Garden City Beach

Garden City’s main attraction is the beach. Grab a boogie board and body surf on the waves, or build sand castles with the kids. For more exciting water fun, you can drive up the road to visit Myrtle Waves, a large water park with fun water slides and a lazy river. Adventurous adults can try parasailing above the ocean, and then relaxing with a fishing pole on the pier.

There are so many things to do on the Grand Strand. Myrtle Beach has a new boardwalk and attractions including a giant Ferris wheel. You can visit Ripley's Believe It or Not museum and see the oddities, play in an arcade game, or get a hot dog from Peaches Corners. If you travel to Broadway at the Beach, you have a wide choice of... more

There are so many things to do on the Grand Strand. Myrtle Beach has a new boardwalk and attractions including a giant Ferris wheel. You can visit Ripley's Believe It or Not museum and see the oddities, play in an arcade game, or get a hot dog from Peaches Corners. If you travel to Broadway at the Beach, you have a wide choice of restaurants including Margaretville, owned by Jimmy Buffett. There is also mini golf, a movie theater, and countless shops.

Seafood is the order of the day in the Grand Strand and one of the finest seafood restaurants around is located right in Garden City, maybe even in walking distance of your vacation rental. Sara J's is located right on the marsh, and if the weather is good, you can enjoy your meal outside on the deck. There are numerous restaurants up and down the Strand offering a myriad of choices.

The Carolina Opry, Legends in Concert, and the House of Blues all provide live entertainment. You can find clubs to go dancing or quiet little bars to have a drink.

Maze Mania is a large, outdoor fence maze that changes daily. You race against the clock to beat your friends and family and maybe even make our wall of fame! When you've mastered the maze, head to the observation deck and cheer on the lost souls still trying to escape this impressive labyrinth. Now under new management the maze will now be hosting special events through out the year including a haunted maze this October and much much more. We have a new web site now with some great information and videos. Also check us out on Facebook and twitter!! There is now a new party room off the back deck that is perfect for birthday parties or for family and friends to get together!! Call us for our party room packages!! Prices are the same with the exception of an all day package for two dollars more!! less
