Things Change...But The Beach is Still Great

We drove up to Windy Hill Beach and couldn't find a single memory from the Sixties. Drove to Myrtle Beach and the same. The Pavilion is gone as is the arcade. The Gay Dolphin... read more

We go there many nights while we are staying there. So many different things to see and do for the entire family.

Loved walking into all the shops. Something for every one! Able to sit & have a bite to eat & people watch. Really trendy in the evening with street performers & nightlife choices.

My title isn't meant as a negative. I miss the carnival and the rides but there's still plenty do. The Gay Dolphin is still the same. Nice memories.

We drove up to Windy Hill Beach and couldn't find a single memory from the Sixties. Drove to Myrtle Beach and the same. The Pavilion is gone as is the arcade. The Gay Dolphin was about the only thing familiar. But the Grand Strand, the BEACH, was still great. A nice wide beach with plenty of room to walk, plenty... More

Lots of shops. Good place to get Myrtle Beach stuff. And of course the Gay Dophin is there. That place never changes.

More like a indoor flea market, but they sell the exact same thing you can find up and down the strip of N. Kings Hwy. It is also overpriced. There are about four stores inside and they all sell the same thing except for the pet store. I would not return.

We picked a day to do this when it was a bit hot. This meant that we enjoyed quite a few shopping experiences just to get inside and away from the heat. Will do this again on the next visit.

I am born and raised in SC and am totally happy making this my travel spot year afer year...I am 47 and have probably made 30 trips ...it just gets better and better if they had only left the Pavillion and Magic Attic in tact...I don't think my heart will ever get used to the huge empty hole it left...

Lots of shops and restaurants that could occupy all your time. We only walked a part of it, but got some good shopping in!
