Beach (also known as South Carolina’s Grand Strand) is gifted
with blue skies, lotsa of sand, lots of sunshine, and gentle breezes.
The natural beauty of this coastline has attracted visitors for
nearly a century.
Beach sits on an island with a 60-mile oceanfront and three
roads connecting it to the mainland. Bounded on the north and the
west by the Intracoastal Waterway, on the east by the Atlantic
Ocean and on the south by Winyah Bay, the Grand Strand can be shut
off from the outside world by closing four bridges, giving the
impression of being a world unto itself.
Myrtle Beach and the other towns that dot this
long island stretch have become year-round vacation destinations.
River to Pawleys
Island, there is a dazzling variety of restaurants, as well as
great nightlife, concerts and theater, museums, interesting shops,
and recreational activities for the whole family.
Beach has over 1600 restaurants that will satisfy most any
appetite. Everything from seafood to sushi - often with fantastic
ocean view. The best in seafood - including the spicy, succulent
Calabash variety - graces many a buffet.
The area is a welcoming destination for golfers,
fishermen, shoppers, families, honeymooners and anyone else looking
for a fun-filled vacation. Myrtle Beach and its neighbor, North Myrtle
Beach, have something for every budget and itinerary. Their antique
stores, great furniture stores and outlets, marinas, fishing, water
sports, a Nascar track, and an easy-going family atmosphere make
visitors want to return year after year.
Myrtle Beach is home to the Myrtle
Beach Pelicans, part of the Atlanta Braves Farm Team System.

100 top golf courses in the region.

Beach's miniature golf courses, theme parks and museums which
