Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Things to Do:

Myrtle Beach SkyWheel

The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel has proudly been around for people of all ages since May 2011. It’s all about letting you see a chunk of the city from way high up (187 feet!). If heights are no problem, get on this slow-moving Ferris wheel and relax the evening away. You’ll love the view of the water and the city itself.

Nightmare Haunted House 

Open Friday through Sunday (12pm-9pm), this spooky attraction is for the braver souls out there who don’t mind a few zombies and other undead creatures getting up close and personal. The attraction seeks to emulate the feel of being in a real haunted house, with frightening sounds, statues, moving creatures, and more. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, this place will give it to you!

Fun Plaza Family Fun Center

Fun Plaza is a video arcade open 10am-10pm daily. They have both an indoor and outdoor area, with games spread across each section to offer a little something for everyone. There is plenty of room to run around and tons of games to play. People love shooting the basketballs through the hoops to try and earn tickets for a prize. You’ll find all your classic arcade games that both young and old players are sure to enjoy.   

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not 

Based on the TV show and book series, this modern attraction is all about letting you see all kinds of tricks and stunts in its two-story auditorium. You will experience some of the weirdest and most unexplainable acts, here and here alone, and you might even rub your eyes in wonderment, asking, “How’d they do that?” The answer, of course, will usually remain a secret, as half the fun lies in the mystery. At Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, you’ll get a chance to try some of these tricks on your own, too, as it’s all open from 10am-9pm daily.

The Bowery

Open 11am to 2pm daily, The Bowery lets you take out or dine on the spot. “Ya’ can’t beat fun!” is one of their main catchphrases, and this eatery remains one of the most fun around. It’s truly a “get loose and lose yourself” vibe offered here, so if you’re a social party animal, you’re bound to like The Bowery! When you get hungry, try The Eighth Wonder, one of the top Angus burgers in the city. They prep it with a fresh grilled patty and fries or onion rings.  

Moe Moons

Moe Moons opens 12pm-8pm daily but closes at 10pm on Friday and Saturday, letting you linger for just a little longer on those weekend nights. If you’ve had a rough week, then this is the place to go to cool off for a bit, it’s got that ‘chill vibe’ that so many are after. Here at Moe Moons, you can simply sit back and sink your teeth into some chicken tender bites, fried pickles, mac and cheese, or anything else your country-food-loving heart desires. Try their House Wings, too!

Myrtle Beach Shopping on The Boardwalk

I Love Sugar 

Open 9am to 11pm daily (‘till midnight on Friday and Saturday), I Love Sugar is a “home sweet home” for anyone with a sweet tooth. This modern candy store with a feel of a classic, Willy Wonka old-style candy shop, is here to please one and all with its many gummy selections (bears, worms, wheels, burgers, hot dogs, sharks, and more). If you have a certain item in real life that you’d like to eat in gummy form, the staff here can try to find the closest fit (or in some cases, custom-make you something!). 

Surfs Up Beach Shop

Open at varying hours (changing with seasons or holidays), Surfs Up Beach Shop is perhaps the most popular swimwear store in all of Myrtle Beach. Here, you can find all kinds of nifty, humorous apparel for going out and about on the streets. If you like to draw attention to yourself, your partner, or your crew, then you have to buy a t-shirt, mug, hat, beanie, flip flops, or something else from the Surfs Up Beach Shop. They even sell couples’ shirts or other matching apparel if you’re looking for a unique present or something to wear while getting your photos taken.

Gay Dolphin Gift Cove 

Open 9:30am-6:30pm daily, the Gay Dolphin Gift Cove is known by many as the “Legendary Gift Shop of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk,” and there’s no question why. First, it’s got quite a history of its own. It started out as the smallest gift shop around, but it became the largest over time. It is now the leader in size and won’t let you forget it! One quick walk inside here, and you could get lost. This shop is over 70 years old and offers virtually any souvenir or piece of beach equipment you might be looking for. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around and find the perfect item to take home with you.
