102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

78. Murrells Inlet MarshWalk

What began some two decades ago as a dream for a simple creek-side boardwalk in the little fishing and seafood village of Murrells Inlet, has grown to the single most visited destination for food and live entertainment along the entire 60-mile stretch of the Grand Strand.  Now some eight distinct waterfront restaurants offer fine dining, fusion, sushi, wood-fired pizza, steaks, and of course, fabulous seafood, all with a free view and many with free nightly entertainment.

Even with a dozen additional restaurants in the area, the Marsh Walk remains the heart & soul of Murrells Inlet. Not taking itself too seriously, you’ll find tee shirts with the unofficial slogan “a little drinking village with a fishing problem,” which references its fishing industry history, and its carefree, party-hearty attitude of today, all in good taste. Family friendly, the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk, just 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach, should be on every vacationer’s and local’s radar.
