Myrtle Beach Guide

Myrtle Beach North Carolina

We are excited to share our first-ever BKLS City Guide, and our first city is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina [SC]. I took a short trip to Myrtle Beach, SC, in July. For four glorious days and three relaxing nights, I enjoyed great food, sunsets, sunrises, fresh air, sun, and sand. And I thought I would share my top threes of where to stay, breakfast [4], brunch, dinner, and explore. It has been a while since I have traveled anywhere, and I tried to include as much as possible without it being overwhelming. So enjoy our Myrtle Beach Guide.

Spread over 60 miles of the mid-Atlantic coastline, it is not a surprise that Myrtle beach receives over 19 million visitors a year. Nestled in South Carolina, the exotic beach area lies between Little River and Pawleys Island.

Whether a solo getaway, family holiday, or a vacation full of fun, this tourist destination in Grand Strand has much more to offer than sightseeing at the extended sandy beaches.

In this comprehensive BKLS city guide, you can find all the information on the Myrtle Beach itinerary for four day and three-night stay.
