If bowling is up your alley (see what we did there?) – 810 is an awesome option right here in North Myrtle Beach.
810 features fun bowling lanes, gaming and delicious food – all in a family-friendly environment. Bowling is affordable and fun. If bowling isn’t ideal for you, don’t worry because there are several other games offered, for FREE! These games include foosball, bocce, and darts! This bowling alley is guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained all day long. While you’re there, don’t forget to sample some amazing appetizers!
Grab Some Rain Gear and Head to the Beach
If there is not threat of thunder and lightning, grab some rain gear and head to the beach! This can be an awesome opportunity to find shells after a storm, when the sea has tossed and turned to unearth hidden treasure. Look for a flash of black sparkle in the sand just where the water touches – often, you will find that tiny sparkle is actually a hidden shark’s tooth.
