Explore Garden City from vacation home rentals

Garden City is a small resort town that shares a section of the 60-mile arc of beaches called "The Grand Strand" with 11 other communities, including the region's big enchilada, Myrtle Beach. A Garden City vacation rental offers a chance to enjoy the same lovely sands and surf, away from the bigger town's bustle, while still close to natural areas, attractions for all the family, and some fine golfing. Garden City Pier is fine for strolling, fishing, watching the surfers, and it includes a bar for late-night partying.

A Garden City vacation rental in winter, usually with temps in the 40s, still offers sunbirds and travelers fine golfing and beach walking, although a January dip into the 30s can send you toward indoor pursuits.

Natural features

From the sands to wetland forest, nature is on display
