A Local's Guide to Garden City

Sitting on the South Carolina shoreline in the Grand Strand region, Garden City is a popular tourist destination packed with beach vacation rentals. With its family-friendly atmosphere, mild weather, and huge range of activities, it is no wonder that families return to this beach community year after year. The town is easily accessible, near to many other popular towns such as Surfside Beach, and is just a short drive south of Myrtle Beach and airport. Murrels inlet lies on one side of the resort, and house rentals here are still within easy reach of the town center and Garden City beach.

The geography of the island helps to make it so unique, as the narrow peninsula of land is sandwiched between tidal marshes of Murrells Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean, meaning that almost all the vacation rentals in Garden Beach offer beautiful views both from the front and back of the property.

Because of the town’s fantastic location, it is a gateway to both the Atlantic Ocean and the inlet, so has become a popular spot for a range of water-based activities, such as fishing and crabbing. The beautiful shoreline and beach area are definitely the number one attraction, with the 668-foot fishing pier serving as the heart of the community. During the day, anglers sit on the pier with their lines cast over the water, and by night, the pier and coastline come alive with amusements, live music, and busy restaurants.. The Garden City Pavilion Arcade is also likely to be a buzz of activity, especially in the summer months, with people trying their luck to win some prizes on the assortment of machines.

Atlantic Avenue is the geographic and social center of Garden City, where there is always something going on to keep the entire family happy. Sam’s Corner boasts world-famous hot dogs, and a visit to the town would not be complete without sampling at least one.

The Brookgreen Gardens is a very popular tourist destination in Murrells Inlet. The gardens are home to a variety of sculptures, as well as flowers and fountains. Guests love joining the pontoon boat ride and exploring the small museum that houses a range of intricate wood carvings.

The town is also known for having a wide selection of Garden city vacation rentals and condos that makes traveling with a large group, be it family or friends, easy and hassle-free.
