Here are five things you could do on your next trip here.

1. Take the teens to Ground Zero

Bring your teenagers to this safe, interactive space. Your kids will encounter extraordinary people and make lifetime memories. And you’ll love the mission. This faith-based venue features live music and groups relevant to teen life.


ADVICE: Before you go, challenge the gang at Myrtle Beach Room Escape nearby. The Wizard of Oz theme gets high praise!

ADVICE: Budget $5 (or $10) for everyone in your family to buy a gift for someone else. Like secret Santa, only secret Gay Dolphin. It’s an adventure.
