Family-Friendly Fun
There’s still time before school starts to browse the shops of Barefoot Landing, roam among the toothy denizens of Alligator Adventure reptile zoo or have a wild dinner adventure at Pirates’ Voyage. Let the kids hoot and holler on old fashioned rides like the log flume and steel roller coaster at Family Kingdom Amusement Park, or take a walk through a reef alive with sharks and stingrays at Ripley’s Aquarium. Stroll the boardwalk, ride the giant Ferris wheel stand in awe of dazzling fireworks over the sea.

Fantastic Festivals
An exciting calendar of festivals and family-friendly events continues through August and September on Myrtle Beach’s lively boardwalk. Fantastic, free and perfect for all ages, Hot Summer Nights continues through most of September, featuring concerts, kids’ carnival, street musicians and fireworks. Grab some great grub, browse local arts and crafts or enter the bar-b-Que competition at the Beach, Boogie and BBQ Festival, held every Labor Day weekend. September’s colorful Aynor Harvest Hoe-Down Festival in nearby Aynor offers loads of musical entertainment, arts, crafts, food and a fantastic street dance.

Magic and Music
The whole family can enjoy lively summer nights all around Myrtle Beach throughout August and September. On Thursdays through the end of September, downtown North Myrtle Beach lights up with the Music on Main Concert Series, a live band extravaganza orchestrated by area restaurants. Bring the family down to dance, shop or just kick back and listen to some tunes.
