We hope you find these answers to our most frequently asked questions helpful. If you have other questions about Myrtle Beach, check us out on Facebook or drop us a line here.


  • Which airlines fly into Myrtle Beach International Airport?

    If you’re looking to book a flight to Myrtle Beach, following airlines offer service to MYR: Allegiant Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Elite Airways, Frontier Airlines, Porter Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Sun County Airlines, United Airlines, and WestJet.

    For more information on flights, visit our Myrtle Beach International Airport page.


  • Can I use a tent or umbrellas on the beach?

    The City of Myrtle Beach passed a beach regulation that prohibits the use of beach tents and other shading devices from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

    However, umbrellas up to 7.5 feet in diameter are allowed. The day after Labor Day until Memorial Day, tents up to 12 feet by 12 feet may be used behind the umbrella line.

    They must be located at least 10 feet from other tents and must be under 9 feet tall. Amendments to the new beach regulation on tents are being considered that would include baby tents, pop-up tents and other smaller shading devices.


  • Where can I rent Beach Umbrellas and Chairs in Myrtle Beach?

    It’s easy to rent beach chairs and umbrellas in Myrtle Beach! Instead of carrying your own down to the beach, umbrellas and chairs can be rented through different beach services depending on the area you’re in.

    Find the nearest lifeguard and they will point you to the right company to call. While all beach rental companies are independently owned, they all operate under city or country ordinances.


  • Do I need a fishing license to fish in Myrtle Beach?

    Depending where you plan on fishing in Myrtle Beach, you may need a fishing license. You can fish without a license from various public fishing piers, though most will require you to purchase a fishing pass.  You can also fish without a license if you are fishing from a licensed for-hire fishing charter. If you plan on fishing in Myrtle Beach from the shore, you will need to purchase a saltwater recreational fishing license.

    • Annual South Carolina Fishing License (Saltwater): Resident – $10, Non-Resident – $35

    • 4-Day South Carolina Fishing License (Saltwater): Resident – $5, Non Resident – $11

    You can purchase saltwater recreational fishing licenses from: Bass Pro Shops, 10177 N Kings Hwy  Myrtle Beach, SC 29572; Walmart, 541 Seaboard St, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577; Walmart, 10820 Kings Rd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572; Online at http://www.dnr.sc.gov/purchase.html

    *Persons under 16 years of age are not required to have a fishing license


  • What’s the Difference Between a Hotel Suite and a Standard Hotel Room?

    Choosing between a Hotel Suite and a Standard Hotel Room really depends on who you will be vacationing with and the length of your vacation.

    A Standard Hotel Room typically has one room with two beds and a bathroom. These are great for single families on vacation for a week or so.

    A Hotel Suite typically has a larger living area with separate bedrooms. They may also have features like full kitchens, balconies, offices, etc. If you have more than one family in your group, or are vacationing for longer than a week, a Hotel Suite offers more space and more privacy.

    Speak with hotel reservationists to learn more about what is included in their Standard Hotel Rooms and Hotel Suites.


  • What’s the Difference Between Oceanfront and Ocean View?

    When searching through various accommodations in Myrtle Beach you will see that some rooms are labeled as Oceanfront while others are labeled Ocean View.

    This can be a little confusing since both offer views of the ocean. Oceanfront rooms offer the best views that the hotel or resort has to offer. These rooms face the ocean and provide sweeping views of the coastline. These rooms are typically more expensive but the trade-off is waking up to an unobstructed view of the ocean.

    Ocean View rooms can be deceiving. Any room that has even the slightest view of the ocean can be considered “Ocean View.” Other balconies or other hotels may obstruct the view. On the other hand, your Ocean View room may offer a beautiful view with very little blocking your vision. These rooms typically cost less than Oceanfront rooms, but you may not have a perfect view.


  • Which hotels are the best for kids?

    Families make up the bulk of our Myrtle Beach visitors so almost all hotels in Myrtle Beach are kid-friendly.

    We’ve narrowed down some of our favorite hotels for kids based on amenities and extras, but the choices are really endless. The best of the best have awesome water features and pools, on-site dining and ice cream shops, arcades and entertainment, kids’ clubs and more. When you’re shopping for a hotel, look for the amenities you think your kids would most enjoy.


  • What days have the lowest rates at Myrtle Beach hotels?

    If you have a flexible schedule, you can save some money on your trip by booking your Myrtle Beach hotel on days with the lowest rates.:

    • Tuesday through Thursday: If you have time for a 3-day break, book in the middle of the week for the lowest rates. Also, avoid the weekend traffic in and out of town.

