As its name suggests, the main attraction in Myrtle Beach is its 60-mile stretch of sand and sun known as the Grand Strand. Its natural beauty attracts flocks of sun worshippers each year, as evidenced by the coastline’s numerous hotels. In Myrtle Beach, though, the beach is just the beginning. Travelers will be surprised to find that the city offers an array of family-friendly attractions, bustling clubs and excellent shopping.
Patrons of our Marriott hotels in Myrtle Beach can easily enjoy the area’s top attractions, including Family Kingdom Amusement Park, a Myrtle Beach institution and home to the largest Ferris wheel in the state. Broadway at the Beach is an enormous shopping and entertainment complex that houses Ripley’s Aquarium, featuring a 750,000-gallon tank and a collection of sharks. For a more upscale shopping experience, visitors can stop by Market Common and browse such popular stores as Williams-Sonoma, Anthropologie and Pottery Barn.
To truly soak up the atmosphere of one of America’s favorite resort towns, visitors should escape their Myrtle Beach hotel rooms and stroll along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade. The 1.2-mile long boardwalk offers pristine ocean views and a number of shops, as well as exciting concerts and festivals throughout the summer.
