Enjoy a dose of Southern hospitality, Myrtle Beach style, when you visit its 60-mile Grand Strand, with water sports, endless golf courses and always lots to do.
Banana boats, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, sailing – it’s all close at hand. And if you love fishing, there are no limits to the types of fishing, from pier to deep sea charter fishing, saltwater to fresh water and inland fishing.
Many Canadians head to Myrtle Beach to golf. (It claims to be the “Golf Capital of the World.”) Tee off on North, South or Central Myrtle Beach golf courses, each designed to protect the natural habitat and wildlife indigenous to the area. They are technically challenging and aesthetically beautiful and have been created by world-famous golfers, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, and Greg Norman.
Good Eating/Good Shopping
You expect to find good fish and seafood in a coastal city – and you do, in eateries like the Sea Captain’s House, Bonefish Grill, Bimini’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Cafe. But there also are good rib, steak and lamb chop places, such as Carolina Roadhouse and Rioz Brizilian Steakhouse.
Shopping is a favourite pastime of Canadians who go south of the border and there is no shortage of interesting boutiques with original items at good prices. A notable shopping area is the Pawley’s Island Hammock Shop Village for an original Pawley’s Island rope hammock and other local goods.
Where to Stay
There are endless options from private rentals to major resorts. You might rent a surfside private apartment for as little as $50 a night. A full-service top resort with all the amenities can be as much as $380.
