Things To Do
Top 10 Things To Do Under $10
Myrtle Beach’s main attraction is free – enjoying the white sand and warm water of the Atlantic Ocean is complimentary to everyone who makes the trip. But there are lots of other budget-friendly ways to enjoy your vacation on the Grand Strand. Here are ten things under ten dollars to consider.
1105 Hwy 17 South, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
710 Bowling offers tons of fun at a bargain price. Bowl a round for just $3-$4/person before 6 p.m. or enjoy one of the many FREE games, including bocce ball, darts, table tennis or board games. Pro tip: Order food while you’re there. It is not the typical bowling alley fare.

Visit Apache Pier

Mt. Atlanticus Miniature Golf
707 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
The dramatic scenery and views at this downtown Myrtle Beach location are probably the best among mini-golf courses on the Grand Strand.
