Celebrate the one you call Dad and treat him to a well-deserved vacation. The year-round warm weather makes South Carolina a top choice for many Dads and vacationers. Pack your bags and zero in on Myrtle Beach for plenty of Father’s Day oceanside fun. There are a variety of things to do in Myrtle Beach for Father’s Day and attractions for Dad to enjoy on his own retreat or with the ones that call him Dad.


There are plenty of things to do in Myrtle Beach for Father’s Day Dad during a beach vacation, but you’ll no doubt find yourself on the sand nearly every day. Change up the exercise routine with a walk or run for some exercise along the shore. Get some sun or pack a picnic and your swimsuit for a day at the beach. The waters of the Atlantic may still be a bit chilly for a swim. Give Dad an adrenaline rush with jet skis or parasailing!

Boardwalk & Promenade

The 1.2-mile boardwalk is a beautiful oceanfront boardwalk in Myrtle Beach. You and Dad will enjoy access to breathtaking beachfront as well as many of the activities and attractions the town is known for. Ride the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, then give Dad the chance to be a kid again in the carnival atmosphere, or treat him to restaurants, shops, bars, and more.

Grand Strand

Myrtle Beach is just a small part, albeit the largest city, of the over 60 miles of beach that makes up South Carolina’s “Grand Strand.” The area stretches from Little River to Winyah Bay, with the main town being Myrtle Beach. If you and Dad want to see a little more of the NE South Carolina coast, a tour up and down the strand is the must-do way to get it done.

Hollywood Wax Museum

Some Dads wish they could get up close to their favorite celebrity. While it may not be them “in the flesh” the models at the museum will leave you doing a double take! Tour the museum and get close to some of your favorite icons. Take silly selfies or pics of Dad posing next to entertainers, race car drivers, actors, politicians, and other celebs. Learn more about them, like their pet-peeves, accomplishments, pets, families, and other personal details.

Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum

Pinball is a game enjoyed by many, and that may include the Dad in your life. The museum is dedicated to the fun arcade game Dad grew up with. 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.


Treat Dad to a round or two in the “Golf Capital of the World.” Myrtle Beach has over 60 courses where he can test his skills. Courses are scattered throughout North, Central, and South Myrtle Beach. Play like the pros at TPC Myrtle Beach in South Myrtle Beach. Centralize all your play at the “Barefoot” courses of Central Myrtle Beach or follow the “Sea Trail” in Northern Myrtle Beach. With over 60 courses, we have other recommendations, too. Families with young children will love a challenging, fun time at a mini golf course.

For those who want to beat the heat of daytime golfing, wait until the sun sets and the lights go on. Select course offer night golfing at short par 4 and par 3 executive courses.


Climb over 20 stories above the waves of the Atlantic without taking a single step yourself! Take a seat next to Dad in one of the Ferris wheel’s 42 climate-controlled gondolas – a welcome relief from the Father’s Day weekend heat, then prepare for as close to a bird’s eye view of the area as possible. The wheel is open 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily.

Springmaid Pier

The pier is located within the Doubletree Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort, but the public is welcome. It is the longest pier in Myrtle Beach, at 1,060 feet. If Dad’s an angler, he’ll want to see what’s biting, after making a supply stop for all they need at the pier store, Fishtails.

After a productive day, grab a bite at the restaurant, the Southern Tides Bar & Grill. Walking passes are $3/person and children under 5 are free. A single-day fishing pass is $12/person plus tax, and a three-day pass is $400 plus tax. Rod rentals are $15 per use, and you will have to return them each time you leave the pier. The pier is wheelchair accessible, and free public parking is available in a lot across the street as well as on the street.
