The town of Myrtle Beach is the hub of the 60-mile stretch of beach known as the Grand Strand. While Myrtle Beach itself is the most developed, several nearby towns are also loaded with attractions.

Myrtle Beach Towns and Beaches

Myrtle Beach

Massive resorts, arcades, water parks and shopping malls abound in this raucous neon-lit beach town, a favorite of bikers and bachelor-partiers from across the Southeast.

North Myrtle Beach

A notch calmer than Myrtle Beach, this town bills itself as the home of the Shag, a form of swing dancing set to old-fashioned rhythm and blues music.

Surfside Beach

Just south of Myrtle Beach, Surfside has plenty of restaurants and hotels lining its two-mile stretch of white sand. A lower-key atmosphere makes the town popular with families.

Garden City

Ten miles south of Myrtle Beach, this diminutive beach town was leveled by Hurricane Hazel in 1954 but has rebounded with a handful of hotels, mini golf courses and souvenir shops.

Murrells Inlet

Sleepy Murrells Inlet is the place to go for seafood. Long a fishing village, the town is now famous for the fried fish shacks that occupy "Restaurant Row."
