Combine the joy of being on the beach with the charm of South Carolina’s low country. 

Add to it more attractions and restaurants than anyone can count, throw in stretches of protected natural beauty, and you have it – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 

Nineteen million people visit this stretch of beaches every year, known as the Grand Strand. With 215 sunny days a year, 425 hotels, and almost 100,000 other rental units, this is an excellent area for a convenient beach vacation. 

My memories of Myrtle Beach range from a tiny budget hotel room right on the water near bustling Myrtle Beach to a quiet luxury condo on Pawley’s Island, each with its brand of southern charm. 

Anyone interested in Myrtle Beach SC property can choose from three-bedroom homes in the $200,000 -$300,000 range to mansions with acreage running in the millions.  

Beaches for Everyone 

Myrtle Beach isn’t one beach but many. The City of Myrtle Beach has 114 public beach access points along 60 miles of coastland. 

If you want to be where the action is, Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach are bustling with people and attractions. However, there’s a more laid-back vibe at Garden City Beach, Surfside Beach, and Litchfield Beach. For a long nature walk, try Myrtle Beach State Park, and see its long pier, sand dunes, and wildlife. 

If you want a little more action than being buried in the sand by your children, choose from deep-sea fishing, parasailing, banana boat rides, or jet ski dolphin tours. 

Fabulous Seafood 

You’re never far from a restaurant in any area of Myrtle Beach. There are waterfront restaurants all along Ocean Boulevard. In addition, parallel Highway 17 is lined with restaurants. 

One area,Murrell’s Inlet, is known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina. Its MarshWalk, a half-mile wooden boardwalk that gives you a great view of the inlet, is lined with well-known seafood restaurants, with local favorites like shrimp and grits and she-crab soup. 

Another area where restaurants are concentrated in the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade. 

So Much to Do 

You may have to stay longer than you planned. The attractions and activities at Myrtle Beach are too many to list – riverboat rides, plantation tours, river kayaking, amusement parks, water parks, a wax museum, helicopter rides, an aquarium, and no less than a dozen live theater venues. 

If you have any energy left over, there are no less than 100 golf courses to choose from! 

Gorgeous Gardens 

When it’s time for a break from the beach and all that action, Brookgreen Gardens is waiting for you – a stunning property with botanical gardens, a sculpture gallery, a low country nature preserve, and a zoo, all for $10.00 for kids and $20.00 for adults. 

Just south of Myrtle Beach near Pawley’s Island, you can wander through butterfly gardens, formal gardens, ancient live oaks, a palmetto garden, terraces of flowers, and the Muses Garden, centered around a beautiful fountain. 

In the wild sections of the 9,127-acre property live alligators, deer, foxes, otters, herons, egrets, and other low country natives. Land and boat excursions are often available through the preserve for an additional fee. 

Whether you have a week, a summer, or a lifetime, Myrtle Beach is one of the nation’s most popular places to spend it.
