Tips for Choosing a New Hobby

You could choose something strange (ever heard of tree shaping?) or a more common activity. Whatever you decide, here’s some advice for getting there.

  1. Consider the cost (or profit)
  • How much would it cost to maintain a butterfly house? Could you make money creating handcrafted goods? A hobby can be expensive or profitable.
  1. Recycle your childhood interests
  • Adulting can be tense. What did you enjoy before you had all these responsibilities? Painting, acting, flag football, and more are possibilities.
  1. Try something at home
  • Note: We’ve gotten used to doing more at home these days. You could learn to code, make your own soap, work out online, and more.

Check Out Your New Hobby for 2023 in Myrtle Beach

Looking for a new hobby that requires you to visit a particular place you happen to love? We thought so. Check out these Grand Strand favorites.

Take Up Surfing

This is a perfect example of a hobby you sort of NEED the beach to take up. Surfing is more popular than ever. You don’t have to be in California or Hawaii to achieve star status. If you’re ready to hang 10, head to Myrtle Beach.


RECOMMENDED: Give Jack’s Surf Lessons and Board Rentals a call. Their expert staff is trained to teach students of all skill levels.

Try Deep-Sea Fishing

You’re certain to have an adventure, even if you don’t get that trophy catch. The prospect of it is a powerful motivator. The Grand Strand is rich in delicious fish, too. Ever tried cobia?


RECOMMENDED: Check out Myrtle Beach Sport Fishing. Cast your line in the saltwater estuaries or the Gulf Stream. These memories last a lifetime.

Try Yoga on the Beach

Want to remain in your Zen state on vacation? It’s tough to beat the sound of ocean waves as you practice. Yoga on the beach offers a number of health benefits. Be sure to pack your mat and gear for your next beach trip.


RECOMMENDED: Take your mat to the beach, or visit Yoga in Common in Market Common. Join them for one of their incredible classes.


Try Sailing

It’s impossible to describe how free you’ll feel on the open sea, captaining your own boat. It takes learning to get to that level, but the lessons are also a blast. Sailing can inspire and teach attention, resourcefulness, and patience.


RECOMMENDED: Downwind Sails is the authority on sailing in Myrtle Beach. Visitors and locals have learned from them since they began in 1978.
