Myrtle Beach Attractions and things to do in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach Attractions – Museums, Water Parks, and Unique Destinations

Myrtle Beach is full of attractions and things to do. You don't need to wait for a rainy day to get off the beach; there are so many activities, places to go and things to do that you will want to get an early start. Where else will you find America's largest outdoor sculpture garden? How about an entire museum that is upside down? Other towns have malls (and we do, too) but Myrtle Beach has entire villages that have been erected to elevate the art of shopping to a level that makes them into attractions in their own right.
