The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk has welcomed thousands of tourists and locals alike to the best resorts and condos in Myrtle Beach as they stroll the protected sand dunes, breathe the salt air and enjoy the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. The Boardwalk stretches beachfront along Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach, from 1st Avenue North to 14th Avenue North and covers 1.2 miles of oceanfront. The raised wooden Boardwalk features numerous covered bench alcoves where you can sit, relax and snap pictures of the beautiful ocean and beach surrounding you. The Boardwalk has easy access from all oceanfront hotels, motels and Myrtle Beach condo rentals, such as the Bay View on the Boardwalk.

The mid-section of the Boardwalk, around Plyler Park, features the merchants area. Here visitors can shop for souvenirs, beach gifts and eat until they’ve had their fill in the best shops and restaurants on the Boardwalk. All of the Boardwalk food merchants have outside tables and chairs to allow patrons a chance to eat, drink and enjoy the view. Special events, such as the Hot Summer Nights Concert Series are held around this area of the boardwalk.

A local icon, The Bowery, where the original country super-group Alabama was the house band for many years, is located just one-half block off the boardwalk. Ripley’s Believe or Not, another Myrtle Beach main attraction is located around the corner from The Bowery.

The Boardwalk is pet friendly. From the day after Labor Day to May 1, dogs on a leash will be allowed on the boardwalk at any time. During the summer, leashed dogs are allowed from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. only. Rest rooms are available all along the route and are clearly marked. Each intersecting street has a concrete marker, so you always know where you’re at along the boardwalk route. Many Myrtle Beach condo rentals are within walking distance to the Boardwalk so we encourage you to venture out and take in the sights.

National Geographic Magazine has ranked our Boardwalk third on its Top Ten List of Boardwalks and the staff at The Today Show ranked it second, behind the world-famous Coney Island Boardwalk.
