08. Fishing at the Piers

Most travelers know that the Grand Strand is one of the most popular vacation destinations on the East Coast.

Hugging the coastline for 60 miles from Georgetown to the North Carolina border near Little River, the area is abundant in its variety of activities and entertainment.

Even with the extensive list of theaters, shopping and dining options in our area, often the most lasting memories are the ones that have changed little over generations. The area is home to a number of the largest fishing piers on the East Coast.

The piers in our area have long served as a focal point for casual beachgoers and serious fishermen alike.  It’s not uncommon to see vacationers young and old casting their rods into the Atlantic in hopes of landing a fresh flounder dinner or perhaps a trophy picture to show their friends.

The Myrtle Beach area piers are well constructed, clean and family friendly.  Many of them offer full fishing gear rentals, live bait, numerous food and beverage options, arcades, and open air restaurants, complete with live entertainment.
