Best Things to Do in Myrtle Beach

One of the reasons families love Myrtle Beach is because of the range of activities by the shore. Its nutmeg-colored sand is compact enough to bike on, but the waters are also pleasant (and clear enough) for a little snorkeling or scuba diving at certain points. Other popular activities include more than 100 golf courses, as well as putt-putt courses for the smallest golf pros; amusement parks, such as the Family Kingdom Amusement Park, located just a short drive from the beach; and live evening entertainment like traveler favorites Alabama Theatre and the Carolina Opry.
