Destination guide

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.

Local weather for your trip to Garden City vacation rentals

Garden City is a beachgoers destination in the summer, when temperatures generally hit the 80s and water parks and other outdoor amusements are going full tilt—check out the scene in July, when the southeastern heat and humidity hit their peak. 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. Sunny more days than not, the weather can turn rainy any time of year, but especially in September.

Natural features

From the sands to wetland forest, nature is on display

Garden City Beach, as it's sometimes called, is part of the 60-mile Grand Strand that makes up a vacationers' paradise along South Carolina's northern shore. Sometimes nature shows up with great force, as when hurricanes caused huge damage in 1954 and 1989. More usually, nature can be observed more quietly. The pier offers views of schools of fish, dolphins, and jellyfish, plus the occasional shark. Nearby Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge, made up of tidal marshes and forests, hosts endangered swallow-tailed kites and other birds, plus black bears and red foxes.
