Many visitors do Myrtle Beach in a long weekend; beach or golf by day, and nightlife, dining, and shows by night. But with the area's bounty of beaches, amusements parks, mini-golf courses, and waterslides, you could easily fill a week, especially if you've got kids in tow. Enjoy the great outdoors by water or land (boardwalk, mini-golf, and Market Common festivals year-round) or pass rainy days in indoor playgrounds with aquariums, museums, and arcades galore. If history is your passion, spend at least a day exploring Georgetown on foot, by boat, or with a guided tour. With all this to explore, we recommended you rent a car, as these treasures are widespread.
