The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is located in the heart of town, the Boardwalk stretches from 2nd Ave Pier to 14th Ave Pier and offers beautiful parks, breathtaking views of the beach, dining, shopping and enthralling events and attractions for all.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade is a far cry from the boardwalk of the 1930’s and 40’s that was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel in 1954. And with the closing of the Pavilion in 2006, Myrtle Beach was ready for a beachfront facelift and an area for locals and visitors alike to call home. In May of 2010, after almost using 10,000 bolts, 300,000 nails, 555,000 screws, and 800,000 feet of lumber the nearly $7 million dream had its official opening and the Grand Strand has not been the same since. The Boardwalk received national acclaim when Travel and Leisure magazine rated it among the best in the US with a number 2 ranking and National Geographic was impressed as well awarding a 3rd place ranking. The Today Show featured the Boardwalk and Promenade leaving no doubt that when you come to Myrtle Beach this is one spot you don’t want to miss.