    • Monday through Thursday: Again, you can avoid traffic and save money by booking your vacation during the week. If you’re planning a 4-day vacation, Monday through Thursday is usually the best way to go.

    • Monday though Friday: If you are coming to Myrtle Beach for 5 days, you’ll likely see the lowest hotel rates by avoiding the weekends. A Monday arrival will also help you avoid beach traffic in and out of town.


  • Can I walk my dog on the beach in Myrtle Beach?

    Yes, during certain times.

    There are several pet-friendly hotels and condos in the Myrtle Beach area, so if you’re lucky enough to bring Fido for your family vacation, you’ll need to know the laws of the beach where you’re staying.

      Myrtle Beach  In the city of Myrtle Beach, dogs are permitted on the beach from 5 p.m. to 10 a.m. from May 1 through Labor Day. The rest of the year, dogs are permitted on the beach any time of day. They must be on a leash and under the owner’s control at all times. Bring a baggie or look for one in dispensers along the beach accesses — you’re responsible for cleaning up after your pet! 

    Surfside Beach Dogs are not allowed on the beach in Surfside Beach between May 15 and Sept. 15. 

    North Myrtle Beach Dogs are allowed on the beach from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. from May 15 to Sept. 15. They must be on a leash at all times.  Horry County If you’re staying outside of city limits, you’re subject to the rules of the county.

    In Horry County, dogs are not allowed on the beach from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 1 through Sept. 1. They must be on a leash and under the control of their owner at all times.


  • What is the weather like in Myrtle Beach?

    Whether you’d be better off visiting in fall/winter or spring/summer depends on what you’re looking for. The summer is high season when the biggest crowds flock to Myrtle Beach. Attractions such as waterparks and even some restaurants, particularly those located at hotels, are only open during the season. During the off-season months, you can find great hotel deals. The beach is less crowded, though still pleasant for walking and shell hunting. Restaurants and attractions that stay open are also less busy.

    For current temperatures and weather information, view our weather page.


  • I’m planning a Myrtle Beach wedding. What do I need to do?

    First, you’ll need a marriage license, which you can apply for at the Horry County Courthouse in Conway. The courthouse is at 1301 Second Avenue, Conway, S.C. There is a 24-hour waiting period so you’ll need to apply for the license and file a statement that you’re eligible for marriage. You can pick up your license the following day. The fees are $50 for Horry County residents; $75 for South Carolina residents; and $100 for out-of-state visitors. Licenses are valid from any county in South Carolina, but out-of-state licenses cannot be used. 

    For the wedding ceremony, please observe the following rules:

    • Beach weddings: Commercially produced weddings are not permitted on the public beach. Non-commercial weddings are permitted. This means if you’re paying an officiant, photographer or anyone else to produce your wedding, it cannot take place on the public beach.

    • Public parks in commercial areas: All weddings are allowed in public parks, but other park users cannot be required to leave the park. Contact city hall at (843) 918-1008.

    Commercially produced weddings are not allowed, but non-commercial weddings are allowed with an approved permit. You will be required to rent a shelter if a shelter exists. The fee is $25 for city residents and $42.75 for non-city residents.

    Here are parks in city limits in commercial areas:

    • Hurl Rock Park

    • 20th Avenue South and Ocean Boulevard Nance Plaza

    • Ninth Avenue North and Kings Highway Justin W. Plyler Boardwalk Park

    • Mr Joe White Avenue and Ocean Boulevard Chapin Park

    • 16th Avenue North and Kings Highway Anderson Family Park

    • 20th Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard Cameron Park

    • 27th Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard Gardens By The Sea

    • Haskell Circle and Ocean Boulevard Futrell Park

    • Dunbar Street and Mr. Joe White Avenue Valor Park

    • Farrow Parkway at The Market Common Parks in residential areas

Swim Advisories

The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control monitors water quality in the ocean from May 1 through Oct. 1. Temporary swim advisories are issued if bacteria levels are found to be above state standards. During swim advisories, walking on the beach, wading in the ocean, shell collecting and sun bathing are all still allowed. Swim advisories do not close the beach. Some areas of the beach have permanent advisory signs, which have been in place since the late 2000s. These signs advise against swimming because of the potential for elevated bacteria levels, especially after heavy rainfalls. Swashes at these sites allow stormwater runoff to drain into the ocean, which can temporarily raise bacteria levels. Swimming is not advised within 200 feet of the swashes. DHEC tests the areas with permanent advisories and says that the majority of the water samples tested do not exceed state standards for bacterial levels. For further information about water quality and swim advisories, check http://gis.dhec.sc.gov/beachaccess/.

