Beautiful Beaches

Myrtle Beach is home to miles of sandy beaches that are beautiful any time of year. With onsite beach equipment rentals, nearby oceanfront dining, and views of the Atlantic Ocean, the beach is often the main attraction for many of our visitors.


Open-Air Shopping

Treat yourself to a shopping spree at any one (or all!) of Myrtle Beach’s places to shop. Tanger Outlets is the perfect shopping destination for those who love a good bargain on their favorite brands. For a perfect night out with the family, head to Barefoot Landing or Broadway at the Beach. These two popular Myrtle Beach spots offer unique shopping, delicious dining and entertainment perfect for making memories.

The Great Outdoors

You may be at the beach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have the best of both worlds. Spend your afternoon at Myrtle Beach State Park or Huntington Beach State Park to enjoy nature trails, beautiful scenery, and an escape from the bustling beach scene. Both parks feature a variety of activities such as fishing, bird watching, geocaching, biking and walking trails, playgrounds, and picnic tables, all perfect for a laid-back day with the family.


Historical Sites

If you love taking in the history and culture of your vacation destinations, be sure to visit Atalaya Castle and Brookgreen Gardens. Located on the south end of the beach, both sites are full of rich South Carolina history and culture.

Adventurous Activities

Myrtle Beach has a variety of exciting activities that are perfect for the adventurous traveler. Experience the beach from a different view by parasailing over the Atlantic. Zip-line through the tree tops and test your strength on the ropes course at Go Ape Tree Top Adventure or give wakeboarding a try at Shark Wake Park. If you’re looking to spend a day on the water, check out Myrtle Beach Watersports or kayaking along the marsh in award-winning Cherry Grove Beach.
