Kid-friendly beaches

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Adventure awaits in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A newly-constructed boardwalk offers gorgeous views of the area's 60 miles of soft, sandy coastline. At Myrtle Beach, you can enjoy the sun and surf, check out the shops and restaurants, try your luck at deep-sea fishing or take a spin on the giant Skywheel Ferris wheel.

Nantucket Island, Massachusetts

Nantucket is a charming island located off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. To get there, you'll need to hop on a boat or plane, since there's no bridge connecting the island to the mainland. Once there, head toward Jetties Beach or Children's Beach, both ideal spots for families. Check the Parks & Recreation schedulewhen planning your trip to check out the fun summer family activities like beach concerts, tie-dying, movies, opera and yoga.
