You don’t have to be an expert fisherman to cast a reel out into the Atlantic with the hopes of snaring a prize-winning fish. A great place to reel in a great catch is the Garden City Pier, in the quaint community of Garden City.

Garden City’s beaches are some of the most gorgeous along the Grand Strand. And the community’s 668-foot long pier is the heart of it all. There are rods available for rent, and you might consider all-night fishing - a fishing adventure for those night owls.

Not really into fishing, but want a great view of the ocean? The Garden City Pier charges no spectator fees, so head on out and take a peek. The kids in your family, both young and old, will also get a thrill out of the pier’s arcade. And don’t forget to grab a bite to eat at the Pieradise Café.

All in all, Garden City Pier is great for a quick fishing trip or a low-key afternoon taking in the sights of the Atlantic. So, come on down to the Garden!
