All About Myrtle Beach
Sitting along the nearly 100-kilometre stretch of sand known as the “Grand Strand” on South Carolina’s East Coast, you’ll find the popular holiday destination of Myrtle Beach. Here you’ll find beautiful beaches with year-round warm waters and in the summer months, lifeguards patrolling more than 80 kilometres of sand. There are many water sports to try in Myrtle Beach, from parasailing and jet skiing to surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking. Along Myrtle Beach’s golden sands, you’ll find the Boardwalk and Promenade, a two-kilometre stretch that’s lined with shops, open-air bars with live music, cafes and restaurants, and unique attractions like one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the world.
Myrtle Beach is also a golfer's paradise with more than 100 golf courses in the area, including some of the highest rated in the country. There are also more mini-golf courses in this city than anywhere in the world, many of which sport colorful themes.
How do I get around Myrtle Beach?
The closest airport is Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), which is a short 10-minute drive into downtown Myrtle Beach. There are taxis and private shuttle services available to take you to your vacation rental in Myrtle Beach from the airport. There is also a direct bus service that runs regularly.
Once you arrive, the city is easy to explore on foot, with many of the attractions and restaurants within walking distance. There are also bike and scooter rentals available if you want to get around a little quicker. If you plan on making regular visits to beaches and attractions a little further afield, a car may be your best option, and there are many car rentals available at the airport and throughout the city.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Myrtle Beach?
Myrtle Beach experiences a sub-tropical climate with hot and humid days in summer and warm waters for enjoying the beach. June through August are the hottest months, and hurricane season in South Carolina runs from June till October, so you can expect some stormy weather during this time. In June, an annual festival featuring air shows, a sailboat regatta, beach volleyball, sandcastle building, and live music on the beach takes place. Spring and autumn are pleasant times to visit, when you can expect warm sunshine and less chance of rain. The southeast’s premier outdoor country music festival takes place on the shores of Myrtle Beach in September, attracting top local and national musicians. In winters, the temperature will drop, and so will the number of visitors, but you can still expect mild days.
What are the top things to do in Myrtle Beach?
Broadway at the Beach
This entertainment hub in downtown Myrtle Beach is home to over 100 shops, 20 restaurants and bars, nightclubs, and tons of family-friendly activities. There are zip lines, jet boats, a mirror maze, a water park, and the Myrtle Beach Pavilion amusement park. In the summer, you’ll be treated to regular fireworks displays.
Myrtle Beach State Park
Myrtle Beach State Park is situated in the oceanfront maritime forest, which spans more than 300 acres. You can take a stroll along the historic fishing pier or head off on the Sculptured Oak Nature Trail, which passes through a forest of oaks and magnolias, with an abundance of birdlife and reptiles to spot along the way. There’s also a long, quiet stretch of beautiful beach in the park.
Garden City Beach
At Garden City Beach, you’ll find plenty of places to eat or catch live music in the evenings, but the vibe is decidedly laid-back, and you’ll find fewer visitors here. Colourful residences line the beach and a pier extends far out into the water, making this the perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing stroll after a day of activity.
