Taking a walk along the Atlantic beach is a lot more fun these days thanks to Myrtle Beach’s new Boardwalk and Promenade. Stretching from the Second Avenue Pier to the 14th Avenue Pier, the Boardwalk and Promenade treat visitors to great views of the Atlantic Ocean while they enjoy numerous shops and restaurants along the way.

The 187-foot-tall  SkyWheel is situated as a centerpiece of the 1.2-mile-long Boardwalk and Promenade. With 42 climate-controlled and fully enclosed gondolas, the SkyWheel gives riders a spectacular view of the Grand Strand.
