Myrtle Beach Travel Tips

Myrtle Beach is a popular destination for travellers because of its small-town feel and subtropical climate. The area - including North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Surfside Beach and Murrells Inlet - incorporates 60 miles of uninterrupted beaches, prompting locals to call it the Grand Strand. If you’re in the market for a South Carolina beach vacation, check out Myrtle Beach, which offers a plethora of things to do and see.

The Boardwalk

Myrtle Beach’s 1.2 mile-long Oceanfront Boardwalk & Promenade is fairly new to the scene - it was opened in May 2010. National Geographic and Travel and Leisure magazine both ranked it in their respective top-10 lists of U.S. boardwalks in 2010.

This wooden beach stroll runs from the pier at 2nd Avenue to the pier at 14th Avenue. The boardwalk is the central attraction for the estimated 14 million tourists in Myrtle Beach each spring and summer.

If you’re up for an adventure, take a ride on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, a 187-foot tall ferris wheel near Plyler Park and 10th Avenue. The attraction features 42 state-of-the-art, glass-enclosed and temperature-controlled gondola carriages. Grab a relaxed meal at the Landshark Bar & Grill near Pier 10, or head to the Pier House Restaurant at 2nd Avenue Pier.

Entertainment

Myrtle Beach wouldn’t be itself without miles of sandy beaches, but for a little un-sandy fun in the sun, head to one of Myrtle Beach’s excellent water parks. Myrtle Waves, the largest water park in South Carolina, is located on 20 acres and boasts the world’s tallest tubular slides - the three Turbo Twisters. They’re 10-stories high and rocket you through at an amazing 50-feet per second! Or, check out Family Kingdom, a mini-water park with plenty of fun carnival rides, located just south of 2nd pier and right near the sea.

If you’re visiting between April and September, head to a Pelicans game - Myrtle Beach’s minor league baseball team. You can also check out a race at the popular Myrtle Beach Speedway, or head to an event at the Myrtle Beach convention center, which hosts anything from bluegrass festivals, national karate competitions, children’s arts and crafts shows and a Dickens Christmas show during the holiday season. Check the schedule before planning your visit to see if anything sparks your interest.

If you’re in the mood to shop ‘til you drop and eat some good food too, head to the Broadway at the Beach shopping center. Visit the ever-popular Ron Jon Surf Shop, buy some gourmet gifts, try some samples at Pepper Palace and buy your pooch something special at Reigning Cats and Dogs. There are dozens of restaurants, but don’t miss Sweet Carolina’s Low Country Grill and Smokehouse, which serves up the tastiest Southern fare, like pecan wood smoked baby back ribs, fried green tomatoes and homemade chocolate pie.

You’ll find Myrtle Beach State Park just south - halfway between Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach. You can do just about anything here, like fishing or crabbing off the pier and beaches (just make sure to buy a permit!), picnicking and taking a walk or bike ride through on the Sculptured Oak Nature Trail, which runs through one of the last seaside forests in South Carolina.

Events

The annual Myrtle Beach Marathon is held every year in mid-February. The run begins and ends near Pelican’s Field and Broadway at the Beach, and much of the marathon takes place along Ocean Boulevard. There are also a half marathon and a 5K included in the day’s activities.

Myrtle Beach Bike Week - a major motorcycle event - takes place in May each year and has drawn motorcycle riders and enthusiasts alike since 1940.
