Best Myrtle Beach Rainy Day Activities

Myrtle Beach averages 215 sunny days per year! So, chances are during your stay you will be able to enjoy some fabulous weather. Often when it does rain here, we are lucky because it’s not usually a washout and the rain passes quickly, allowing for vacationers to get back out on the beach as soon as possible.

However, if it does happen to be a rare rainy day during your vacation at Carolina Dunes, don’t fret, there are plenty of indoor activities that you can enjoy while staying dry and still having fun.

Check out these top rainy day options so you can be prepared for your next beach trip:

Indoor Amenities!

If you book direct through, then you are in luck because we have a partnership with The Caravelle Resort, located just steps from our oceanfront condo building. You can enjoy such amenities as the large indoor pool and whirlpool, the indoor fitness facility to work off some vacation calories, arcade room where kids can enjoy some fun competition and Liquids Lounge where you can enjoy some tasty food and drinks.

Rockin’ Jump, The Ultimate Trampoline Park

Rockin' JumpIf you have kids in your family who have some energy that needs releasing on a rainy day, head over to Rockin’ Jump, located about 4 miles from Carolina Dunes. Kids (and adults!) can jump for various increments: 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 120 minutes. Attractions include the Ninja Challenge Course, Stunt Bag, X-Beam, Dodgeball Arena and more. They also have various events throughout the year on select dates such as Rockin’ Tots, Rockin’ Saturdays for all ages and Rockin’ Fridays featuring a live DJ for ages 11-17.

Relaxation – Oceanfront Style

A great option for a rainy day is to cuddle up with a book on the couch of your oceanfront condo. From there you will be able to see off the balcony and watch the ocean as you enjoy a good read and a cup of coffee. Or, if you brought board games along you can spread out in the living room for some traditional family fan and enjoy a little bit of competiveness.
