Grand Park Athletic Complex
Ahh, the Grand Strand. So named by a newspaperman of the 1940s, the name has stuck, and it describes some 60 miles of wide, safe, beautiful, sandy beaches. With all there is to do along the Grand Strand, visitors regularly report that the #1 reason they visit Myrtle Beach is for the beach itself. With more than 14 million visitors coming annually, it’s a good thing Myrtle Beach beaches remain friendly and safe, clean and inviting. Early-morning beach walkers enjoy year-round quiet times as the sun rises over the Atlantic Ocean, and late-night strollers, flashlights in hand, marvel at the spectacular moonrises and the haunting effect of a nighttime visit. Mid-day, especially in the summer months, the beach takes on a new energy while families and singles, young and old, relish in America’s favorite pastime.

The centerpiece of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel offers soaring panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
This 187-foot Ferris Wheel made its debut in Myrtle Beach in 2011, immediately lighting up the night sky with flashing bursts of color. The wheel is made up of 42 glass-windowed gondolas, each with temperature control that comes in handy during the summer and winter months. Each gondola holds up to six people, but they don’t require unrelated people to share a booth. The ride is typically made up of three revolutions, which usually lasts between eight and ten minutes, but there’s also a VIP option that takes place in a leather-seated gondola and lasts twice as long. You’ve seen it on tv, on postcards, from your hotel room – now it’s time to take a ride and see Myrtle Beach as you’ve never seen before.
Few oceanfront sights are as well-loved as a Boardwalk teeming with families, food, and amusement park rides. Nothing says “summer” quite like a visit to an iconic seaside boardwalk; in fact, great songs have been written in its honor.
Since May 2010, the Boardwalk and Promenade has been that iconic spot for Myrtle Beach. The award-winning Boardwalk stretches from just south of 2nd Avenue Pier to just north of the 14th Ave Pier. Along the 1.2-mile oceanfront boardwalk are hotels, attractions, shops and food.
Hungry visitors will love the food and views from Wicked Tuna at Second Avenue Pier. The oceanfront eatery is known for seafood and sushi but offers plenty of “land” food options as well. Enjoy a cold cocktail with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Boardwalk.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk offers family-friendly entertainment throughout the year, including a New Year’s Eve bash, summer concerts and street performers, and more. In 2022, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is getting a face-lift as, section by section, boards are replaced with more durable materials.
