Top Six Cheap and Free Things to do in Myrtle Beach

Imagine getting to the end of your next Myrtle Beach vacation and arriving home with a fresh tan, some sand in your shoes and cash left in your bank account! It can happen, you just need to make sure to plan to make room for a few cheap and free things to do in Myrtle Beach. And the great thing is, many of the free things to do here are still super fun!

Here’s a quick list of our favorites:

1. The Beach
OK, this may be the “no duh” item on the list, but it bears repeating: The Grand Strand includes approximately 60 miles of unspoiled, pristine beaches. Lounge in the sand, read a book, splash and play. All for free! Well, you’ll probably have to pay for sunscreen, but you get the picture.

2. Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum
Looking for a little culture? Give this art museum a visit—some of the latest exhibits have included exhibits of golf in art and a look at animation that kids and adults both found fascinating. And best yet, admission is free (though donations are graciously accepted).

Location: 3100 South Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach

3. The Boardwalk
We won’t pretend there aren’t going to be temptations on the boardwalk, from restaurants to souvenirs, but that doesn’t mean those with self-control can’t have a good time—for free. Stroll the Boardwalk, enjoy the views and the ocean breezes, and of course the people watching!

4. The Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk
Speaking of great places to go for a walk and enjoy the view: head a little bit south of town and check out the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk—especially during high tide. It’s such a picturesque little town, you’ll love looking at the fishing boats, sculptures and of course, Goat Island.

5. Walk a Pier
Some of the piers in the area are free to walk, but many charge a small fee, usually about $2. Even if you have to pay a couple of bucks, it’s a classic beach past-time that we really recommend. You can often see dolphins swimming off the pier, and you can also watch fishermen reel in the catch of the day.

6. Take Advantage of Free Entertainment
All summer long, there are plenty of fun and free entertainment opportunities for families! There’s Ocean Boulevard’s Hot Summer Nights, which serves up free entertainment every night throughout the summer; Market Common’s free movies in the park on Wednesday nights; free entertainment on the outdoor stages at Broadway at the Beach; as well as free fireworks throughout the summer.

All of these fun and free things to do in Myrtle Beach are great ways to make your stay at Long Bay Resort the most fun—and affordable—Myrtle Beach family vacation ever!
