Parks

Open since 1936, Myrtle Beach State Park has been untouched by human development and boasts a number of outdoorsy activities. Birdwatching is very popular in this neck of the woods. However, take a walk on the wild side and witness nesting sea turtles or get up close and personal with reptiles at the Nature Centre. Afterwards, visit the bait shop and relax with a satisfying afternoon of fishing. Enjoy a day away from the excitement of sand, surf and boardwalks, and truly appreciate nature.

Best of Myrtle Beach

Our last day we spent about 5 hours at the boardwalk area, ate a great meal on the Pier and then sat on the Pier watching the ocean. Then we walked back down the boardwalk & sat on benches watching the people and the ocean, it was very relaxing.

We took three of our grandchildren and took them to Pirates Voyage they loved it also the rides at Braodway and Barefoot was perfect for 5, 4, and a 3 year old.

Fishing, aquarium, ripley's museum, shopping, nice restaurants, the pool, the ocean, the mall.... and much more!!

Relaxation and beautiful oceanfront. This location was perfectly located away from traffic and the crowd.

Very much so! Beautiful beaches, warm water, great food, and plenty of attractions!

The swimming pool at Barefoot Yacht Club Resort

They are the best!
