Beach and Boogie Music is king at the Beach Clubs like Fat Harold's Beach Club in Ocean Drive. This thumping, rhythmic music will have you dancing in your seat, if you're not up doing the "Shag," the official dance of South Carolina. Notoriously described as "the jitterbug on Valium," the Shag is fun to watch and even more fun to try.
Myrtle Beach has its own baseball team, the Pelicans , a Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. The games are held at BB&T Coastal Field, a relatively small stadium from which you can clearly see all the action on the field. Silly games and contests held in between innings and Splash, the mascot, make going to the games a fun time for all ages.
Myrtle Beach has just about any kind of entertainment you can think of, such as Pirates Voyage, Broadway at the Beach, Tiger Preservation, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament , the IMAX Discovery Theatre , Planet Hollywood , Hard Rock Cafe , Ripley's Aquarium , water parks, nightclubs and shopping galore. There are also many annual festivals that bring visitors back year after year. As they say, "If you're bored in Myrtle Beach, it's your own fault."
Myrtle Beach is considered the number one golf destination in the United States, but those who have visited the 'Grand Strand' know that is also a premier vacation destination. With its beautiful beaches and countless attractions, everyone can find something to keep them occupied.
Myrtle Beach's Grand Strand consists of a string of small communities that stretches from Little River on the North Carolina border to Georgetown. Its 60 miles of coastline have wide, sandy beaches for swimming, sunbathing and building sand castles; waters full of fish for pier or deep sea fishing and waves for surfing. For the fishing and boating enthusiast, the Intercoastal Waterway meanders through Myrtle Beach and offers even more opportunities for a day on the water.
North Myrtle Beach consists of the four communities of Cherry Grove, Ocean Drive, Crescent Beach and Windy Hill where Barefoot Landing has become a popular shopping, eating, and entertainment spot.
