102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

09. Playing at the Piers

Aside from the world-class views and recreational fishing, the many Myrtle Beach piers also offer a variety of dining and entertainment options.

From simple hot dog stands to full service restaurants, vacationers can find something to suit every appetite.

Many of the piers also offer live entertainment several nights each week during the summer months.  Open air rooftop bars, and covered dance floors keep the atmosphere lively after the sun goes down featuring smaller acoustic acts and high energy dance and rock ‘n’ roll bands.

Younger vacationers taking a break from the sun and surf may enjoy endless varieties of ice cream and frozen treats without ever leaving the oceanfront.

Myrtle Beach area piers such as Garden City and Apache also feature modern arcades filled with the latest video games. Classic games of skill such as Skee Ball may also be found, and players can redeem reward tickets at the gift shop for a memorable souvenir.
