Five Tips for Planning the Ultimate Kids’ Birthday Party in Myrtle Beach

Kids love celebrating their birthdays. Kids love vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Put the two together and you have a recipe for a memorable birthday and vacation – or “birthday-cation.”

Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort provides the perfect place to combine a family vacation getaway with a birthday blowout that guests will be remembered for years to come. In fact, some savvy guests of honor will even postpone their official birthdays so they can celebrate it in the ultimate fashion in the Sun Fun Capital of Myrtle Beach.

The Grand Strand offers a wealth of opportunities for a unique birthday party experience. No need for the traditional cake and candles when you can give the birthday boy or girl a once-in-a-lifetime birthday experience. Here’s a quick list of ideas and pointers for planning the perfect birthday party for your child while visiting Myrtle Beach:

Birthday Package: Get the birthday trip started with a pleasant surprise for your birthday boy or girl by adding a Birthday Package to your reservation. When you check in to your room at the Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort, our staff will have a dozen cup cakes and two Mylar birthday balloons waiting in your room. Not only will it serve as a pleasant surprise for your loved one, but the whole family can enjoy a nice snack before hitting the beach.

Birthday Dinner: Two awesome traditions come together in one memorable evening – a night on the town at Myrtle Beach’s vibrant dining scene, and the time-honored ritual of the birthday boy or girl getting to pick the restaurant. Depending on the age, you could end up eating chicken nuggets at a fast food joint. But for kids with a sense of taste, try Original Benjamin’s Calabash Buffet, which offers a kids station of pizza, popcorn shrimp and fries as well as a bountiful seafood selection for the rest of the family.

Keeping it Simple: Some families go to great lengths to make a birthday extra special, while others prefer to keep it simple. Guests at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort can enjoy a fun birthday experience without ever leaving the property. Spend the day on the beach and spruce it up with a surprise picnic lunch featuring the favorite of the birthday boy or girl. Gather poolside for some fun in the sun, and enjoy birthday dinner at the on-site Crow’s Nest. Or order pizza for a relaxing evening in the room and enjoy free and unlimited DVD rentals for a birthday movie night.

Last-Minute Gifts: So you successfully managed to pack everything on your vacation list but one – a birthday present. No problem for guests at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort. Located just 2 miles from the resort is The Market Common, where lots of shops specialize in accessories and apparel that make great gifts. For a Myrtle Beach-themed present to help them remember their “birthday-cation” in Myrtle Beach, there are souvenir shops on virtually every corner.

Party Venues: The Grand Strand is filled with great places to hold a birthday party, from pizza joints and arcades to fun centers and water parks. UCP GameZone on Restaurant Row offers a large arcade and pizza parlor in one, and Dave & Buster’s at Broadway at the Beach features Eat & Play passes. Myrtle Waves Water Park offers cabana rentals and birthday party packages for a splashing celebration, while indoor venues like TopGolf, Rockin’ Jump and Fun Warehouse are perfect for those rainy days.

Start planning your child’s “birthday-cation” in Myrtle Beach, and be sure to start by booking your room at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort. With so many fun things to do on the premises – water slides, swimming pools a lazy river and more – every day seems like a birthday celebration.
