Myrtle Beach’s beachfront boardwalk offers arcades, restaurants, and the Family Kingdom Fun amusement park home to the Sky Wheel, one of the largest Ferris wheels in the United States. While you’re there, you’ll probably get to dancing on the boardwalk, and make sure to do the Shag, the famous swing dance wildly popular in the 1950s and 60s that originated in North Myrtle Beach. You can still find a beach or boardwalk music band and people happy to teach you the basic steps most nights on the Grand Strand.
Retail therapy is without question on of the amenities of the Myrtle Beach area, the largest shopping destination in all of South Carolina, and one of the largest shopping areas in the southeastern United States.

Wine lovers have a place in Myrtle Beach as well. La Belle Amie Vineyard is a beautiful winery and vineyard to visit for a peaceful romantic afternoon. Sit at the wooden tables in the vineyard and enjoy the wines this beautiful hideaway has to offer.
Sea Captain’s House restaurant, built in 1930, is one of the oldest buildings in town, which is rare given the number of hurricanes over time in this area.

While visiting, a short ride south to Murrells Inlet will be well worth it to be submerged in beautiful and famous Brookgreen Gardens pictured above, a must-see.
After a stroll through the gardens and oak trees, head across the street to Huntington Beach State Park where you will get to marvel at and walk through the Atalaya Castle. The Moorish-architecture home was built, designed, and owned by Anna and Archer Huntington.
