The Grand Strand has no shortage of photo opportunities to satisfy the shutterbugs in your travel group. Here are our top picks for photos along the Grand Strand.
Top Spots for Snapshots in the Myrtle Beach Area
1. Brookgreen Gardens
Get your camera ready for an array of colors, walking paths, animals, blooms, and sculptures at this 9,100-acre property located just south of Myrtle Beach. Named one of the top 5 favorite gardens by Southern Living Magazine readers, this is a must-visit for every photographer.
2. Myrtle Beach State Park
Right in the heart of the Grand Strand is Myrtle Beach State Park. Beautiful beaches, a fishing pier, paths for hiking in the woods and a nature center with live animals will present many photo opportunities for the nature lover. Fees do apply for entrance into the park.
3. Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
The snapshots along the 1.2 mile Myrtle Beach Boardwalk completed in May 2010 will be a mix of scenic views of the ocean and street photography with nostalgic backdrops like the decades old Peaches Corner. The Myrtle Beach Skywheel, also on the boardwalk, provides an opportunity for great aerial pictures of the beach and ocean views.
4. Fishing Piers
From Cherry Grove to Surfside, Myrtle Beach has plenty of piers to photograph. The leading lines of the pier surrounded by rippling water and vibrant skies make great elements for a gorgeously composed photograph. Hit the beach early or during the golden hour to capture a frame-worthy image. Popular piers include Cherry Grove Pier, Myrtle Beach State Park, 2nd Avenue Pier and Springmaid Pier.
