Still safe and clean and only getting better. The Sky Wheel offers great photo ops and is fun to both ride and watch. Shops are open into the evening with lots of tourist items. Plenty of restaurants and food kiosks.

Strand was nice. IT had a lot of tourist in the area. The locals were rude and very unaccommodating.

Lots of shops, restaurants, games, rides, people and traffic. Very active place. If your hotel is not in walking distance, expect to pay $5 for parking. Worth the trip to watch the activities.

Hubby and I just came from taking a walk here. There are a lot of arcades and places to eat and dessert and souvenir shops on this street. It's not a long street and there were a lot of families with their little ones out and about and it's 10pm here now. We're staying on this street, but even if... More

The grandstand has numerous stores to purchase items--from beach wear to food. It is very close to the SkyWheel. Very crowded on the weekend, especially young adults.

There is a reason why the Grand Strand is called the Redneck Riviera. The once family-friendly city of Myrtle Beach borders on sleazy nowadays. I know, because I live here. Crime is at all time high and someone is shot in the area on a regular basis. Always be aware of your surroundings, and keep your credit cards encased in... More
