5 Places within a 5 Minute Walk

There are many reasons you will love your stay at Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark, and one of them is the close proximity to fun and food.

 While many people travel to Myrtle Beach via car and drive to area attractions and restaurants, it is much more convenient when you are already parked to just walk to fun Myrtle Beach attractions and delicious food. Below are five places within a five minute walk (or just a little longer).

Downwind Sails – 0.1 miles – 3 minutes

Laying on the beach and wading in the cool waves of the Atlantic ocean are certainly the highlight of every Myrtle Beach vacation, but why not kick it up a notch with some water sports. Downwind Sails is located right next door to Crown Reef and offers a variety of options. Some top options are piling the whole family on a banana boat for a leisurely ride or renting jet skis for a thrilling jaunt in the ocean. Use your VMB Discount Card for $10 off of parasailing and jet ski rentals.

Jurassic Mini-Golf – 0.3 miles – 7 minutes

Myrtle Beach abounds with mini golf/putt putt courses designed in every theme you can imagine, it’s practically mandatory to play a round when you visit. At Jurassic Mini-Golf you will putt past prehistoric dinosaurs, while being surrounded by beautiful gorgeous water features. Make sure to present your VMB Discount Card $1 off for adults or $3 off all day play before 6:00 p.m.

Oceanfront Helicopters – 0.4 miles – 9 minutes

Are you ready to be exhilarated and see Myrtle Beach from a unique vantage point? Book a tour with Oceanfront Helicopters and soar above the crowd. There are tour options for every budget, ranging from the Intro Flight, a two mile fly over taking in the Grand Strand, to the Grand Tour, which flies you practically to North Carolina to the Cherry Grove Pier.

Springmaid Pier – 0.5 miles – 10 minutes

Springmaid Pier is a Myrtle Beach landmark and a popular fishing spot. You can buy a fishing pass, bait and rent rods and reels right at the onsite store The Tackle Shop. Piers are a must do experience when you travel to the ocean. When you walk all of the way to the end, it almost feels as if you are smack dab in the middle of the ocean as you feel the pier sway and give slightly with the current.

Damon’s Grill – 0.1 miles – 3 minutes

After a long day of sunshine and sand you don’t want to have to go far for dinner. Damon’s is conveniently located next door and offers a plethora of choices to please every palate. Get your choice of Famous Onion Loaf, Artichoke Dip or a Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae for your party for free with an entree purchase when you show your VMB Discount Card.

Pro Tip: Don’t make a big, time consuming trip to a full grocery store or big box retailer, head to the

Express Mart – 0.6 miles – 11 minutes

You can pick up simple toiletries and basic grocery items and an assortment of other things at your convenience.

Now that you have an idea of what is in close proximity, it’s time to book your next vacation. Crown Reef always has great Myrtle Beach resort deals, so get started now!
