No trip to Myrtle Beach is complete without a visit to the area's top attractions, and Bay View Resort has your tickets and tips to save big bucks during your family vacation. With our Sun Fun Rewards program, Bay View guests get free passes to some of the most popular attractions in town just for staying with us. And our downtown location is convenient to some of the best deals along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and beyond. Here are five helpful tips to save hundreds of dollars during your stay:

Family Kingdom/Splashes: Located a short walk from Bay View, this amusement park/water park differs from similar attractions in that it has no admission charge. Wristbands are available for those who want to ride the roller coasters, go-carts, waterslides and thrill rides, but those who prefer to keep their feet on their ground can tag along for free. That's great news for families with small children, parents or grandparents who might not want to ride but don't want to miss out on the fun. All-day-admission wristbands to both the waterpark and amusement park are available so the kids can spend all day on the slides and all night on the rides for a discounted price.

Fun Warehouse: What do you do on a rainy day with a room full of kids who are ready to play? Let them burn off some energy while having a great time at the Fun Warehouse in nearby Surfside Beach. This entertainment multiplex is like three indoor playgrounds in one, with a spacious skating rink, a two-story laser tag room, and a modern arcade loaded with high-tech video games and old-school carnival games. Best of all, your Sun Fun Rewards package includes one complimentary three activities pass to Fun Warehouse, which offers tickets and all-day wristbands that include the cost of food, games and other activities.

Miniature Golf: Myrtle Beach is best known for its championship golf, but the Grand Strand is a hot spot for the putt-putt variety of golf as well. Dozens of miniature golf courses are located along the 60-mile stretch of coast that surrounds the Sun Fun Capital, with many offering all-day passes for just a few dollars more than a single round. Bay View guests can save even more money thanks to their Sun Fun Rewards package, which includes one complimentary Paradise Super Passport for unlimited putt-putt play at Cancun Lagoon and Mutiny Bay.

Myrtle Waves: South Carolina's largest waterpark also offers some of the area's best deals for those seeking relief from the summer heat. Featuring dozens of waterslides, speed chutes and other aquatic rides for the thrill-seekers, Myrtle Waves also has a wave pool, a lazy river and splash-pad playgrounds to keep the whole family happy. Myrtle Waves offers half-priced admission after 4 p.m., so you and your crew can get in some quality water park time without spending the whole day and more money. Bay View guests receive one complimentary adult admission, saving your group even more money on a splashing good time.

North Myrtle Beach: If your family wants to venture off to the North End, Bay View has you covered. Your Sun Fun Rewards package has one free ticket to go sailing on the high seas aboard Blackbeard's Pirate Cruise, which allows the little ones to serve as the ship's crew and race against pirates to find hidden treasure. Guests should also check out The House of Blues, a large concert hall where you can listen to featured bands and artists. It's also free to roam Barefoot Landing, although you are likely to get lured into one of its many shops and restaurants for lunch or dinner.

After a fun-filled, money-saving day at Myrtle Beach’s best attractions, return to Myrtle Beach’s favorite oceanfront resort at Bay View. We’ve got your ticket to good times both on and off the resort property.
