There is no doubt that if you and your family are traveling to Myrtle Beach in the summer, you’re here to soak up the sun on our beachfront property at Monterey Bay Suites. But what other things are there to do? We’ve put together a few recommendations of things to do in Myrtle Beach in August that we are sure will add some fun to your stay!
Myrtle Beach is one of the top golf destinations in the U.S., and lucky for you some of the best golf courses are just right down the road from Monterey Bay. Schedule a tee time for Dad or take the whole family – kids play free!
If you need to beat the heat or get the kids out of the suite try one of these Myrtle Beach Watersports! Cool down with a ride on the Banana Boat or rent a pair of jet skis. If you’re feeling really adventurous get up in the air in a parasail! There are also plenty of other boat tours around Myrtle Beach for the whole family to enjoy.
Brookgreen Gardens offers a display of color and blooms for the whole family to enjoy while visiting the property. From its Lowcountry Zoo to its sculpture gallery, there’s plenty to keep you busy here.
If you’re looking for something even more unique to do during August, check out the Bruce Munro: Southern Light exhibit held at Brookgreen Gardens. At the Southern Light exhibit, your evening will be all lit-up with lights displays and sculptures all around!
One of the best things about visiting Myrtle Beach in the summer is the amazing displays of fireworks every night. You can enjoy dinner at one of the many restaurants at Broadway at the Beach and then stick around with the kids to watch the sky light up. Or head on up to Barefoot Landing for their colorful nighttime display!
There are a few farmer’s markets in the Grand Strand that are open every weekend and filled with locally grown goodness, baked treats, and artisanal products!
The Conway Farmer’s Market is located on the Conway Riverwalk and opens every Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm through October.
