If you’re reading this article, chances are you — or someone you’re planning to travel with — is a sports fan.
Always optimistic about your chances in the next big game, you rarely go a day without checking some kind of stats or comparing notes with your coworkers. Talking trash about the “other guys” just comes natural. And if we were to look up “loyalty” in the dictionary, we’d find a picture of your face because you can defend any move your favorite player or coach makes (no matter how bad it really was.)
Sports enthusiasts, welcome to Myrtle Beach! It’s easy to see why we are emerging as a sports tourism destination:
1) Catch a live Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball game.
The league may be minor, but a Pelicans game at Ticketreturn.com Field across the street from Broadway at the Beach is always major fun! Free parking, cheap tickets, classic food and a family-friendly atmosphere make these games a win for all who attend.
2) Attend a Big South Championship basketball game.
The Grand Strand’s Coastal Carolina University will host this all-important and highly competitive tournament for both men and women’s playoffs through 2015. Come cheer on your college team!
3) Perfect your golf swing.
Golfers, listen up. With over 100 quality courses, Myrtle Beach offers such a wide variety of championship and specialty courses that it’s not hard to see why some call us “The Golf Capital of the World.” Learn more.
4) Satisfy your need for speed.
Since it’s opening in 1958, the Myrtle Beach Speedway has hosted many generations of some of the biggest names in racing history. Whether you’re interested in watching a live race, or taking a test drive of your own through the NASCAR Racing Experience, this is the place to be!
5) Play in the surf and sand.
The 60 miles of sand along Myrtle Beach provides many opportunities to participate in waterside sports yourself, including beach volleyball, Frisbee, surfing, swimming, paddle boarding, boogie boarding and skim boarding. Start a pickup game or learn something new!
