And if you don't already know, there is much to see outside the city limits! Be sure to visit Murrells Inlet and take a walk on the the Marshwalk! You'll find excellent restaurants, live entertainment, seasonal events and beautiful views. Don't forget your camera or smart phone, because you WILL want photos! Plus, it's free to walk.)
Another gem not to be missed is Pawleys Island, located just 10 miles south of Murrells Inlet. Check the link. There is always something happening in the garden-like atmosphere. Spend a couple hours in the Hammock Shops. Have lunch there and shop for those "must have" items in thee unique stores. Cross the bridge to the island and enjoy sight seeing.

From Sylvia in Mich. (July 20, 2019) Hello, Patricia. I follow you on Facebook and often use your pages for obtaining information about my favorite beach. Thanks for all you do, especially for the beautiful photos you post. People are often quick to complain, but they don't say thank you very much. So thanks for being there and for all of us who love Myrtle Beach.

From G. Oswald in Toledo, Ohio: January 1, 2019 -I found your website when our family was planning a vacation at Myrtle Beach. We've been looking for something different than we were finding in the most popular Myrtle Beach searches. Your information was great! There is LIFE outside the Myrtle Beachh city limits and you know where to go and how to get there. Thanks to your message board, and other pages on your site, we are planning a GREAT ADVENTURE in 2019: North Myrtle Beach, Garden City Beach, Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island. Maybe we'll tke a trip to the islands surrounding Charleston! Happy New Year to your and yours!

From Jennifer S. in Ohio (12/6/17) You really have the best Myrtle Beach guide in Myrtle Beach. Thank you for all you do. We also love your Facebook photos which helps us stay connected with our favorite beach.

From M.D.O.  in Burlington, NC 11/19/15 "Dear Patricia, I'm the guy who called you last week from our hotel room. We were just laying around wondering what we should do. On a whem I called your websight. You asked about the family, the youngeter's ages and what they enjoy. You were so friendly and helpfuI had to write and say thank you. We could tell you know everything about Myrtle and took your time to be sure the suggestions were something we would really enjoy doing. We took our boys to play mini golf and to that UpsidDown building. The women loved Broadway and Barefoot. But what stands out most is the drive from Myrtle Beach down to Pawleys Island. It was amazing! We had researched Myrtle Beach, but we didn't know these little towns existed. Delightful! Thank you!

From  4/14/16 Sally M. in Trenton, NJ : You answerd when I called! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions and for your suggestions about what to do in Myrtle Beach. It was like having a friend living in a city where we want to vacation.

From  12/10/16 LynnLee in Baltimore, MD : Thank you for taking my call. As I mentioned, we have a special needs child and wanted information on family things to do. I would never have known about Savannah's Park if you had not told me. What a wonderful addition to Myrtle Beach! Wish you could have seen her smile and giggle! It would just break your heart. We also loved your tips on looking for sea shells. We did as you suggested and went to one of those "beach" stores (Eagle, I think) and bought a bag of shells that we scattered around our motel. The "Shell hunt" was successful (even the real shells my husband and I found at the ocean edge. Our vacation as a delight, thanks to you! I never knew you could pick up the phone and call a local. We will be back. God bless you.
