The Grand Strand, the 60-mile stretch of ocean shore around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is indeed grand---with plenty to do on and off the beach. Start your South Carolina vacation at Alligator Adventure next to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, and catch glimpses of some of the 800+ alligators lurking in swamps and marshes. Heading south, Myrtle Beach State Park introduces visitors to a mile-long beach with programs about whales, sharks, and sea turtles. In Myrtle Beach you can feast on fresh local seafood at the Sea Captain's House oceanfront restaurant. Or, for a taste of She Crab Soup and other Low Country cuisine, try Lee's Inlet Kitchen just south in Murrells Inlet. The city is also home to Brookgreen Gardens with thousands of acres of plants and 550 sculptures. Pass through Pawleys Island and over an ocean inlet to historic Georgetown, South Carolina. Here you can catch a plantation boat tour with Cap'n Rod's Low country Plantation Tours or Captain Sandy's Plantation Tours and learn about the Old South's history and mysteries.
