South Carolina Has Many Historic Attractions
Myrtle Beach, a popular vacation destination and southern city on the shores of South Carolina, is the cultural center of the Grand Strand. It is known for its classic car racing, southern hospitality and annual international music festivals. It is also known for the many celebrity-designated golf courses.
Along its famed beachfront boardwalk is the traditional flea market, where locals and visitors can enjoy art and crafts, live music, restaurants and bars, and plenty of shopping. On the boardwalk is also a historic museum of the town’s history. Travelers who want to explore the grand strand can take a railroad ride. The train leaves the station every half hour and takes riders along a two-mile stretch of beach. At each end of this stretch, there is a store, bar, or restaurant featuring merchandise from the area’s most prominent residents and manufacturers.
