The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is much more than the 1.2-mile stretch of wooden walkway along the beachfront. It’s also a relatively new attraction that has breathed new life into the downtown district.
Featuring a lovely view of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and scenic landscaping and store fronts on the other, this pathway is the perfect place to go for a stroll through the heart of Myrtle Beach.
The 190-foot, neon-lit Myrtle Beach SkyWheel serves as the centerpiece of the Boardwalk, and visitors have easy access to many of the major attractions, restaurants and shops along the walkway.
The most popular gathering spot on the Boardwalk is the Promenade, where an outdoor stage plays host to free concerts and fireworks displays during the summer months and festivals are held year-round.
Second Avenue Pier serves as the southernmost point of the path, which becomes a concrete walkway that weaves through an undeveloped oceanfront landscape. The Boardwalk turns to wood as it reaches the strip of shops and restaurants downtown and heads north to Pier 14. There’s plenty to see and do in between and there is no admission charge.
