Get in touch with nature

With over 60 miles of sandy beaches, plus world-class entertainment and attractions drawing vacationers to the Grand Strand, there’s no limit to the fun that can be had! But sometimes, you just want to relax and enjoy the peaceful beauty of your surroundings — It is a vacation, after all. Here are a few of our favorite places to get in touch with nature in North Myrtle Beach.

Russell Burgess Coastal Preserve

According to North Myrtle Beach of Parks and Recreation, this scenic preserve was created in 2004, and named for a former City Councilman devoted to preservation and maintenance of the Cherry Grove Marsh. Offering a picturesque overview of the marsh, the park is just two blocks from the beach, and provides ample paved parking and walking access to the inlet. A boardwalk was added in 2009 to protect important habitats of local flora and fauna.

Heritage Shores Nature Preserve

This seven-acre park is located on an island in the Cherry Grove Marsh, and features scenic walking paths and a winding, mile-long boardwalk. Established in 2007, it’s a great place for kayaking, fishing, and bird watching. Visitors can catch a glimpse of egrets, blue herons, pelicans, ospreys, hawks, owls and more in this thriving preserve.

Vereen Memorial Historical Gardens

This historic hidden gem is located in Little River near North Myrtle Beach. It features numerous hiking and biking trails, and wooden boardwalks crossing natural wetlands that are home to native wildlife and a diverse ecosystem. There is also a gazebo that looks over the Intracoastal Waterway, and picnic facilities.

Of course, you are vacationing at the beach, so be sure to spend plenty of time strolling on the sand, collecting seashells, and splashing in the ocean waves. And don’t forget to stop for a moment, look around, and take in the sights, sounds and salty air. There’s no better way to get in touch with nature!
