Things to do in September in Myrtle Beach Near Captain’s Quarters08/29/2013
September kicks off, as always, with Labor Day weekend and the host of activities and events that brings (which we have covered in our Labor Day at Captain’s Quarters blog). But after that last chance for a fling at the beach before the kids start back to school there are still a ton of events happening in Myrtle Beach that give you a host of reasons to come to the beach.
To start with there are a bunch of great acts sure to tickle your funny bone at the Comedy Cabana. Basile, a comedian who has performed around the world and is well-known for his voice acting work as Bullwinkle J. Moose on the popular kids Rocky and Bullwinkle show, is performing daily at 8 p.m. from September 10- 13 and twice on Saturday, September 14 at 8 and 10:15 p.m. Also performing is J.J. Ramirez, a comedian who has performed on Comedy Central and is entrenched at the Borgata Casio in Atlantic City, is performing daily at 8 p.m. from September 2 through the 5 and then twice a day on September 6 and 7 at 8 and 10:15 p.m.
There is also an opportunity to help out the Murrells Inlet community on Saturday, September 14 during the Fall Haul Inlet Creek and River clean up. From 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. members of the community and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will be gathering to help pick up trash and debris in the area.
Or you can appreciate local art at the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Arts. The festival runs from September 19 through October 12, meaning visitors to the area have tons of opportunities to see the musical performances, the wearable art luncheon, gallery crawl and more.
A more kid-friendly event at the end of September is the chance to go snorkeling with Ripley’s Aquarium! Ripley’s staff will take kids ages 6 to 12 out on a trip into the Atlantic Ocean on a private charter boat. All the equipment will be provided and the event costs $19.99 plus tax per child.
Another event that is a favorite of locals and visitors alike is the St. John’s Greek Festival. For four days at the end of September (the 26, 27, 28, 29) the Greek Orthodox Church has a festival to celebrate Greek food, music and the beauty and history of the Greek Church. It is a can’t-miss event for locals and any visitors in the area at that time.
There are also tons of things that Captain’s Quarters itself is planning on doing in September (based on weather and occupancy), from Captain Sneaky and Tiki Bird appearances, to Chief Kamu’s Fire and Hula show.
September is still a hot time to visit Captain’s Quarters in Myrtle Beach!
