What is the Grand Strand?

Well, it is a sixty mile stretch of beach that includes the South Carolina coastal cities of Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Garden City, Surfside Beach, Murrell’s Inlet, Litchfield and Pawley’s Island, and even the seafood haven of Calabash, NC, all of which strand together to form a vacationer paradise.. thus the name, grand strand.

And there are tons of things to do here year round. There is, of course, the beach itself. Wide and expansive, the South Carolina shore is renown for its soft, wide, sandy expanses, calm waters and breathtaking sunrises. Wake up early, and you can find the shell-hunters, walkers and joggers patrolling the shallows. As the morning wears on, families, umbrellas and lifeguard stands begin to set up shop. It isn't long before the sand buckets, sand castles and frozen lemonade carts make their daily debuts. And so goes a day of life on the beach. But lazing in the sun as the surf comes and goes is only part of the reason millions of people come from all over the world to vacation in the Grand Strand. Quite simply, there are tons of things to do at Myrtle Beach. Have your mind set on scuba diving, parasailing, deep sea fishing, hiking? Take in an aquarium? Myrtle Beach has you covered. With more than 100 first-rate public golf courses, Myrtle Beach is also a golfer's dream, and it's not uncommon to find condos booked solid in the fall and spring by golfing foursomes from all over the world. All these choices help make Myrtle Beach the attractive destination it is, and even if you find yourself drawn here for one particular activity, like golf or fishing, chances are you'll waste little time booking a return trip so you can enjoy whatever it was you missed.
