Where to Find Live Music in Myrtle Beach

myrtle beach hotels with water parksWhile many may not consider Myrtle Beach a music hotbed, our live local and regional music scene is exponentially growing. With dozens of locales to discover new artists and rediscover old favorites, Sands Resorts should be your next coastal South Carolina getaway headquarters. Sand Dunes Resort is king among Myrtle Beach hotels with water parks, and Sands Ocean Club and Beach Club are a short walk away from Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar. Throw on a band tee, grab an ice-cold beer, and seek these local music halls for an entertaining evening of live music.

Rock and Roll at the House of Blues

Co-founded by actor Dan Aykroyd, the House of Blues is a Barefoot Landing staple. While it’s unlikely you’ll be hearing any blues at this venue, a memorable night of hard rock awaits. This unique, two-story concert venue sees a large number of rock bands, spanning generations, including Seether, Blues Traveler, Marilyn Manson, Puddle of Mudd, Steel Panther, and Gwar. Rappers Pusha T and Lil Xan will also be performing later this year. The tribute bands are just as popular. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a Tom Petty, Dave Matthews, Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael Jackson, Johnny Cash, or Stevie Wonder tribute band. These artists are as close to the real thing as you can get. The House of Blues not only has nightly entertainment, but their jambalaya, baby back ribs, sliced brisket, and fried chicken is to-die-for.

Beach Music at Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar

For an entirely different concert experience, Sands Ocean Club guests can walk 10 feet to Myrtle Beach’s premier beach bar experience at Ocean Annie’s. Nearby Sands Beach Club is also a scenic three-minute beach walk from a specialty cocktail and hot summer jams. Our talented cover bands play Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Journey, Guns and Roses, Little Big Town, and many more. There’s nothing better than free live music steps away from a cozy accommodation.

Local Favorites Worth Checking Out

If you’re in the Murrells Inlet area south of town, stop by Dead Dog Saloon for daily live music and the best fish tacos on the coast. Two miles south of Sand Dunes Resort, chief among Myrtle Beach resorts with water parks, you’ll find Bourbon Street Bar & Grille. Bourbon Street is a local favorite because of their nightly entertainment and food and drinks specials. The supergroup Alabama performed six nights a week in 1973 at The Bowery. Alabama mostly covered Lynyrd Skynyrd and Merle Haggard during their stint at this oceanfront bar.

Myrtle Beach hotels with water parks are few and far between. Your family can gain free access to Sand Dunes Resort Waterpark by staying in any of our four Myrtle Beach resorts. Consult our packages and specials for up-to-the-minute discounts on week-long and mid-week stays!

Planning Your 3-Day Summer Stay at Sands

Filtering through hundreds of Myrtle Beach resorts can be maddening, so we’re thrilled you chose Sands Resorts for your next coastal South Carolina escape! To help alleviate the headache of planning a three-day trip at our boisterous resorts, we’ve come up with recommendations for your upcoming much-needed vacation. A day in Myrtle Beach is incomplete, quite frankly, without an afternoon at Sands Resorts Waterpark. You’ll also be spending hours on our stunning beach, in our freshwater pools, and in the vast, cerulean blue Pacific.

Day 1: Relax and Splash at the Waterpark

Relax and splash without the annoyance of long lines, sky-high prices, and overcrowded common areas. The Sands Resorts Waterpark is perfect for families of all ages, but this paradise will also bring the kid out of every adult. Drift through the lazy river, whiz down a waterslide, or cool off in a waterfall pool—there’s no wrong way to spend an afternoon at this complimentary waterpark. Other Myrtle Beach resorts cannot compete with our drive to provide ultimate happiness to each guest. The waterpark also has an aquatic treehouse, a kiddie-pool playground, and a bubble pool for the little ones.

