Only minutes away from the Ocean Club Resort is the famous Myrtle Beach Boardwalk! A destination for all visitors to the Grand Strand, the Boardwalk offers great food, live entertainment, shopping, thrill rides and more. Best, it’s set along the backdrop of sand and surf that only Myrtle Beach can provide. We want to make sure you experience all that the Boardwalk has to offer on your next stay with us, so we’re highlighting some of our favorite attractions!
One of the most eye-catching and popular attractions on the Boardwalk is the immediately recognizable Myrtle Beach Skywheel. Sitting 200 feet above sea level, this state of the art Ferris Wheel features 42 enclosed gondolas that give riders extraordinary panoramic views of the Atlantic, the scenic beaches, and the surrounding Grand Strand.
Halloween may have passed, but the frights still continue at the Nightmare Haunted House, where visitors have been thrilled for over 30 years by the creative and exciting terrors within. Be sure to bring your friends with the strongest constitutions, it can get scary!
For a walkthrough of something less frightening but still just as mystifying, Ripley’s Believe It or Not is a museum of the world’s greatest oddities, curiosities and more! This is the only place in Myrtle Beach where you’ll find shrunken heads, hands-on exhibits, and a Transformer sculpture, all up close!
After so much excitement, some delicious food will be in order. Luckily, the Boardwalk features some of Myrtle Beach’s best restaurants! The Landshark Bar and Grill offers Jimmy Buffett’s signature island theme, along with Landshark beer, delicious seafood and burgers, along with a relaxing beach atmosphere. For a restaurant with some more local history, along with some of the area’s best live music, make sure to visit The Bowery. A mainstay of live entertainment and great food since 1944, The Bowery is world famous for its Southern charm and great spirit.
For those with a sweet tooth, or those searching for a bit of dessert after hitting one of the great restaurants, check out I Love Sugar for a confectionary experience like no other. This 6,000 square foot store combines the childhood fantasy of candy superstores with the guilty pleasures of adulthood for an unforgettably sweet experience. From gummy bears on the ceiling to murals of Swedish Fish, I Love Sugar is a must-see for any visitors to the Boardwalk.
And this is only barely scratching the surface of all the fun that the Boardwalk has to offer, only a short distance away from Ocean Club Resort! From fine dining to live events to exciting thrills, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk has it all. Be sure to ask our front desk for more recommendations!
