Visit Myrtle Beach, SC.

Landing at Myrtle Beach International Airport means you’re just minutes from the beach. You can opt to rent a car, hail a cab, or take the public bus to nearby towns Pawleys Island, Little River, North Myrtle Beach, and Murrells Inlet, which are all within a 40-minute drive from the airport. Whether this is your first time in Myrtle Beach or your fiftieth, you’ll immediately feel at home after landing in this welcoming coastal city known for sun-drenched beaches and world-renowned golf courses.

Start your visit to Myrtle Beach at the iconic Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade. Cotton candy, amusement park rides, and unbeatable ocean views line the stretch between the 2nd Avenue and 14th Avenue piers. Whether you make the most of the sun or stick around after dark to catch the fireworks show, the Boardwalk and Promenade is a family-friendly destination that’s jam-packed with quirky souvenir shops, live music, arcade games, and more than enough hot dogs, pizza, and ice cream to go around.

Just steps from the Boardwalk is Myrtle Beach itself. The city’s namesake beach offers visitors 60 miles of soft white sand, perfect for playing Frisbee, collecting shells, or simply soaking up the sun. Thrill-seekers can try their hand at a number of water adventures, including windsurfing, scuba diving, surfing, parasailing, and boating. If you need a break from the sun, seek out some shade under the stately oak trees at Brookgreen Gardens. This lush green space is home to both botanic gardens and a collection of figurative sculptures—a delight for nature- and art-lovers alike.

A trip to Myrtle Beach wouldn’t be complete without time spent on the putting green. Grab your golf clubs and check out one of the many world-class golf courses the area has to offer. Whether you’re new to the game or an old pro, the North, South, and Central Myrtle Beach golf courses have something for golfers of every skill level.
