Things to do in May Near Captain’s Quarters
The temperatures are slowly increasing in Myrtle Beach and so are the reasons to come visit! There are so many things going on in May that are perfect for families to do on a vacation together. Here are just a few of them:
Alligators at Huntington Beach State Park
The Alligators that live in the marshes at Huntington Beach State Park are also fans of the increasing temperatures. Every Tuesday and Thursday in May from 10 to 11 a.m. there is a 1 hour walking tour you can take through the marshes where these gators live and feed. And now is a great time to go on this tour since the gators are much more likely to be out and active. This is a great activity to take curious and adventurous boys and girls on.
The Myrtle Beach Pelicans Play at Home
From May 12-18, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans will be playing on their home turf at TicketReturn Field. They’ll be taking on the Winston-Salem Dash during the first series from May 12 through May 14, then they’ll face the Potomac Nationals from May 15 through 18. The games start at 7:05 p.m., except for the final game on Sunday, May 18, which starts at 6:05 p.m. Come enjoy the ballpark fun and flair! Plus if you bring the VMB Card you get for being a guest at Captain’s Quarters you can get a free meal voucher with your ticket purchase.
2014 XCON World Comic Convention
On May 16, 17 and 18 the Myrtle Beach Convention Center will be transformed into a world of heroes, villains, props and costumes. The XCON convention will feature vendors, displays and the chance to meet characters that both kids and adults are sure to enjoy including the original Flash Gordon actor, actors from The Walking Dead and more. Kids 12 and under are free so this is a perfect way to spend an afternoon or two during a family trip to Myrtle Beach.
Sounds of the Summer
One of the first performances in the Sounds of Summer Concert Series in North Myrtle Beach will be held on Friday, May 16.

This free concert will be from 7 to 9 p.m. and is a great way to spend a warm almost-summer evening. Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy the weather and the great music.
