Summer is the perfect time to work on your putt-putt game, and with more than 50 courses throughout town, Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to practice your swing. Try your luck on the 36 holes of Mt. Atlanticus, or head to the Tiki-themed Hawaiian Rumble in North Myrtle Beach to go up against a course that fights back with erupting volcanoes and other fun surprises.

Watch the sky light up with fireworks

Every Tuesday and Friday all summer long, the night sky above Broadway at the Beach crackles to life with colorful explosions over Lake Broadway. The festivities don’t start until 10 p.m., but head to this shopping and entertainment center early to explore the novelty shops or grab a drink at Margaritaville beforehand.

Get a bird’s eye view with a helicopter ride

Soaking up the South Carolina sun is free on Myrtle Beach. Grab your beach chairs, towels and sunblock and head out early to claim your own little slice of sand. Myrtle Beach is where all the action is, but you can also find quieter shores to the south on Pawleys Island.
