What To Do In Myrtle Beach For Halloween

Myrtle Beach is being taken over by jack o' lanterns, candy corn, and plenty of spooky events for you and your family. We've put together a list of top attractions you aren't going to want to miss this October 31st. Happy Haunting!

Terror Under the Bridge Haunted House

The 2017 Terror Under the Bridge is called The Final Chapter because it's the last year this haunted house is putting on its production. You won't want to miss the final installment of one of Myrtle Beach's scariest attractions that has been scaring the community for over 10 years. Located in the X Gym sports mall, this haunted house isn't for the faint of heart. It's scheduled for October 20-22 and October 25-31 from 7pm-11pm. Admission is $14.00.

Ripley's Family Friendly Haunted Adventure

What's better than going in a haunted house? How about participating in one? The Ripley's Haunted Adventure gives you a laser gun to help you fight your way through this exciting attraction full of flesh-eating monsters. The Haunted Adventure is open Sunday-Thursday from 2pm-9pm and Friday-Saturday 2pm-10pm. It's suitable for ages 8 and up. Ticket prices are $14.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids.

Take a Walking Ghost Tour

Myrtle Beach and its surrounding towns has its share of creepy ghost stories. The best way to hear them all is by taking a walking tour. Every evening at 8pm, you can find a tour guide dressed in costume at 312 Ninth Ave North ready to educate you on some of Myrtle Beach's scariest history. In Murrell's Inlet, Miss Chris will guide you on an inlet walking tour where she will tell you tales of The Gray Man and Alice Fagg. Tours are held Wednesday-Sunday.

Nightmare Haunted House

For over 20 years, Nightmare Haunted House has been scaring Myrtle Beach tourists and residents alike with its presence on North Ocean Boulevard. Currently, the attraction is full of zombies ready to attack in the Undead Adventure. This attraction is open every day at noon and is $10 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and under.

Cooking at the beach!

While Myrtle Beach does have its fair share of delicious restaurants, sometimes nothing is better than a home-cooked meal after spending the day in the sun. Surfside Realty has many houses perfect for the chef of the family.

Crown Jewel is a particular favorite, with its large, open kitchen and tons of counter space. The oceanfront dining room completes a perfect backdrop for any family meal. Enjoy your dessert poolside or on the covered porch overlooking the beach. If you want to experience a truly southern meal, try your hand at making a Lowcountry Boil with fresh corn, shrimp, sausage, and potatoes.

There's no better house for a classic oyster roast than Manatee Mansion. The large kitchen inside is complimented by a gas grille and tiki bar adjacent to the private pool. Grab a shucker and enjoy grilled oysters poolside. There's plenty of outdoor seating for your family and friends, or you can enjoy the view from two of the large front porches.

Not sure where to buy ingredients? The Waccamaw Market Cooperative provides Farmer's Markets around town through the end of October. Grab snacks from a variety of vendors while you stock up on fresh produce from local farms. Artisans will be selling their unique crafts, so it's also a perfect place to pick up a souvenir from your trip.
