Done with Dinner? Do These Things Next in Myrtle Beach

So, you’ve polished off your last plate at the Calabash seafood buffet. Good stuff. This is what you love about a vacation to Myrtle Beach, right?


You could stumble back to your comfy bed at Ocean Reef Resort and slip into a fried-food, happy coma.


Or, you could sample more of the good stuff the Grand Strand has to offer. Here are a few suggestions for what to do after dinner with your family here.

1. Mini Golf

Myrtle Beach is a well-known golfer’s paradise, but it isn’t limited to the long-game duffers. It takes mad skill to sink a putt — through a windmill or a pirate ship, after all. Mini-golf is the little-known gem of the Grand Strand, and here’s where to play:


CAPTAIN HOOK’S ADVENTURE GOLF: You’ll have a great family outing with two courses.


ATLANTICUS MINOTAUR GOLF: Test your skills on one of two tiki-themed layouts.

This Grand Strand marvel will reopen in May, providing an enjoyable ride with a view. It’s a thrilling experience, whether you take the normal ride or opt for the VIP treatment. SkyWheel will reopen for business in May after an overhaul!

3. Get Ice Cream

It’s tough to beat a classic cone or special sundae after dinner. Did you know ice cream contains vitamins and provides energy, too? Your body needs it after a warm day in Myrtle Beach. Here’s where to get some:


KIRK’S 1890 ICE CREAM PARLOR: Visit them at 2500 North Kings Highway — they don’t skimp on the size of their scoops!


MAD MYRTLE’S ICE CREAMERY: It’s a delightful throwback to simpler times.

4. Take a Moonlit Walk on the Beach

Besides being romantic, a coastal stroll after dinner can lower your blood pressure. It’ll improve blood sugar management, digestion, heart health, weight loss, and more. And the Grand Strand is gorgeous on a moonlit night.

5. Play Board Games on the Balcony

What a way to get the family together and strengthen that bond with friendly competition. We could talk about the benefits for cognitive skills and memory formation. But family time in a beautiful place can set up a lifetime of memories, too.

6. Watch a Movie

Movie night on vacation can be even more special than those spent at home, for families of any size. Pick a favorite on a streaming service, or peruse the channels available at your resort. When you stay at Ocean Reef Resort, you have a big-screen TV and lots of room for everyone.
