Myrtle Beach is one of the top vacation destinations on the east coast. It’s a family-friendly destination with a few fun facts that many people aren’t aware of before visiting the area. The Boardwalk, a long wooden walkway lined with various shops and attractions, spans a little over one mile. Highway 17 is the main road that runs from one end of the Grand Strand to the other. The road is also known as Kings Highway. There are over 60 miles of sandy beaches that make up the Myrtle Beach area from Ocean Isle to Long Bay, an area at the southernmost tip.
Most of the days in Myrtle Beach are filled with sunshine with an average temperature of 77 degrees. There are over 100 golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area, but not all of them are the courses that you might picture. Many of them are miniature golf courses and smaller courses with half of the 18 holes that you would normally think about where golf is concerned. Seafood is the most popular type of restaurant in the area with hamburgers and pizza coming in next as these are meals that many tourists enjoy getting when they visit the sunny city.
