What to Do in Myrtle Beach for Canadian-American Days

In winter, you can’t blame our Canadian neighbors for dreaming about a Myrtle Beach resort in the spring.


In its 61st year, Canadian-American Days is a celebration bound with fun and sun. It’s a week-plus of reacquaintance with the beach — some 60 miles of it in all its glory.


For golf, calabash seafood, lounging on the shore, and more, we’re looking forward to Can-Am Days. The beach is open, restaurants are open, and people are ready to celebrate spring.

What’s the Mask Situation in Myrtle Beach?

As you know, things change in a heartbeat. As of this posting, there isn’t a city mandate for masks. They’re recommended in situations where it’s not easy to socially distance.


Many Grand Strand businesses have expanded cleaning and sanitation protocols during the pandemic. Most offer hand sanitizer and some require staff to wear masks.


Heed requests per business, usually posted on or near the door. For the latest, check out Healthy Travel Page and the DHEC.





Can I Get a Direct Flight to the Grand Strand?

Allegiant, Porter, and Spirit are among the airlines offering flights to Myrtle Beach. Many are adding direct flights every year. Check out the current list. And remember, masks are required at the airport and onboard planes.




What if I Need a COVID Test While on the Grand Strand?

You can find free PCR testing clinics in Conway, Myrtle Beach, and North Myrtle Beach. CVS, Conway Medical Center, and Walgreens also offer testing. We recommend appointments at all locations.



Other Fun Things to Do During Can-Am Days

Visit Warbird Park

See retired fighter planes in this memorial for the men and women of the U.S. Air Force. Find it off Highway 17 Business in Market Common, on the site of the old Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. It was home to the 354th Tactical Fighter Wing, deactivated in 1993.



Check Out Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum

There’s no charge to visit, but donations are appreciated for this haven for local art. Enjoy two exhibit floors, a gift shop, and a sitting area. The museum features the work of abstract painter Bill Scott, through April 2.




Indulge in Some Pie From Aj’s Pizza Myrtle Beach

This might be the Grand Strand’s favorite pizza, and it’s worth a visit while you’re here. We recommend the surf and turf, with marinated mushrooms. They also serve up delicious wings, pasta, wraps, and more.
