Things to do in Myrtle Beach?

I hate to do this to you guys since I know how annoying it is, but as a NYC Knottie I have seen (and responded to) my fair share of tourist posts on our local board...

Any ideas for things that DH and I can do while on our 3-day stay in Myrtle Beach?  We will be there in the middle of Feb (mid-week).  Restaurants?  Activities?  Sights? TIA.

Re: Things to do in Myrtle Beach?

  • Myrtle Beach is a tourist trap.  Tons of shows and amusement parks.  February is a little off season but you should still find plenty to do.


  • Myrtle Beach is great.  You will find so much to do there.  I suggest Broadway at the Beach (shopping and entertainment), Barefoot Landing is very similar as well.  There are so many choices for dining out that there's really something for everyone.  Carolina Opry and Dixie Stampede should have a few shows during the week if you want to see a show.
  • Food:
    For really good seafood, avoid all those big, overdone crabshack type places.  I like Nance's in Murrells Inlet (not sure if it's open in Feb) and the Sea Captain's House on Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach.  Both have great views of the water.  I like Key West Grill at Broadway at the Beach, but it's just a huge, no view restaurant.

    Shopping!  There are several outlets, as well as Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing.

    Broadway at the Beach - shops, restaurants, bars, The Palace Theatre, Ripley's Aquarium and an IMAX.  Currently at the Palace: Le Grande Cirque and The Magical Spirit of Ireland.  For more on Broadway:

    Barefoot Landing - the older, less asphalt, version of Broadway.  Also has the Alabama Theatre and a House of Blues.

    The "center" of Myrtle Beach used to be the Pavilion and the area surrounding it, including a Ripley's Believe It or Not and the best tacky souvenir shop ever - the Gay Dolphin.  This area is now being surrounded by huge hotels and is losing most of it's charm, but it's still oceanfront!
  • As PP suggested, I highly reccommed the Sea Captian.. it's wonderful..