Day 2: Sun, Sand, and Sea

Dedicate your second day to the warm South Carolina sunshine, flawless beaches, refreshing freshwater pools, saltwater sea, and late afternoon adventure. Start your morning with a dive into our clean, enticing freshwater oasis, a specialty cocktail at Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar, and an hour under the sun on the beach. After a restful nap, slink into the Pacific for a rejuvenating soak. Before heading out on an adventure, build your best sandcastle. Conclude day two with a kayak or SUP rental or by embarking on a four-hour fishing charter. Stop at Oceanside 74 Restaurant & Lounge for mouthwatering blackened tilapia and grilled swordfish.

Day 3: Brunch Before Departure

One of life’s great trials is returning home after a vacation. Instead of packing up and racing back home, leave Myrtle Beach with a memorable brunch at Sands. Dino’s Oceanfront Cafe, inside our Ocean Dunes Resort, is always serving buttery and tart blueberry pancakes, plump omelets, and the best steak and eggs in South Carolina. Window’s Oceanfront Restaurant at Ocean Club has an exuberant breakfast buffet if you’re feeling ravenous.

Sands Resorts not only is your summer recreation headquarters, but we have charming, modern guest rooms, suites, townhouses, villas, and penthouses all along the shoreline. Our premier accommodations are chief among all Myrtle Beach resorts.

Glass Kayaking: The New Must-Try Water Activity

Summer beach season is upon us. Coastal South Carolina is flush with enlivened families and couples from all over the globe visiting Sands Resorts’ Myrtle Beach Waterpark at Sand Dunes Resort. Convincing you to spend one afternoon away from our waterpark will be difficult. The waterpark is free for guests–yes, you read that right. A new Myrtle Beach craze, however, is blossoming on the surrounding rivers, marshes, and beaches: glass kayaking.

Glass Kayaking is For Everyone

The idea is simple: create a transparent kayak so adventurers can see into the clear waters below. The 21st century sure is fun! The idea was simple, but the creation was complicated. Glass kayaks, sometimes called clear or transparent kayaks, are frequently made from the same material as bulletproof glass. These modern marvels also feature a UV layer to keep the glass from yellowing and your skin from burning. The frame is anodized aluminum, which in layman’s terms is a protective layer that prevents the kayak from being susceptible to breaking. The glass has an imported Lexan film, a high-tech polymer to make the vessel smooth, durable, easy to handle and soft.

Being able to look down into the Atlantic Ocean is a dynamic thrill. The most inexperienced individual can pick up the sport in nearly an instant in these kayaks built for all skill levels. Glass Bottom Kayak Tours is the lone Myrtle Beach adventure company to offer glass kayak rentals and tours. Tours start at an astoundingly low rate of $25 per person. Take a glass kayak tour of Cherry Grove Salt Marsh or Wacammaw River, or try the Waites Island Kayak Shelling Tour. The tours last up to 3 ½ hours, are family friendly, and professionally guided. Tandem kayaks are available, and remember to make reservations online.

The Best Myrtle Beach Waterpark

After a spectacular afternoon of glass kayaking through a nature preserve, saltwater marsh, and shelling on the beach, head back to Sands Resorts Waterpark. Don’t worry about long lines, high admission prices, or long drives–the waterpark is just steps away from your cozy guest room. This Myrtle Beach waterpark offers speedy waterslides, waterfall pools, an aquatic treehouse, lazy river, bubble pool, and prime sunbathing. Come for the area’s adventure, and stay for Sands’ exciting waterpark and incredible amenities!

We know that even though the temperatures will be a little milder this winter, you will still want to enjoy a day at the beach. Also, if you choose not to relax, we recommend hunting for seashells. As the beaches tend to be quieter this means there is plenty of room for searching through the sand for that perfect shell. It’s also not a wrong time to perfect your sandcastle skills! Bring some shovels and pails and get to building the best sandcastle. We think festive designs like a sand-man, which is similar to snow-man, but made entirely out of sand is an excellent way for a family bond during vacation!
