Getting Around Myrtle Beach

Once your group has arrived, don't fret over getting to your ultimate destination because the Grand Strand's network of roads has vastly improved to make traveling the Myrtle Beach area a breeze.

The 28-mile Veterans Highway (S.C. 22), a four-lane road that links U.S. 501 west of Conway and U.S. 17 north of Myrtle Beach, opened in 2001. The Carolina Bays Parkway (S.C. 31), which opened in December 2002, runs from S.C. 9 to U.S. 544; and eventually it will extend to U.S. 17 south of Myrtle Beach. Harrelson Boulevard, a new access road to Myrtle Beach International Airport from U.S. 17 Bypass, also opened in 2002. Other completed projects: Robert M. Grissom Parkway, which runs parallel to U.S. 17 Bypass and provides a passageway through central Myrtle Beach, and extensive improvements to U.S. 501 and S.C. 544, major thoroughfares to Myrtle Beach area.

Ocean Boulevard and Kings Highway (also known as Business Hwy. 17) run north and south along the Grand Strand parallel to the Atlantic Ocean. Highway 17 Bypass, a busy section of highway referred to by locals as simply "the Bypass," is the Grand Strand's westernmost route running parallel to the ocean. The Bypass begins in Murrells Inlet and continues northward until it merges with Kings Highway just before the Restaurant Row district. Mile markers are located on Business and Bypass Hwy. 17 to make navigation easier.

The Carolina Bays Parkway (S.C. 31) is a six-lane scenic highway from S.C. 9 to US 501 near Myrtle Beach Raceway.

The Robert M. Grissom Parkway is a four-lane route from 62nd Avenue North in Myrtle Beach to Harrelson Boulevard near the Myrtle Beach International Airport.

Parking meters are located between Kings Highway and the Ocean, from 29th Avenue South to 31st Avenue North.
