Quick Travel Guide to Myrtle Beach
If the beach is your scene, Myrtle Beach’s wide sandy strip gives you plenty of room to spread your blanket and catch some rays. And if you’d rather be catching waves, look into windsurfing equipment rental from numerous shacks lining the beach.
For an unforgettable evening, indulge in the local specialty – Calabash seafood – from a waterfront table at Drunken Jack’s Restaurant & Lounge. Then, take in a show at the Alabama Theatre or The Carolina Opry, Myrtle Beach’s answers to Broadway. End the night with elegant designer cocktails at the sleek, dimly lit City Bar.
Gambling isn’t legal in Myrtle Beach, but in the international waters a short distance east, you can try your luck while cruising aboard the SunCruz Aquasino, a 220-foot luxury vessel with full-course dining, free drinks and live entertainment.
Time your visit right, and you can enjoy the area’s best festivals and celebrations. Each summer kicks off in early June with the Sun Fun Festival, a weekend of live music, watercraft racing, fireworks and the Miss Sun Fun Pageant. In early September, the end of summer is commemorated with the Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival, two days of competitive BBQ, beer gardens, wake board demonstrations and activities and entertainment for an all-ages crowd.
