Sixty miles of sand, oceanfront oases and classic beach town vibes

While the seemingly endless beaches are the main draw to Myrtle Beach, this coastal South Carolina town is also famous for its boardwalks, golf and Southern-fried everything (including ice cream). At the heart of it all is the nearly-200-foot-high SkyWheel, the best place to get a bird’s-eye view of the Grand Strand, the area’s 60-mile string of white-sand beaches.

Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade


The most iconic thing about Myrtle Beach is its nearly-200-foot-high SkyWheel — so hop aboard for whirling, twirling views over the town and sea. It’s at the heart of the mile-long Boardwalk, and the next choice is yours: Either take your towel to the white-sand beach below or browse the shops, arcades and other attractions the Boardwalk has to offer.

North Myrtle Beach


You won’t have trouble finding your beach along this 9-mile stretch of shoreline. But don’t miss the community’s other attractions, including a pirate-boat-themed cruise around the Intracoastal Waterway. At Barefoot Landing, dine outdoors on messy buckets of shrimp and crab legs and try out flights of beer from the local brewery. And the nightly roster of live music will give you a chance to dance like a local — the area is the birthplace of South Carolina’s official state dance, the Shag, after all.
