Healthy Options in North Myrtle Beach

You don’t have to drop your healthy lifestyle when you go on vacation. There are a lot of ways to stay fit while visiting North Myrtle Beach. Pay attention to your diet and visit one of the many fitness facilities along the Grand Strand when you visit.

Dining out is a popular past-time for North Myrtle Beach visitors. Hundreds of seafood restaurants with their 4 hour wait times show this. Take your time and study the menu and ask wait staff about the various dinners before you go jumping into the buffet. Most restaurants will cater to the pickiest health nut and offer some fabulous alternatives. Fish is actually one of the best foods you can eat if you’re watching your weight – and we have tons of it!

When you’re at the beach, it’s not hard to stay active. In fact, most of the time, you are actually getting more exercise on vacation than you ever would imagine back at home! There is an endless supply of beach and water sports, such as beach volleyball, ultimate frisbee, surfing, and para-sailing. Our wide beach strand is perfect for distance runners. Outdoor shopping malls, such as Myrtle Beach’s Tanger Outlets, are a good place to get in hours of cardio. You end up walking several miles as you check out all the hot merchandise.

Don’t stop going to the gym just because you’re on vacation. North Myrtle Beach is host to hundreds of fitness clubs. Most of them feature pools, state-of-the-art weight rooms and cardio machines, and saunas. Guests of Ocean Drive Beach Rentals get discounts at Sports Doctors Fitness - located just down the road from major Grand Strand Resorts. Inquire within about what gym would be perfect for your needs.

There is no excuse for you to let your body go while in North Myrtle Beach. Although there is plenty of tempting treats to sway your healthy habits; it is extremely easy to stay on course. Instead of that ice-cream sundae on Ocean Drive, how about a delicious homemade fruit smoothie just a couple stores down?
