Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is a beautiful destination year-round. Although the weather is usually excellent, there are still rainy days. These days are needed to water flora and fauna and cool down the area. April is fast approaching, and during this time, Myrtle Beach gets its fair share of rain. Don’t let rainy weather bring you down or keep you from exploring. Don’t hesitate to book a stay with us because there are still several things to do when it rains. Check out the activities below and start planning your next beach getaway. There are activities for families with children and plenty of activities for adults vacating without children. No matter what you choose to do, you will make memories to last a lifetime.
Hollywood Wax Museum
The Hollywood Wax Museum is fun for the whole family. You can pose with favorite movie stars, luminaries, Hollywood royalty, and even Nascar champs. Take fun pictures with your favorite celebrities. The fun starts as soon as you pull up to the museum, which can be seen from miles around. On top of the building is a 40,000-pound Great Ape reminiscent of King Kong. Become starstruck as you pose with lifelike wax figures of the celebrities you have always wanted to meet. There are prop stations that add quirky charm to your photos. Props include microphones, hats, tiaras, and more. You’ll feel like you’re on the red carpet and attending a movie premiere in Hollywood instead of vacationing in Myrtle Beach. The wax figures have been described as “amazingly well done.” Visit the website to find out ticket prices and group rates.
Big Air Trampoline Park
Big Air is fun for the whole family and a place where you can bounce off walls. There are jumping surfaces that include trampoline dodgeball courts, launch pads, and climbing walls.

For $20 per ticket, visitors have access to all Big Air attractions. There are also Toddler Time events on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am-1 pm. No older kids are allowed, and your little one can play at their own pace. You can even have birthday parties and corporate events at Big Air.
WonderWorks is one of the best things to do in Myrtle Beach. WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind and combines education and entertainment with over 100 hands-on exhibits. Your world is turned upside down before you even enter the building, because the WonderWorks building appears to be upside down. Experience hurricane-force winds in the extreme weather zone. Take the astronaut training challenge in the space discovery zone. Strike a pose and discover what your shadow really looks like in the light and sound zone. Smaller children will enjoy the giant lite-brite exhibit, the dig-it sandbox, and gear works. Experience all this and much more when you visit WonderWorks, located at Broadway at the Beach.
