The Grand Strand: Get to know The Myrtle Beach Area

Collectively known as the Grand Strand, the Myrtle Beach area stretches 60 miles along the North Carolina and South Carolina coast, running from just over the state line in Calabash, N.C., all the way down to historic Georgetown, S.C.

Here's a look at some of the most popular areas for visitors to stay:

Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is the heart of the Grand Strand, including iconic areas like Ocean Boulevard and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk downtown.

It includes many of the area’s favorite things to do, including Broadway at the Beach, the Family Kingdom Amusement Park, Myrtle Waves water park, The Carolina Opry and The Market Common.

Dozens of the area's best hotels, resorts and vacation rentals call Myrtle Beach home.

 

North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach is located just up Highway 17 from Myrtle Beach proper and includes areas such as Atlantic Beach, Crescent Beach and Cherry Grove.

You'll find a myriad of oceanfront hotels and condos along Ocean Boulevard and on Main Street North Myrtle Beach plenty of shops, restaurants and iconic beach clubs like Duck's and Fat Harold's.

Some of the most notable attractions in North Myrtle Beach include Barefoot Landing — featuring the Alabama Theatre and the House of BluesAlligator Adventure, the historic O.D. Pavilion Amusement Park and much more.

 

Little River, Calabash & North Carolina

Just beyond North Myrtle Beach and heading north, you'll find Little River, a town that's home of the annual Blue Crab Festival and several eateries and attractions along the Little River Waterfront.

Beyond that, you'll cross the state line into North Carolina where the famously fried Calabash-style seafood awaits in Calabash, N.C., a small town which gives way to other, more laid-back N.C. beaches including Ocean Isle Beach, Holden Beach and Sunset Beach.

 

Surfside Beach, Garden City & Murrells Inlet

Just to the south of Myrtle Beach in the area known as "the south strand" are several laid-back beach communities, notable for their family-friendly attractions such as Wild Water and Wheels and attractive beach houses.

Here in the Surfside Beach and Garden City Beach areas, vacation homes and rentals feature prominently along with a few smaller hotels.

A bit further south you'll find Murrells Inlet, known as the — "seafood capital of South Carolina" — where you can check out the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk for fresh seafood and live entertainment year-round.

 

Litchfield, Pawleys Island & Georgetown

Venture further south beyond Murrells Inlet and you'll find the upscale Litchfield Beach and Pawleys Island area, a pair of “shabby chic” communities that offer a much different experience than the bustling beaches to the north.

Here you'll find a slower pace of life — perfect for a relaxing vacation — and plenty of vacation rentals and beach houses. Popular things to do include shopping at the Hammock Shops Village, dining at exquisite restaurants like Frank's Outback and playing several top-notch golf courses.

A stay on the Grand Strand's southernmost edge also means easy access to downtown Georgetown, S.C., a historic seaport with lots of interesting activities and restaurants to check out.
