Tips to Make Your End-Of-Summer Beach Trip Rock

One last summer jaunt is in high demand on the Grand Strand.

Will you get to the coast once more this season? If so, will you make the most of it? It’s impossible to do it all, so we narrowed the list to 10 things you should do at the beach before summer ends.

Let’s do this.

Tips to Make Your End-Of-Summer Beach Trip Rock

Don’t waste a second at the wrong beach, with the wrong bag, or sunburned! Here’s a little advice ahead of that late summer trip.

 

1.) Choose the right resort

What experience are you after? For lively crowds, you’ll want to look at a resort in the middle of it all, such as Bay View Resort.

 

2.) Bring the bags

A big rolling suitcase is perfect for all your clothes. Also, bring a backpack for a day out and about and a fanny pack for hikes. And a beach bag is a must.

 

3.) Remember the sunscreen

The sun doesn’t stop shining in late summer. Avoid a late-summer sunburn with the same regiment you used all season. SPF 30+ is best for beach time.

Can You Do 2 of These 10 Things Before the End of Summer?

The implication is that you could do way more than two. But that’s a start.

1. Sunrise at the Beach

Watch the shore come alive with the colors of a coastal sunrise. Check here to find sunrise times for the day you’re going, and plan to be out at least 20 minutes before. Those brilliant colors start happening then.

 

RECOMMENDED

At Bay View Resort, choose an oceanview room. Take in one sunrise on high, then another from the beach, steps from your resort. Repeat for the rest of your stay.

2. Walk the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Take a lazy stroll on the most nostalgic mile on the Grand Strand, from the 14th Avenue Pie to the Second Avenue Pier. Go on a ride on the iconic SkyWheel for a view of Myrtle Beach you can’t get any other way. Share Taco Nachos with your party at the nearby Landshark Bar & Grill.

 

RECOMMENDED

No boardwalk visit is complete without a spin around the legendary Gay Dolphin Gift Cove. Peruse 26,000 square feet, on seven levels, of countless beach treasures.

5. Take a Boat Tour at the Marshwalk

Dress in something comfy and breezy for spectacular views of the Marshwalk. Book a day or evening tour with VisitMurrellsInlet.com for music, food, views, and a fun time for everyone. The Murrells Inlet Sunset Cruise is a popular way to unwind after a fun day at the beach.

 

RECOMMENDED

Look into a private sunset cruise. Prices are reasonable, and what a great way to spend an evening with your group.

6. Shop at Market Common | 4017 Deville Street

Dress to impress — but with sensible shoes for shopping, of course. Market Common is a beautiful complex of entertainment and shopping for days. You can shop, eat, play, and even live here.

 

RECOMMENDED

Shop the amazing and diverse variety of things at Anthropologie. Follow up with a craft beer and Tap Two lunch at The Brass Tap.

7. Experience Broadway at the Beach | 1325 Celebrity Circle

It’s always a great time when you visit the variety of shops and restaurants here. Broadway at the Beach has rides too, and so much fun you’ll need two days to get to it all. Everyone there is chill and having a good time.

 

RECOMMENDED

Load up on your favorite sports teams’ gear at the Man Cave Store, and grab a plate of Fish & Chips at American Tap House. Then take on the challenge ahead at Backstage Escape Games.

8. Watch Fireworks

Every weekend is a great candidate for seeing pyrotechnics on the Grand Strand. That’s because fireworks here aren’t only a July 4 and Dec. 31 thing. Many places in Myrtle Beach host weekly displays.

 

RECOMMENDED

See fireworks every Tuesday and Friday at Broadway at the Beach.

9. Catch a Pelicans Game

The moment you pass the threshold at TicketReturn.com Field, you’re a fan of the home team. You’re in for a major-league experience in a minor-league ballpark. No matter where you’re from, it won’t take but an inning or two to turn you into a Myrtle Beach Pelicans fan.

 

RECOMMENDED

Grab a lid before you head to the beach, or at the Pelicans team store at the ballpark. They have one of the coolest logos in sports.

10. Eat Seafood

There’s a seafood joint around the bend, no matter where you are on the Grand Strand. Calabash seafood originated in the area, fish deep-fried to crispy perfection. The area has plenty of buffet options and restaurants where you can order fresh seafood by the plate.

 

RECOMMENDED

Dinner at Captain Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood Buffet is fantastic. For an upscale experience, consider Hook & Barrel. It features a unique atmosphere, a full bar, and an amazing menu. Order a Seafood Tower for the table. It’s a medley of the chef’s selection of fresh seafood.
