If you’re planning a trip to Myrtle Beach, then one of the first things you’ll surely see is Broadway at the Beach. And for good reason! Broadway at the Beach is one of the premier destinations on the Grand Strand for family entertainment, great dining, and plenty of shopping. Whether you’re looking for an educational undersea experience or a trip to Margaritaville, Broadway at the Beach has enough excitement for an entire day (or more) for your party.
To begin our tour of Broadway at the Beach, we’ll start off with one of its most prominent attractions, Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach. Known as one of the best aquariums on the east coast, Ripley’s features sea life from the world over! From a glass bottom boat tour over Dangerous Reef (where you’ll float over some of the most vicious predators in the ocean) to breakfast with mermaids, this aquarium has something on display for every undersea interest.
If you’re in the mood for something equally interesting but a little more mind-bending, pay a visit to WonderWorks, an indoor “amusement park for the mind” with over 100 hands-on attractions that are fun for all ages!
After you’ve explored the aquarium, it might be time to satisfy your appetite with a great lunch or dinner. Luckily, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is only a short walk away! Here you’ll not only find island-style food and drinks, but you’ll be immersed in the spirit of paradise, with music and plenty of beach atmosphere to take you away as you enjoy the delicious selections.
So after these fun and unique experiences, you’ll probably want to treat yourself a little further, right? You’re in luck! Broadway at the Beach features some of the best and most diverse shopping on the Grand Strand, all packed into one destination for a one-stop shopping trip. If outdoor or surf-style clothing is your preference, then visit the Coastal Outfitters Pro Shop, featuring all the best outdoor brands like brands like Salt Life, Columbia, Under Armor and more, or the Ron Jon Surf Shop. If you or your family are more into movie and TV memorabilia, then a trip to Hollywood Heroes & Villains is in order!
And when you’re ready for some evening relaxation after a long day at Broadway at the Beach, you have plenty of options to finish your adventurous day off in style. Maybe you can catch a show at the Broadway Theater or Legends in Concert (featuring some of the best tributes to your favorite classic musical acts around!) Or, if you prefer something a little more thrilling, take a night ride on the Beach Rider Jet Boat for a rollercoaster-like experience on the lake.
These attractions only barely scratch the surface of the fun you can have at Broadway at the Beach, and you could easily spend an entire day just taking it all in. Don’t forget to come back to visit the amazing Myrtle Waves Water Park down the road when you visit!
