Guests seeking a one of a kind Myrtle Beach experience will love staying along the famous Myrtle Beach boardwalk. At just over a mile in length (and expanding soon!), the Myrtle Beach boardwalk is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach and offers a bustling beach scene for guests to enjoy.
Several Myrtle Beach resorts claim the boardwalk as their home, but one resort stands above the rest.
Not all Myrtle Beach boardwalk hotels are created equal. Many resorts are location downtown “near” the boardwalk but do not actually offer direct boardwalk access. Additionally, many properties that are located along the boardwalk are a hefty walk from all of the downtown activities.
Holiday Inn at the Pavilion not only provides direct boardwalk access, but also easy access to a wide array of area shops, restaurants, and attractions.
Walkable Area Attractions, Shops, & Dining
Being in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach certainly has its perks. Whether you are flying in from out of town and won’t have a vehicle or you just don’t want to deal with the hassle of navigating around town and fighting for parking, staying at a hotel in a walkable area of town is a huge convenience that not many Myrtle Beach hotels can offer.
Here are a few of the area attractions, shops, & restaurants that are located within walking distance of Holiday Inn at the Pavilion:
· Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium
· Mt. Atlanticus Minotaur Goff
· Myrtle Beach SkyWheel
· Myrtle Beach Zipline Adventure
· 14th Avenue Pier & 2nd Avenue Pier
· Gay Dolphin Gift Cove
· I Love Sugar
· Fun Plaza Arcade
· ART Burger Sushi Bar
· Ocean Front Bar & Grill
· Peaches Corner
· Mad Myrtle’s Ice Creamery
· Gordo’s Tacos & Tequila
· The Chemist
… Much More!
All of these great attractions, shops, and restaurants are located just a short walk from your hotel room – how convenient is that?
