The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Friday, March 29, 2013 – by OVR Staff
So you’ve come to Myrtle Beach with your family, but perhaps you’re not one who actually likes getting sand between your toes. What to do? How about taking a stroll along our new boardwalk! The new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk stretches for a mile and a half between the 2nd Ave. Pier all the way up to Plyler Park at 14th Ave. North. You’ll pass right by the area in the middle of downtown where the Pavilion amusement park used to be. Of course, there are all the wonderful shops and eateries along the way!

The new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk was built in 2010, ready to welcome a whole new generation of visitors and tourists who make up the face of our wonderful city. For years, the downtown area embodied what people knew Myrtle Beach to be. The Pavilion and all its rides, the Magic Attic and its non-stop concerts and parties for teens in a safe environment, as well as the various restaurants and attractions. Since The Magic Attic, The Pavilion and some other spots are no longer there, it was the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into Myrtle Beach with one of the most fabulous boardwalks anywhere. There’s no shortage of attractions around the boardwalk. One of the best is the brand new SkyWheel. Take a ride in it and get the best view anywhere of the entire Grand Strand. Situated right on the ocean, the view can’t be beat! And don’t forget to have some fun at a brand new miniature golf complex on a historic site—the place where the iconic Chesterfield Inn of the 1930’s used to stand.
Summer is going to be here before you know it, and the new Boardwalk will have lots of family-friendly activities. For the kids, Monday nights will be carnival night and will feature bouncy houses, face painting and lots of other fun activities. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday will feature concerts and as always, a wonderful fireworks show on Wednesdays. Friday nights you will be able to walk the Boardwalk and enjoy the area’s favorite Dixieland band, and on Sundays, you can be enchanted with human statues, acrobatics and even fire shows!
The $6.5 million Myrtle Beach Boardwalk was a massive undertaking for the city but has proven to be money and time well spent. Our downtown area needed a new injection of fresh fun and we’ve received just that with the new Boardwalk! So whether you want to just take a stroll and enjoy the breezes from the ocean or come to have some serious family fun, you will find it all at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Come and see what it’s all about this year!
