Highly recommend for US aviation history buffs, people interested in real estate development and local history. On the Socially distanced enclosed “trolley” you see remaining repurposed buildings from Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, make short stops at significant spots, finish with yummy food and fascinating slide show/talk by one of the A-10 pilots!

Myrtle Beach Military History Trolley Tour,

We loved our tour of the old Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, which is now known as Market Common. Our tour guide was knowledgeable of the base’s rich history and passionate about relaying this information to the people on her tour. The tour consisted in two sections, a driving/walking tour, and a video presentation at Tupelo Honey restaurant.

I especially enjoyed driving through the base housing district seeing where the base personnel lived, which is still there today, and seeing some of the base aircraft on display in the outdoor area of Warbird Park, and a Army Corp Airfield that was used as a bombing and Gunnery range during WWII.

After the driving portion of the tour we went to the Tupelo Honey restaurant for the video presentation of the tour where we were served some delicious Southern appetizers and listened to a retired Air Force colonel that was part of the base history discuss the fascinating operation of the base from WWII to when it was closed down in March, 1993.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone that has an interest in the U.S. military, aviation, or learning more about the history of the Myrtle Beach area.

Growing up in Myrtle Beach when the USAF base was an active military installation and being retired AF with 26 years of honorable service, I was very interested in the military history trolley tour. I was impressed with the historical information presented during the tour. Stop offs at War Bird Park getting to touch the AF air planes that served our nation at the former base and observing the redevelopment of the closed base was a highlight of the tour. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledge of the history of the base dating back to WWII and since its reactivation in 1954. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the tour to learn the history of the AF's presence in Myrtle Beach for almost 40 years.
