If there’s one thing Brittain Resorts & Hotels knows how to do is to create the ultimate Myrtle Beach family vacation. From oceanfront resorts filled with lazy rivers, water slides and giant pools to thrilling attractions, award-winning dining, and non-stop entertainment. Brittan Resorts strives to make each vacation experience unique. The Grand Strand is not only a top vacation destination, it has everything needed to combine fun and learning!
Take it Outside
Myrtle Beach is best known for its year-round mild weather and days filled with plenty of sunshine — making it possible to plan outdoor educational activities any season. Combing the outside with learning nature, Brookgreen Gardens is a botanical garden that’s home to a variety of sculptures, a lowcountry zoo, children’s discovery room with interactive stations for ages four to 12, and even a children’s nature and sensory trail. Myrtle Beach State Park offers bird watching, a beach perfect to find shells, and trails like Sculptured Oak Nature Trail, perfect for self-led scavenger hunts. Huntington Beach State Park is teeming with coastal wildlife that you can learn about from a naturalist in their Coastal Exploration program. Make sure to take a self-guided audio or docent-led tour of Atalaya, a national historic landmark.
Get Up Close & Personal
Although you can see tons of Myrtle Beach wildlife in its natural habitat, at Myrtle Beach’s own Ripley’s Aquarium you can immerse yourself in a world of colorful marine life while pursuing exhibits and interactive zones that explain all about the creatures who call the ocean home while protecting and conserving the ocean’s environment. Alligator Adventure is the reptile capital of the world and the perfect spot to get up close and personal with a variety of species — birds, snakes, alligators, crocodiles and more. Enjoy live shows where you can watch alligator feedings and even hold a snake! And, if you can’t fit everything into one day, no problem, the second day is free! Other exciting, entertaining and educational must-see attractions are Fun Warehouse, EdVenture Children’s Museum and Wonderworks.
