At the beach and in the Lowcountry – our name for this gorgeous area of South Carolina – we live for the outdoors. We are so fortunate that the place we call home offers such an abundance of year-round outdoor recreational possibilities right here in our backyard. This is one reason the locals were thrilled when Gander Mountain, one of the nation’s largest retailers of outdoor recreational equipment, opened a store in Myrtle Beach two years ago. Haven’t been? Especially if you’re an outdoors enthusiast, you should be sure and visit during your stay at Paradise Resort. You are sure to find something that can add some additional fun to your trip, and you’re likely to find something else you can enjoy back home or on your next mountain adventure, as well.

You’re at the beach. Water is everywhere. Just to name a few opportunities to get wet, we have the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway, the Waccamaw River, the inlet, marshes and, of course, countless swimming pools for splashing around and cooling off. You’re bound to want to jump in and have a little fun while you’re on vacation. Do it big and do it right – grab your swimming supplies at Gander Mountain. For those of you looking to partake in some water sports, you have to see the accessories available at Gander Mountain.

Along with the abundant water in our area, of course, comes fish – and where you have fish, you have fishing! Do your plans include a little time with a rod and reel?

Regardless of whether your plans call for saltwater or freshwater fishing, the experts at Gander Mountain are available to assist you in choosing the right gear and accessories for your specific needs.

You’re going to be at the beach and, like we’ve said, that means being outside. It gets hot around here, even in the offseason, so be prepared with chilled food and drinks with the right cooler.

You will also find Coleman, Igloo and PermaChill, all ready to be packed with your favorite foods and to cool off your favorite beverages.

Making plans for a fall or winter trip to the beach? The offseason does bring some cooler days and chillier evenings to the beach, and Gander Mountain is your place if you need to gear up with cool-weather clothing.

They even carry a wide assortment of raingear, which is always a great investment regardless of the season. Clothing sizes are for children through adults, so you can outfit the whole family.
