Fans of outdoor activities can get some fresh air along with their thrills at Little River’s Go Ape, a 2- to 3-hour forest adventure that includes zip lines, suspended obstacle courses and Tarzan swings through the trees. Or book a tour with Carolina Backwoods ATV Adventures in Ash, North Carolina! The company’s ATV tours can be tailored to any level of skill and challenge, and participants can choose to stay dry or get as down and dirty and all-out muddy as they want to. And you’re never too old to enjoy a day at the Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park! The Myrtle Beach attraction boasts seven go-kart tracks of varying difficulties, a rock-climbing wall, two mini-golf courses and an arcade.
If discounts and deals are more your thing, take a day to explore the wide-ranging shopping, entertainment and restaurant options at venues like Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing. These locations are all-in-one stops for a full day of fun. The whole family can find something to keep them happy and entertained!
Your college grad might enjoy a night out on the town to celebrate the successful completion of four years of higher education. For fans of country music, a stop to soak in some of the fun and Southern hospitality at The Bowery is a must while on the Grand Strand. Known for being the home of the supergroup Alabama, the Myrtle Beach landmark has been serving up sweet music and cold brews for nearly 75 years! Whether you catch a special show or spend an evening rocking out with the house band, The Bowery provides a one-of-a-kind option for taking in the Myrtle Beach nightlife.
The East Coast BrewBoat is also a fun and unique option for your recent college grad. The BrewBoat offers a unique BYOB excursion through the marshlands of Murrells Inlet, offering some breathtaking views that you will not see any other way. The catch is that the boat is powered by pedal stations. Do you want to see what’s on the far side of that island over there? Hop on up and pedal/paddle your way over! And don’t worry — if you just want to relax in the comfortable seating and tip back a few cold ones while you enjoy the view, you can do that, too!
Alternatively, if all of that sounds like too much running around after a busy school year, the Myrtle Beach area and Dayton House Resort have plenty of relaxation-oriented options for you, too. Your new grad can spend his or her vacation days hanging out at the beach or soaking up some rays on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
