Go wild at Myrtle Beach zoos & wildlife attractions!

Myrtle Beach Wildlife - Butterfly at Brookgreen GardensAnyone who’s ever traversed a packed beach in peak season, braved boulevard traffic or walked through Celebrity Square after midnight knows that the Grand Strand has plenty of its own wildlife.

But if you’re an animal lover looking for something truly wild and ferocious, you’ll want to check out one of the great Myrtle Beach wildlife attractions during your next trip.

First off, there’s a pair of Myrtle Beach zoos to visit. The Waccatee Zoo (located off of S.C. 707 near Socastee) is a 500-acre wooded preserve known as one of Myrtle Beach’s best-kept secrets, while the Lowcountry Zoo (located just south of Murrells Inlet) is part of Brookgreen Gardens, one of the area’s most popular attractions.

If aquatic animals interest you, attractions like Alligator Adventure at Barefoot Landing and Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach, let you get up close and personal with everything from ferocious gators, crocodiles and sharks to friendly dolphins, tiny seahorses and touchable horseshoe crabs.

And if big cats are your thing, you’ll definitely want to see T.I.G.E.R.S. preservation station at Barefoot Landing or take the Wild Encounters Tour to see The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species for yourself.

There’s also plenty of wildlife to be seen in the wild, whether you’re fishing and crabbing, enjoying a dolphin tour or just spotting rare birds at Huntington Beach State Park.
