Myrtle Beach is nicknamed the Grand Strand for a reason. This 60-mile strip of fun off the East coast of South Carolina has beautiful beaches, great golf courses, killer seafood restaurants, and natural wonders that will take your breath away. The people are friendly, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is laid back. It is the perfect place to come alone or bring the family.
Start your trip to Myrtle Beach at the Boardwalk, rated among the third best in the country. The 1.2-mile, raised-wood boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean coast is the region's main social area. A walk along the boardwalk nets you amazing ocean views. Take a ride on the SkyWheel to get a birds-eye look at Myrtle Beach from 200 feet. Enjoy the free concerts held every Tuesday and Saturday. Jugglers, acrobats, and other entertainers perform every Sunday evening, and every Wednesday night features fireworks. Something is going on almost every day of the week at Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, which makes it a definite must-do.
