One destination...endless possibilities!
South Carolina's Grand Strand of beaches has long been a Mecca for vacationers looking to get away from it all. Today, that's still the case. If you're looking for a dream vacation - either as a couple or as a family - it's hard to imagine a place that offers a more bountiful selection of activities for everyone. Sunshine. Golf. Shopping. Water sports. Water parks. Theater. Fishing. Nightlife. Amusement parks. Fine dining. Luxurious accommodations. Myrtle Beach has it all - it's one exceptional destination with an endless array of possibilities.
And that's not even including the area's number one attraction - the beach - 60 miles of beautiful sand that provides recreation from swimming, tanning and shell collecting to parasailing, sand castle building and body surfing.
Of course, being situated on the Atlantic Ocean also makes the Myrtle Beach area synonymous with food! Seafood to be exact. The Grand Strand features two seafood centers known worldwide - Murrells Inlet and Calabash. Both founded as fishing villages, you'll find the freshest catches at fabulous prices.
As the state's "Seafood Capital," Murrell's Inlet offers more than 30 restaurants serving mouth-watering delicacies. Award-winning chefs create culinary masterpieces with the bountiful seafood harvested off the shores of Murrells Inlet. Walk among the wetlands, cruise the creek, savor the world-famous seafood, you can explore a variety of onshore pleasures of this exceptional area.
While golfers and tennis players flock to Myrtle Beach, so do fishermen. Your catch may include bass, bream and crappie in the freshwaters of the area river systems and countless ponds. You can catch flounder, black drum and winter trout in the tidal creeks...and whiting, spots, pompano and channel bass in the surf. For the more adventurous, an offshore fishing expedition can reel in dolphin, wahoo, snapper, grouper, sea bass, mackerel, tuna and perhaps even a fighting blue marlin. Myrtle Beach...with so much activity, you may not have time to do it all. But you'll have fun trying!
