The Excitement of Myrtle Beach, SC!
The heart of the Grand Strand is right here in Myrtle Beach. It is the center of everything along the Grand Strand and offers visitors excitement at every turn. Voted the "Number 1 Family Beach" by the Travel Channel in 2003, this popular destination keeps visitors coming back year after year.
The beach stretches for several miles, so we will easily find the right stop to stake your vacation claim. The landscape has changed in recent years. While smaller hotels & motels can still be found everywhere, many have made way to high-rise condos and hotels that now dot the oceanfront. There is an accommodation for every type of budget.
The main strip is Ocean Boulevard, which runs parallel to the beach. Accommodations line both sides of the Boulevard (Oceanfront & Across the Ocean). Many of the accommodations along the beach are within walking distance from some of the area attractions and restaurants. A bus service is now available along the boulevard to take to you to your favorite destination. However, car service or the use of your own car is still the best way to get to some attractions that are further away.
Speaking of attractions, Myrtle Beach has something for everyone, from amusement parks, and mini golf, to live shows, and water parks. Just about every attraction is geared toward families, so most are kid friendly. The Family Kingdom Amusement Park, not only boasts South Carolina's largest ferris wheel and the Swamp Fox Roller coaster, but parents will be happy to learn that this amusement park caters many rides to a younger audience. So the little ones will feel right at home here.
Live shows can be found all around Myrtle Beach at one of the many theaters. Plus, for the golfer who prefers windmills over extensive championship courses, Myrtle Beach has mini-golf that will last for days at a time.
Did we say "Championship Courses?" Myrtle Beach is a golfers dream. Dozens upon dozens of golf courses can be found throughout Myrtle Beach for every level of golfer.
While the beach is of course the big draw, when the sun goes down, the party really starts. The area nightclubs bring Myrtle Beach to life to the point of sensory-overload. From retro dance clubs, to top 40, techno, oldies, dueling pianos- what more can you ask for?
When you are finally ready to catch your breath and enjoy a scrumptious meal, you won't be able to turn around without finding one of hundreds of places to eat. Every level of cuisine is represented in Myrtle Beach. Want a thick juicy steak? Or how about a Lowcountry Dish? But the big fish on the menu is, of course, Seafood. Fresh from the open waters and area waterways, Myrtle Beach provides seafood dishes beyond anything you can imagine. And if you really want to make a pig of yourself, try one of Myrtle Beach's All-You-Can-Eat seafood buffets. Just don't blame us when you return home and you realize you need a few less notches in your belt.
Finally, the shopping outlets, malls, and specialty shops can be found everywhere. One particular area of interest combines shopping with restaurants and attractions. Broadway at the Beach is the center of the action and a must see for any visitor.
With so many choices, Myrtle Beach is a prefect location to make your stay when visiting the Grand Strand, but we do suggest you look past the city borders to find other great accommodations and things to do while visiting. There are other shows, restaurants, attractions, and shopping to be found in North Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield, Pawleys Island, and historic Georgetown.
