While the Myrtle Beach area might be best known for its in-ocean and on-beach activities, the Grand Strand also offers plenty of options for having a blast indoors when the weather outside doesn’t lend itself to fun in the sun. And few leisure activities are as tried and true for entertaining the whole family as bowling.

So, the next time you and your vacation crew are looking for a way to spend a rainy day during your getaway at Ocean Reef Resort, roll on over to one of these three top Myrtle Beach-area bowling destinations:

710 – This North Myrtle Beach destination serves as a bowling alley, restaurant, bar and entertainment venue, all in one spot. For those looking to bowl, 710 offers 14 standard lanes, plus six boutique lanes with custom surfaces and XTreme LED lighting. Beyond the lanes, the competition can continue with the long list of additional gaming options available in-house – including bocce, darts, ping-pong, cornhole and a range of board games (think chess, Scrabble, backgammon, giant Jenga and the like). The establishment’s extensive menu features traditional bar-food options like burgers, wings and sandwiches, as well as a number of comfort-food options such as mac & cheese, flatbread pizzas, and chicken & waffles.

Myrtle Beach Bowl – Let the good times roll at this family-friendly bowling alley with a large arcade, a lounge and a full snack bar. Myrtle Beach Bowl, as the name implies, offers loads of lanes where you and your crew can set your sights on the pins and get some friendly competition going. The Toy Box Arcade features state-of-the-art video games like Fruit Ninja and Jurassic Park, as well as classics like Skee-Ball that allow players to collect tickets and earn prizes. And when the gang gets hungry, you can head to the full snack bar, which serves a range of appetizers and salads, a long list of entrees that includes hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and wings, and a selection of sweet treats for dessert (or just an in-game indulgence).

Surfside Bowl – This bowling hot spot in Surfside Beach features 32 professional-grade lanes where your vacation crew can do its best to record a few strikes and spares. For additional entertainment, TV projectors and LCD TVs put the biggest sporting events on equally big screens, and Surfside Bowl’s arcade features 30 video and prize games, as well as a black light-illuminated “Balladium” where competitors can shoot foam balls out of cannons to take out 3-D props. The grill offers burgers, pizzas, calzones and more to keep you covered when hunger strikes, and the in-house bar pours a wide selection of brews and mixed drinks.
