Parasailing in Myrtle Beach: The Thrill of a Lifetime

It should come as no surprise that the best view of Myrtle Beach comes from the sky. Whether it’s atop the SkyWheel or inside a helicopter, there’s something magical about scanning the gorgeous Grand Strand high in the air. Perhaps our favorite method of aerial “exploration” here at Sands Resorts is an exhilarating parasailing expedition. Parasailing in Myrtle Beach is among the most popular midday activities for families, groups, and couples alike, especially for travelers with a thirst for adventure. When you’re not relaxing on the beach, visiting the area’s top attractions, and fishing in the Gulf Stream, we hope that you strap in for a trip into the sky!

  2. Go parasailing high above the ocean’s surface with our good friends at Atlantic Watersports, the most trusted name in the industry.

Myrtle Beach Getaway: 5 Reasons to Visit the Horry County Fair

Myrtle Beach resortsFamilies are always looking for some late-afternoon or evening family-friendly fun while vacationing here in beautiful Myrtle Beach. While we encourage our guests to spend as much time as possible at the free Sands Resort Waterpark and our pristine white sand beaches, the entire family will undoubtedly have the time of their lives at the annual Horry County Fair. The Horry County Fair is entering just its fourth year at Myrtle Beach Speedway, which may surprise some. This growing event gets bigger and better every year as they continue to expand and innovate. Sands Resorts, one of the largest oceanfront Myrtle Beach resorts, is an easy 11-mile drive from Myrtle Beach Speedway, so the kids won’t have to wait too long for tasty fair food, exhilarating rides, and amusing entertainment. Here are five reasons why you need to visit the Horry County Fair this April.

Reasons to Visit the Horry County Fair

1. Unlimited Ride Bands – Ride bands can cost a small fortune at most state and county fairs, but the Horry County Fair is known for their inexpensive prices. For just $25 per person, you can hop aboard as many rides as your heart desires. The Ferris Wheel is a popular ride after dark as the fairgrounds become a beautiful meld of bright colors and flashing lights with the heartwarming sounds of laughter. The “Cliffhanger” was a crowd-favorite ride last year, as well as the Sky Flyer, Zero Gravity, and Musik Express.

2. Pig Races – The Horry County Fair is becoming known for their exciting and amusing pig races. These intelligent and highly-sociable pigs aren’t your average hogs. The nail-biting races are often one of the main highlights for youngsters and adults alike.

3. The Food – It’s nearly impossible to visit any type of fair without trying at least one rare delicacy. Word of mouth usually spreads around the fairgrounds about which unique concoctions are worth a try. The red velvet funnel cake and fried Oreos were hits last year, but you’ll always be able to find homemade corn dogs, loaded fries, tasty cotton candy, and an abundance of wild creations.

4. Character Meet and Greets – There aren’t many things that could pull your kids away from our kid-friendly Myrtle Beach resorts, but the opportunity to meet a beloved television character is one. Pose for photos with Darth Vader, the Paw Patrol, Olaf Snowman, and Mickey Mouse in-between carnival rides!

5. Petting Zoo – The petting zoo at the Horry County Fair gets bigger and better each year. The baby goats are always a hit for the kids, as are the massive camels. You’ll also be able to meet friendly pigs, large cattle, and even a small colony of dogs from the Grand Strand Humane Society who are in need of a home.
