What are Fun, Free things To Do in Myrtle Beach?

Fall vacations in Myrtle Beach are very different from a summer getaway here.

It can be every bit as awesome, though. Lots of attractions you love are open year-round. And they’re different in Autumn, with cooler temperatures and smaller crowds than peak season in Myrtle Beach.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on a Myrtle Beach escape this fall. Instead, save some money to have a great dinner out while you’re here!

It’s fun to see what value you can get on a trip like this. Especially if you have kids, there are plenty of things that they enjoy that don’t have a big price tag. Couples love fall in Myrtle Beach, too, because you can focus on the time you’re together, and not on what you’re spending. And it doesn’t cost a thing to walk along the shore!

Fun and free activities in Myrtle Beach

Visit Barefoot Landing

In North Myrtle, you could easily spend a day at Barefoot Landing. It has shops, dining, and entertainment – but is also a nice walk as you peruse the storefronts. Along the Intracoastal Waterway, this complex features a fun, social-distance friendly calendar of events, too.


Visit Broadway at the Beach

Stop and feed the fish along the boardwalk in the heart of Myrtle Beach. It’s also a wonderful spot for an evening walk with the family, under the lights, with plenty of benches to rest a bit and take it all in. You’ll see lots of happy folks, and who can blame them?


Check out Goat Island at the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk

Goats stay here until November to clear the brush. They share the space with ducks, peacocks, and pelicans. Legend has it this was once a popular pirate hangout. With plenty of restaurants on the Marsh Walk nearby, it’s a perfect spot for a pre-dinner visit.


Visit The Market Common

Joggers will love getting their run on at Market Common. It’s an active, friendly community with residential property as well as window-shopping worthy storefronts and restaurants. Dog-friendly, too, with doggie water fountains!


Visit the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade

A fairly new addition to the Myrtle Beach scene, the Boardwalk & Promenade is an awesome place for a beach experience without getting sand in your shoes! It’s a 1-mile walk. Dogs are welcome after Labor Day. Plenty of awesome spots for selfies, too.


Visit the Pier at Garden City

Catch a gorgeous ocean view with live music in the evening. This iconic place in Myrtle Beach holds wonderful memories for some visitors and will be the site for others’ too. Cast a line from the pier, if that’s your thing. There are even cutting tables and sinks for your catch.


Have fun for free in Myrtle Beach

A vacation can sometimes be stressful. That sounds counterintuitive, but when you factor in travel, lodging expenses, worry over the pandemic … there’s a lot to process. It’s important to find things that relieve your stress, and finding fun in Myrtle Beach without spending a fortune definitely qualifies for that!
