Morning Till Eve: How to Spend a Day at Bay View Resort

When you’re in Myrtle Beach, it’s easy to load up a day with things to do.


When you’re at Bay View, it’s easy to find tons of fun activities, right around your resort. To prove it, we compiled this day-in-the-life snapshot. We could have done a whole week’s worth.


But, we wanted to leave a little of that fun up to you. But first …

Tips for Planning Your Day on Vacation

You have plans. BIG plans. Here’s how to get to it all without missing the good stuff. Or, making it feel like you’ve traded in your work routine for something as rigid on a getaway!

  1. Plan time for nothing

Let unscripted downtime have a good chunk of real estate on your agenda. You’re here to relax, after all.

  1. Establish a daily budget

Not all vacation days are the same. A day at Family Kingdom Amusement Park will cost more than a day relaxing at the resort.

  1. Be ready

Bring cash and cards. Wear comfortable shoes and have a change of clothes handy. Rain (or mustard!) could force a wardrobe change.

Catch the Sunrise off the Balcony

There’s nothing quite like seeing the sunrise over the Atlantic. Talk about a moment of gratitude, for the world we live in, and the chance to be on the Grand Strand. Every sunrise promises to be different than the last, too.


Try this

Check time and date for sunrise times. Get up 10-20 minutes before and watch the colors amaze you.

Coffee from Starbucks

What a perk: You can leave your room and hit Starbucks, on-site. Enjoy your favorite drink and breakfast there or take it on the Boardwalk. Either way, this is looking like a stellar morning.


Try this

Set out a blanket and watch the waves with your coffee and Danish.


Walk Along the Boardwalk

It’s the ultimate Myrtle Beach experience: A stroll on a 1.2-mile boardwalk with piers at either end. Enjoy SO much food, fun, shopping, photo ops, chance to relax, chances to engage, and more.


Try this

Have a ride on SkyWheel. There’s no better way to see Myrtle Beach from a perspective you don’t get every day.

Beach Time!

It’s what you came to the Grand Strand for, right? Don’t forget sunscreen, because even the spring sun can get you. Expect sunny skies and highs in the mid-60s. Depending on where you’re from, that’s short-sleeved weather at least. (We know some folks who think it’s swimming weather, too!)


Try this

If you meditate (or want to), sit for 5 minutes on a sand dune and close your eyes. Record the sounds of the ocean as you do, and play it back for a little Myrtle Beach peace at home.

Back to the Room to Rest

Don’t forget the luxurious accommodations that await you at Bay View Resort. There’s a room for every want, all decorated and designed for your comfort and pleasure. Have a nap, dive into that beach read, or engage in a card game while you relax.


Try this

Bring a journal or sketchbook. Record some of your favorite moments and scenes from your getaway.

Happy Hour Drink Along the Boardwalk

Stop into 8th Avenue Tiki Bar & Grill for an island-vibe escape. They take happy hour to the literal meaning. That means tons of food choices, amazing views, and friendly staff. There’s always a game on, good things to eat, and friendly people around.


Try this

Get the Jumbo Buffalo Shrimp, Poor House Burger, and a Beach Blanket Bingo cocktail.

Shopping for Souvenirs Along the Boardwalk

Any retail therapy has to begin or end at the iconic Gay Dolphin Gift Cove. This multi-level shop is a treasure trove of all things Myrtle, from shells to home goods to T-shirts. Please your sweet tooth — or head full of them! — in the candy wonderland known as I Love Sugar.


Try this

Hit the LandShark Surf Shack for some cool gear and beach duds, on your way to … dinner.

Dinner at LandShark Bar & Grill

Join the beach party at LandShark, with delicious American fare and tropical drinks. You’re in for a tasty dinner on the oceanfront, right on the famous Myrtle Beach boardwalk. You can’t beat the location or the atmosphere.


Try this

Taco Nachos are a great way to start. Their Seafood Lettuce Wraps and BBQ Ribs are outstanding. You can’t go wrong with the LandShark Burger or Fried Cod Sandwich, either. Save room for Key Lime Pie!
