Add an A to Z Scavenger Hunt to Your List of Things to Do in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is a great vacation spot for singles, couples, friends, families, and anything in between. And though there is plenty to do for everyone, we know that it can be challenging to keep kids entertained, even when on vacation. That’s why we created this list of fun things to do for families with young children. So if you are heading to Myrtle Beach for a family getaway this summer 2021, be sure to make a copy of this list and get your scavenger hunt goggles on.
