Lucky us, we live in Garden City which is only about 10 minutes away from downtown Myrtle Beach.  Last week when Hubby had a good day, we went to visit the new Boardwalk.  It runs from 3rd Avenue to 14th Avenue Pier on the ocean side and is truly a beautiful work of art!  You are now able to enter all the unique shops, restaurants, arcade, ice cream stands, etc. from the boardwalk and still view the ocean front!  We were there about an hour, walked the whole time except for getting ice cream and of course stopping in at the Gay Dolphin to just look at all the shells, jewelry and unique gifts. 

This was entitled "World's Largest Inflatible Water Slide" and hubby estimated it at 3 stories high!  It is a city block long and is in a clear lot across from Ripley's Believe It or Not and borders a part of the boardwalk. 

Boardwalks are a great Tourist attraction and are very good for business in Myrtle Beach or wherever they are.  The Chamber of Commerce is happy with this addition and there are some businesses interested in moving to the area as they know the boardwalk will bring a lot of visitors as well as locals to walk, eat, and enjoy the beach.

Hope you enjoyed my little tour of this latest addition and that you will visit the area sometime in the near future to see for yourself.  I have not been down there at night as yet but I am looking forward to seeing the lovely nostalgic lamplights at night all along the walk!
God Bless and come again soon.  Hubby has been having some bad days with the Multiple Myeloma so I have not been posting.  Please keep him in your prayers.  Thanks!

I certainly enjoyed my visit. I loved the photo's the beach looked lovely. I lived in Spain for a while closeby to my son and was only a few minutes from the beach. now I am back in the UK I live 2 minutes from the beach and enjoy it very much.
Thabks for a lovely trip.



Looks like a great place! I live in Mi. and our town has a similar location on the lake.

Kerrie, thank you for sharing this. I had heard about it, but I have not been to Myrtle Beach in years. Maybe one of these days.

I am so saddened to learn of Bill's flare up. I know you never get used to it. You are both always in my prayers.

Oh, thanks so much for the tour! I love a boardwalk - it reminds me of visiting Atlantic City when I was a young girl. I think boardwalks are wonderfully old-fashioned - in the best possible way!

Sorry to hear about your Husband.

I think that last time I was in Myrtle Beach was about 15 years ago! Thanks for the tour!
