Explore Family Fun at Broadway at the Beach

By:Kerry Egan

Date:9/28/2017

With more than 20 restaurants and 100 shops, Broadway at the Beach is a great place to spend a day exploring shops and trying out new places and cuisines to eat. The outdoor complex just one and a half miles from the ocean in Myrtle Beach has been a draw for visitors since it first opened in 1995.

But anyone with children knows that little kids don’t usually find shopping and dining to be nearly as exciting as their parents. In fact, some little kids might find the prospect of a day spent shopping to be downright disastrous.

But lucky for the whole family, Broadway at the Beach has more than just great shopping and fantastic dining.

It’s also home to theaters, zip lines, countless amusement park rides, a mini golf course and so much more. In fact, Broadway at the Beach has so many fun activities for kids and families that you may be tempted to spend more than one day exploring.

There are lots of big family attractions, like WonderWorks, Dinosaurs the Exhibition and the fantastic Ripley’s Aquarium. But there are also lots of smaller, easy-to-overlook activities that are also just fantastic.

Here are a few of our favorite, easy-to-overlook activities for families with kids that you shouldn’t miss:

Water Rollers

Those clear blobs floating on the lake are not a science experiment gone astray. They are some of the most fun bigger kids can have. Kids (and brave adults) can climb into what can only be described as a human-sized floating hamster balls and roll, bounce, and walk across the water.

Feeding the Fish

This activity might not be so obvious at first, but you don’t want to miss it and your kids will love it. The central lake at Broadway at the Beach has been stocked with fish, and those enthusiastic fish love to eat. Along the boardwalks you’ll find little machines that sell fish food. Trust us—this will be the best 25 cents you can spend at Broadway at the Beach.

Playground

Sometimes, the awesome sensory overload of Broadway at the Beach can be too much for the littlest ones. But no worry, because Broadway at the Beach has an old-fashioned, low-tech playground where even the smallest kids can have fun.

Interactive Fountain

On hot summer days, nothing feels as good as cooling off in cold water. Make sure to spend some time at the Interactive Fountain, where kids can play in the leaping, spouting, ever-changing water.

Jet Boats

A jet boat ride is the experience you never knew you needed in your life until you try it. An impossibly fast boat zooms and spins and bounces across the water of the lake, leaving everyone in the boat laughing. You’ll find the ticket booths and entrance on the long docks that cross the lake. ((NOTE: Please link to the power boat story Kerry did earlier this month)))
