Shark Teeth Hunting Tips


shark_teethLow tide is the best time to find these sharp fossils. The water is calmer and clearer at low tide, giving you better visibility. Early morning hours, we feel are the best times to search. There are fewer people around to compete with.

Shark Teeth can be found near the water, usually right where the tide is rolling out and especially where you see the accumulation of broken shells, near the last high tide mark. It is a very tedious but relaxing hobby. Some of us are at it for hours on end.

Look for small, black triangular shapes in the sand. The more you find, the more your eyes will key in on them. You will be an expert hunter in no time. Always remember to carry a small pouch or bucket to collect your treasures and lather on the sunscreen.

Sands Experience: Sands Waterpark

Family on Lazy River at Sands Waterpark

There’s no need to spend a lot of money visiting one of Myrtle Beach’s many waterparks when guests at Sands Resorts have one in their own front yard.

Located on the Sand Dunes property in Myrtle Beach, guests at it or any of the Sand Resorts family of hotels receive unlimited usage of the facilities for free. Cruise down the lazy river or splash down on one of the many the waterslides without standing in the long lines and paying the high admission prices.

Sand Resorts Waterpark offers something fun for the whole family. The little ones can play all day on the aquatic treehouse, kiddie-pool playground and other attractions designed with safety in mind.

Meanwhile, the grownups can stretch out by the poolside and catch some rays while watching their children have a good time. Or get into the fun by grabbing a float and sailing around the lazy river or by taking a soak in the bubble pool.

So throw on that swimsuit, slather on some sunscreen and have a splashing good time at the Sands Resorts Waterpark. It’s all part of the Sands Experience.

Broadway Grand Prix Offers Fast, Fun Times!

logoGuests at the Sands Resorts family have plenty of entertainment options to choose from, but the Broadway Grand Prix at Broadway at the Beach may be the fastest and most fun.

Replacing the old NASCAR SpeedPark, the Broadway Grand Prix opened in 2014 to rave reviews from racing fans and fun-lovers. In addition to go-kart racing, the complex also features miniature golf, amusement rides, a high-tech arcade and much more.

Guests receive Buy One, Get One tickets to this popular attraction, which includes seven unique tracks for racing. Among the courses are the slower Family Track for parents and small kids and the more daring Fast Track and Speed Racer layouts for the more daring teens and tweens.

In addition to the racing action, Broadway Grand Prix features the popular Sky Coaster ride that gives passengers the thrill of flight and freefall. There are kiddie rides for the little ones, as well as two 18-hole mini-golf courses for those who prefer to putt than drive. A giant arcade features the latest interactive video games.

Broadway Grand Prix offers guests the option of buying individual ride tickets or purchasing an all-day pass with unlimited rides. Packages are also available for a limited number of ride tickets and a meal from the on-site snack bar. Broadway Grand Prix is also available for birthday parties and group functions.
