Top 5 Ways To Beat The Heat In Myrtle Beach

Summer is the best time to go to Myrtle Beach. The only problem (not really a problem) is that it’s hot outside. The beach is a great way to catch some sun and while the water may help you take a break from the heat, sometimes you need a little more than a quick dip or splash from a wave. Be sure to try one or all of these ways to beat the heat in Myrtle Beach this year.

The Splash Pad At Broadway At The Beach

Let’s face it, shopping is fun, but it’s also tiring and hot! What can make a long day of shopping better at Broadway At The Beach? How about cooling off on the splash pad. The little splash pad is located near the IMAX theater. You will usually see a large crowd of children and their families gathered around it. Bring your swimsuit or a change of clothes because you will get wet! It’s a lot of fun!


You can’t limit yourself to the beach in Myrtle Beach, so why not check out Wild Water and Wheels for a really cool time. Slip down a water slide, wade in the wave pool and relax in the lazy river. Once you are cool enough, take a drive on the go-cart track or play a few games of golf. There is something for everyone to do and you won’t have to sweat while you do it.

Cold Treats

No matter where you are in Myrtle Beach, you aren’t too far from a frozen treat. No matter what your preference, you can find it on the Grand Strand. Try an Italian Ice or one of over 20 different flavors of soft serve. If you prefer hand dipped ice cream,  there are plenty of options for that too. Why not try a nice frozen cocktail on the boardwalk or a slushy? The possibilities are endless but they are all pretty cool.


Watching a movie is a great way to get out of the sun and into a comfortable and cool seat. Every theater in Myrtle Beach is air-conditioned so you know you won’t be sweating, unless the movie gets too intense. Snack on some popcorn, sip some drinks and much some candy because it doesn’t matter how hot it is outside as long as you are on the inside watching something on the big screen.


Being in the water is a great way to stay cool and beat the heat and if you love the water you will love some of the popular watersports in Myrtle Beach. Ride a banana boat, or a dolphin watching boat or if you are really brave, go parasailing. You can also learn to surf, go scuba diving or  ride the waves on a boogie board. Don’t forget your sunscreen though. You may not sweat in the water, but you will still burn.
