Attractions in Garden City Beach
The community takes great pride in being recognized as a family beach that offers fun-filled activities, such as Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and the Sun Fun Kids Fair. The new twelve thousand foot creek-walk offers walking, biking, bird watching, fishing and crabbing. Along Highway 17, Golden City shares some of the same characteristics that Grand Stand’s popular tourist thoroughfare is known for -- mainly restaurants, beachwear shops, amusement parks and various night spots. Before reaching the causeway, on the Golden City peninsula, you’ll feel quite removed from the hustle and bustle that energizes the main tourist sectors, where you’ll spot miles of marsh, exotic sea birds, and maybe even an alligator or two.
Once past the causeway, small ocean villages take form with scattered neighborhood taverns, eateries, shops and bait and tackle stores strewn about. The most prominent feature here is the Garden City Pier.
The Garden City Pier is the place to visit anytime of the year to take in the ocean breeze and scenery. Family-orientated fun and games, fishing or just relaxing and people-watching are the events of the day. Located about eight miles south of Myrtle Beach in the heart of Garden City Beach, the pier is more than six hundred feet long. It cost no charge to stroll the stretch, taking in the activities, inspecting the daily catches of the fishermen or enjoying the main attractions, which include an arcade, tackle shop and the main café that offers lunch and dinner, cocktails and nightly music and entertainment.
