Keep reading to learn why July 4th getaways to Myrtle Beach have become commonplace for families across the East Coast.

A Free Myrtle Beach Water Park

First and foremost, Sands Resortsfree Myrtle Beach water park is a rare perk that your kids will absolutely love. Spend your afternoons floating along the lazy river, anxiously waiting underneath a giant water bucket, and blasting down slippery waterfalls this Independence Day. When your family has had their fill of our exciting Myrtle Beach water park, if that’s even possible, head over to the Family FunZone inside the newly-renovated North Shore Oceanfront Hotel. The Family FunZone features classic arcade games, an indoor pool, a black-light mini golf course, and so much more!

Fireworks High Above Barefoot Landing

This popular, family-friendly hub is also home to the best fireworks display in the city. Gaze toward the cloudless sky as fireworks crackle high above the Intercoastal Waterway. Broadway at the Beach, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, and the Second Avenue Pier will also have firework displays, just not on the Fourth.

Family-Friendly Parades

It wouldn’t be Independence Day without a parade filled with large American flags, unique floats, and free treats. The two premier parades in the Myrtle Beach area are the Murrells Inlet Boat Parade and Pawleys Island 4th of July Parade. Both of these annual events are huge draws for locals and vacationers alike. The main event is the boat display along the marsh walk in nearby Murrells Inlet where you’ll observe dozens of patriotic vessels filled with enthusiastic boaters. If you’re looking for a traditional yet still unique parade, head down to Pawleys Island for one of the only golf cart parades in the country. Over 100 golf carts, as well as trucks and hauled boats, will coast down Myrtle Avenue past thousands of eager bystanders.

Beach Fun and Tasty Eats

Unlike most July 4th getaways, your family will have unlimited access to several miles of pristine beaches. Go swimming, build a sandcastle, read a novel, fly a kite, and sunbathe under the golden sun this year instead of sweating near a scorching grill! All of Sands Resorts’ Myrtle Beach hotels are steps from the Atlantic Ocean’s white, sandy shores. Trade your apron, oven mitts, and spatula for an appetite this year. Enjoy beach cocktails at Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar, wood-fired pizza at Oceanside 74, or juicy burgers at Eli’s Oceanfront Cafe.
