5 Things to Do in Myrtle Beach This Winter

January 17, 2022

Winter is a great time to visit Myrtle Beach! With seasonal temperatures hovering around 60 degrees (on average), smaller crowds, and lots of things to do, it is easy to have a magical winter in Myrtle Beach! Here are 5 of our favorite ways to spend a winter day in the Grand Strand.


1. Meet Your Favorite Animals

Visit Ripley's Aquarium for some indoor fun with marine animals or encounter  exotic animals at Alligator Adventure

2. Shop Until You Drop 

Myrtle Beach is home to an assortment of awesome shopping centers. Check out The Market Common for charming boutiques and upscale stores, The Hammock Shops Village for one-of-a-kind finds, Coastal Grand Mall for your mall favorites, Barefoot Landing for the perfect blend of retail and entertainment, or Broadway at the Beach for oceanside staples like surf retailers and fudge shops. 


3. Visit a Kid-Friendly Museum

WonderWorks is full of mind-bending fun. If you're traveling with younger kids, then you should check out Edventure, which is a children's museum that encourages play. At the Hollywood Wax Museum, you can meet wax versions of your favorite celebrities! There's also LW Paul Living History Farm, where kids can participate in live historic demonstrations. 

4. Catch a Show 

Have an evening of exciting entertainment! Catch a show at Alabama Theatre or The Carolina Opry. For spot-on tribute shows, check out GTS Theatre


5. Walk on the Beach

Beach walks are better with smaller crowds. Go for a stroll on scenic Hunting Beach State Park or serene Cherry Grove Beach
