Things to do in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina?

Asked by Disc2021 (4491points) February 26th, 2010

Me and a few friends are staying at a beach house in Myrtle Beach for a few days over spring break. What are some cool things to do around town for a group college students in their 20s?

what else but party on the beach

Check out the babes. Surf. Play ball. Walk the boardwalk. Eat, drink and be merry…

Besides go to the airport and fly away? Get plastered at the beach and have sexual intercourse with people you don’t really know. : )

Parasailing, Family Kingdoms Water Park, there are jeep tours and Riverboat trips.

If you are of age, there are a bunch of nightclubs for nightlife.

Here is a good resource.

@marinelife…those are nice suggestions, but the context of this topic revolves around a bunch of strapping 20-something college students

@Disc2021 if you happen to be sober, you can checkout the NASCAR Speedpark.

Not much. Traffic jams, shopping for cheap crap, and golf. (You may have guessed that it’s not my favorite place.)

Visit old folks in the Nursing Home, embroider, practice violin, write poetry, read up on animal husbandry, share fun facts about doll making, and end the night with frozen soda treats followed by a good tooth brushing with a good fluoride toothpaste of course you rascal.

Burroughs & Chapman Art Museum.

That place is so cool. They always have great exhibits, it’s free, and the building itself is really nice.

Ok I was kidding what’s your excuse.
I would figure with that name you’d be a party animal. It’s SPRING BREAK dammit.

I went to Myrtle beach last springbreak and it sucked for me;ICE COLD WATER, The sands were covered with sharp shells, seemed like a ghost town compared to Destin and Panama City, nothing out of the ordinary, and so on. I would recommend going here for a Family trip only; with friends, go somewhere more lively like Panama City, FL

I grew up only an 1.5 hours from Myrtle Beach and I have family that’s lived there and around there for years (they still live there). It’s definitely full of bars/clubs and people. I’m not sure when @MrGeneVan was there, but it will be crowded for spring break. There aren’t many months when it isn’t crowded.

@marinelife Thanks for the link.

@njnyjobs Was never really into NASCAR but that’s an idea, ha.

@petethepothead Sounds interesting, we’ll have to look into that (especially if it’s free).

@MrGeneVan That’s rough! that’s why I’d figured I’d get some ideas – in case the water is unbearably cold yet. I’ve never really been there and we’re staying there for free (otherwise I’d go someplace else), I’m sure the novelty of exploration will at least be refreshing.

@jeanna_ Awesome, I look forward to going – even if drinking is my most appealing option.

well, if it were me, golf, golf, golf…and more golf. But, if i were you age, would forget the golf and find out where the girls are!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t been there in a long time, but just being there is fun. There’s plenty to do, but there is usually something fun going on down on the beach all of the time.

@BoBo1946: How about both?! Mayb bring a few on the links for a threesome?? Hhhmm yea I like the sound of that

@MrGeneVan Funny story, a different group of friends (one who has a dad living in Orlando, FL and offered to cover costs) just asked me to join them over spring break. My other group of friends haven’t gotten back to me on SC yet so I may just end up doing that.

Thanks errbody for the suggestions though, if I end up going to SC I’ll be sure to look into them.
