SWIM
Whether from a vintage hotel
room, a comfy condo, a
rented home or a simple tent
or camper in one of the many
seaside camping facilities, the
warm waters of the Atlantic
promise a beach vacation full
of wave- and sun-filled fun
for swimmers, sun-bathers
and shell-seekers where the sea
meets the shore.
SWING
From the multitude of championship-level golf courses
available to the public that
challenge golfers of all skill
levels, to the elation of scoring
a hole-in-one at one of the
many family-friendly minigolf courses around town, the
dimpled white golf ball has
found a natural home along
the Grand Strand. Tee it up!
UNWIND
Whatever rows your boat can
be found at Barefoot Landing, with more than 100 shops,
restaurants and entertainment
options connected by boardwalks. If something fresh off the
boat is your goal, head to the
moss-draped village of Murrells Inlet for a stroll along The
MarshWalk and dinner overlooking the water. Find other
low-key options in North Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island.
