Introducing Myrtle Beach

Loved and loathed in equal measure, the unabashed resort town of Myrtle Beach is no shrinking violet. One of South Carolina’s most popular and affordable tourist destinations, Myrtle Beach seduces snow birds with its warm subtropical climate, mile after mile of coastline, lively entertainment, smatterings of old time kitsch, and enough retail outlets to keep thrifty consumerists on a high for days. Each year, more than 14 million overly tanned tourists converge upon the beaches, 120 golf courses, 200 public and private tennis courts, amusement parks, water parks, aquarium, theaters, and trinket shops. The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, inaugurated in 2010, is a classic slice of Americana, and has consistently been voted one of the nation’s top three boardwalks—where else can you ride a Skywheel, a 200-foot observation wheel with glass gondolas that look over the Atlantic Ocean. From hot dogs to all-you-can-eat seafood, more than 2,000 restaurants cater to every culinary dispensation. Myrtle Beach State Park, established in 1935, occupies just under a mile of the 60-mile coastal arc of Grand Strand which funnels south from Little River to Georgetown and offers a wild array of water sports. Fishing here is also considered world class and there are boats for charter at the glitzy marinas which run the length of Grand Strand Beach.
