SC native that has been coming here since 1978. The original clean and beach colored tacky amenities along with the pavilion & arcade are long gone. Now rusted parially lit signs, crumbling stucco, roaming bums, and it smells like the urine trough at a ball park. The zip line and other minor adds around the area is like putting lipstick... More

Our family walked along here on Christmas eve day. We found parking close for a $5 fee for the day. Some shops and restaurants were open even on the holiday, we really enjoyed the Gay Dolphin, what a large store full of treasures. We found some cute Myrtle beach Christmas ornaments.

Went here so my daughter could get a bear. I ended up walking out with some new shoes and a Redskins cap. We stopped and had lunch here too, going back to see a movie in a couple of days. Definitely somewhere you could spend 2 or 3 days at during your trip. SO MUCH TO DO!

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.
