Father's Day is right around the corner, so now's the time to start planning that special day with your dad! If you don't have any ideas for what to do yet, don't worry; we have provided a list below that highlights many fun and special things to do with your dad for Father's Day this year. From dining to playing at the beach and much more, here are some ways to celebrate Father's Day in Myrtle Beach:


As the famous song "Bell Boy" by The Who goes: "The beach is a place where a man can feel he's the only soul in the world that's real." This Father's Day, take your father to the most popular attraction along the Grand Strand, the beach! Grab some chairs, an umbrella, and a couple of brews (if you're 21 or over) and lay back and relax under the South Carolina sun.


Challenge your dad to a round or two of bowling for Father's Day. There are several bowling alleys in the area that you can go to, but if you're looking for a unique bowling experience be sure to check out 710 North Myrtle Beach. 710 North Myrtle Beach is an entertainment center that is home to upscale bowling as well as tons of other games and a full-service restaurant and bar. The food here is anything but you're normal bowling alley food; 710 cooks up delicious gourmet menu items like lollipop lamb chops, mahi mahi, flatbread pizza, burgers and sandwiches, crab cakes, and much more.


Do you and your dad like to fish together? Then you're in the right place. The coast of the Grand Strand is home to many great fishing spots. Whether you choose to book a charter fishing boat, rent your own private boat, or go fishing from a pier, fishing can be a really great bonding activity that you and your father are sure to enjoy.


Fore! Book a tee time this Father's Day at one of the area's 100+ courses. You can spend the whole day with your father while playing a round of golf on a beautiful course, or you could opt to have some fun at one of the many miniature golf courses along the Grand Strand. Either way, we know you'll be competing to see who can get the lower score.

Grab a Bite to Eat

Everyone likes to eat tasty food, so why not treat your dad to a delicious meal for Father's Day? Myrtle Beach is known for being home to tons of great restaurants, so find a place that serves your dad's favorite type of food. Pig out on Mexican food, dive into a carnivore's dream at Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse, enjoy a show at a dinner theater like Medieval Times or Pirates Voyage, or go to a casual beach eatery like Peaches Corner. There are tons of great places to eat in Myrtle Beach, so have fun narrowing your choices down to just one place!

Helicopter Rides

If your father is the adventerous type, check out Helicopter Adventures or OceanFront Helicopters to see prices for scenic helicopter rides over Myrtle Beach. Dad will not only love the thrill of being in a helicopter, but he will also enjoy the unique perspective of the Grand Strand from high above. Fly above your father's favorite part of the Grand Strand by taking a helicopter tour with either of these companies on this special day.


Is your dad a self-proclaimed daredevil? Consider setting up a day at Broadway Grand Prix or the Myrtle Beach Speedway for a day of racing. Broadway Grand Prix boasts several go-kart tracks for a fun, casual racing experience, while Myrtle Beach Speedway takes things to the next level. The Myrtle Beach Speedway is home to the NASCAR Racing Experience where dad can drive a real NASCAR race car! Or, if he doesn't want to be behind the wheel, you can also book a NASCAR ride-along or a pace car ride for an awesome Father's Day gift.

Ropes Courses & Ziplines

Ropes courses and ziplines have been popping up all over the Grand Strand, but definitely for a good reason. Treat your dad to a unique adventure at a local ropes course and zipline park like Go Ape! in North Myrtle Beach. Here, you and your father can go through obstacle courses placed high up in the trees and fly through forests and over water on ziplines. You'll have a blast bonding with your dad and conquering the course together.


Father's Day falls during a pretty hot time of the year in Myrtle Beach, but don't fret; there are waterparks where you can cool off! Waterparks like Myrtle Waves and Wild Water and Wheels have waterslides, lazy rivers, wave pools, and more. Climb to the top of the highest slide, high-five your father, and take the plunge into the water below. Your dad will thank you for giving him such a "cool" Father's Day present.


This Father's Day, spend the day out on the water and have the time of your life doing different watersport activities with your dad. There are tons of watersports companies in town that offer enthralling activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking, sail boat rides, fishing, scuba diving, and more. Be sure to wear sunscreen, though, because your dad may want to spend the whole day having fun on the ocean.
