Make it a great day by getting exercise while visiting The Beach - truly a walker's paradise! Walking is known to be one of the best and safest forms of exercise one can do.
There are plenty of places to walk in our area, from sunrise to sunset, from Little River all the way down to Pawleys Island. There are great parks, beaches, sidewalks, zoos, natural gardens, and entertainment shopping complexes to walk around and enjoy. Many walkers come here because of our 60 miles of beautiful tropical coastline to stroll up and down. There are piers to see and places to stroll like the Boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach, Ocean Drive, sidewalks of Surfside Beach and Garden City Beach, right down to the walking path which runs from Murrells Inlet to the Huntington Beach area.
There are plenty of parks to walk in around the Myrtle Beach area. Here is a handy list of some of them:

There are several shopping venues and entertainment complexes that offer the chance to walk as you shop, dine, and enjoy festivals and live music such as the Market Common village, a modern urbane city-within-a-city place of beautiful landscapes surrounding upscale shops, restaurants, and a sports park. Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach has the same great appeal as the Market Common. Broadway at the Beach is another local favorite and don't forget the Marsh Walk, a small boardwalk in Murrells Inlet, where the down-home-rockin'-bluesy southern appeal stretches around a natural inlet marsh, along a row of wonderful restaurants, most offering live entertainment, and where there's always some kind of watersport activity going on.
Wherever you decide to walk, the Myrtle Beach area is a fantastic place to do it, so put on your comfortable walking shoes and get out and see the beauty of our area!
