The Great Indoors of Broadway at the Beach

We've all heard the saying; April showers bring May flowers. Sure, the saying helps us to see the brighter results of those rainy days, but it's safe to say, most of us still get a little bummed out as the rain clouds roll in and our plans of sitting in a beach chair along the Myrtle Beach shore are washed away.

However, when Mother Nature isn't cooperating with our planned beach days, there's no reason to stay walled up at home or in your hotel room as Broadway at the Beach offers several indoor attractions where you can explore the depths of the ocean or go beyond the limits of earth!

At Ripley's Aquarium, experience the Sea-for-Yourself Discovery Center, an interactive, multimedia playground for visitors of all ages as well as explore the creatures of the dangerous reef and the 750,000-gallon shark tank! But it's not all about the sharks; you can even pet stingrays, be eye to eye with sea turtles and watch as mermaids perform live!

When passing storms put a damper on your afternoon by the shore, there's another option for indoor adventures at Broadway. From a 360 degree, virtual roller coaster, to lying on a bed of 3,500 nails to maneuvering the controls of a NASA spacecraft to standing up against hurricane force winds, WonderWorks has it all and then some!

You can also escape Mother Nature all together with a group of friends at Backstage Escape Games or navigate your way through the 2,000 square feet Backstage Mirror Maze! And for some of us less than active folks, you can always stay dry as you watch the latest flicks at the Big D Theatre and Carmike Cinemas Broadway 17!

So in the midst of sprinklings and showers, there's no reason to let Mother Nature rain on your parade as you explore the great indoors of Broadway at the Beach!

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. Whether we like it or not, it will happen. Whether we are ready for it or not, it will happen. It's the day when we lose an hour of sleep and the day we have an excuse for that third trip to Starbucks before noon. Okay, this is sounding negative, so let's try again.

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. It's the day the sun begins to shine a little longer. It's the day we unofficially say goodbye to the winter woes. It's the day we spring forward into a new season. It's daylight savings time!

The annual chore of putting away the sweaters and coats and pulling out the sandals and sun dresses can be made more enjoyable when adding a few new stylish pieces from Denim Exchange and Bijuju and grabbing a new pair of designer shades from Sunglass Hut! Don't forget, a new ensemble isn't complete until you step into the season with a new pair of Crocs or by stopping by Rack Room Shoes to lace up a new pair of running shoes.

There's another way to let go of the winter blues at Broadway.

Grab a seat, sip on something sweet and take in the warmer season at one of our dining hotspots that feature outdoor seating!

Before and after getting a picture with Spiderman and our community heroes, children can participate in a variety of kid-friendly games and interactive activities.
