Myrtle Beach Tourist Attractions

If Hilton Head Island is the resort for the wealthy, Myrtle Beach is its counterpart for ordinary people. Here they will find endless broad sandy beaches - and, immediately beyond the beaches, equally endless lines of hotels. Amusement parks, country music clubs, more than 70 golf courses and almost 200 tennis courts, cater for a range of tastes in entertainment. A more tranquil atmosphere prevails in Brookgreen Gardens (Murrells Inlet).
