29. Arcades


The best arcades in Myrtle Beach have entertained families for generations and continue to do so with nostalgic and modern video games and exciting prizes. Not only is an arcade a saving grace on a rainy day, but it can be one of the best air-conditioned spots at the beach. Whether you’re waiting out a passing rain shower, reliving your youth, or searching for a family-friendly activity your teen and tween will enjoy doing together, these best arcades in Myrtle Beach fit the bill: 

  • Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park
  • Dave & Buster’s
  • The Track
  • Fun Warehouse
  • 810 Billiards & Bowling
  • Black Pearl Mini Golf & Arcade

The “penny arcades,” as they were once known, have a longstanding tradition of amusing crowds during seaside vacations in the Grand Strand. While Myrtle Beach may have lost its iconic Pavilion Amusement Park along the oceanfront, the Fun Plaza is one arcade on the Boardwalk that has been an institution for more than 80 years and is still going strong today. Nearly every Grand Strand community from Cherry Grove to Garden City Beach has an arcade nestled in the bowling alley or rec center, and many of the kid-friendly Myrtle Beach hotels have nice on-site arcades that make entertaining your entire crew easy.

But when you’re seeking out a real gamer’s paradise or family-friendly arcade, Myrtle Beach has spots that give teenagers things to do and satisfy their younger siblings. Whether you want to get lost in the lights and fast-paced action or enjoy good old-fashioned competition, this list includes the best arcades in Myrtle Beach, from hidden gems with vintage games to new, flashy attractions with all the latest tech.
