My Myrtle Beach Vacation: Day 5, Broadway On The Beach

 This is a continuation of a Travel Series of my vacation to Myrtle Beach.  To start at the beginning go HERE.  The rest of the posts,, in chronological order are  HERE  HERE ,  HERE,  HERE and HERE.

 On our last day at Myrtle Beach we spent the morning on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and the afternoon at Broadway on the Beach.  Broadway on the Beach is an entertainment, shopping, and restaurant district located only three miles from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.  It reminded me very much of Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida.

There was a large lake located right in the center, and the stores, restaurants, and entertainment buildings surround the lake and two bridges connect one side to the other on either end of the lake.

There were so many cute shops at Broadway on the Beach;  and many were quite affordable too!

Many of the gift shops had a Cape Cod style.

I loved these cute little dinosaurs advertising a dinosaur exhibit.

There were lots of fun rides for the kids or kids-at-heart.

This was my favorite store in South Carolina.  I visited two of them, one in The Market Commons and this one at Broadway on The Beach.  They had the cutest pieces.  I ended up buying two necklaces there.  The store reminded me of Francesca's.  They had very unique pieces at affordable prices.

This was the third Ferris Wheel I saw in Myrtle Beach.  The biggest one is located right on the Boardwalk, then there is another on Ocean Blvd, plus this one here.

This was the funnest building at Broadway On the Beach.  It's called Wonder Works.  We did not go inside so I can't tell you much about it other than it's an amusement ride of some sort.

Outside the Wonder Works building was this fun zip lines and ropes course.

The zip line went 50 feet above the water.  It looked so fun!

 The lake was filled with lots of hungry feet.  They had food you could buy to feed the ducks and fish.

This lake game looked super exciting.  They were large bubble that you could enter and then walk on water!

There were so many fun places to eat, like this Hard Rock Cafe which offered both inside and outside dining.  But beware, all the prices are slightly higher because your paying for the location and the ambiance.  We ended up waiting to eat to pay lower cost in a less touristy area.

I thought this restaurant looked really fun.

This boat ride looked like a blast.  The driver was so skilled and went so fast taking some really tight curves.

Even if you never buy a thing, or go to an attraction, or eat at a restaurant, Broadway On The Beach is so neat it is worth just walking around.  I loved the scenery, the unique fun buildings and attractions, window shopping, and watching other people on the rides.

The Ripley Aquarium is one of the main tourist attractions in Myrtle Beach and it is located at Broadway On The Beach.

This is a view of the Wonder Works as seen from the opposite side of the lake.

A view of one of the bridges.

We thought this castle looked really cool.  We liked the water features.  There was even fire bursting from the top.

The detail the architects and designers put into these attractions is amazing!

Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf looked like a fun place.  I love the Viking Ship.

A view of the Margaritaville Restaurant:   love the lighthouse!

And finally, I can't leave without including this picture.  I put it on Facebook with the quote "The one time in my life where I have the perfect body!"  Ha-ha!

Parking is free at Broadway On The Beach, and there was plenty of it!  If you have a few hours to spare, I highly recommend stopping in and taking a stroll around this property.  It really is quite fun, if only just to look around like we did.

Have a Great Day!  Amy

  6. We were in Myrtle Beach last summer and my boys LOVED Broadway at the beach! We ate at Margaritaville, checked out the Ripley's Aquarium, played miniature golf and enjoyed walking around. I too said it reminded me so much of Disney Springs.

    1. Oh, it sounds like you did a lot more than I did at Broadway on the Beach. All that stuff looked like so much fun; we certainly enjoyed walking around looking at it all!
