Father's Day at the Beach? Do These 5 Things

Ride a wave, build castles in the sand, and tee it up for mini-golf. They’re the right elements for a weekend away with Dad to celebrate Father’s Day. Especially when you find them all in Myrtle Beach — and at Breakers Resort. 


Honor Dad with a family retreat to your favorite vacation destination. Here are some excellent ideas for celebrating the big guy in your life.

Surfing in the Morning

Think your dad could graduate from surfing school in two hours? That’s all it takes to visit Jack’s Surf Lessons and Board Rentals. Book a two-hour, semi-private lesson with the pros at Jack’s for a truly memorable experience — and a skill to last a lifetime.


Where should you hang 10 after he (and you) have taken the course? Locals say these are spots to get amped over:

  • Holly Avenue in Garden City
  • 64th and 66th Streets North in Myrtle Beach
  • Springmaid Pier in Myrtle Beach

Build Sandcastles

What’s the fuss about building something out of sand that washes away in the surf? It’s the magic of building it anyway, and dads have mastered it over the years. Most fathers would love to take a pail, shovel, and imagination to the sand with their kids (or kids at heart.)


Give your royal home on the shore its most favorable chance with a 50/50 mix of sand and water. Have fun with it.

Play Some Mini-Golf

Playing with dinosaurs and pirates with a neon pink ball takes technique. While many know Myrtle Beach as the Golf Capital of the World, it’s also the Mini-Golf Capital of the World. And one of the area’s coolest courses is close to Breakers Resort, too.


Challenge Dad at Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf, along with Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and the pirates. This place features two 18-hole courses, and both are amazing!


Treat Him to a Brewery Visit

The toughest part is deciding which Grand Strand breweries to take Dad to. New South Brewing is a fun spot to hang out and sample some of the finest beers made in Myrtle Beach. It’s home to White Ale and Brown Nut Ale, which you might see on menus around town.


But the fun is trying something completely different. Raise a glass of New South IPA or Dirty Myrtle Double IPA for a great weekend.

Celebrate Dad With Dinner at New York Prime

Sometimes the most delightful Father’s Day present comes medium rare. New York Prime is a chic steakhouse serving aged steaks and seafood. Everything is delicious! Start with a sizzling thick-cut bacon appetizer. Then, it’s a Delmonico steak, aged 28 days and prepared Pittsburgh style.

Pan-roasted sea bass is also superb, served with a Negroni or Manhattan cocktail. Make reservations for your special evening at New York Prime.
