year visitors return to the Myrtle Beach area, also
known as the Grand Strand, to not only enjoy our 60
miles of beautiful coastline, but to also experience
the splendid multitude and diversity of our attractions.
Days chock full of shopping, dining, golfing, and live
entertainment may be right up your alley; on the other
hand, you may prefer to dig your feet into the sand
and enjoy the warm Carolina sunshine.
With more than 200 sunny days and a temperate year-round
climate, the Myrtle Beach area is a paradise for beach
goers, offering endless hours of swimming, surfing,
sailing, and other sun and sand favorites. Sports enthusiasts
will fall in love with our 108 (and counting) championship
golf courses. And fishing opportunities abound, whether
you prefer to stay on land and cast off from one of
the seven piers that line our coastline, or take the
deep sea challenge through one of the Grand Strand's
many fishing charters.
You can test your putting skills where proficiency really
counts: on lush, exotic greens surrounded by lava-spewing
volcanoes, menacing gorillas, and loot-hungry pirates.
More than 47 whimsical and challenging courses have
earned Myrtle Beach the title of Miniature Golf Course
Capital of the World.
Eco-tourists can explore the wildlife and wetlands of
the area through kayaking, canoeing, diving, and biking
amidst the natural beauty of the Grand Strand. Riverboat
cruises, creek expeditions, and even jeep tours are
led throughout the Lowcountry by experienced researchers,
captains, and storytellers.
