We've got 60 miles of them. And they're gorgeous! Sparkling waters, white sands, endless possibilities. Why haven't you started packing yet? Whatever your beach activity - Frisbee, volleyball, surfing, swimming or lounging - we've got the space to accommodate. That sound you hear is the Atlantic, and it's calling for you.
We want you to enjoy your stay in Myrtle Beach and not feel like you just lost to the house in Vegas. We have options for every budget, which is one of the reasons 15 million people flock to our little plot of paradise annually. Plus, we've got hotels, condos, beach homes, rustic cabins and campgrounds. Depending on how far you want to travel, there are accommodations with ocean views, some right on the ocean and others within walking distance. As you can see, there are plenty of options when choosing that home away from home.
With over 100 quality courses, many designed by some of the legends of the game, Myrtle Beach is a golfer's paradise. We're often called the golf capital of the world, and it's easy to see why. One of our courses even played a pivotal role in the evolution of "Sports Illustrated," hosting the magazine's first sales conference a few weeks before the debut of its first issue in 1954. With all this history and all these choices, the only links you should travel to are the ones right here along the Grand Strand.
There's never a dull moment in Myrtle Beach. If you're looking for adventure and a little bit of learning, take a wander through that upside-down house known as WonderWorks. Or, journey under the sea at Ripley's Aquarium. There's also plenty of thrilling entertainment at Pirate's Voyage and Medieval Times. And who could pass up a world-class show at Alabama Theatre, Legends in Concert or The Palace Theatre? The sum of all our parts equals up to one entertaining trip.
You won't go hungry when you visit the Myrtle Beach area. Trust us, we've tried! If you wander over to the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk, you'll find yourself in the "seafood capital of South Carolina." Seafood not your thing? How about a juicy, mouth-watering steak from such local favorites as Ruth's Chris Steakhouse or Kansas City Prime Steakhouse? Yes, we can hear your stomach growling!
We didn't invent the wheel, but we do have the biggest one on the East Coast, with the highest view of its kind of the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean. The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is a breathtaking attraction and the pride and joy of the 1.2-mile Boardwalk. For those not afraid of heights, they'll be rewarded with a beautiful view of our fair city's skyline. And hey, if you are afraid of heights, stop off at the nearby LandShark Bar and Grill for a little liquid courage.
Sometimes you just need a little retail therapy. And there's plenty of it here along the Grand Strand. Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, Coastal Grand Mall and The Market Common are just a few of our local options to find that perfect pair of pants, gifts for loved ones or just a few trinkets for yourself.
From belles to bikers, our city is never short of fun, interesting people who are bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. Bring the family, and make some new friends that will last you a lifetime. Myrtle Beach is an eclectic community that thrives on personality and class.
The sports junkie in all of us can get their fix in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy America's pastime at TicketReturn.com Field and watch our Myrtle Beach Pelicans in action. Hoops aficionados should love the next two years, as the Grand Strand plays host to the VisitMyrtleBeach.com Big South Conference Championship. Oh yeah, there's also golfing. Have we mentioned that?
Yes, we are mighty proud of our beaches. But it's not the only natural attraction we have to offer. Take a stroll through the wonder that is Brookgreen Gardens, or enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the Conway Riverwalk. And when you need to walk off all those shrimp and crab legs, the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk can't be beat for scenic beauty.
