We read where the zombies were going to be strolling down through the boardwalk starting around 8 pm which we seen 1 and then we were leaving about 10 and we seen 2 more. Your advertisement for Fright Nights mislead us. Even online it showed a lot of Zombie's coming out. If it was not going to be many then... More

Love the Grand Strand! Been coming here for over 40 yrs. Stayed in the ocean front campgrounds in younger days and they were alot of fun. Folks are friendly, it's like a big neighborhood. Mind you the ocean breeze is more intense in a campground. Then moved on to second row hotels, which my preteen and teenage kids loved because... More

We really enjoyed walking along the boardwalk - people watching, shopping, and looking out over the surf. We went during the day and at night and enjoyed both. The evening crowds are huge with a bustling nightlife. The kids spent a mint in the arcade - and had a blast playing the old pinball baseball games. Whenever I think of... More

We were headed to the movies and happened upon the Grand Strand. It was really cool. There were rides, restaurants and overall a nice place to stop. Have money ready for rides and eats, the rides were a little pricey, but okay. I'm not sure if I would make a special trip to go there. Definitely a family place.

Good for wandering seniors. Lots of shops, snack bars, restaurants to stroll through or hook up with the beach. Reminded us of Atlantic City boardwalk (minus casinos) Great place to get your exercise.

My greatest memorys happened riding the log flumes with my papa and eating frozen lemonades with my grandma. Riding the roller coaster with my sister and watching... More

The Grand Strand is made up of many beach communities along the ocean shore. There surely is something for everyone. The beaches are so long, they seem endless. Also, no matter what your favorite thing to do on vacation is, you will be able to find that interest. You can go the inexpensive route and go to the beaches and... More
