Paradise Resort has a perfect location along the Atlantic Ocean, offering amazing views, ocean breezes and relaxing fun.  Sandals Cafe will help you fuel your day with a great breakfast before heading out the the beach or pool.  And then when you get thirsty during the day, grab a cool drink at the Tiki Bar.  Maybe dance the afternoon away on the pool deck with our DJ party, but if you need help planning your other activities, we can help! 

We have put together a list of things to do depending on the type of vacationer you are, check them out.

All-Nighters: If you and your vacation crew are in celebration mode and want to party into the wee hours, Celebrity Square at nearby Broadway at the Beach – located just a mile up 29th Avenue North from The Strand – has plenty of options to choose from. Start your night early with some friendly competition at Dave & Buster’s, where the hundreds of gaming options on the Million Dollar Midway range from classics like Skee-Ball and Pop-A-Shot to the latest arcade hits like the 2018 version of Rampage, oversized versions of smartphone games like Fruit Ninja and Subway Surfers, and more. When you’ve played up a hunger, head to American Tap House for dinner and some craft brews. This gastropub features 40-plus U.S. craft brews on tap, as well as a full menu offering gourmet tacos, burgers, flatbreads, steaks, seafood and more. Next, snap up some musical fun at Crocodile Rocks Dueling Pianos, where a crew of professional pianists tickle the ivories to get the crowds rocking every night. And close out your night on the dance floor at Señor Frog’s, where the nightly fiesta ensures visitors will find some good times.

Families: Definitely the largest attraction in terms of size, and probably the biggest single draw for most family vacationers, the Atlantic Ocean and is an obvious reason people flock to the Grand Strand. And at The Cottages at North Beach Plantation, guests have easy access to the ocean and beach via a private boardwalk from our 2.5-acre oceanfront pool scape. Another big attraction that’s within easy reach — it’s located right across North Kings Highway from the resort — is the Barefoot Landing shopping, dining and entertainment complex. Here, families can catch dinner, a show and some shopping, all back to back and without leaving the complex. Another popular nearby spot for families is Pirates Voyage, located about 10 minutes south of the resort on North Kings Highway. Here, families can enjoy a four-course feast while watching the high-flying action as pirates fight over treasure on land, at sea and aboard ships.

Explorers: Got the urge to get out and about? Take a day trip to Myrtle Beach State Park, where educational opportunities, surf fishing and quiet stretches of oceanfront maritime forest await for adventure-seekers. A little farther south at Brookgreen Gardens, 9,000-plus acres of sculpture gardens, nature preserves, a zoo, a butterfly house and more are waiting to be explored. And for those ready to hit the waters, several area vendors offer boat rides and fishing expeditions along the Intracoastal Waterway or out into the Atlantic Ocean.

Hope this helps you plan your next trip to Myrtle Beach and Paradise Resort.  There is so much to do and see, just pick what type of vacation you are looking for and get ready to have som fun!
