For an unforgettable family camping trip, head to the seaside town of Myrtle Beach. There's so much to do here that there is definitely something for everyone ¿ from the beachgoer to the thrill seeker to the nightlife lover. Your whole family will find something they enjoy at Myrtle Beach! Hitch up your fifth wheel trailer or hop in your motorhome, and head to the beach.
With miles of gorgeous coastline, the Myrtle Beach area is an excellent place for frolicking in the sand. Take the kids out for building sandcastles, Frisbee or volleyball in the sand, and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean ¿ just be sure to keep a close eye on them, as there are not always lifeguards on duty.
There are several RV parks you can choose that are just a short walk from the beach so you can make the most of your family RV trip.
Gaming and Adventures
For the ones in the family who need more action than simply relaxing on the beach, Myrtle Beach has plenty to satisfy them too. Visit Ripley's Believe It or Not or catch a show at the House of Blues of Alabama Theater. On Highway 17, just a few blocks back from Ocean Boulevard, you'll find a variety of themed putt-putt golf courses, such as pirates and dinosaur themes, to try your hand at as well. There are also a number of arcades where the whole family can have fun playing skeeball, old-fashioned electronic baseball, and lots more.
Dining and Nightlife
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, especially at the beach! You'll find many pancake houses offering breakfast until early afternoon, so be sure to experience this deliciousness at least once on your trip. For other meals, there are lots of options. You'll of course find fantastic seafood nearly everywhere you go: try one of the many seafood buffets for all-you-can-eat options and taste a little of everything.
For fun in the evenings, visit the famous Bowery, where the country band Alabama got their start, or visit Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville for something a little different. There are also multiple local establishments along the strip to stop in and have a drink.
Shopping is a main attraction at Myrtle Beach, and there are so many places to do it! Check out the Tanger Outlets to find the best deals, visit Coastal Grand Mall for a traditional mall experience, or stroll the unique shops at Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach. Make sure you stop at the Gay Dolphin Gift Cove on Ocean Boulevard for a unique experience as well.
