Best ATV Tours around Myrtle Beach
Why walk when you can four-wheel it?
Fans of the all-terrain vehicle know this mantra all too well – and also that most places an ATV can go, sneaker-clad feet probably shouldn’t, right?
The Grand Strand has some great spots for four-wheeling, and even better companies to help you make it happen. Here are some suggestions:
Carolina Backwoods ATV Adventures
This outfit, which is located just over the border in North Carolina, posits one simple question for its potential ATV-ers: down and dirty or high and dry? The answer, of course, determines where your guide will take you and your group of no more than 10. Tours are about two hours protective gear is provided. Call ahead for more details.
About an hour outside of Myrtle Beach lies Nesmith, S.C., where this off-roading mecca sits. While ATV-ers vie for space with dirt bikes, Jeeps and dune buggies, riders have a good amount of freedom out here. Equipment rentals are available (adult ATV rentals are $150) as are lessons and guided group tours on their dozens of miles of property. If you really want to make an event of it, consider booking a campsite.
Carolina Adventure World
Ok, so this is more in the neighborhood of Columbia, S.C., rather than Myrtle Beach, but if you don’t mind a three-hour drive, consider it. This spot is as it sounds — a world of adventure — with more than 100 miles of trails and thousands of acres of muddy bogs, watery crossings and quiet woods — well, save for the hum of your motor. As with other companies, a large security deposit is required. But if you are safe, courteous and leave the hotdoggy stunt stuff for the video games, you’ll get every penny of that deposit back.
