Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and the surrounding Grand Strand communities work hard to make our beaches enjoyable to people with all abilities. Whether that means you’re coming to town in a wheelchair or need sensory-friendly activities, there are plenty of options to make the most out of your vacation and experience it all.
Wheelchair Rentals Around Myrtle Beach
Beach-going wheelchairs are available in the City of Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach as well as at Huntington State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park. These chairs are offered at no charge for daily use and come with large tires for easy trips to and from the beach. Call the city where you’re staying to reserve your chair for each day. If you need a long-term rental you can contact Wheelchairs and Scooters of Myrtle Beach or the Mobility Center for rentals of all kinds.
Broadway at the Beach also offers wheelchair and scooter rentals on-site at the kiosk near the Guest Services Center during the spring and summer months. During the off-season chairs are available by calling 843-446-8723. Wheelchair services are available at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach at the Visitor Center.
