Rain or Shine, There’s Fun to Be Had on the Grand Strand

Article Thumbnail Image

One of the best things about visiting a world-class family vacation destination like Myrtle Beach — the wide array of things to do. Whether it’s enjoying nature’s beauty, exploring a museum, treating yourself to a delicious meal or taking in the thrills of an amusement park, vacation crews can rest assured that visitors of all ages can find a way to have a good time here. And even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, there are plenty of family-friendly activities to explore indoors when vacationing on the Grand Strand.

Next time the South Carolina weather takes a turn for the worse and keeps you and your crew off the backyard beach during your getaway at Caribbean Resort & Villas, consider one of these great ways to have a blast despite the wet weather outside:

Hollywood Wax Museum — Located at Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach (and an easy, 7-minute drive from Caribbean Resort & Villas), this attraction lets you get up close and personal with some of the silver screen’s biggest stars — or their amazing likenesses, anyway. Other make-you-look-twice humanlike wax figures include musical icons, top sports figures, royalty and more, all perfect for selfie-taking. While you’re there, check out Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors and the Outbreak experience. Learn more at

Rockin’ Jump — Found about 3 minutes south of Caribbean Resort & Villas on North Oak Street, this trampoline park is a perfect destination for those looking to burn off some energy indoors. Attractions such as the Vertical Ops rock-climbing wall, the Ninja Challenge obstacle course, the Slam Dunk Zone basketball court and the X-Beam jousting pit will have the youngsters in your crew bouncing off the walls. Other fun areas include the air-filled Stunt Bag for safe flipping and jumping, as well as the Dodgeball Arena and the Open Jump Arena. An on-site pizza parlor allows visitors to grab a bite to eat when they’re not jumping for joy. Visit to learn more.

Ripley's Aquarium  — Also located at Broadway at the Beach, this attraction lets visitors see the creatures of the ocean’s deepest depths, all while staying dry and at sea level. Get an up-close look at sharks, stingrays (which you can even touch), fish of the Indo-Pacific coral reef (including triggerfish, tang, rabbitfish, clownfish, angelfish and more), eels, tarpon, sea turtles, puffer fish, horseshoe crabs, sea dragons, octopuses, jellyfish — the list is practically as long as the ocean is deep.
