There’s plenty of things to do in North Myrtle Beach on spring break. If you have teens who enjoy watersports, check out Shark Wake Park, South Carolina’s first full-size cable watersports park. At Shark Wake Park, novice to expert wakeboarders are pulled on the water from a cable, not a boat. But don’t worry, Mom, it’s a great (and safe!) way to learn how to wakeboard. There are also challenging obstacles for more advanced riders. If your family prefers air to sea, take the ride of a lifetime at neighboring GoApe, where you can zip line through the trees.

Enjoy the water (and the view):

Don’t forget to spend time at the beach! North Myrtle Beach is home to some of the widest beaches on the Grand Strand. Many of our accommodations are beachfront, making it easy to enjoy the sand and surf. Be sure to take the family to Cherry Grove Pier, an iconic spot in North Myrtle Beach, where you can cast a line or just enjoy the view. Want a preview? Check out our live Cherry Grove Pier webcam.
