There are many shops, attractions, rides, restaurants and very close to the Beach. It is usually very busy but fun.

There is a reason why the Grand Strand is called the Redneck Riviera. The once family-friendly city of Myrtle Beach borders on sleazy nowadays. I know, because I live here. Crime is at all time high and someone is shot in the area on a regular basis. Always be aware of your surroundings, and keep your credit cards encased in... More

Still a summer vacation special place for so many from all around the US. I love to hear the stories from the different people I meet as to how they would come here every summer as kids and are now bringing their kids and grandkids. It is definitely a family place

It's like the Jersey Shore or Virginia Beach, just farther south. Actually, at one point while driving in the main area of Myrtle Beach near the skywheel, my husband and I joked we must have made a wrong turn because it looked just like the main drag of Virginia Beach.

Interesting sights. Some areas are very nice while others make you want to keep your guard up. Some shops are nice and some restaurants, too. Then there are some dives and "bad" looking people. I am sure you can buy anything illegal you want if you are there after dark.
