A cruise through a lazy river is a highly-recommended activity while you're on vacation.

Depending on who’s in the water, sometimes they’re lazy, and other times they’re flat out crazy. That could be said about most aquatic activities on the Grand Strand, but here we’re talking about lazy rivers, those never-ending and free-flowing resort attractions.

The dimensions and settings vary from resort to resort, so here is a little bit of info on each to help you sort through the inner-tube options.

5200 North Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach SC 29577
A 250-foot lazy river is part of this resort’s indoor water park, which also features the area’s first adult-sized indoor waterslides. That’s right – the kid’s aren’t the only ones that get to have all the fun here. View Profile »  Visit Website

6900 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach SC 29572