Getting Around Myrtle Beach

If you’ve never visited the beach before, it can seem a bit daunting to travel around the 60 miles of beaches known as The Grand Strand, but in fact getting around Myrtle Beach is quite easy.

Thanks in part to the numbered avenues, and only a few major highways which run the length of the beach, getting the hang of things and getting to your accommodations is not as hard as it looks.

The key for most visitors is to finding the main connector roads for the area where you’re staying and then to do your best to avoid any major bottlenecks, as traffic can get quite congested in spots during the high season.

If you plan to travel around in your own ride or via a rental car, you’ll want to check out some of the important roads to know below, or if you’d rather avoid a headache all together check out some of the area’s public transportation options.

Highways

The additions of new State Routes in recent years along with improvements in connectivity to the existing roads have made it more convenient than ever to get to, from and around the Grand Strand.

With the Atlantic Ocean serving as a barrier to the east, the best way to think of the Myrtle Beach area’s highway system as a tic-tac-toe board, with three main thoroughfares running north-south and three running east-west.

Myrtle Beach Roads
North-South Highways

U.S. 17 Business

This road runs directly through the heart of the Grand Strand, from the N.C. state line to Georgetown. Nicknamed Kings Highway, the road can get congested during the summer months, especially near Restaurant Row and The Market Common. New connections to U.S. 17 Bypass, S.C. 31 and S.C. 22 have made it easier to avoid long stretches on Kings Highway.

U.S. 17 Bypass

Running from the north end of Myrtle Beach south to Murrells Inlet, this road was designed to alleviate traffic from Kings Highway. Due to the rapid development of the Myrtle Beach area The Bypass is now developed to the point that it too can get thick with traffic so many use S.C. 31 instead. Business 17 runs closer to the ocean and includes more businesses and stoplights. The Bypass, which is less of a bypass that it was conceived to be, skips some of those lights and can allow for quicker travel.

S.C. 31

For those visitors traveling a long stretch of the Grand Strand, U.S. 31 (aka Carolina Bays Parkway) is a helpful path.  This is a 65-mph highway that runs from S.C. 9 in Little River to S.C. 544 in Socastee. Unlike U.S. 17 Bypass, which has become cluttered with businesses and stop lights, S.C. 31 is red-light free and serves as the true bypass for travelers who need to make their way more than a few miles north or south. Construction that’s currently in progress will eventually extend the route all the way to S.C. 707 in Murrells Inlet, allowing visitors to turn a long drive on U.S.17 into a 20-minute sprint on S.C. 31.

East-West Highways

U.S. 501

The traditional route to the beach that longtime visitors may remember sitting in traffic anxiously awaiting their arrival to the beach. While it’s still the most direct path to Myrtle Beach, there are a growing number of intersections, stoplights and bottlenecks near the beach that can cause frustration during the busy summer months. Luckily, there are a number new alternatives, especially for guests staying on the far north or or far south ends of the Grand Strand.

S.C. 22

S.C. 22 is a great way for visitors to get to the northern part of the Grand Strand, including North Myrtle Beach, Cherry Grove and Little River. Also known as Veterans Highway — or the “Conway Bypass” to locals — this road is a 65-mph, multi-lane expressway that allows visitors to cut down on the amount of time spent on the oft-congested U.S. 501 as they enter the Myrtle Beach area. The road breaks off from U.S. 501 in Aynor, S.C. and offers a smooth 32-mile trip to the coast, passing S.C. 31 and connecting to U.S. 17 in the Restaurant Row area near Tanger Outlets.

S.C. 544

This state highway runs from Conway, near Coastal Carolina University, to the Surfside Beach area, ending at U.S. 17 Business near a trio of campgrounds — Pirateland, Ocean Lakes and Lakewood. In recent years S.C. 544 has been widened to allow faster access to the Surfside Beach area and the south end of town. The extension of S.C. 31 has made it easier and quicker to commute between the North Strand to the South Strand.

Connectors & Secondary Roads

Knowing the main highways is an important first step, but to become a seasoned Myrtle Beach visitor it’s best to get to know some of the area’s key connector and cut-through roads. Here’s a look at some of the most prominent roads that will help you avoid congestion during the tourism high season and deliver you to your destination in short order:

Myrtle Beach Roads

Robert M. Grissom Parkway

One other north-south route to consider is Robert M. Grissom Parkway. It runs from the Myrtle Beach International Airport north past 48th Avenue before crossing over the Intracoastal Waterway. This can be a useful route for traveling north-south within the Myrtle Beach city limits. It runs between U.S. 17 Business and the bypass and passes the Coastal Grand Myrtle Beach Mall as well as the Broadway at the Beach shopping complex.

