Start off on the beach at 2nd Avenue Pier, and make your way north to Pier 14. This one-mile jaunt allows you to experience the excitement of the ocean, while getting in some quality exercise! Keep an eye out for seashells and other marine treasures as you walk, jog, or run parallel with the coast.

Enjoy a casually-paced excursion to one of the many premier golf courses along the Grand Strand, where you can keep active while challenging yourself and having a great time. If you're not confident in your golfing abilities or are travelling with a family group, take advantage of the mini-golfing opportunities that are scattered all along the coast.

Outdoor Ropes Courses
- If you're looking for a real challenge that burns calories like crazy, try out Radical Ropes in Myrtle Beach or Go Ape in North Myrtle Beach, for a tree-climbing good time. Put your fitness to the test when you attempt to complete the entire courses. This outdoor adventure will keep you immersed in the sights and sounds of the Grand Strand, while pushing your physical and mental limits!
Watersports / Swimming
- Grab a boogie board, paddleboard, or surfboard, and make your way into the waves for a fun-filled, action-packed day in Myrtle Beach. Use your balancing and swimming skills, as you stay atop of the surf. If you're more interested in swimming, just remember to be safe, as rip tides have been known to take swimmers away from their point of origin. Always swim parallel to the coast if you feel that you're being caught up in the wrong current. You can also visit Litchfield's on-site fitness centers like the Beachside Health & Fitness (membership is required).
There's no excuse for neglecting your fitness while vacationing in a Myrtle Beach condo rental. From golf to surfing to running up and down the coast, there are plenty of ways to stay active in the area!
