Glass Bottom Kayak Tours

Disconnect and venture away from the shore with Glass Bottom Kayak Tours in North Myrtle Beach. During the holiday weekend, they’re offering their Private Island Kayak & Shelling Tour which allows you to paddle out in a Glass Bottom kayak or single kayak and learn all about an undeveloped barrier island and all of its beautiful shells. 

Topgolf Myrtle Beach

After you hit the links, grab your friends and tee up at Topgolf, Myrtle Beach’s premier entertainment destination. With three levels to play on, you can choose from a variety of games including Quick 9, TopShot, TopScore, and more. Rain or shine, Topgolf is one activity that everyone in the group will enjoy. 

Tips & Tricks

Anticipate Traffic

Be patient as you travel around the Grand Strand during Labor Day weekend. With the influx of people, you will most likely encounter traffic as you visit popular restaurants and areas of entertainment. The key is to remain patient and leave for your destination early. 

Bring A Mask

Your safety is important and mask regulations are constantly changing. Come prepared for any indoor activities and restaurants by packing a mask, just in case. 

Book Your Accommodations and Save

The only way to make sure you get the oceanfront room you want at the resort you love is to book now. Brittain Resorts and Hotels offers accommodations for every size group and budget. There are kid-friendly resorts like Compass Cove with endless pools and an oasis for couples like The Strand.
