102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

38. Water Parks and Hotels with Water Parks

The ultimate Myrtle Beach water attraction is the Atlantic Ocean, obviously. But sometimes you want to get away from the sand and salt and buzz down a slide on an innertube. Lucky for those that are into waterparks, Myrtle Beach has several to choose from. They’re a great way for the whole family to spend the day — parents can relax (or not) while the kids make their way up and down the slides, supervised by the park’s staff of lifeguards and safety experts. As with the beach, you’ll want to bring plenty of sun screen, but there are generally shaded areas where direct exposure can be somewhat avoided. The best shaded areas? The slides, of course!

In recent years, hotels have started adding waterparks on-site so guests don’t even need to leave their resort for thrills and spills. On-site waterparks are an ideal way for hotel guests to take a break from the sun and sand. Many are indoors and open year-round, making anytime a great time for some water fun!
