Blessed with an uninterrupted arc of beautiful beaches, and amped up with more than enough entertainment options, Myrtle Beach really is the perfect place to let loose—or just kick back and relax.
When staying at Sheraton Broadway Plantation, it’s hard to narrow down the best things to do in a destination so jam-packed with fun, but that can also be such a great place to unwind, but we’ll try. Here are some of our favorite activities for the perfect Myrtle Beach getaway.
Broadway at the Beach
Broadway at the Beach is THE place in Myrtle Beach to be for entertainment, nightlife, dining, and shopping. The best part is that it’s located just a few steps from your villa door. Explore your favorite shops and specialty boutiques throughout the themed areas of this entertainment superplex. Then enjoy marquee restaurants like Hard Rock Café and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville. And if you’re still up for more, Broadway at the Beach has exciting clubs to keep the fun going into the night.
Conveniently located within Broadway at the Beach, the majestic 2,600-seat Palace Theatre plays host to some of the best live shows, Broadway theater productions and musicals going. If you’ve ever been to a Legends in Concert show before, you know why it’s so popular. From Michael Jackson to Alan Jackson; Lionel Ritchie to Little Richard, where else can you see the very best celebrity look-a-likes from around the country perform in pitch-perfect style? For an exciting evening of family fun, jousting, feasting, and cheering, Medieval Times is a must. And, of course, the highly acclaimed Carolina Opry showcases the best in not only country, but pop, gospel, Broadway and jazz.
The Grand Strand
When it comes down to it, it’s really all about the beach. Set along the famous Grand Strand—the uninterrupted stretch of Atlantic coast more than 60 miles long—Myrtle Beach is a classic beach town. Stroll down the winding, scenic beachside boardwalk. Stop for ice cream and enjoy the ever-popular vacation activity of people-watching. For unmatched panoramic views of the Atlantic and Myrtle Beach itself, hop aboard the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, one of the tallest Ferris/observation wheels in North America. Or for family thrills, pay a visit to Family Kingdom and Splashes Oceanfront Water Park, side-by-side theme parks just off the boardwalk.
With nearly 100 different golf courses, (many public) with options for any level of challenge, Myrtle Beach has earned its nickname as “The Golf Capital of the World.” And that’s not even counting all the mini golf courses that also abound (for the kids not quite ready to swing a driver).
