What’s New in Myrtle Beach: 2018 Edition
With each new year in Myrtle Beach comes fun new attractions, delicious new restaurants, and more reasons to visit the beach.
Check out our roundup of what’s new in Myrtle Beach since last summer and what’s coming soon. Be sure to add these to your spring or summer vacation itinerary!
Benchwarmers Grill & Tap Room
This grill and sports bar is family friendly and will be located near Broadway at the Beach and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball field. They will feature a ton of different appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, a great kids menu, and they have 48 drinks on tap!
Masala Chai has amazing Indian street food and fun Bollywood decorations. This new restaurant is located 9.6 miles north of our resort, and it is very convenient to visit on your way to or from Barefoot Landing.
Water Tree Cafe
If you had a little too much fast food on your journey to Myrtle Beach, the Water Tree Cafe is a great place to grab a salad, taco, crabcake, or one of the other delicious lunch or dinner options. It is located next to the Walmart on Farrow Parkway, near The Market Common.
Lucy Buffett's LuLu’s
During your visit up to Barefoot Landing for shops, House of Blues, and Alligator Adventure, be sure to check out the new LuLu's! LuLu's has a great waterfront view, and is "celebrating, food, family, and FUN!" Grab some gumbo and enjoy their live music.
Ocean Boulevard Entertainment Complex (coming soon!)
This newly constructed complex will feature three stories of oceanfront restaurants and entertainment! Guests will have one more awesome reason to visit the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk as this new attraction will be just past Pier 14 on the northern end of the Boardwalk. Restaurants will include Tin Roof: A Live Music Joint, Papa’s Raw Bar, Burger Fi, and The Bimini Room, and the ground floor will include a beach retail store.
The Market Common is about to get even better with this brand new restaurant that includes bowling, pool tables, darts, and other games.
Topgolf (coming soon!)
Topgolf is coming to Myrtle Beach! Even non-golfers will love the fun and modern atmosphere, specially crafted food and drinks, and golfers will be amazed by the electronic driving ranges and games. The golf balls are microchipped!
