Spring is an exciting time of year on the Grand Strand, as we build up to the much-anticipated summer season with a slew of special events. Here are seven of our favorite ways to get the party started!

Monday After The Masters

April 13-15, 2019

What started out as a small get together to raise money for charity in 1994, has evolved into one of the top Celebrity Pro-Ams in the country. Thanks to the commitment of Hootie & the Blowfish, the MAM has generated millions of dollars for children’s educational programs and the South Carolina junior golf program.
Darius, Dean, Mark and Soni remain true to their philanthropic roots in hosting this one-of-a-kind event.

4th Annual Horry County Fair

April 19-28, 2019

Featuring local entertainment, unique vendors, thrilling rides and games, and your favorite carnival fare, this good old county fair is ten days of fun for the entire family! Taking place at the Myrtle Beach Speedway, highlights include character meet and greets, a petting zoo, NASCAR racing, and pig racing, too!

37th Annual North Myrtle Beach Easter Egg Hunt

April 20, 2019

Spring wouldn’t be quite complete without an egg hunt! Once again, the Easter Bunny will make a special visit to McLean Park in North Myrtle Beach to hand out candy and to pose for photos. The egg hunt begins at 10AM sharp, and is divided into areas by age, with more fun to follow.

14th Annual Myrtle Beach International Film Fest

April 23-27, 2019

We’ve been told the Myrtle Beach International Film Fest might just be the best film line up in the World! “Making art accessible for all,” MBIFF welcomes filmmakers and film enthusiasts to this annual event that features networking, forums, food, red carpet interviews, and movie magic — all against the beautiful backdrop of the Market Common in sunny Myrtle Beach.

SOS Spring Safari

April 25-May 4, 2019

Each year at the end of April, shaggers from all along the east coast head to the Grand Strand (the birthplace of shag) for the ten-day SOS Spring Safari. Expect dance parties to pop up at local lounges along Main Street and Ocean Drive, with live music and instructors offering lessons to the masses. This wild event culminates in a parade that brings locals and visitors out for an afternoon of fun and laughter.

14th Annual Mayfest on Main

May 11, 2019

This one-day, rain or shine event draws a large crowd looking to celebrate May and the beginning of summer. Along Main Street, visitors will find crafters, food vendors, and a community stage featuring live music and performances. Don’t forget your beach chairs! There will also be a special area just for kids.

38th Annual Blue Crab Festival

May 18-19, 2019

The World Famous Blue Crab Festival is one of the largest and most popular festivals in the Southeast. Bring your family and friends to the Historic Little River Waterfront for fresh local seafood, scenic views, live beach music, and unique souvenirs.

While the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk we know and love today officially opened in 2010, this oceanfront destination has a rich history dating back to the 1930’s.

Once a bustling promenade, Hurricane Hazel destroyed the original boardwalk in 1954. The 6.5 million dollar redesign took nearly nine months to build. Recently voted one of National Geographic’s top 10 U.S. boardwalks, it runs 1.2 miles along the oceanfront, from the 2nd Avenue Pier to the 14th Avenue Pier, and is dotted with shops, eateries, and attractions.

Although some things have changed, others remain the same. Here are five must-see landmarks on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk for both locals and visitors to enjoy!

The Gay Dolphin Gift Cove

A Myrtle Beach institution, this unique store has anchored the boardwalk since 1946, and is called the nation’s largest gift shop for a good reason. Standing at a whopping twenty six thousand square feet, the Gay Dolphin has seven levels of souvenirs, novelty items, and kitschy collectibles, and is a must-see!

Peaches Corner

Since 1937, Peaches Corner has been serving up traditional boardwalk fare, including foot-long hot dogs, juicy burgers, cheese fries, and hand-scooped ice cream favorites. Located at 9th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, a Grand Strand vacation isn’t complete without a stop at this nostalgic eatery, and a stroll on the beach.

2nd Ave Pier House Restaurant

A day on the pier and playing in the surf can really work up an appetite! The 2nd Avenue Pier House Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a million-dollar view of the Atlantic Ocean. Options include savory sandwiches and salads, fresh seafood, and delicious steaks. Open daily; this establishment is located on the 2nd Avenue Pier, a Myrtle Beach fixture since 1936.

The Bowery

This world-famous oceanfront bar and restaurant has been a part of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk since 1944, and is one of the coolest places to go for live music. Called the “8th Wonder of the World,” The Bowery is considered the home of country super group Alabama, and has a unique place in music history.

The SkyWheel

The newest kid on the block, this 187-foot tall Ferris wheel opened in 2011, and features 42 glass-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas. Each sits two to six people, and is fun for all ages. With breath-taking views of the ocean, this Myrtle Beach landmark is truly must-see and is hard to miss!
