After a shortened vacation season, fall trips to Myrtle Beach sound like a great idea.
Businesses on the Grand Strand found ways to weather the pandemic while serving their communities. That’s the reason so much of the fun things about Myrtle Beach are open and available this fall. Both visitors and residents did a great job to mask up, keep social distance, and respect the threat coronavirus presented.
Now it’s time to get out in that cool autumn Carolina air – with plenty of sunshine left, too. Before you head here, and while you’re visiting, be sure to check the Center for Disease Control guidelines for updates in the protocol.
What’s Open at Caribbean Resort?
Multiple pools, a couple of lazy rivers, and a splash pool for our littlest guests are open. There’s a lot of fun to be had at Caribbean Resort in Myrtle Beach and we are excited to say that all our water amenities are open.

What Attractions are Open in Myrtle Beach?
The aquarium asks that guests wear masks. The glass-bottom boat tour and touch tanks are closed, but so many other cool features here are up and running. With safety first, it might take a bit longer in lines. Don’t miss a walk through the glass tunnels in the shark tanks. You’ll be astonished at what you see.
All staff wears masks. Get discounted shipping on cases of wine as a bit of pandemic relief. Duplin Winery is a popular visit for many who come to Myrtle Beach, and for good reason. A wine-tasting experience will expose you to some of the best sweet and dry wines around – and give you a bit of a history lesson about the winery itself. Other safety measures are in place to ensure a safe experience for guests.
Outlet employees self-screen for illness, and are subject to temperature checks before their shifts. You’ll find several hand sanitizing stations throughout the complex for your convenience. Some hours have changed, so check the website before you visit – and remember that mask! Tanger Outlets has a nationwide and local plan in place to keep this shopping area as safe as possible for guests.
Broadway at the Beach
There’s still live music, fish to feed, and a collection of your favorite shops and restaurants – and a few new ones to discover, too. Touchpoints such as door handles are getting attention from the cleaning crew throughout the day. Before opening, the complex has an inspection protocol in place to start the day right.
With foot-opening devices on restroom doors and other doors that open outward, Barefoot Landing is looking out for its customers. You’ll find plenty to do – food, shopping, arcade games, and more. Please wear a mask and sanitize on your way in (sanitation stations provided) and before and after using touchpoints. Restaurant tables are spaced for social distancing, and floor decals remind us to keep that 6-foot bubble intact.
It’s easy to remember how to social distance when you’re in medieval times: It’s one sword’s length – and parties for a delicious dinner will have proper space, too. The castle has made a few adjustments to keep the show going. Her Majesty insists everyone wear a mask in the castle and go through temperature screening on your way in.
A reminder: Wash your hands thoroughly before and after the ride (for at least 20 seconds). Also, avoid touching your face as you ride and before you can wash your hands again. With that out of the way, this will be an unforgettable ride! It’s a calm tour like no other on the spectacular SkyWheel – with striking views of beautiful Myrtle Beach. Please be patient if lines take longer than usual – it’s a result of stringent cleaning after every ride.
Hollywood Wax Museum
Masks are required for entry, per Myrtle Beach mandate, but you’ll be able to see all the stars’ faces inside. Masks are provided to those who need them. Please pay by credit or debit card only as another precaution. This is an unforgettable place and fun for visitors of any age. The popular stops: the mirror maze and zombie land.
Broadway Grand Prix
Don’t forget your mask, and your patience – the crew cleans each car between rides. Please postpone your visit if you’re feeling ill. If you’re good – there’s a ride for any age of driver! And for those not behind the wheel, there’s a fun kid- and family-friendly area to chill in. You can easily spend an afternoon racing and enjoying fair-inspired food.
WonderWorks Myrtle Beach
Masks are required. Welcome to that cool upside-down building you see on the Strip! Everything is right-side up inside, with a staff diligently keeping things sanitary for guests. It’s fun for the whole family – and lessons in science that are part of the fun. Show your school ID, teachers, for an educator discount. Then, don’t miss the bubble factory and stellar laser tag.
The Carolina Opry
You’re in for a fabulous show with a fantastic cast. Beer and wine are available in concessions at this acclaimed performing arts center. There’s a show for everyone among the wonderful collection of genres represented. The show will go on at The Carolina Opry – with a few minor adjustments to seating and other safety measures.
Masks are required, especially for interior galleries and museum shops. The Huntington Sculpture Garden is closed until further notice. There’s plenty of socially distanced space on the winding trails through the extraordinary gardens and statuary. If you forget your mask, Brookgreen will provide one.
