Five Fun Myrtle Beach Attractions to Check Out When You’re Not on the Golf Course

The beach is a no-brainer – miles of sand, sun and sea with all of the ocean-related activities one could ask for. But where else do golfers go when they’re not on the course in Myrtle Beach? With the amount of growth in the area, it’s a good bet that a lot has changed since your last visit to the Grand Strand.

It all has to start with the newest attraction in Myrtle Beach. If you’re looking for a fun indoor activity to get a little break from the afternoon heat, look no further than the great ape climbing the faux Empire State Building. The much-anticipated Hollywood Wax Museum is actually three attractions in one. The main attraction is the Hollywood portion of the museum, but with the popularity of The Walking Dead TV show, the Outbreak zombie attraction is definitely worth checking out. There’s also a Maze of Mirrors, which is fun for all ages.

Once you’ve had your fill of lifelike wax celebrities and zombies, it’s time to get up close and personal with some genuine flesh eaters. Dangerous Reef at Ripley’s Aquarium features some large sharks, as well as snappers, stingrays and a giant sea turtle. How thick is that glass again? The aquarium also offers a very cool interactive exhibit Friendship Flats, where you get touch rays as they swim in the shallow water. Ripley’s is a part of the expansive entertainment area known as Broadway at the Beach. Golfers will find endless dining, shopping and entertainment options at this outdoor venue.

If you’ve left the golf course and sports are still on your mind, head over to the ballpark to watch some potential future Major League Baseball stars at a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game. As the Class A Advanced affiliate of the Texas Rangers, the Pelicans provide serious baseball action and promotions every home game. If soccer is more your style, check out the Myrtle Beach Mutiny of the National Premier Soccer League. Mutiny soccer is a great opportunity to watch up close as young players try to get noticed in the soccer world.

While it’s hard to compete with the world-class golf in Myrtle Beach, there are a number of other entertainment options to fill the rest of your day with fun. Book your Myrtle Beach golf trip today!
