We took a walk along the grandstand and had fun people watching and enjoyed the scenery. Definely makes for great pictures. You must try it at least once. The restaurants along the grand stand are definitely not as good as elsewhere in Myrtle Beach.

Weve done the strip lots of times so we do not go every time we visit. With that being said if you have never done it. It is worth a visit . Lots of little stores, couple arcades Just lots of different things to do for the family. My girls love to get the braids from one of the places... More

This drive is a good one to follow. I loved going down Ocean Blvd. You can see the ocean and see all of the people running and walking.

Taking my teenage daughter on the Grand Strand brought back lots of memories from my teen years as a Myrtle Beach visitor. The Grand Strand looks great and has done well with renovations.

You need to visit the Grand Stand while you are in Myrtle Beach...it is the life blood of the city. We both walked and drove through this part of town many times while we were visiting.

This area is run down, old, and dingy. I would avoid it, especially with children. Go to Broadway at the Beach, or, if you are in north Myrtle Beach, go to Barefoot Landing. Both of these options are nicer, newer, more fun, and safer.
