When it comes to finding fun things to experience on your family vacation this year, North Myrtle Beach is the place to visit. This is where you can experience lots of authentic family fun that is guaranteed to bring your family closer together rather than spread them further apart.
Leave all those electronic devices at home or back in where you’re staying, pack a picnic lunch and head out to the beach for the day. Once there, spread out your blanket on the sand, drop your gear, and designate this home base. Then together, as a family, start walking the beachfront looking for shells. Don’t forget your camera! The shelling in this area of coastal South Carolina is simply awesome and everyone is looking for the largest, most perfect shell they can find to commemorate this year’s vacation. Some people collect certain types of shells to take home and make crafts with or decorate their own gardens, while others just want a small memento as a keepsake.
An extra special way to capture this year’s family vacation for all time while having fun is to arrange to have a family beach portrait taken. There are a number of professional photographers in the Myrtle Beach area (like Kristopher Gerner) that would be delighted to arrange for a photo shoot with you and your family. They’ll provide you with everything you need to know to prepare. You can count on having a great photo of your family to hang on your wall at home.
Some of the most excitement you will ever have as a family can be had on private fishing charters. Whether you fish the inlets and marshes, inshore, or out in the deep waters of the Atlantic, you’re sure to bring home plenty of fish if you opt to keep them but catch-and-release is alright, too.
Charter companies like Fish Hook Charters and Hurricane Fleet offer half day and all day fishing trips on a variety of different size boats. If you’ve never fished before or think you can’t go because you don’t have the equipment, that’s not a problem. Many of the fishing charter companies will supply everything you need including a SC fishing license and will also provide complete instruction on how to fish. You can even count on them to help you reel that big one into the boat!
Ask about meals because you may want to bring your own but many charter companies can arrange for meals and beverages to be included in the cost of their chartered trips. Don’t forget your camera! You’ll want to take lots of pictures once everyone in the family has reeled in their catch of the day. This is one of those days that you will remember for the rest of your lives as being some of the most family fun you’ve ever experienced. We promise you that!
