Long Weekend in Myrtle Beach? 6 Must-Do's

Where did the summer go?


It seems like just yesterday we were set for Memorial Day and the official kickoff to summer. Rather than pine for days past, we’re committed to thinking ahead. To Labor Day.


What could you do on a long weekend on the Grand Strand?

1. Spend Time on the Beach

With 60 miles of beach to explore, the Grand Strand is a huge attraction for a Myrtle Beach Getaway. Relax, frolic, or seek thrills on the water and on the shore. You’ll find areas for seclusion and many others with quick access to a bar, restaurant, or shop. Have some fun in the sun, first and foremost. Savor the rest of summer!

3. Watch the Original Motown Tribute Show

The GTS Theatre has delighted audiences with this Motor City Musical, prompting other venues to add their own. See the original show celebrating 60 years of soul music with top-notch performers. It’s a journey through the history of a genre that shattered social barriers and transformed popular culture.


4. Take a Wakeboarding Adventure

See the Waccamaw River as you never have, with a staff of U.S. Coast Guard personnel. You and as many as six guests can ride wakeboards, which are like surfboards a boat pulls along. For beginners and experts, a wakeboard ride with Island Adventures Watersports.

5. Venture to Greg Norman’s Grille for Dinner

Dine on steak by the waterfront in this spacious restaurant owned by the iconic Australian golfer. Bring the whole family for a tremendous happy hour, the perfect cap to a beautiful Myrtle Beach summer. Share Broiled Escargot, Hot Crab Dip, and an unforgettable Calamari appetizer.

6. Cast a Line, One Last Time

Send summer off with a relaxing morning of offshore fishing at the historic Cherry Grove Pier. Commonly, large whiting hit abundantly in September, as well as croakers and spadefish. It’s a fun place to fish, but also just a fantastic place to be.
