How to Get Around on Your Vacation to Myrtle Beach

If you’re looking forward to a vacation on Myrtle Beach, you might be wondering how you’re going to get from place to place. Luckily, it’s easy to reach any attraction from just about anywhere! There are tons of transportation options including planes, golf carts, beach bikes, and more. Getting around the area should be no problem during your next stay in a Myrtle Beach vacation rental!

Where are the Main Things to do in Myrtle Beach?

If you’re looking to hit a bunch of big attractions in one spot, we’d recommend making your way to the boardwalk. The boardwalk runs from 1st Avenue North to 16th Avenue North, and you can find everything from boutiques and restaurants to souvenir shops and family-friendly activities. There are also lots of events going on throughout the year, so no matter when you visit, you’ll likely wind up on the boardwalk to experience one of these festivals!

The boardwalk is also just down the road from other attractions like the Family Kingdom Amusement Park and Rockin’ Jump Myrtle Beach Trampoline Park. There are also multiple grocery stores nearby for you to grab any essentials you want to take back to your rental.

Where is the Airport?

If you’re flying in and out of Myrtle Beach, you’ll want to be familiar with Myrtle Beach National Airport (MYR), located at 1100 Jetport Road. Once you land at the Myrtle Beach airport, you can head to the rental car center to select an option from one of eight national car rental companies.

The majority of these counters are open daily from 7 a.m. until midnight, so no matter what time your flight comes in, you’ll easily be able to grab a car big enough for your entire family.


Many people choose to drive to and around Myrtle Beach, but you certainly don’t have to. Traffic can actually get pretty bad on the main roads, mainly because Myrtle Beach doesn’t have direct access to a highway. However, the Strand Highway and the Conway Bypass are your two major roads in Myrtle Beach. You’ll also want to be familiar with Robert Grissom Parkway and Mr. Joe White Avenue to get you around.

Other Transportation Options

In addition to all of these great options, there are even more transportation methods for you to check out. Cabs and Ubers are abundant in the city, and it’s easy to flag one down at almost any time of the day. You can also hop on the bus on the Coast RTA transit system. You can pay your bus fare in bills or coins, or if you plan to use the bus frequently, you can purchase a pass.
