About Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Entertainment District

The classic beach tune sings the praises of life under the boardwalk, but the real fun is above ground these days at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Entertainment District. The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Entertainment District boasts an amazing location in downtown Myrtle Beach. Along with 1.2 miles of walkable boardwalk, the downtown Myrtle Beach area is home to tons of great shops, restaurants, hotels, rides, attractions, and entertainment.

Places to Eat

Of course, while having fun on vacation, one is sure to work up an appetite. Thankfully, there is a variety of restaurants along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Entertainment District.

Wicked Tuna at Second Avenue Pier is a popular spot for a cocktail and a meal. Famous for seafood and sushi, Wicked Tuna also offers plenty of options for the non seafood-lover. The oceanfront eatery offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Boardwalk.

Many classic Myrtle Beach restaurants also call the Boardwalk home, including the infamous Bowery. Known as the Eighth Wonder of the World, The Bowery is home to the supergroup Alabama, which got its start as the house band for the bar from 1973-1980. The Bowery serves cold drinks and Southern hospitality seven days a week from its prime spot on the Boardwalk.  

Additional dining options abound along the Boardwalk from the iconic Peaches Corner serving up burgers and comfort grub since the 1940s to the modern oceanfront eateries like Riptydz and Tin Roof.

  • Down on the Boardwalk…..

    Take a trip down memory lane, walk down with kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and tell about them about the way it was. Then go and make new memories for them to pass along.

  • Beef jerky

    Everything was good and fun except the lady with glasses at the beef jerky shop she was so rude to my husband over beef jerky that didn't have a label on it.

  • Beautiful sunsets

    The natural beauty of MB is amazing!!!!! We stayed for 8 days at The Carolinian resort. The beach was not overcrowded and we found plenty of shells. My husband flew his kite and a nice man came to actually came down the beach to show him how to fly the kite. :) We ate at a lot of different places , in all honesty the places further from the beach we got the best service and better food. The places within walking distance of the beach we had terrible service and the food was subpar. I don’t know if it’s out of frustration or laziness but at 3 places we watched our server just sit and chit chat with coworkers instead of serving us. :( The food at the Melting pot , Rioz, and the experience of Pirates Voyage were GREAT!! For the most part the local people were friendly to us. We went during a “ canceled” bike week so we saw plenty of bikes which for me is a plus. We walked tonDonalds pancake house for breakfast almost everyday which was nice. We watched the sunset nightly from our balcony ! Absolutely beautiful!! Everyone at MB that we talked to told us not to go walking or be out much at night, so we didn’t really do any of that. We did take beach walks at night. I enjoyed my visit. We spent quite a bit more $ than we planned too. We were planning on possibly buying a condo but after researching online we are reconsidering. Seems transplants aren’t welcomed much in MB and blamed for its crime and conditions. Ranked one of the highest in crime rates. :( I genuinely enjoyed my stay , but it could’ve been the company I kept I enjoyed more
