Plenty to see and do for students still in Myrtle Beach for Spring Break
The week is finally here, Spring Break 2019. Many students have already left town, gone home, or gone on a destination vacation. If plans haven’t been made, it’s still early enough in the week and there is still time to find something to do right here in Myrtle Beach.
Some students left town to go to places like the Bahamas, Miami, Panama City, or somewhere tropical, but what many don’t realize is that Myrtle Beach is one of top spring break destinations because of the attractions, events around town, shows, watersports and, of course, the beach.
There are many who decided to stay in Conway because it is a little more budget-friendly.
“Even though it’s my senior year I wanted stay in town to save a little money and work during my spring break,” said senior Macy Moffatt. She works at the brand-new Top Golf and says it’s a great place to hang out if you decided to stay in Myrtle Beach.
“Even though I’m not going out of town, I can find plenty of fun things to do while I’m here. I plan to hang out around at The Market Common or the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk on my days off,” she said.
There are many attractions around town in addition to Top Golf, like WonderWorks, Ripley’s Aquarium, the Hollywood Wax Museum, 810 Bowling in Conway and The Market Common, and one of the most popular, the SkyWheel on the Boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach.
“We are so lucky to live so close to the beach,” said junior Chelsea Spivey. “I love that I am only a short drive from the ocean and that’s where I plan to be when I am not working if the weather allows it. Some of my friends and I are planning on playing tourist and hanging out at some of the local beach bar/restaurants on in the area. One of our favorite places to go is Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar.”
What attracts many groups of students to come to the area is not only the attractions and the beaches, but the nightlife.
“I am excited to stay in town and enjoy the nightlife with the other spring breakers from out of town!” said senior Nicole Edwards. “It’s so much fun to meet people from other schools across the U.S.”
Edwards has both worked and participated in the nightlife festivities at Broadway at the Beach during spring break.
“If you like going out and you’re in town do not miss out on the fun!” said Edwards. Broadway clubs Oz/Malibu’s and Senor Frogs are having different themed parties throughout the week.
Myrtle Beach has plenty to offer. If you want more information about some of the other attractions, nightlife, restaurants and shops in the area, visit www.myrtlebeach.com.
