In addition to the water-centric recreational activities you’d expect to find along the coast — swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, wakeboarding and the like — the Grand Strand is loaded with traditional athletic facilities for competitive sports like soccer, tennis, baseball, softball and more. And organizers of sporting events have taken notice — between the tournament-level facilities available here and the Myrtle Beach area’s amazing mix of hotels, dining options, entertainment opportunities and coastal climate, it’s a perfect destination for teams of young athletes to compete, and for their families to join the trip and have some fun.
