Ah, the boardwalk. It is a staple of beach destinations across this country, and ours just happens to be a great one.

The 1.2-mile Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade opened in 2010 and instantly became a hit with both visitors and locals alike.

What’s not to like? There are arcades, delicious restaurants, fantastic music, a huge SkyWheel that gives you the absolute best views of the Myrtle Beach area and an opportunity to walk hand-in-hand with that special someone while the Atlantic Ocean creates the perfect ambiance.

There is also plenty of shade for those looking for an escape from that big, yellow ball in the sky.

When you are vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area, a trip to the boardwalk is a must!
