How To Keep Cool During The Dog Days Of Summer
When the breezes drift inland from the ocean, Myrtle Beach is one of the best places to be, no matter what the thermometer says. Our sea breezes blow inward for miles, giving us a lot more places to cool down than just the ocean's edge.
Whether you're in search of more water options to refesh your body or frozen treats to cool your inner self, the selections around Broadway at the Beach are second to none.
With shops and restaurants surrounding a 23-acre lake, the ocean breeze is supplemented by gentle winds drifting off that inland body of water. This makes lunch on a restaurant deck or hanging out on one of our bridges and feeding the fish, reinvigorating as well as relaxing.
Feel a need for speed and bracing sprays of water blowing back your hair? Hop on board one of our Beach Rider Jet Boats and experience a roller coaster on the water. Or, if your style is more laid back, just kick off your flip flops and have a splashing good time chilling out in our Interactive Fountain with its dancing and jumping water jets.
Imagine 1.2 million gallons of family fun just waiting for you with pools, water slides and lazy rivers. Discover Myrtle Waves Water Park, South Carolina's Largest Water Park. Splash in the wave pool or float on a tube. Enjoy 22 slides, pools and play areas, or relax under a private cabana and watch the kiddies splash in the children's play areas.
Does a day in the sun have you longing to sip an old fashioned fresh-squeezed lemonade? Head for The Fudgery, with two locations at Broadway. While fudge is the specialty of these shops, they are also great places to find lemonade, a refreshing hand-dipped apple, and even some ice cream.
In fact, ice cream is all around Broadway at the Beach with different flavors and different styles to tempt your taste buds.
We have two locations (north and south) of Ben & Jerry's, so you never have to walk too far to find your Americone Dream™ or enjoy favorites like the nuttiest chocolatey-chunkiest concoction-gone-bananas, Chunky Monkey®. Or reach for the minty refreshment of Empower Mint™.
If you like your ice cream custom-made, then head for Cold Stone Creamery. You'll discover super-premium ice cream made fresh. Select a flavor and a variety of mix-ins, then enjoy the show as a crew member blends your choices together on a frozen granite stone.
Love the rich, creamy goodness of frozen custard? This delight is subtly different from ice cream because it's graced with just a touch of egg yolk. You can find this delightful concoction at Kohr Family Homemade. In addition to the specialty of the house, frozen custard, make time to sample the scrumptious milkshakes, unique custard sandwiches, and other dessert items.
After a morning in the surf and sand, refresh yourself at Broadway at the Beach!
