Explore an Array of Excellent Eats Within an Easy Walk of The Breakers Resort

When on vacation, it’s common (and often even the norm) for traveling families and couples to head out for a taste of the town. And when staying in the Myrtle Beach area — a prime foodie destination that’s home to approximately 2,000 full-service eateries —  finding a good place to eat is hardly ever a challenge. (In fact, the real challenge lies in choosing which restaurant you’ll visit.)


So, for those staying in the heart of Myrtle Beach, venturing out to an amazing eatery can often be achieved without the need for a car, a taxi or even a bike — as a broad and diverse selection of tasty restaurants can be reached on foot. And that’s exactly the case at The Breakers Resort, where a long list of great places to eat can be found within walking distance.
