Top 4 Attractions near Sand Dunes Resort

When you’re not parasailing high above the Atlantic Ocean, sunbathing on the beach, and splashing at Sands Resorts Waterpark, we recommend visiting one of these ultra-popular Myrtle Beach attractions during your unforgettable family getaway to coastal South Carolina.

  • Broadway at the Beach – Families from across the globe flock to our beautiful oceanfront resort for many reasons, including our pristine beach, seemingly unlimited watersports, and, of course, our on-site Myrtle Beach water park. But Broadway at the Beach will always be a massive draw for families of all ages. Broadway at the Beach is Myrtle Beach’s entertainment, dining, and shopping hub located just 12 minutes from the best Myrtle Beach hotels. Some of the highlights along Celebrity Circle are WonderWorks, Ripley’s Aquarium, and the Hollywood Wax Museum (located across the highway).
  • Myrtle Beach Pelicans – Minor league baseball is equally relaxing, exciting, and occasionally amusing (depending on the night’s promotions). The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are the Chicago Cubs’ Class A affiliate. Current MLB stars Freddie Freeman, Kyle Hendricks, and Elvis Andrus spent time developing their game with the Pelicans. Not only is Field a great, old-school place to watch baseball, but the weekly promotions are simply too good to pass up.
  • SkyWheel – Myrtle Beach is home to the second tallest Ferris wheel in North America: SkyWheel, a 187-foot tall modern marvel that allows vacationers to obtain a birds-eye view of the Atlantic Ocean, Myrtle Beach, and far beyond. With “flights” starting at just $9, the SkyWheel is a must-visit attraction for families who are planning to enjoy the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, which is only a short drive from our Myrtle Beach water park resort.
  • myrtle beach water parkFamily Kingdom Amusement Park – Myrtle Beach’s Family Kingdom Amusement Park provides children and adults alike with 19 straight weeks of nostalgia, old-school thrill rides, and carnival games. You’ll discover everything from wooden roller coasters to bumper cars during your exciting and amusing trip to the Family Kingdom. Besides spending time on the beach and in the Atlantic, the Family Kingdom is one of the top three things to do in Myrtle Beach for families with young children!
