The Myrtle Beach Weekend Guide 3/6/20: DST, Marathon, Dr. Seuss Day

What should you do in Myrtle Beach this weekend? We have you covered with top picks for the weekend.

Rip Tydz Myrtle Beach
Rip Tydz offers ocean views and an excellent seafood menu

Dine Oceanfront

What: Rip Tydz is located right on the beach, with ocean views.
Why: Because you’re in the mood for a trendy atmosphere, cocktail, seafood, and beachfront views.
When: It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, but after actual 5 o’clock is probably best for a cocktail.
Where: Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach Beach

Spring Forward

What: It’s time to change your clocks.
Why: The DOT says daylight savings time saves energy because people spend more time outside instead of keeping the lights on, while parents of small children get to use extra energy trying to put kids on a new sleep schedule.
When: Sunday at 2 a.m., change any clock not connected to the internet (do you have any!?) to 3 a.m.

Watch the runners

What: Myrtle Beach Marathon is this weekend. If you’re not running, you can watch.
Why: Because you want to run 26.2 miles or not run at all. Either way, it’s a big deal and you can participate. You can watch the runners – we suggest The Market Common in front of Gordon Biersch or Grand Park in the morning for the best views. You can also skip the race and head straight to the post-race party for live music (Liquid Pleasure!), beer, food, and vendors at Pelicans Ballpark.
Where: From Grissom Parkway back to Field
When: Saturday, March 7

Have fun with your kids

What: Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day at Brookgreen. Themed make-and-take crafts and activities will be available. Children and adults are encouraged to dress like their favorite book characters.  Activities will close with a celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. 
Why: Because “You’re off to great places / Today is your day / Your mountain is waiting / Go, get on your way!”
Where: Brookgreen Gardens
When: March 7
Go: The program is free with garden admission. Event details at
