No Matter What the Weather Brings, Fun Awaits on the Grand Strand

No Matter What the Weather Brings, Fun Awaits on the Grand Strand

Among the perks of visiting a world-class family vacation destination like Myrtle Beach is the wide array of things to do. Whether it’s soaking in nature’s beauty, treating yourself to a delicious meal, exploring a museum or taking in the thrills of an amusement park, vacation crews can rest assured that visitors of all interests and ages can find a way to have a good time here. And even when the weather prevents outdoor recreation, there are plenty of family-friendly activities to explore indoors when vacationing on the Grand Strand.

Next time the South Carolina weather takes a turn for the worse during your Long Bay Resort getaway, keeping you and your crew off the backyard beach, consider one of these great ways to have a great time despite the wet weather outside:

Hollywood Wax Museum — Located at Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach (and an easy, 10-minute drive from Long Bay Resort), this attraction lets you get up close and personal with some of the silver screen’s biggest stars — or their amazing likenesses, anyway. Other head-turning humanlike wax figures include top sports figures, musical icons, royalty and more, all perfect for selfie-taking. While you’re there, check out Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors and the Outbreak experience. Learn more at hollywoodwaxmyrtlebeach.com.

Rockin’ Jump — Found about 9 minutes south of Long Bay Resort on North Oak Street, this trampoline park is a perfect destination for those looking to burn off some energy indoors. Attractions such as the Ninja Challenge obstacle course, the Slam Dunk Zone basketball court, the Vertical Ops rock-climbing wall and the X-Beam jousting pit will have the youngsters in your party bouncing off the walls. Other fun areas include the air-filled Stunt Bag for safe flipping and jumping, as well as the Dodgeball Arena and the Open Jump Arena. An in-house pizza parlor allows visitors to grab a bite to eat when they’re not jumping for joy. Visit rockinjump.com to learn more.

810 Billiards & Bowling  — This gaming mecca at The Market Common will have the competitive types in your crew ready for the next frame, match, game or round). Opportunities to face off here include not only the bowling lanes and billiards tables, but also foosball, darts, board games, cornhole and more. When hunger strikes, a full menu of entrees, snacks and appetizers is available (think burgers, sliders, flatbread pizzas, salads and the like), and the bar serves a wide selection of cocktails, craft beers and wines. When you’re ready to get your game on, visit 810bowling.com to learn more.

After beating the wet weather with a fun day indoors at one of these popular attractions, guests at Long Bay Resort can return to their comfortable accommodations and wide range of on-site amenities to rest up for another exciting day on the Grand Strand.
