Explore the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade
At over one mile long and growing, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade is one of the area’s newest and most popular attractions. With hundreds of places to dine, shop, and have fun, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is a great place to take the family during your beach vacation.
Up and down the boardwalk, there are tons of fun and exciting attractions to see and do. For the best thrills at the beach, stop in at the Family Kingdom amusement park. For over 75 years this seaside amusement park has been providing guests with good quality family fun. With rides and games like the Twist n’ Shout Coaster, Slingshot, Frog Hopper and Mini Bumper Cars - just to name a few, Family Kingdom provides fun for all ages. Intrigued by the strange and unusual? Take a walk through the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum. Browse the Odditorium full of creepy artifacts like authentic shrunken heads, a 19th century vampire killing kit, and life-size transformer made from real car parts. After your tour, visit the neighboring Ripley’s Haunted Adventure or 5D Movie Theater. If you’re looking to slow down and enjoy the atmosphere of the beach, take a ride on the SkyWheel or catch a free concert at the Pyler Park Hot Summer Nights concert series.
The Boardwalk & Promenade also has some of the best local cuisine along the Grand Strand. The Pier House Restaurant, located at the south end of the boardwalk, offers a number of specialty dishes for those looking for great, fresh seafood. Stop in during your stroll and try their seafood pasta; a delicious mix of shrimp, clams, and mussels tossed with tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms all topped with a roasted garlic broth. If it’s a grab and go meal you’re in the mood for, pick up a famous hamburger from Peaches Corner. First established in 1937, this local burger place captures the feel of local beach life. Get your photo on the wall and a free t-shirt when you complete the Peach’s Challenge: eat five pounds of food in five minuets. With so many boardwalk dining options, you might have to make more than one trip!
During your trip to the beach you’ll want to pick out a special souvenir to remember all the great memories made. With a number of gift shops and clothing stores, the boardwalk will have just the gift you’re looking for to capture your vacation. Shop the selves of beach-themed gear and decor at Landshark gift shop located at the base of the SkyWheel, or peruse the shelves of one of the local gift shops for custom designed apparel and accessories.
