Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Hotels
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade is the heartbeat of the Myrtle Beach area in South Carolina. This boardwalk, which opened in 2010 and cost nearly $6,4 million dollars, spans 1.2 miles and is frequently reviewed as under the top three best boardwalks in the United States of America.
The current boardwalk is however not the first boardwalk to have graced the Myrtle beach are, for the first boardwalk, build in 1930 and upgraded in the 1940’s, lasted until 1954. After much debating, the city of Myrtle Beach decided to construct the current boardwalk – knowing it would be one of the hottest attractions for the city and surrounding areas.
The boardwalk is the current access point to almost all of Myrtle Beach’s most well-known and visit worthy attractions. It therefore does not only provide a scenic walk along one of the most beautiful coasts in North America, but has its primary function in giving central access.
In terms of restaurants, the Oceanfront Bar and Grill is a must. Having been housed in the same location since 1948, this is as much a restaurant as a testament and landmark of Myrtle Beach – having been a part of both the original and the current boardwalks.
For those looking for something more exotic, Banditos Mexican Cantina provides a warm and inviting trip to a true cultural experience. And those seeking a little whimsy and a dash of the fantastical can visit I Love Sugar. Not so much as a restaurant as a candy-store for the child at heart, this store promises a unique experience nonetheless with over 6,000 square feet of every sort and size of candy available – there are 30,000 Gummy Bears alone which are hanging from the sealing! Put that together with a 65 foot mural of candy shaped as mermaids swimming with gummy sharks, and you have a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
On to the more adventure-minded, the boardwalk is the passage to some of Myrtle Beaches most iconic parks, rides and adventure-houses. For those who take a “bird’s eye view” seriously, the SkyWheel provides a unique view of Myrtle Beach from its 200 foot high turn.
If the SkyWheel still does not satiate your needs, you could take a trip down the Myrtle Beach Zipline to get the adrenaline pumping.
Of course, adrenaline comes in different forms, and those with a strong heart and stomach may want to enter the Nightmare Haunted House where zombified clowns and decrepit freak show workers will be sure to send chills up your spine.
Travelling with the family? Well then you have to visit Wild West Old Time Photo’s for a quick photo that will send you back in time and spook yours neighbors with the photo of your identical family who lived nearly 200 years ago in a time of guns and shoot-‘em-up.
The boardwalk is therefore the definitive attraction for each and all visiting Myrtle Beach, offering a taste of the diverse and rich cultures found in this quant South Carolina city.
