Family Friendly Entertainment in Myrtle Beach

Girls eating cotton candy - family friendly entertainment in Myrtle BeachOne thing families love most about Myrtle Beach is that nearly everything is kid friendly, from the hotels to the beaches to the amazing Myrtle Beach entertainment options. That’s why we’re one of the top family-friendly vacation destinations in the country!

Here’s a quick list of some of our favorite kid-friendly entertainment options:

1. Water parks

In Myrtle Beach, you can take your pick of water parks and they all offer up their own unique version of splashy fun. Start with the great water amenities here at the hotel, including our 15,000 gallon indoor water park—the only indoor water park in Myrtle Beach. If you’re looking to head outdoors and hit up the largest outdoor water park in the state, it’s time to head over to Myrtle Waves. If, however, you are looking for a place that combines water park features and other fun, family activities, head to Wild Water & Wheels in Surfside.

2. Medieval Times

You’ve got to love dinner and a show, especially with a show like the one at Medieval Times! Kids and adults can all enjoy the action-packed, live jousting tournament with real horses and the food really is a feast fit for a king. When it comes down to it, who doesn’t love a good knight’s tale?

3. Mini golf

Little putters, big obstacles, and big laughs. That’s what mini golf is all about. And Myrtle Beach is practically the capital of mini golf! Bring the whole family down and get ready for a good time—just remember that it’s OK to sometimes bend the rules a bit for the smallest members of the family. Tip: Looking to save a little bit of cash? Go early to save money—most local mini golf courses up the admission after 6 p.m.

4. The Boardwalk and Downtown

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade is always the happening place to be. Luckily for you, during the summer, there’s free entertainment on the boardwalk, thanks to the Oceanfront Merchant’s Association’s “Hot Summer Nights”. There are free concerts and entertainment in Plyler Park and on the 9th Avenue stage almost every night through the end of August. And, on Monday nights from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Plyler Park is transformed into a kids’ carnival with face painting, inflatables, and more.

5. Broadway at the Beach

There is way too much to do at Broadway to list all of the family fun you can have, but suffice it to say there is always something fun happening there. From the free fireworks shows to the strolling entertainers and kid-friendly attractions from the aquatic to the fantastical, kids simply love Broadway at the Beach.

Of course, that’s just a quick list. The more you look, the more it seems as though there’s kid friendly fun everywhere you look in Myrtle Beach, from the hotels to the shows, restaurants and more!
