Start with a trip to some of the state’s best water parks! Myrtle Beach has so much to offer. The month of May will keep you on your feet to start your summer of activities and events off with a bang.

Start with a driver’s meeting with crew chief, training and instruction and in no time you will be timed racing around the Myrtle Beach Speedway. There’s no lead car to follow and no instructor riding with you. It will be like the real Pros!

May 7th is the 11th Annual Mayfest on Main Festival. The all day affair is held on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. Enjoy live music, food, crafts and take a look at what local vendors have to offer.

There is no better way to finish out your weekend than with mom. Take mom to Mothers day brunch at New York Prime or Wicked Tuna where they are giving moms a free Bloody Mary, Mimosa or glass of Champagne! Afterward head over to Brookgreen Gardens and enjoy the two new exhibits opening Mothers Day weekend. After you attend Mayfest on May 7th, you can also take advantage of Brookgreen Gardens’ Masquerade at the Muses. Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 3.56.15 PM
