For decades, vacationers have come to North Myrtle Beach relax in the sand, salt air and warm temperatures. But before this area became a mecca for summertime visitors, the Grand Strand was a magnet for a few unsavory characters.
If you are the type of person that enjoys surf fishing, walks on the beach, or just watching the water and breathing in the salty sea air, take a tour of the many Myrtle Beach area piers. No matter where you are staying for your vacation, there are nearby piers to take you beyond the beach and into the ocean.
September in North Myrtle Beach means one thing: Shag Week (or the SOS Fall Migration). The meeting of the SOS (“Society of Stranders” or “Shaggers on the Strand”) Group attracts folks from all around the country to dance, reconnect with old friends, and enjoy the beach.

You'll find stores that appeal to everyone in the whole family in North Myrtle Beach, so nobody will be left behind on a shopping excursion.
