Loiok here for 100+ Things To Do when you visit Myrtle Beach

~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Head down to Garden City Beach! Here you can walk the FREE Garden City Pier. I think this is the only pier left in the Grand Strand where you can still walk the pier without a fee. You'll find free parking at the bottom of the pier, and under it as well.

While you're in Garden City, don't miss the smaller public pier where you can enjoy the free Children's Park, view some lovely scenery, and even go crabbing. It is named Sanford D Cox, Sr. Community Park.
Garden City Beach Pier 1.
Garden City Beach Pier 2,
Directions: Take17 Bus. 17 south, toward Garden City Beach. You'll see two overhead signs - one says Garden City Connector, and the other says Pine Ave. - both signs point left. Turn left here and go about half a mile to the dead end at Elizabeth. The park is straight ahead at the dead end. Pull in and you can park free.

My tips to help you find seashells   Looking for that special seashell? Beachcombing is free and fun for your entire family, and all ages love this activity!

Public Parks and recreational areas are always free to the public. See the list on this link and find a public park near your vacation rental!

Walk the Marshwalk at Murrells Inlet. In my opinion, this should be at the top of your list. Don't forget your camera! The Veterans' Pier provides beautiful views of Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet.

If bikes are your thing, check out Bike the Waccamaw Neck. This flat paved trail parallels US 17 from Murrells Inlet to Sandy Island Road near Huntington Beach State Park. By using the completedsectionsof trails and roads Share the Road signs, you can ride (or even walk) from Murrells Inlet to Pawleys Island. Map of Bike the Neck. Another suggestion for biking is the Pawleys Island Loop
