
- Brookgreen Gardens – Brookgreen Gardens is a gorgeous, 9,100-acre outdoor museum south of Myrtle Beach. Included in TripAdvisor’s 2013 list of Top Ten U.S. Public Gardens, Brookgreen is home to lush, colorful display gardens featuring 300-year-old oaks, plus over 1,400 elegant sculptures and a zoo with an amazing variety of rescued wildlife.
- Alligator Adventure at Barefoot Landing – The American gator is a dangerous creature, but you can view these fierce predators safely at Alligator Adventure at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach. Exciting live feedings showcase the strength and prowess of these semi-aquatic reptiles.
- Myrtle Beach Helicopter Rides – Soar above the beach on a range of breathtaking aerial tours of the Grand Strand, with views that will give you a different perspective of this scenic area.
- Make Shopping Your Outlet – Shopping is always a fun activity and the bargains at Myrtle Beach outlet stores can offer extra value. Shoppers won’t want to miss the Coastal Grand Mall, the second-largest mall in the state with over a million square feet of retail space.
- Spot a Dolphin – These highly intelligent mammals fill the waters of Myrtle Beach. You can pay these friendly creatures a visit by taking one of the many dolphin cruises operating in the area, but one of the best ways to see them in on a personal watercraft tour if you want to get up close.
