WELCOME TO MYRTLE BEACH
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a great place for a family or beach holiday. Activities include theme and water parks, mini golf, fun-fairs and night life.
It is also a great place to shop with huge outlet malls, souvenir shops, specialty stores and more. But the area is best known for the 60 miles of beautiful Atlantic coastline which have given it it’s nickname ‘The Grand Strand’.
Myrtle Beach boasts two main shopping, dining and entertainment centres. Broadway at the Beach is the most popular location and we have accommodation that will put you right near the action. Ripley’s Aquarium and the Palace Theatre are two of the main attractions.
Barefoot Landing, North Myrtle Beach is just fifteen minutes drive north of Broadway at the Beach. The main attractions are Alabama Theater, Alligator Adventure and House of Blues, which is a live music venue.
There is plenty going on along the seafront including the Myrtle Beach Sky Wheel seen in the left-hand photo above. You will find plenty of shopping, dining and amusements along the front or nearby to keep you occupied.
See our Myrtle Beach Attractions page for more information.
There are over 1800 places to eat in the area, from fast food outlets, pancake houses and diners to fine dining establishments. There is something for everyone regardless of last and budget.
There are bewildering number of accommodation options but we use our local knowledge and expertise to point you in the right direction.

WHEN TO TRAVEL
The summer beach trade brings in the most visitors and as such July and August can be very busy. That said May and June and September are great times to visit the area for some sun, sea and sand.
Shopping is a big thing along the ‘Grand Strand’ with many huge malls as well as countless smaller shopping parades and with many end of year sales this makes Christmas and New Year a fantastic time to visit for the shopaholics among you.
With 12 theatres, at the last count, there is plenty to do in the evenings as well while the countless restaurants and bars will ensure you don’t go hungry… or thirsty!
