5 Things to Do: North Myrtle Beach Family-friendly Attractions

See Tigers

You can even get your picture taken with a tiger! For safety of both animals and people, there are some rules families should know beforehand. Read the safari’s rules and schedule info.

Attend an Alligator Show

Play Mini-golf

Take the family for a game of miniature golf at Lost Treasure Miniature Golf. This mini-golf course offers two challenging courses that feature dinosaurs. As visitors putt their way through the course, watch out for raptors and even a T-Rex! Or join noted explorers as they search for treasure. Before this adventure begins, ride the mining train to the first hole.

Ride Horses

Go horseback riding with Inlet Point Plantation Stables. Great tour guides, great fun and great pictures. If you’re an experienced rider, sign up for an early morning beach ride.
