Look for dozens of beachwear places (they must collectively assume that the millions of annual visitors all forgot to pack), calabash (lightly fried) seafood & crab buffets, and more pancake restaurants than you've ever seen in one place in your life.

We enjoyed the walk in the Grand Strand area. Many restaurants to choose from depending on your taste. Long and admirable boardwalk.

Been enjoying the beach for over 50 years. The weather is always good in September, not too hot, just right. Not too crowded, the restaurants are so good. Wish we could visit more than once a year.

Myrtle Beach's strip / Grand Strand area has gone severely down hill. I no longer find this to be a safe travel for family.

At night, Myrtle Beach has to work on getting the drug dealers off of every corner and outside of every store.

If you love to take photos, this is the place to do it. Absolutely stunning sunrises, piers galore, wide sandy strips full of gulls and sandpipers to say nothing of the unbelievable surf shots. Lots of room to bike, run, walk, or idly stroll while searching for shells. Just perfection

My sister and I were on a "girls only" trip to relax and enjoy the ocean. We had to walk the "Boardwalk" on 2 of the 3 days we were there. We shopped, we ate and just walked. It brought back many memories of our childhood when we visited the Boardwalk in Daytona.

Great place for families or couples. Lots of restaurants to choose from....too many. Weather is also great. Many, many motels to choose from....just stay away from the Coral Beach Resort.

The Grand Strand is a terrific area of beach, stores, hotels and entertainment. Downtown Myrtle Beach is an "adventure" in itself. The best time to visit is at night with the lights and crowds of people all walking, enjoying the shops, food and people watching. This will remind you of the way this area has been since the '60's (without... More

People of all ages, backgrounds, with wildly varying desires, hopes & dreams visit the Strand & find their own thing to make them happy. It goes on for miles, offers everything from beachcombing, splashing, fishing from the pier or beach, sunning, shopping, eating, drinking, people watching, walking, running, reading, bird-watching. A group or family can come here together, & each... More
