My family and I have been coming to the Grand Strand and staying in Myrtle Beach for nearly 30 years. Since I have been married, my wife and I come here every year and she loves it too. The beaches are clean and the ocean is wonderful. We can stay in Myrle Beach for an entire week for the same... More

Have been visiting the Grand Strand for 25 years. Though I have been to the beaches in Hawaii and the Carri ran, I like the beach 's on the Grand Strand( Myrtle Beach). The downtown area is a bit congested and honked tonk touristy so I love the quieter atmosphere of the south strand. Best time to come is mid... More

From the time you see the coast from the sky as you descend into the grand strand till the time you leave the view is magnificent.

This was the 1st time the kids and my wife saw the Atlantic ocean. Miles of clean beaches, piers and cool little beach side shops.

Overall a good place to visit but the one drawback for my husband and I was the DOGS. People are allowed to bring their dogs as long as they are on a leash. Well, they still crap on the boardwalks, the beaches and on the lawns. By the looks of things, not everyone is picking up their doggy poop. Just... More

It seems like all the grand Strand is are a bunch of T-Shirt shops and restaurants. MB got ruined when they tore down the arcades and tried to make the Broadway at the Beach the main attraction. It was much better when the Pavilion was still there and not some ridiculous facsimile at Broadway.

We would recommend to come to the Grand Strand because this is the place to be. There is a lot to see and a lot to do. This was the perfect holiday for us beside the weather. lol We cannot have everything. lol We just love the Grand Strand and I do not know anyone that would not.

The most commercialized stretch of highway I've ever seen. Fast food joints, too many pancake houses to count, discount t-shirt shops, strip centers, cheap motels, etc. I doubt we'll ever go back again. Never got to see the beach; it was too cold. You can't see it from the road for all the commercial buildings and signs. If it was... More

Although this place does have some fun things to do it has become commercialized and has lost some of its charm. This place now generally consists of tee shirt shops, sunglass shops, souvenir shops and places to have fake tattoos applied to your body. This is not quite the Grand Strand that I remember from my childhood. Somewhat disappointing and... More

There are a lot of great stores, and fun stuff for kids to see and do. Lots of the outdoor shopping huts were closed because of the colder weather, but we still had a great time walking around on a nice day.
