The City of North Myrtle Beach and its surrounding areas offer a variety of park facilities, recreation facilities and youth athletic facilities where you can play a game of baseball or enjoy a picnic in the park with friends and family. We also have nature trails and beach trails where you can go horseback riding! If you brought your bikes with you - or rented ones at a nearby beach shop-you can get your exercise and have fun riding bikes on the beach or on the many bike trails North Myrtle Beach offers.
Youth-oriented activities abound at the beach, where kids can splash in the surf, hunt for seashells or build sandcastles with other kids and families who are doing the same thing!
