Arguably, however, vacations taken here are to enjoy the beach. And perhaps one of the best ways to soak in the serene and fierce nature of the ocean is to experience it via the Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade.
The project took nine months to construct, cost about $7 million and used almost 800,000 feet of lumber. Carpenters utilized nearly 300,000 nails, 555,000 screws and 10,000 bolts to complete it.
It is a 1.2 mile-long boardwalk and promenade that showcases the stretch of beach from 14th Ave. N. to 2nd Ave. Pier.
According to the Myrtle Beach Area Conventions & Visitors Bureau, the boardwalk and promenade are divided into three different sections, which are as follows:
• The northernmost portion winds down from the 14th Avenue North Pier to Plyler Park.
• The mid-section is located from Plyler Park to the former Pavilion Amusement Park site at 8th Avenue North and encompasses more of a carnival-like atmosphere with oceanfront dining and businesses.
• The southernmost end of the boardwalk leading up to the 2nd Avenue pier has a meandering oceanfront park.
Hotels and restaurants, including the Pier House Restaurant and Pier View Bar, are found along this exquisite walkway.
At Pier House Restaurant, you can get omelets, fish sandwiches and Lowcountry favorites like shrimp and grits.
Another favorite along the boardwalk is the SkyWheel Myrtle Beach.
SkyWheel, which is adorned with 1 million LED lights, is the first observation wheel of its kind in the nation, the second in North America and the largest wheel of any kind east of the Mississippi
The SkyWheel ride, which lasts 10 to 12 minutes, gives riders a breathtaking view of the area. It stands 200 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, with riders being able to see up to 40 miles down the coastline, up to Southport, N.C., on a clear day.
In short, there is much to do along the boardwalk and promenade and this ocean side stroll will prove to be another joyful part of your Myrtle Beach vacation.
