Taking Your Grandkids to Myrtle Beach: Must-Do Activities

Once you’re a grandparent, you know that there is nothing better than taking your grandkids out for a good time—nothing against our kids, the grandkids are just more fun to spoil!

So if you’re lucky enough to have your grandkids on hand to spoil rotten on a trip to Myrtle Beach, here are a few of our favorite activities that grandparents and grandkids can do together:

• Take them for ice cream and a hot dog
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is a favorite for all ages, with great people watching, amazing ocean views, and fun shopping opportunities. And while you’re there, make a stop at Peaches Corner, which was named by USA Today as the main reason Myrtle Beach was named on a list of having the best boardwalk food in the nation. USA Today specifically mentioned “The Bruiser,” a beer-battered foot long hot dog wrapped in bacon and slathered with chili, onions and cheese, but we also love Peaches’ B-Day Cake milkshake.

• Go for a carousel ride
Broadway at the Beach is filled with fun places to take kids, but one favorite spot for grandparents is Pavilion Nostalgia Park & Carousel Park. The Carousel Park includes a classic 1912-era carousel which was relocated to Broadway at the Beach from the original Myrtle Beach Pavilion after it closed in 2007. But there are also plenty of other rides for kids of all ages.

• Stroll the pier and go fish!
There are a number of piers in Myrtle Beach, and they’re all great places to take your grandkids. We like the historic Pier 14, which is just about 10 minutes drive from Island Vista Resort. At Pier 14, you can rent fishing poles and fish, check out the gift shop and watch the fishermen reel in a fresh catch.

Whatever you do with your grandkids in Myrtle Beach, be sure to take plenty of pictures! The memories will last a lifetime.
