Holiday Inn Neighborhood Attractions: 2nd Avenue Pier
One of the reasons our guests come back to the Myrtle Beach Holiday Inn at the Pavilion year after year is the great location. We’re right on the ocean and in the heart of Myrtle Beach, just a stone’s throw from many of the best attractions at the beach.
One of those great attractions is the Myrtle Beach 2nd Avenue Pier, which is located just about a mile down the beach from Holiday Inn at the Pavilion—you could even walk there, just stroll south along the beach or the Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade—you can’t miss it.
Originally built in 1936, the Pier at 2nd Avenue is a true Myrtle Beach landmark. It’s a great place to walk and enjoy the fresh sea air and gorgeous scenery or even to just watch people fishing!
If you enjoy fishing, the pier is a great place to do so. You can reel in a wide array of fish, from flounder and mackerel to winter trout and sea bass, depending on the time of year. You don’t need to bring your fishing gear, the pier bait shop will rent or sell everything you need - hook, line and sinker.
A daily fishing pass starts at $9, and rental packages start at $25 with a $10 deposit. You don’t need a fishing license; the pier pass keeps you covered. Be sure to show up early, as the early fisherman (and fisherwoman!) gets the fish!
Of course, you can enjoy a great meal at 2nd Avenue Pier even if you don’t catch your own. The Pier House Restaurant is a fantastic place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with amazing, panoramic views. There’s also an open air bar where you can sit back and sip on a drink and enjoy the fresh ocean air!
So next time you visit Holiday Inn at the Pavilion, give this piece of Myrtle Beach history a visit, just like our visitors have for 75 years!
