For more than 50 years, the old Pavilion Amusement Park in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach was a magical place to visit.

Although the 11-acre amusement park closed in 2006, some of the rides have found a second home at Broadway at the Beach, in the appropriately named Pavilion Nostalgia Park. The crown jewel of them all – the Herschell-Spillman Carousel, which dates back to 1912 – still brings smiles to the faces of children and adults alike.

Pavilion Nostalgia Park remains a piece of Grand Strand history, just in a different location. Be sure to take a spin next time you’re in Myrtle Beach.
