Each and every year, Myrtle Beach makes minor adjustments here and there to improve the experience of everyone who visits the Grand Strand. This year, there have been some amazing improvements, new additions and news for future Myrtle Beach attractions. Continue reading to find out what has been going on in the area over the past few months:
If you have visited this famous North Myrtle Beach attraction lately, you may have noticed a few changes. The storefronts are now much more modern on the eastern side and a new bridge has been construction (mostly because of Matthew). Over the next few years, Barefoot Landing will be developing a walkable restaurant district to be called Dockside Village, located along the Instracoastal Waterway. Lulu’s by Lucy Buffett has potential to be the the most exciting addition to Dockside Village. This 20,000 square foot space will offer a 400-seat restaurant, a large sandy beach, ropes climbing course, arcade and much more! This will be Lulu’s third location in the United States.
Dave & Buster’s
Eat. Drink. Play. Watch. At the newest attraction to hit the beach, you can do just about anything your heart desires! Dave & Buster’s has taken Broadway at the Beach by storm. Patrons are able to play the latest & greatest arcade games while sipping on their favorite beverage, eating delicious food and watching their favorite sports team play. Make sure you race your friends in a game of Mario Kart. It puts the classic N64 video game to shame!
Broadway at the Beach
In addition to Dave & Buster’s, Broadway at the Beach has seen the most change over the past few months. Celebrity Square has been completely revamped and now has an appeal similar to Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Hard Rock Cafe was torn down and replaced by Dave & Busters and now sits on the corner of the entrance by Fat Tuesday. The other corner is occupied by the American Tap House, where you can order pretty much any beer your heart desires. Next to the Tap House, you will find the popular burger chain Wahlburgers, which opened it’s first Myrtle Beach location here. If you take a stroll towards Ripley’s Aquarium from Celebrity Square, you will notice that there is a rather large building where Carlos’n Charlie’s used to reside. Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen is now serving guests the lowcountry flavors of the south.
Shark Wake Park
What is a floating aqua park? Great question! North Myrtle Beach’s new inflatable, floating aqua park is described as an “enormous floating playground or obstacle course,” and features a series of inflatable slides, runways, jumping pillows and bouncers all connected. This floating playground is the largest on the east coast, covering an acre of water. The aqua park can hold up to 120 people per hour!
Just a few weeks ago, the Community Appearance Board of Myrtle Beach approved the design of a 53,321 square-foot building. That building next to Broadway at the Beach will be home to Topgolf! This popular attraction can best be described as a driving range on steroids. Guests can eat, drink and be merry as they aim for targets out on the range. There are games for golfers of all ages. Topgolf has 30 venues across the United States, the most recent being in Charlotte.
As part of the Grand Strand community ourselves, it’s important to see so much growth is such a short period of time. The more Myrtle Beach Attractions we have, the better. We want our guests to enjoy each and every minute they spend here on vacation.
