The beach resort town of Myrtle Beach is the focal point of a 60-mile (96.5 kilometer) stretch of seafront dubbed ‘The Grand Strand.’
High-rise condos line the long stretch of beach, with its amusement parks, water parks and souvenir shops. Golfing is a big hit round here, with more than 100 courses to choose from.
Stroll along the Atlantic-front boardwalk to one of the many seafood restaurants, spend a night at the Carolina Opry for sing-along live entertainment, or shop and dine at the huge Broadway at the Beach complex.
Myrtle Beach is around 90 mi (145 km) from Charleston, heading north along the coastal Highway 17.
