Good afternoon from T.I.G.E.R.S. and Preservation Station! Are you looking for some fun in Myrtle Beach? Our area has so much to offer, the options are endless. Do you like free stuff?
I was doing some research for the blog this morning and found this article on usatoday.com. check it out, it mentions Myrtle Beach's favorite animal attraction!:
Vacation expenses often add up much quicker than travelers imagine, thanks to airfares, baggage fees, the cost of gas, hotel rooms and eating out. But being on a restricted budget doesn't mean you can't enjoy what a city has to offer. Many highly appealing destinations have enticing no-cost entertainment options. Here are some of our favorite cities for free activities.
Myrtle Beach: Fireworks, music, tigers and time travel
The Atlantic coast is where much of the Southeast goes to play in summer, and there are plenty of free things to do in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Start on The Boardwalk, a 1.2 mile-long promenade with ocean views and superb people watching. The Boardwalk's also where you'll find an amazing lineup of free festivals, carnivals and concerts, all part of the city's Hot Summer Nights program.
On Wednesday nights, Myrtle Beach celebrates Hump Day with a 9:30 p.m. fireworks show at the 2nd Avenue Pier. Another free fireworks show caps each Tuesday evening in summer, thanks to Broadway at the Beach, where warm-weather concerts are also held at no charge.
Show your stripes with a visit to T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station at Barefoot Landing, Myrtle Beach's amazing yet free wildlife exhibit and tiger museum, where you can watch Bengal, Siberian, Royal White Bengal and Golden Tabby tigers playing in their own outdoor environment.
T.I.G.E.R.S. and the R.S.F. (Rare Species Fund) are based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and operate four public education exhibits; Two "Preservation Stations" in Myrtle Beach, SC, "Wild Encounters" located at Jungle Island in Miami, FL as well as yearly productions in the Boston, MA area of the highly acclaimed show "The Tale of the Tiger".
At our Preservation Stations, the wildlife ambassadors; the great apes, big cats, elephant and a stunning group of other highly interactive animal ambassadors, offer our guests a collection of experiences that can be life changing. While at the preserves, the participants senses are awakened to a whole new world; feeling the leathery hide of our elephant, the soft touch of a lynx, the sweet smell of a binturong and the heart pounding sound of tigers running at 55 miles per hour. Our visitors see animals they know and love displaying their spectacular natural talents and have encounters with new ones they never even knew existed. During these encounters our guests connect with wildlife in a very intimate way which personally involves them in the lives of these amazing animals. They then walk away into the world with a desire to save these creatures and help preserve their environments.
