Weird & Offbeat Attractions in Myrtle Beach

When people think of popular Myrtle Beach attractions, the first things that come to mind are probably the beach (of course), the SkyWheel, Broadway at the Beach, or the Boardwalk. And these are all really great attractions, don’t get us wrong! But for those of you who are looking to experience some of Myrtle’s off-the-beaten-path offerings, here’s what you should visit:

Tommy, The “World’s Largest Crab”

Found atop the Giant Crab Gourmet Seafood Buffet is Tommy, a 25-foot tall, 35-foot wide, 4.5 ton smiling crab saluting customers as they enter. Stop and take a picture; it’s a great addition to your vacation scrapbook!

Bachelorette Party Ideas in Myrtle Beach

 Myrtle Beach is a unique city in that no matter what stage of life you're in, it offers plenty of activities to keep you busy! Whether you're hosting your bachelorette party or just wanting to do a "Girls-Only" trip, the entertainment options are virtually limitless! Spend the day lounging in the sun on the beach, but once the sun goes down, that’s when the festivities begin! Here are a few of our favorite places to visit that aren’t too far from our Surfside Beach vacation rentals:

Murrells Inlet:

Start with dinner at Graham’s Landing for delicious fresh oysters and a killer waterfront view or Wicked Tuna for fresh sushi and Asian-inspired fare. After dinner, take a stroll on the boardwalk and create your own “pub crawl” by stopping at the different little bars along the way. Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to party it up til the wee hours of the morning at the outdoor bar and live music at Hot Fish Club, great view and frozen drinks at Bubba's Love Shack, or upscale cocktails and tiki bar at Wahoo’s!

Myrtle Beach:

When it comes to dinner in Myrtle Beach, there are hundreds of options to choose from. We recommend the prime rib or the crab cakes at Flamingo Grill, or the filet mignon at New York Prime if you’re feeling fancy. For dessert, splurge on some chocolate fondue at the Melting Pot. After dessert, take a short drive to Skywheel Myrtle Beach and take a night ride (they’re open til 11). Then, grab a taxi to Broadway at the Beach and dance it up at Revolutions or Malibu Surf Bar, or take in the dueling pianos at Crocodile Rocks. If you’re a night owl, try Club There on 8th Ave, as they stay open so you can get your dancing on until 6:00 am!

Ranked the #1 attraction in Myrtle Beach on TripAdvisor, the Myrtle Beach Safari is an exciting interactive exhibit that's perfect for kids and adults of all ages! As educational as it is fun, you'll enjoy spending hours interacting with and learning about wildlife, such as tigers, elephants, and more! There are 2 ways to experience The Myrtle Safari (aka T.I.G.E.R.S. or The Institute for Greatly Endangered or Rare Species):
