102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH
92. Sporting Events
Among the sports being played on the Grand Strand, there’s minor league baseball, Division I collegiate athletics, a world-class high school basketball tournament during the holidays, and numerous amateur youth baseball tournaments throughout the year. And as fun as they are to watch on television, there’s nothing quite like being there to hear the crack of the bat, the shoes squeaking on the gymnasium floor, or the crowd celebrating in unison when an athlete reaches deep down and does something great. Tickets for these events are also very budget-friendly, and the quaint size of the arenas gives attendees a close look at all the action. So after a day at the beach or in the pool, get dressed, have a bite to eat, and head out to one of the area’s exciting sporting events, something the whole family can enjoy.
