Celebrate summer and all its fun in South Carolina this year. The year-round warmer weather turns up a couple notches and makes it a top choice for many vacationers looking to get away to sand, sun, water, and fun. Pack your bags and head to Myrtle Beach for summer fun. You’ll spend a good amount of time outside, but there are plenty of ways to beat the heat this summer in Myrtle Beach for a little break.

Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum

Tell the kids you’re going to a museum during summer vacation and the excitement for vacation disappears from their eyes. The summer months are a way for everyone, including students, to release the stress of everyday life, including school, tests, and all the rest, so they may not look favorably on educational activities during the break. Watch them immediately cheer up when you tell them it’s a museum dedicated to pinball. The “museum” has machines from as early as the 1970s all the way up to present day. Purchase tickets for a specific day and time on their website.

Ripley’s Odditorium & Aquarium

Robert Ripley is a famed accomplished traveler who saw some weird and wonderful things as he traveled the world. Make a visit to his “odditorium” full of those weird and wonderful discoveries during your summer vacation. You’ll also want to make sure to add in a visit to the aquarium, too. You’ll explore a number of exhibits featuring displays of some of the wild and crazy things he found throughout his travels.

If you make a visit to his “odditorium” full of those weird and wonderful discoveries, make sure to add in a visit to the aquarium, too. You’ll see a variety of marine life from around the world, like piranhas, poison dart frogs, rays, penguins, and more. You can even get up close and personal with certain species.


You’d think an outdoor attraction like a Ferris wheel isn’t the way to beat the heat, but you’d be wrong. Each of the 42 enclosed gondolas of the wheel are climate controlled – meaning warm in the winter and cool in the summer, making a ride a great way to beat the heat for a little while. The wheel is open 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily.


There are plenty of things to do and see during a beach vacation, but you’ll no doubt find yourself on the sand nearly every day. Take a walk along the shore, sunbathe, or pack a picnic for an all-day stay on the sand. Take a dip in the waves of the Atlantic, cast a line to see what’s biting, or up the adrenaline with jet skis or parasailing! Beat the heat by going during cooler times of the day and taking a regular splash in the waves to cool down.

Hollywood Wax Museum

Some people only dream of getting up close to their favorite celebrity. While it may not be your favorite actor, actress, singer, or other celebrity “in the flesh,” it will sure look like them! Take a tour of the museum where you can get close to your favorite people. Take silly selfies posed next to entertainers, race car drivers, actors, and more. Learn about their pet-peeves, accomplishments, pets, and other personal details.

Riddles Escape Rooms

As one of the most popular activities in the last several years, escape room facilities are popping up all over the country, and Myrtle Beach is no exception. Rooms are rated by difficulty and even come with age and group-size suggestions, so you can choose the right adventure for your group. Try your hand at themes like Marooned Island Escape, The Grande Strand Hotel, Mystery Mansion, or the TAVOS7 spaceship escape – “board” a luxury domestic spaceship for a journey through the galaxy, but you’ll encounter some problems along the way.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Fill your belly, fill your mind, and beat the heat, all at once. Learn about the knights and dames of the Medieval period with a visit to the arena. You’ll dine on traditional Medieval fare like giant turkey legs while you watch the knights duel in the arena or joust on horseback. You’ll also be able to choose a vegetarian option. There’s no history book lesson to be had, but you’ll be immersed in the history and culture of the time for an unforgettable memory!
