Things to do in Myrtle Beach

Ripley's Aquarium Ripley's Aquarium Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
When you visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, be sure to stop in and visit the marvelous and exciting Ripley's Aquarium, an 85,000 square foot aquarium that is filled with outstanding exhibits and sights. There are many wonderful exhibits and displays at the park, with the Rio Amazon looking more like the jungle that grows along the Amazon River, filled with stingrays, armored catfish, piranhas, silver arawana, pacu, red tailed catfish and tiger shovelnose catfish, as well as many other exotic and strange tropical fish. Another is the dangerous reef that is full of fish, thousands of them, in just about any shape or size, and the biggest, most popular display here. You stand or ride the 340 foot glidepath as it flows through an acrylic tunnel and you are inside a world of unbelievable sights like tarpons, sawfish, green sea turtles, snappers, squirrelfish, huge stingrays, grunts and enormous sharks. It is as if you are underwater yourself, with all the creatures of the deep, but you can breath normally and actually get face to face with these wonders of the deep blue sea. There are also sand tiger sharks, nurse sharks and sandbar sharks that will make you think twice about getting too close to the acrylic, even though it is very thick and you are protected. In the living gallery, you'll be viewing the more unusual and fragile creatures of the deep, like living corals, weedy sea dragons, octopus, jellies and sea anemones. There are also the bat star fish, regal blue tang fish that are part of the sturgeon family and other awesome fish. The rainbow rock exhibit is filled with the most beautiful and exotic fish of the aquarium, found in the waters of the Indo-Pacific coral reefs with very brilliantly colored fish as they swim and swarm around and into the outstanding coral reefs. The reefs here are hand crafted so that no real coral is destroyed or disturbed, and divers hand feed the exotic fish that look as if every color in the rainbow had just fallen down from the sky and wrapped them up. Some of these fabulous beauties include the bluespine unicornfish, the clown triggerfish, scrawled filefish, emperor angelfish or raccoon butterflyfish. Another display, that is rather unusual for visitors to view is the system control room that shows you how all this is accomplished and the many processes that are needed to keep every tank just right as well as the water that is their main environments. You can even watch the computers as they run their various tasks without human interference, as if they were specially tuned into the fish and their needs. The discovery center is so exciting that it might be more crowded than the other exhibits since you touch and hold many of the marine specimens in this sea-for-yourself interactive multi-media playground that doubles as a wonderful educational resource center. There are well trained staff members located all around to answer any and every question that you or your children might have, with classes and topics for group discussions each day. Be sure to check out the horseshoe crabs that aren't really crabs but belong to the spider family. In the ray bay, you are going to be amazed as the stingrays glide along so smoothly like the birds of the air, only these creatures are gliding like rays as they swim around the pool and get hand fed by their trainers. You are going to be able to touch and feel these smooth skinned fish as they slide and glide under your hands. In this display you will enjoy the spotted eagle rays, bowmouth guitarfish, cownose rays, whitespotted bamboo sharks and southern stingrays. It is a day of exceedingly unique excitement for you and the entire family and one of a king type of aquarium that exists just for your pleasure and fun.

TPC Myrtle BeachTPC Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
The TPC Myrtle Beach, South Carolina golf course offers ordinary golfers, or any type of amateur golfer the opportunity to play a great round of golf on one of the tournament tour courses, designed by famed golf architect Tom Fazio. The course has been the site of many Senior Tour Championships, allowing you to play on the same turf that many golfing greats have played. The entire course is expertly groomed and manicured, with outstanding greens and fairways, with high towering pines and large marvelous wetlands to make the entire scene one of enjoyment and pleasure. Once you've played the course and used every club in your bag, head to the clubhouse that is lavishly attired and relax with a cool drink and ponder on the experience you've just had. Golf Digest has awarded the course 5 stars, and is the only such course that is located on the Grand Strand that has been given this high honor. In the summer of 2010, the greens have been replaced and the bunkers alongside them have been completely rejuvenated with new drainage and sand so that your play is going to be even better. The course opened in 1999, and began hosting the PGA Tour Championship, so that now anyone can come here and play on a PGA approved course that challenges you just as much as it does the professionals, and now you can see how you stack up against them, without having to enter a tournament or be so nervous playing a doubles or triples round with them that you play the worst you ever have. The locker room is exactly what you would expect from a luxury course, with exceptional practice area, as well as all the amenities that accompany a golf club like this one. The greens are firmer and of course faster, so that you will fully experience the feel of playing like a professional and have one of the best games you have ever played. The course has also been hosting the nation's finest collegiate tournament, the General Hackler Invitational, each spring so you know that no matter when you come, the course is going to be in the best shape of the season, regardless of when you go. Besides using all your clubs, you will be using every one of your best shots, from long balls to the shorts chips, with hazards and bunkers all around you to challenge you to play your best game. The aprons around the greens are kept shaved so when you hit your ball, you better have a good idea of where it is going to land so you don't end up in the bunkers and have to play above your best to get out. Every shot you make from the first drive to the last putt is going to stretch your talents to their utmost and encourage you to play like you've never played before, which is the best way to learn and improve your game. The course has four sets of tees that play between 6183 and 6950 yards, allowing you to play from your handicap, with enough variation to make the game one of excitement and challenge.

