Things to do, see, and eat in Myrtle Beach

What are some really cool things to do, see, and eat on a Myrtle Beach vacation? I'd like to take a trip with my husband and 11 year old stepson and stay at a nice beach front hotel but need to know what are things we must do and places we must eat.

Go to the beach, walk the board walk, ride the sky wheel, shop at Broadway At the Beach and Barefoot Landing, go to Brookgreen Gardens, eat seafood in Murrel's Inlet, throw peanuts on the floor while eating burgers at River City Cafe, and have breakfast at the Sea Captain's House Restaurant overlooking the beach. Just a few ideas!  Have fun!

Edit: Forgot to add to play miniature golf. Tons of really cool courses for the kids and adults! Also if you want a side trip, the South Carolina Aquarium and Sea Turtle Hospital in Charleston is a great day trip. You need advance reservations for the sea turtle hospital.

Two of my favorite outdoor places that are out of the tourist spotlight of Myrtle Beach are Huntington Beach State Park, the beach is less crowded and you can observe lots of wildlife  along their bridge/boardwalks (e.g., alligators, birds) and visit their nature center.  Adjacent to HBSP is Brookgreen Gardens, which has some kid geared attractions - the gardens and sculptures are just gorgeous.  Together, these would make a nice picnic-style day trip

There is a TON of stuff to do for those visiting Myrtle Beach. I should know as my company just completed our Myrtle Beach Family Vacation Guide. Rather than list everything here as some have tried to do, I'm posting a link to our "Lay of the Land" article to help you and your family prioritize activities, places to stay, golf courses, restaurants, etc.
