Getting Around Myrtle Beach
The best way to get around Myrtle Beach is by car. If you're going to mostly stay around the beachfront hotels, you can easily manage on foot. However, a car is handy for going farther distances since there's no public transportation system. Car rental agencies are located just beyond the baggage claim area in Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), while plenty of taxis and door-to-door hotel shuttle services are lined up outside.
|On Foot||Most vacationers have no problem getting around Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area on foot. Although cost efficient (and good for you) it can be limiting if you want to explore beyond the shore.|
|Car||A car is the easiest way to get around, especially if you're planning on exploring beyond the waterfront. Parking is plentiful, but traffic, small street signs and an overdue (and slow) modernization of the roads can be confusing.|
|Taxi||Although taxis aren't too difficult to find, they can get somewhat pricey. When you get inside, make sure you specify whether you're going to Myrtle Beach or North Myrtle Beach. The border is invisible, but both towns have very different ways of numbering and naming their streets. A miscommunication over your final destination can end up costing you more than $100 dollars in taxi fare.|
