For those that are seeking to get outdoors to enjoy the gorgeous weather and mild temperatures, here are five fun outdoor things to do!
1. Go Horseback Riding
One of the most entertaining ways to tour Myrtle Beach is from the back of a horse.
The horses are well trained so you don’t need any riding experience, just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
The trail leads through the nearby forest and on to the beach where you can direct your horse to the ocean for a splash in the waves.
Exploring Myrtle Beach by horseback is an activity the entire family will love.
2. Play Golf
Myrtle Beach is one of the most well known golfing destinations in all of the United States.
There are so many Myrtle Beach golf courses to choose from that you’ll want to do a little research before getting there.
Be sure to think about the criteria of the course you choose. Are you looking for beautiful scenery? For a challenge? Or do you want to play at a less challenging golf course for beginners?
Even if participating in a round of golf is not your thing, you may be interested in watching a live tournament to see the best of the best swing their clubs.
Be sure to check the listing of golf tournament dates so you know exactly who will be playing and when.
Along with professional golf courses, Myrtle Beach also has a number of entertaining themed miniature golf courses.
3. Go Fishing
Fishing off the coast of Myrtle Beach is a great way to spend a day while on vacation. If you are interested in joining a fishing boat or even if you want to charter an entire private boat for your party, your requests will be granted.
The further out to sea, the better chance you’ll have to hook a larger variety of fish. Be on the look out for King Mackerel, Barracuda, Snapper, Marlin, Sailfish and Triggerfish.
4. Enjoy the Beach and Water Sports
As a beach destination, you can bet there are lots and lots of fun activities dedicated to water enthusiasts.
Does parasailing, riding a jet ski, or learning to scuba dive sound fun? Myrtle Beach has just about every water sport you could ever imagine, from calm paddle boat rides to thrilling banana boat rides.
5. Stay at a Campground
Instead of staying at a luxury hotel, why not pitch a tent or rent a camper truck for your stay at Myrtle Beach. Some campgrounds cater specifically to families while others are set up for RV style camping.
Choose a campsite away from the beach in the maritime forest shade, or even better, camp just steps from the Grand Strand beachfront with a view of the ocean.
Waking up with the soft rays of the morning sunshine paired with the sound of gentle waves is the perfect way to begin your day at Myrtle Beach.
Myrtle Beach is a fantastic destination, especially when you take advantage of the incredible outdoors.
