Off The Field – Things to Do for Groups and Sports Teams Visiting Myrtle Beach

By Brian Bedard • January 23, 2014

If you’re looking for a little playtime after the game or big event, you’re in the right city. The Grand Strand offers a variety of places and activities for a little “off the field” fun, perfect for both children and adults alike. Plus, miles of pristine beach mean you can always just kick your feet up and soak in the sunshine.

Ocean Boulevard
A walk down Ocean Boulevard offers endless possibilities to entertain the whole team! Along Ocean Boulevard are a wide array of souvenir shops, arcades, restaurants, funhouses and more. Encounter bizarre wonders of the world at The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum or soar high over the Atlantic Ocean on the Skywheel, the largest wheel ride on the East Coast.

Broadway at The Beach
A perfect day awaits at Broadway at the Beach, the Grand Strand’s most popular outdoor dining and entertainment venue. From specialty clothing shops and dining to speedboat rides, zip lining and miniature golf, the choices of group fun are practically endless.

Pelican’s Baseball Game
The Pelicans, Myrtle Beach’s very own minor league baseball team (the minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros) takes the field each week from April through September. Home games are both enjoyable and affordable, and often followed by awesome fireworks shows. Group sizes of over 10 are awarded discounted tickets as well as the group name displayed on the Pelican video board. Check out their spring schedule here.

Laser Tag
If you haven’t exhausted all of your energy on the field yet, bring the team to play Laser Tag. The Surf’s Up Family Fun Center is the largest laser tag arena in Myrtle Beach, equally accommodating to younger children and adults. Additional amenities include a rock climbing wall and video arcade. Tag – you’re it – go get ‘em champs!

Beach It
What better way to relax after a game than sinking your feet in the sand or cooling off with a dip in the ocean? The beach is only footsteps away from your hotel door.
