Are you planning to visit South Carolina with Sundance Vacations this summer? Allow us to introduce you to one of our most popular resorts on the east coast—Myrtle Beach Resort! If you’re looking for relaxation, elegance, and boatloads of fun rolled up into one, then this Myrtle Beach summer vacation guide is for you!
When thinking of the marshy swamp gardens of South Carolina, the first animal that might come to mind is the sharp-toothed, scaly alligator. Well, if you’re brave enough to get up close and personal with these reptiles, you can enjoy feeding shows and live gator-handling at Alligator Adventure. You might even see the famous Utan, a 20-foot croc! Other animals include squirrel monkeys, spotted hyenas, and mountain lions. New exhibits are regularly being added!
If you’re looking to “sea” unique marine life, Ripley’s Aquarium is always offering new and exciting experiences for the kiddos. Along with Penguin Encounters and Stingray Experience, Ripley’s recently introduced Sloth Valley, where you can meet a pair of two-toed sloths. Ripley’s also holds monthly sensory events to accommodate every guest! Upcoming events include Breakfast with a Mermaid, Summer Night Swim, Crafty Crustaceans Camp, Sharks and Rays Camp, and Jr. Aquarist Camp!

People who say that malls are going out of fashion have clearly never been to the Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach! This 1,047,732 square feet space harbors popular shops, eateries, and entertainment venues like H&M, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel, and Cinemark! If you’re looking to shop on your trip, this is your one-stop-shop for everything you’ll need. Be sure to view current deals for each store!
810 Billiards and Bowling is not your average, modern-day arcade. Games like bowling, bocce, billiards, table tennis, foosball, darts, or shuffleboard will get the whole family on their feet and in the middle of the fun. Playing competitive games can work up an appetite, so be sure to check out the food menu filled with finger food favorites like burger sliders, potato skins, and loaded nachos! Also located at Market Common is the new Mean Mugs Milkshake Bar, and just by looking at the pictures of these sweet creations and chocolate delights, we can tell that these are some of the best milkshakes in Myrtle Beach!
Other indoor activities for your family to enjoy:
- Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show (which you can read about in detail here!)
- Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center
- WonderWorks Myrtle Beach
For the Adults
With gorgeous ocean views and a lineup of ever-changing live music, Tin Roof is the premiere spot for food, fun, and delicious drinks. Its casual atmosphere allows for a comfortable night out, especially when you chill on the open-air rooftop patio! Mouth-watering menu options include wings & tenders, quesadillas, and Nashville hot chicken. Be sure to check their calendar for upcoming entertainers and daily drink specials!
Crocodile Rocks is a dueling piano bar that encourages audience participation. Performers cover songs such as “Joy to the World,” “Sweet Carolina,” and “Piano Man.” This two-level old-style bar room provides a New Orleans flair that keeps the energy high. Once you visit this Broadway at the Beach location, it’ll be your new go-to spot while in Myrtle Beach. You might even be called up on stage for a little performance of your own!
