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.

We love to visit Myrtle Beach every time we get a chance which is often because we live so close in NC. You would love a visit to the area they have so much to offer for everyone young to seniors.

The grand strand is a fun place to spend a few hours. There are a ton of shops, food courts, and entertainment. It is a great place to just watch people and the cars that cruise by the hour.spend some time on the boardwalk and the Gay Dolphin gift shop, they have everything.

We did not really spend to much time on the Strand with this visit because it was not really all that warm out. Always visit the Gay Dolphin though.

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
