Heritage Shores Nature Preserve

An excellent place that you and your family can get your vacation started is located at Heritage Shores Nature Preserve. Located near Cherry Grove boat landing is where you’ll find this hidden secret in the area. Opening in 2007, Heritage Shores Nature Preserve offers families various trails that you can hike and enjoy. It also boasts assessable boardwalks and observation decks along with 7 acres worth of walking paths. Please note that to reach the park entrance, you will have to walk about four blocks. So be sure you are prepared to do a little walk in the heat, but we promise that the views are to die for.

Barefoot Landing

If you’ve never experience Barefoot Landing yet on your vacation, then you’re missing out on some fun. They usually have many different events happening during the year for you to enjoy free of charge, including fireworks. While it does cost money to enjoy some of the other things there, such as shopping and dining, it’s still a nice place that you can head to for the evening to enjoy your time walking around.

McLean Park

Another excellent option for your family to check out is McLean Park, located in North Myrtle Beach. This Park has many different things that your family can experience, such as the playground for the kids to play on, a city lake, and more. Pack your lunch, have a picnic under the shelters, enjoy the meditation garden, and explore the pavilion—what a great place to let the kids play all while you get to enjoy the scenery too.

Broadway at the Beach

Broadway at the Beach is another great location that offers its visitors many different events throughout the year. They usually provide some exciting nightlife during the summer, including stilt walkers, character appearances, and even fireworks. The possibilities are endless here at Broadway at the Beach that you don’t want to miss out on the fun. Bring the family for an early dinner and enjoy the nightlife afterward. Grab a quick treat at one of the sweet shops and just let the kids have a blast. Think of the memories you’ll make by attending one of the many free events on your next vacation!
