The best Myrtle Beach vacations start right here at Kingston Resorts, your home base for fun and entertainment by the ocean and the best the region has to offer. Here are our five must-see attractions to visit while staying at Kingston Resorts.
You won’t have to go far to find this top Myrtle Beach attraction. The all-new Currents Seaside Entertainment offers fun for the whole family. Two waterparks, an outdoor pool with ocean views, close to an incredible restaurant showcasing the best local fare in a seaside setting, lawn games, daybeds, and more — there’s a lot to do here! Currents Seaside Entertainment is open daily and available exclusively to Kingston Resorts guests. It features two waterparks, one for big kids and one that’s perfect for younger guests. You’ll also have exclusive access to our new outdoor pool with ocean views, alongside 10 daybeds and 26 cabanas available to rent.
Black Drum Brewing is the hottest new restaurant where Myrtle Beach locals and Kingston Resorts guests hang out for good times and great food. The entire menu is Carolina born and brewed, while all 40 beers on tap come from the states of North and South Carolina. House-smoked meats, the freshest seafood, small plates, and fresh pizzas make this restaurant an impressive location. If you like music, this is the place to be on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 6pm to 9pm as local musicians play on the patio. Discover the best of the Carolinas all under one roof.
A hub of all things shopping and entertainment, Broadway at the Beach features more than 80 different shops and boutiques. Choose your way to explore land, water, and sky with seven go-kart tracks, jet boats, and helicopter rides. Want a little less movement? Take a seat and watch a performance at Broadway Theater, check out the world-famous live tribute shows at Legends in Concert, or watch the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (an affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) play baseball at the ballpark.
Round up your own crew of pirate enthusiasts and discover the treasure of Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show in Myrtle Beach. Eat like a king with a four-course feast that includes swashbucklin’ sugar-cured ham, buccaneer bread, and half o’ roasted cackler (that’s chicken in pirate speak) while Crimson and Sapphire pirate crews battle on land and on the full-sized pirate ships in this indoor tropical lagoon. Does a young member of your crew want to join Captain Blackbeard? For an additional fee, kids can be recruited to the show as either pirates or mermaids for an experience they’ll always remember.
A classic Myrtle Beach family adventure includes hopping on a 100-foot Ferris wheel and getting a bird’s-eye view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Grand Stand. Family Kingdom amusement park has more than 35 rides offering that perfect mix of thrill and chill. Feel the cool splash while on the log flume water ride, let out a scream on the Twist’n Shout steel roller coaster, or take a gentle cruise on the Kiddie Coaster. New rides open every year, adding a new flavor to your favorite vacation activities.
Who says you can’t turn back time? A trip to Medieval Times transports friends and family back to the 11th century, where knights from across the kingdom joust to determine the victor to protect the throne. This immersive experience in Her Majesty’s Castle begins with a Call to Table in the Grand Ceremonial Arena, followed by a four-course feast, and then a two-hour tournament of jousting, sword fighting, and more. Before you take a seat, you’re given a crown with a color, determining which knight you’re supporting in the tournament. We’ve heard the louder you cheer, the more likely your combatant will be victorious. After a journey back in time, you’ll have memories and stories to share well into the future.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Myrtle Beach that you won’t find anywhere else. Book your stay at Kingston Resorts as your home base for your next getaway. There’s so much to see and do on our property, and we’re conveniently located near the best attractions along the Grand Stand.
