How far South does the Boardwalk go? We are staying at Holiday Sands North in April and I was just wondering if it goes that far?

The Boardwalk starts at 2nd Ave.N and extends to the 14th Avenue Pier. So you'll be at 4th Ave.N, near the south end of the Boardwalk.

Here's a link to the City site which has pictures of the boardwalk http://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/boardwalk.html

This is from the Chamber of Commerce:

Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade
Myrtle Beach's new Oceanfront Boardwalk is open for your enjoyment. The 1.2 mile-long Boardwalk and Promenade traverses through the sand from the 14th Avenue to 2nd Avenue Piers in Myrtle Beach. The boardwalk provides oceanfront views of the pristine beachline, numerous shops and restaurants along its path, and is divided into three different sections:

The northernmost portion winds down from the 14th Avenue North Pier to Plyler Park.
The mid-section is located from Plyler Park to the former Pavilion Amusement Park site at 8th Avenue North and encompasses more of a carnival-like atmosphere with oceanfront dining and businesses.
The southernmost end of the boardwalk leading up to the 2nd Avenue pier has a meandering oceanfront park.
Hotels on the Boardwalk & Promenade
Holiday Sands North - 400 N. Ocean Blvd.
Bay View Resort - 504 N. Ocean Blvd.
Holiday Inn At The Pavilion - 1200 N. Ocean Blvd.
The Windsurfer Hotel - 210 N. Ocean Blvd.
Bermuda Sands - 104 N. Ocean Blvd.
Boardwalk Dining
Pier House Restaurant / Pier View Bar


Summer on the Boardwalk
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is home to festivals and events all summer long including Ocean Boulevard's Hot Summer Nights at Plyler Park located in the heart of the downtown area. Highlights of Hot Summer Nights include:

Live Concerts on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
A "Kids Carnival" on Monday nights featuring inflatables, bounce houses, face painters, jugglers, balloon artists, stilt walkers and more!
Wednesday night features an amazing fireworks display off the 2nd Avenue Pier.
Sunday nights feature juggling, acrobatics, a fire show, stilt walkers, human statues and more!
Thursday features a strolling bagpiper on the Boardwalk and on Friday, a strolling Dixieland band.
We hope you enjoy the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk on your next vacation to the Myrtle Beach Area!

Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Facts
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk took nine months to build, cost close to $7 million and is made up of nearly 800,000 feet of lumber. Builders used about 300,000 nails, 555,000 screws and 10,000 bolts to complete the project!


If you would like to strech your dollar while visiting the area and help out a local charity,
take a look at MyrtleBeachPromotions.com

Enjoy the beach

I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot of time there. Sounds like the perfect place for a meet up. What will parking be like?

There's a big parking area between the 2nd Ave Pier restaurant and Ocean Blvd. and It's free to park there. We've been several times, and always found a parking space. But it it's full, you'll need to find a meter.

We walked the entire length of the Boardwalk this past week, and it is beautiful. We had cheeseburgers for lunch on the Boardwalk at the outdoor seating area for the Oceanfront Bar & Grill. They've really cleaned that area up! We hit the arcade for a little while, and then did some shopping at the Gay Dolphin. We had a few hours to kill and the weather was perfect, so we got some ice cream and walked from one end to the other.

For the hotels in the area, this has to be awesome. The ones that attached to the Boardwalk have all cleaned-up their areas, and some have Tiki Bars with signs welcoming the general public. The Giant Wheel is progressing, and everything looks great. The new paved walkways across Ocean Boulevard have been extended almost all of the way down to the Family Kingdom. And the BIGGEST surprise of all (for us) was the fact that they took down the fences around the lot that was the old Pavilion. It's green-space now, and just looks sooooo much better.

Parking at the meters was expensive (as always), but we found a downtown parking map that showed areas where it is cheaper. We'll seek out those cheaper parking areas on our visit this summer.

Can you share that parking map, or where you found it? Last year I ended up at the paying lots which are a ripoff, because there wasn't any metered or open parking spaces. Thanks!

It was a small, foldout, printed brochure for the downtown area. We picked it up at one of the grocery stores.

Love the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk! Whether it's just sitting and catching the breeze or having a glass of iced tea at the Oceanfront Bar and Grill. My profile pic is me and my dog Sammy taking a walk on the boardwalk.

While my friend Bill was in town, we walked down to the 2nd Ave Pier and Bill must've taken a hundred pictures.

Well, it's about 10 blocks - so in miles?

A city block size can vary; but it's likely just under a mile...

Thank's Mile L.
That will be a just right little run for me in the mornings when we are there.
