Whether you’re visiting the Grand Strand for general leisure or in the area for a sporting tournament, there’s no shortage of facilities nearby where athletes can get active. In addition to the water-centric recreational activities you’d expect to find on the coast — swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, wakeboarding and the like — the Grand Strand is loaded with traditional athletic facilities for competitive sports like soccer, tennis, baseball, softball and more.
The next time you and your sporty crew are looking to get some training or competition in during a stay at The Cottages at North Beach Plantation, head for one of these three nearby athletic facilities:
