Do you or someone in your family love to fish? If you do, then we can tell you all about fishing on your next family vacation to North Myrtle Beach. Staying with us at North Beach Vacations will keep you and your family close to some of the best fishing locations in the area. Let’s take a look below at a few places where your family can go for some great fishing.
Cherry Grove Pier
Cherry Grove Pier in North Myrtle Beach is one of the best
places in the area to go fishing with the family! They have been open since the
1950s, and it became famous when Walter caught a 1780 lb tiger shark. No need
to have a South Carolina fishing license; it is included with your admission to
the pier. You will notice that the fishing season is from February through December
1st, and don’t worry if you don’t have a fishing pole as you can
rent one. The price of the daily pier pass is $3.00 per person, and even to walk
on the pier for breathtaking views, you must have one. We always recommend that
you go and enjoy fishing from this pier on every vacation with us.
Fishing on the Great Open Waters
Another favorite among locals and our guests is to take a day fishing trip with Little River Fishing Fleet in North Myrtle Beach. Depending on how long you’d like to be on the great open waters of the Atlantic Ocean depends on how much or what fishing adventure you should try. Each fishing trip will include your rod, reel, bait, tackle, and fishing license. Along with the fishing adventures, they also have a Dolphin Adventure Cruise that is available by calling to book. You can however, book your fishing trips online with the first date beginning on May 1st. Think of the excitement that your family could have if you surprised them with this fantastic adventure!

Summer for kids means that it’s time for your annual trip to North Myrtle Beach. North Myrtle Beach is a great place that your family can enjoy year after year and spend as much time in the sand. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep your family close to where the fun in the sun happens. We have come up with 4 fun kid activities for the beach below.
Do You Wanna Build a Sandman?
Think of the snow, think of the cooler weather as your kids
build their very own “snowman” out of sand. What a fun activity this can be for
kids of all ages to build or build a family of sand people. All you will need
is a few sand buckets, several shovels, seashells, driftwood and imagination.
Take a picture of each child with their sandman and frame them when you get
Play Musical Towels
Play a classic game with the kids by playing musical towels on
the beach. Bring your small radio or a smartphone with speakers so you can jam
to some tunes. Make sure before you head to the beach for the day that you have
enough towels for everyone to play. Then once you are on the sand, lay the
towels to make a circle, then it’s time to play musical towels. What a fun way
to spend the day and have a good time with the kids!
Tic-Tac-Toe, Three in a Row
Just like the game that you play with the kids indoors can
now be played outdoors on the sand. This is the best way to enjoy your time on
the beach by playing this game with the kids or letting them play on their own.
All you need to have is a stick or a shell to draw the boxes for the game and to
use to make the X or O. You can always keep a tally on who wins each time the
game is played and give the winner a small prize.
Wait, Is That Skeeball?
Yes, this game is normally found in an arcade or on the boardwalk
but can now be found on the beach. Make your own skeeball game in the sand by making
a small lane and digging about 10 holes into the sand. You will want to make
sure that this is in the shape of a triangle for you to be able to play the
game right. Also, make sure that you have a small ball that can be used as the “skeeball”
to roll down your lane. Keep a tally of who gets the most points and just have
a great time playing together with the family!
There are many other things that your kids would love to do on the beach, but we wanted to mention these. If you still haven’t made you reservations for your next North Myrtle Beach family vacation, now is the time. We can’t wait to see you and your family as you make new memories together on the sand!
