Myrtle Beach's 1.2 mile oceanfront boardwalk is open for your enjoyment!  The groundbreaking was held Saturday, May 15, 2010, as part of our Beach Music Festival.  Here are some snapshots from the boardwalk's first year.

The boardwalk stretches from the Second Avenue Pier to the 14th Avenue Pier and feature threes different sections of varying width and shape.  The first section, the North Walkway, extends from the 14th Avenue North Pier to Plyler Park at the foot of Mr. Joe White Avenue.  It features a raised wooden deck, with dune landscaping and vegetation, to create a serene, peaceful and natural environment and beach experience.  The walkway in this section is eight feet wide with connecting pathways to beach access points.

The second section, the high-intensity portion of the boardwalk, extends from Plyler Park to Eighth Avenue North.  This section adjoins beachfront stores and shops and invokes a carnival and nostalgia atmosphere with its sights, sounds and energy.  This section ranges from 26 to 50 feet in width and features sidewalk cafes, arcades, amusements and more.

The third and final section, the South Promenade, continues from Eighth Avenue North to First Avenue North, just south of the Second Avenue Pier.  The South Promenade will be a lineal park promenade with benches and natural landscaping. This section offers relaxing views of the beach and passive recreational opportunities.  Main walkways are 12 feet wide, while secondary paths are eight feet wide.

Now that it's open, the Boardwalk and Promenade provides visitors and residents with a contrasting pedestrian alternative to Ocean Boulevard, a great view of the beach and a fun place to stroll, dine, shop and play.
