The 60th annual Sun Fun Festival will soon take place in Myrtle Beach on May 28, marking a great celebration in the city featuring several artistic performances for visitors. You’ll be treated to the amazing music of several young, up-and-coming artists as well as a “Meet ‘n’ Greet” with friendly people like Matthew Timmons, the actor from Suite Life on Deck, Jake T. Austin from Wizards of Waverly Place and Zendaya Coleman from Shake it Up. Let your kids shake the hands of these famous celebrities, and be sure to look for your favorite pieces of artistic work. Delicious cuisine will be on hand at the concession stands as well. If you’re planning on taking your summer vacation during this time, be sure to reserve your Myrtle Beach lodging and compare prices.
You can celebrate your relaxing time even further with a trip to the famous Myrtle Waves Waterpark, featuring a variety of great water rides, with 20 acres of attractions in all. This water park has everything from 10 story-tall water slides like Riptide and Turbo Twisters to the smaller, child-friendly Bubble Bay, which is about 18 inches deep at its maximum. Spark your child’s imagination while cooling off inside this great water park.
For an additional watery experience, you can reserve your tickets to the Ripley’s Aquarium, with a massive, 750,000 gallon tank inside, providing visitors with every possible sea creature they could imagine. Walk up close to the glass as you watch a 10 foot shark glide by, or look for the Pacific Giant octopus in the more tropical, Rio Amazon exhibit, which provides everything from sea horses to piranhas. Several other exhibits, such as the Ray Bay and Sea-For-Yourself Discovery Center are worth checking out as well on your aquarium excursion.
Remember the events of 9/11 by participating in Concert America out at the beautiful La Belle Amie Vineyard in the Myrtle Beach area. Show your patriotism alongside countless others to remember the events of this tragic yet monumental day when Americans were united in support toward families that had lost loved ones. The event is from 4-7 pm and there’s plenty of cooked cuisine at the barbecue pit, where you can pick up your tasty burger and drink a glass of delicious wine. Talented artists feature their paintings and other crafts, along with all kinds of entertainment. As you’re enjoying your stay in mid-September, you can pick out any of the available lodging.
There’s other great dinner shows in this eastern vacation area, such as the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament – Myrtle Beach, SC. The show features top stunts and performances that perfectly capture the Middle Ages environment, with six knights competing for the hand of a princess. Sit with your table around an arena and cheer for the knight that matches your table’s color and coat of arms. You’ll be served a gourmet meal of chicken and rib, soup, garlic bread and more.
Along with the performances of the Medieval Times, you may try Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, another fantastic dinner show with 32 well-trained horses that perform tricks and perfectly work in unison with each other. While you’re watching, you can chow down on a hearty four-course meal of rotisserie chicken, corn on the cob, specialty dessert and other dishes. The extravagant show has a little of everything, from hilarious comedy to stunning animal and professional trainer performances.
