Guests looking for a great place to enjoy a little family friendly fun or a lively night out on the town will definitely want to check out the Myrtle Beach boardwalk. This recently renovated 1.2 mile boardwalk winds all the way from the 14th Avenue Pier to the 2nd Avenue Pier, providing plenty of entertainment and scenery along the way. Bustling with events, activities, shops, dining, and more, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk truly offers something for everyone!
The first things guests to the boardwalk will notice is the upbeat energy that this area exudes and the variety of entertainment options. Peruse the oceanfront path as you take in endless Atlantic vistas or take a stroll out on one of the piers. The boardwalk is lined with an array of local shops that offer the perfect place to find a gift or souvenir. There is also plenty of entertainment, with several arcades and attractions to keep you busy. Explore new heights on the famous Myrtle Beach SkyWheel that takes riders almost 20 stores into the air or beat the heat at the nearby Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum. You certainly won’t be short on things to do during your boardwalk adventure.
Another great perk of the Myrtle Beach boardwalk is that there is almost always something fun going on. The summer even offers nightly entertainment, ensuring that guests have plenty of opportunities to come out and enjoy the beautiful beach weather and get in plenty of quality time. The summer is known for the boardwalk’s popular “Hot Summer Nights” promotion which features a festive Kids Carnival on Monday evenings, fireworks over the ocean on Saturdays, and live seaside entertainment other nights during the week. Other popular events that take place throughout the year include the St. Patrick’s Day Festival, the Beach Blast Festival, Coastal Uncorked, and several spooky Halloween events.
All of this fun is sure to work up an appetite and you won’t have to look far for great eats. The boardwalk area is packed with just about any cuisine you could crave. You can find classic beach fare right at the foot of the SkyWheel at the Landshark Bar & Grill. This casual restaurant serves up treats sure to please any palette like zesty wings, fresh oysters, juicy burgers, gourmet hot dogs, seafood baskets, and an array of lighter salads and sandwiches. Pier House Restaurant offers two dining options, their casual open air bar and the slightly more formal indoor dining area, both of which serve up the area’s best seafood while authentic Mexican cuisine and the area’s best margaritas is right up the alley at Bandito’s Cantina. Other popular eateries include Oceanfront Bar & Grill, Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar, and 14th Avenue Restaurant & Lounge.
The scenic Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the ideal place for both families looking to enjoy an afternoon together and adults seeking a great place for a little late night entertainment. Packed with entertainment, events, and dining that are active throughout the year, you really don’t have a reason not to check out this bustling portion of downtown!
