Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, South Carolina NC

Description

Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade is a wooden boardwalk and then winding concrete path beside the sea. It begins at Bermuda Sands Hotel in the west as a wide winding concrete path, and passes Second Ave Pier. Along it are festive colorful shade canopies and attractive lighting, and some cafes. Around SkyWheel, it becomes a raised, crowded, wooden boardwalk and passes many tacky tourist stores and rugged cafes with names like Dirty Don's. It passes Pier 14 and then the raised boardwalk ends at Bluegreen Seaglass Tower, an impressive building. At this point it becomes a sand path cutting through the dunes. 
The paved path runs for 1.2 miles, so you can have a nice long walk here! The crowds can get a bit annoying in the main tourist stretch, and it's hard to find any snack that doesn't look a bit dubious, but if you come just for a walk you can have a pleasant time admiring the sea.
For a classier area, check out Market Common, a twelve minute drive away, where you will find flower pots, fountains, landscaping, and restaurants. From there you can walk to a fantastic park and playground called Grand Park.
Another place to check out is 67th Avenue Beach, which is actually not as nice as the beach in front of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.
For another nice stroll beside the sea, check out Gardens by the Sea Park and the sidewalk the runs north from it.
If driving to Myrtle Beach from the north, stop at Airborne and Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville NC, along Highway 95, on the way. It is two hours from Myrtle Beach.