Franklin G. Burroughs, Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum Franklin G. Burroughs, Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Although the Franklin G. Burroughs, Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum only opened in 1997, it had been born in the minds of various Myrtle Beach, South Carolina art patrons, business leaders, artists, cultural enthusiasts and other private citizens some 13 years before. The museum structure had been constructed in 1924, by the textile magnate Eugene Cannon in the Cabana section of the city, then sold to Colonel Elliot White Springs to be used by his family and the executives of Springs Industries and renamed Springmaid Villa. Then in 1975, the house would change owners and somehow end being scheduled for demolition, but a campaign was started to save the historic house, which was led by Waccamaw Arts and Crafts guild president, Gaye Sanders Fisher. The building could be saved but it would have to be moved, requiring two flatbed trucks and three full days to move the 150 ton house and a team of city employees, utility workers and all the guild members. It would then be moved 8 miles south to an undeveloped land mass that was donated by the Myrtle Beach Farms company, which was the forerunner of the Burroughs & Chapin Company. The museum houses six first floor galleries with changing exhibits, an art studio, classroom area used for children's, family and adult workshops, reception hall with baby grand piano used for demonstrations, receptions, displays, lectures, and concerts; four second floor galleries that include the Grace Martin Matlock education galleries; the Simeon Chapin art resource library and the Carolyn Burroughs Tea Porch that is enclosed and used for receptions, teas and other numerous events that gave visitors an outstanding view of the Atlantic Ocean. The four permanent galleries include the art museum permanent collection that is small but growing with donations, purchases and artists' exhibits; the Bishop maps and prints collection that includes 15 maps from 1606 to the mid 20th century showing what the golden age of cartography was like and a selection of 15 complementary historical prints. The Barbara Burgess and John Dinkelspiel collection of southern art that had been obtained for over a decade by Barbara Burgess and John Dinkelspiel, a couple of Bostonians that had migrated to the lowcountry that contains 21 works by Jonathan Green and almost a dozen southern artists' works. Included in the 50 plus works are sculptures, paintings, lithographs, prints, pastels, collages and photographs. The Waccamaw arts and crafts guild collection that includes artists from the 1960s on, and had created a great number of works. The guild's collection of 46 works were created by some 29 regional artists and was the first gift and permanent collection in 1997.

Alabama Theater
Alabama Theater Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaThe Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the number 1 live theater attraction with more shows and concerts to keep your Grand Strand vacation going all night long. The country rock band, Alabama had always wanted to return to their roots in Myrtle Beach and where it all started for them and their many fans. In 1993, the Alabama Theater opened and brought national attention to this already famous beach resort city, with outstanding help from industry leaders like the Gaylord Entertainment group that came in to help with the writing, producing and directing of many of the fabulous shows the were going to be held here, using just about every style of music and more. They would bring in the best talents in the industry to help with the singers, bands, dancers, costumes and stage, with a professional lighting director to run the hundreds of lights. The magnificent sound system was designed by Electrotec Productions, Inc. of LA, a company that already has a successful history of setting up sound for bands like Alabama, the Eagles, Paul McCartney, Barbara Streisand and Rod Stewart, all digitally controlled and tuned. Every year, almost half of the show's content will change with newer costumes, performers and sets. With the dozens of microphones used every week, a full case of batteries are used, with even a floor that floats on rubber bushings, making the theater one of the best live entertainment theaters in the nation. Some of the fabulous features that are upcoming include; George Jones, the Lettermen, Tim Conway and Friends, Oak Ridge Boys and James Gregory in October; with November looking like a Christmas show almost all month long except for the Carolina Beach music awards and Larry the Cable guy. It is a great place to visit for a night or a few nights with so many things to do and see, Myrtle Beach is one jumping city.

Atalaya CastleAtalaya Castle Huntington Beach, South Carolina
Atalaya Castle or Atalaya had been the winter home of Archer M. Huntington and his wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, in Huntington Beach, South Carolina, constructed in 1931 and finished in 1933. Archer was a well known scholar of Spanish culture and art, and modeled the house after the style of the Moorish architecture that is found along the Spanish Mediterranean coastline. It was constructed by the ocean in an area that has become Huntington Beach, and picked to become their milder winter retreat for Anna's health, suffering from tuberculosis from the mid 1920s to the mid 1930s. The masonry structure measures 200 feet square and had no formal plans other than what was inside Archer's mind; using labor from the local area to give work to those that had been hard hit by the Great Depression. The word, "Atalaya" means watchtower in Spanish, and is dominated by a large square tower that held a 3000 gallon water tank and rose from a covered walkway in the inner court, some 40 feet into the sky. The walls of this courtyard were covered with creeping fig vines, palms and the sabal palmetto, the state's tree. Inside their were 30 rooms that went around three sides of the perimeter, with the studio, and its 25 foot skylight, would open into a smaller enclosed courtyard where Anna worked on her sculptures. There were pens for the animal models, that was adjacent to it and had room for dogs, horses and bears. The structure had hand-wrought iron grills designed by Anna and covers the exteriors of the windows, with shutters installed as well to protect them from hurricanes. In WWII, the Huntingtons would leave the castle and allowed the Army Air Corps to use it from 1942 to 1946, and they would use it last in 1947, with Archer passing on in 1955. The majority of the furnishings were then sent to New York, and the studio equipment moved across the street to the Brookgreen Gardens that had cut through their property. Their 2500 acre estate was leased to the state in 1960 for usage as a state park, until Anna passed on in 1973. It would be added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and along with Brookgreen made a National Historic Landmark in the same year.

There have been more than 300 species of birds identified here, with many trails and field trips to encourage visitors to come and take part in the many programs that make up the region.
