first time at myrtle beach...

This is our first time to myrtle beach. We are staying at the Hampton Inn oceanfront. I hear it is a good place to stay. My son is 7 and loves to do what boys like to do. He loves the ocean, fast rides, fish ect. Can anyone suggest the best attractions?

Thanks, we are going Aug.2

The Pavilion Amusement Park.. lots of shopping at Broadway at the beach, Barefoot Landing, something called Magiquest at Broadway.. Lots of things to do and see. He will have a ball... The Hampton Inn is supposed to be a great place..Have fun. Oh, and Ripley's Aquarium..

Yes, take him to Broadway at the Beach. Magiquest is supposed to be great for kids, but pricey (as is everything in MB) Be sure to feed the fish as you walk over the bridges at Broadway. Go to the pavilion area. Lots of rides and arcade games. And of course the beach and pool area at your hotel. Have fun!
