3 Places To Spend A Rainy or Cold Day with Kids in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is lucky to enjoy several weeks of good fall weather long after many locations are experiencing the beginning of winter. Still, Myrtle Beach can’t be warm and sunny all the time and since November of brings cold weather and rain to the area, it’s a good idea to know how to stay busy and have fun when you can’t go to the beach or spend time outside. These three places are perfect for rainy or cold days in Myrtle Beach.  Luckily too, all of these spots are a very quick drive to each other.

Ripley's Aquarium

Ripley’s Aquarium

My family loves Ripley’s Aquarium all year long, but since all of the attractions are inside, it is the perfect place to spend a cold fall day. The exhibits change often and there are dive shows and mermaid shows several times a day. Kids can enjoy interactive exhibits and the popular shark tunnel.  Stay for a couple hours or spend the whole day having fun and learning more about fish and aquatic animals.

WonderWorks offers fun for the whole family and it’s educational. It may be a cold and rainy day outside, but inside WonderWorks you will find numerous interactive exhibits and lot of fun games. You can even spend some time going through the ropes course or spend a few hours playing games in the arcade. Before you head home grab a snack at the snack bar.

Many of the great things Myrtle Beach has to offer can be enjoyed outside and on warm, sunny days. That doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to see and do in Myrtle Beach when the weather isn’t the best. Try one of these fun indoor activities the next time you need to escape bad weather.
