Come Enjoy the New Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
A national morning show featured the Myrtle Beach boardwalk as one of the best in the United States in a broadcast on Wednesday. NBC's Today Show included Myrtle Beach in a segment on Travel + Leisure magazine's top boardwalks.
The 1.2 mile long boardwalk took almost nine months and seven million dollars to build. Located along the beach between the 14th street pier and 2nd street pier the walkway is directly on the beach and provides a spectacular view of the water.
The new structure is used for festivals and celebrations all summer long including the Hot Summer Nights Celebration which includes live concerts, kid’s carnivals, and fireworks. The boardwalk provides oceanfront views of the pristine beach line, numerous shops and restaurants along its path, and is divided into three different sections.
1. The northernmost portion winds down from the 14th Avenue North Pier to Plyler Park.
2. The mid-section is located from Plyler Park to the former Pavilion Amusement Park site at 8th Avenue North and encompasses more of a carnival-like atmosphere with oceanfront dining and businesses.
3. The southernmost end of the boardwalk leading up to the 2nd Avenue pier has a meandering oceanfront park.
With shopping, dining, and activities for the entire family the Myrtle Beach boardwalk provides another outstanding reason to visit Myrtle Beach this summer.
