Bringing the Family on a Myrtle Beach Golf Getaway? Check Out These 5 Fun Area Attractions
When you’re planning a Myrtle Beach golf getaway, your primary considerations are likely the courses you’ll play and the place you’ll stay. And when golf is a top priority during the stay, many players might be hesitant to bring any non-golfing family members along on the trip.
But in Myrtle Beach, widely renowned as the Golf Capital of the World, there’s lots going on beyond the links. In fact, the Grand Strand is loaded with family-friendly attractions and activities that can easily keep your family entertained while you’re on the course — and that you’ll likely want to check out, too.
Here are just a few highlights from the long list of family-friendly attractions and activities on tap when you plan a golf-focused getaway to Myrtle Beach:
When you’re on the course, golf can be serious business. But at Topgolf Myrtle Beach, the game can be fun for everyone — even those with little to no golfing skills. This entertainment venue/bar/restaurant boasts more than 70 climate-controlled bays from which players hit microchipped golf balls at targets on a driving range. A long list of games is available to choose from — some extra easy, others more difficult. And when not taking their swings, players (along with any non-players in attendance) can enjoy food, drinks, and fun.
2. MINI GOLF
Not only is the Myrtle Beach area home to some of the region’s most acclaimed golf courses, it’s also home to 50-plus mini golf courses. (In the past, the area has even played host to professional mini golf tournaments — and yes, pro mini golf is a real thing.) So if you’ve got any youngsters (or young-at-heart adults) in your vacation crew who might want to take a swing at the game on a smaller scale, Myrtle Beach is a hole-in-one destination.
3. THE BEACH
Of course, the Myrtle Beach area’s biggest attraction (both literally and figuratively) is the Atlantic Ocean. And for beach lovers, the Grand Strand offers more than 60 miles of stunning coastline. So, while visiting the area, vacationers have access to plenty of places where they can stroll along the shoreline, splash around in the waves, play beach games, or simply kick back with their toes in the sands and watch the world go by.
4. BROADWAY GRAND PRIX
Found at Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach, this attraction gives the speed lovers in your vacation crew plenty of reason to get revved up. Broadway Grand Prix offers a collection of seven different go-kart tracks, with options available for all ages and skill levels. Other on-site attractions include an arcade, two mini golf courses, bumper cars and a snack bar.
5. HELICOPTER RIDE
Looking to take your beach vacation to even greater heights? Myrtle Beach’s Helicopter Adventures will take visitors high into the skies above the Grand Strand for a bird’s eye view of some of Myrtle Beach’s biggest attractions, including the shoreline and the Atlantic Ocean. The wide-ranging (and high-flying) tour options run from the 2-mile Fly 4 Fun Ride to the 40- to 42-mile Grand Adventure.
