Owner description: One of the most popular vacation spots in the U.S., the Grand Strand is a section of coastline known for its numerous golf courses, entertainment, amusement parks and resorts. The climate is ideal for sunning, swimming, water sports and any number of daytime activities, while world-famous stars draw nighttime crowds to clubs and theaters.

AMERICA....What a great country. And the Grand Strand does its share of providing the American Dream. The Strand is affordable and relaxing.
You can pick & choose if you want a bunch of people or just a moderate number of fellow vacationers.
Things to do are almost unlimited...pick your poison. And the Good Lord provides the great Atlantic Ocean and the wonderful beaches of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at no charge.
Never be in the position to regret not seeing this wonderful piece of our country.

The Strand has always been a vacation hotspot ever since it was developed to accommodate the tens of thousands of tourists SC gets every year. Whenever you aren't at the beach, the Grand Strand is the place to go. There are a lot of small beach-y type shops and some unique ones such as the Gay Dolphin which is a huge novelty shop. Across from it are the Ripley's attractions and there a variety of eaterys along Ocean Blvd.

This area is extremely busy and loud in the summer months. There are a lot of teenagers roaming around, but the police are plenty there as well. I never felt insecure. Iggy's ice cream on the boardwalk has the best ice cream. There were 144 soft serve flavored, but the cappuccino crunch is by far the best ice cream I've ever had in my life. There is a little Boardwalk restaurant that advertises their pretzels with pizza sauce and cheese inside; these were terrible and my husband said the hamburger was the worst he ever tasted. Don't eat there. It is right next to the arcade.

Too many people and has a run down look. The place is in bad need of a renovation and needs more things to do there.

Lots and lots of traffic. The typical tourist shops. Loved it all. Really crowded in the summer months. Party place for the young. Lots of fun, but lots of walking.
