The strand, or boardwalk, has a lot of trendy shops with over priced items. Expect to pay a lot for rides and parking. Boardwalk on the Beach is a must do experience! Nicer items and much better food, and atmosphere.

The Grand Stand is really a fun and exciting place to visit. I highly recommend doing it at night. It can get a little crowded during peak season, so if you got little ones keep a good eye on them.

It is quite sad what Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand has become. It no longer has the life, spirit, and excitement that it once embodied.

This is a well established area of Myrtle Beach with lots of shopping and activities along the way. This area is decades old for those interested in old Myrtle Beach tourist history.

Most miniature golf courses are still open in November. The amusement parks might only be open on weekends. Just as well as the areas for the go carts
