Myrtle Beach is known as the mini-golf capital of the world with mini-golf courses scattered all over the Grand Strand. But even the locals know that the best place to play a round is at Mt. Atlanticus Minotaur Golf! Ascend as you putt-putt your way up Mt. Atlanticus on one of two lush courses. Get an All-Day Play pass, $14 for adults and $12 for kids and play all day long until 4 pm.
