That other pier...

Garden City's "smaller pier" is free to walk - and it is almost hidden!
For a quiet pier for families and anyone who wants some space for fishing, crabbing or just hnging out, Google for directions, or take Business south to Garden City Beach. You will see two ocer-sized signs: One says Garden City Connector - the other end says Pine Ave. - both signs point left. Go 1/2 mile to the dead end. Turn left and go to the end of Elizabeth.The park is straight ahead. Pull in and park free. You'll see a play area, outdoor barbecue stands, picnic tables and a pavilion. Just past this point you will see a really nice pier. At the end of the pier you will find a shelter: And to the left you will see some steps. You can crab from the shelter and seldom see anyone. I've seen people pulll up crabs here, and I'm always surprised to see it relatively unchanged. P.S. Let's keep it that way!

You're not "up north" anymore, so don't forget your sunscreen...and DO NOT forget a hat!

Also, be sure to check the daily reports from the SC Dept. of Natural Resources Salt Water Trends to sty current with National Resources information.
