Are you looking for an adventure vacation?

Base View of the Strand Resort

Sometimes, a leisurely getaway isn’t what you’re after.

Sometimes, you want … adventure. And that adventure could come in many shapes and sizes, especially when you visit Myrtle Beach. Whether your definition of adventure is mild or wild, you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for.

You don’t need a lot of special equipment to have an adventure vacation in Myrtle Beach. Bring your wallet, your courage, your best beachwear – and your best dinner/mingling wear, too. And most importantly: an open mind! You just might find something unexpected here.

You can find adventure by sea, by air, or by the oceanfront.

Why take an adventure vacation?

Fun, for starters. Also, many adventures you’ll find in Myrtle Beach will get you up and moving. It’s not always easy to get your exercise with the busy lives we live. It’s good for your mind, too. You’ll find your mood lifts when you do something fun – and that will hopefully stick with you after you return home. We’ll bet you even sleep better after a full day in Myrtle Beach, on jet skis, trying new cuisine, or making new friends.

11 ways to add adventure to your vacation


Myrtle Beach has plenty of ways you can get a rush, by water or by air.

Surf lessons

If it’s been a while since you’ve been on a surfboard, or if this will be your first ride, try taking a surf lesson. The more you know, the safer and more enjoyable you’ll be in the Carolina surf. You’ll learn how to paddle, pop up on the board, and surf safely.

Get a unique view of Myrtle Beach – from above. You’re tethered to a boat and get to lift into the air, attached to a canopy wing that looks like a parachute, for an exhilarating experience. It’s a big adrenaline rush to soar around 300 feet above the ocean!

If your idea of a thrill involves being catapulted (with someone special) through the air nearly 400 feet, then slingshotting is for you. Experience a bit of weightlessness and huge lifts and drops. It’s a pretty dreamy ride.

Fly down a steel cable on a pulley, suspended by a body harness, fast enough for a good thrill. It’s like having a moment as a flying superhero, with a little imagination. You get plenty of airtime on a zipper, as they’re sometimes called. Try one out in Myrtle Beach.