Harrelson Boulevard/George Bishop Parkway

This four-lane through road connects U.S. 501 to Kings Highway by running directly in front of Myrtle Beach International Airport. It starts as George Bishop Parkway and runs past the former Hard Rock Park, before turning into Harrelson Boulevard as it crosses the Intracoastal Waterway. The road, formerly known as Jetport Road, served as an entrance to the airport for many years, but was extended to Kings Highway in 2012. It now provides a great shortcut to Ocean Boulevard for visitors staying on the south side of Myrtle Beach.

Farrow Parkway/S.C. 707

Starting from its newly-renovated, $121 million intersection with U.S. 17 Bypass — an area known locally as “The Back Gate” — this road provides visitors a connection to the south end of the beach and serves as a main artery through Socastee and Murrells Inlet. Farrow Parkway is a four-lane road that runs 3.5 miles between U.S. 17 Bypass and U.S. 17 Business, passing by a number of popular attractions including The Market Common shopping complex, Grand Park and the Warbird Park veterans memorial. On the opposite side, S.C. 707 (aka Socastee Boulevard) is a four-lane road that runs through the heart of the mainly-residential Socastee area of Myrtle Beach and connects on its south end back to U.S. 17 in Murrells Inlet.

Main Street/Robert Edge Parkway

Starting in rural Horry County at S.C. 90, this road runs through the heart of downtown North Myrtle Beach and serves as a convenient way for visitors to access North Myrtle Beach from S.C. 31. Formerly known as the Main Street Connector, this four-lane connector highway gives visitors access to the new North Myrtle Beach Sports & Recreation Complex on its west side and on its east side crosses over the Intracoastal Waterway before turning into Main Street at its intersection with U.S. 17. From that point on, Main Street North Myrtle Beach plays home to a number of tourist-friendly shops, restaurants, clubs before dead ending into Ocean Boulevard at the famed “Horseshoe” area which hosts many concerts and events.

Glenns Bay Road/Surfside Drive

This road provides visitors a sneaky cut through to get from U.S. 17 Bypass to Surfside Beach. Also known as Holmestown Road (on the S.C. 707 side), this road is currently only two lanes wide, however a $46.3 million, three-year expansion will begin in 2015 to widen it to five lanes near U.S. 17 Bypass and three lanes near U.S. 17 Business. Upon crossing U.S. 17 Business, the road turns into Surfside Drive and plays home to a pair of parks, and a few businesses before dead ending into the parking lot for the Surfside Pier.

Garden City Connector

Another cut through from U.S. 17 Bypass is the Garden City Connector, a short stretch which lands visitors on U.S. 17 Business smack dab in between of the main roads for reaching the Garden City Beach area — Pine Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.

Highway 15/Broadway St.

This off-the-beaten-path state route is a sneaky way for visitors traveling from the airport to get straight to downtown Myrtle Beach. While it admitted doesn’t offer the most scenic views of our area, once turning to Broadway Street near downtown it does give you a glimpse of “classic” Myrtle Beach. It runs about two miles between Harrelson Boulevard and U.S. 501, and provides beach access by intersecting with 17th Avenue South and 3rd Avenue South along the way.

Lake Arrowhead Road/Kings Road

These two-lane roads run perpendicular through the north end of Myrtle Beach, allowing visitors to travel to and from the Restaurant Row area. Connecting on both ends to U.S. 17, the road provides access to areas including Apache Pier/Campground, Myrtle Beach Travel Park and Kingston Plantation, as well as attractions like Tanger Outlets, Azealia Shores Golf Club and the Galleria shopping center.

S.C. 9/Sea Mountain Highway

As the longest State Highway in South Carolina, S.C. 9 runs more than 250 miles from the North Carolina state border north of Spartanburg, all the way to the Cherry Grove area of North Myrtle Beach. For those looking to avoid the congestion of U.S. 501 and deterred by two-lane rural roads, S.C. 9 offers an alternative route to the north end of the Grand Strand, running from U.S. 95 through Dillion, Nichols and Longs before turning into Sea Mountain Highway near its intersection with S.C. 31. If you follow Sea Mountain Highway into Cherry Grove you’ll find a number of beachy businesses including restaurants, miniature golf, and shopping centers — before running into the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier at the beach.
