Spend your family vacation at one of Bluegreen Resorts’ four comfortable and affordable properties in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, area, and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape as well as convenient access to the city’s popular Boardwalk, SkyWheel, and downtown.
Murrells Inlet lies only about 10 miles from the city of Myrtle Beach, but opens onto a world far removed from busy urban life. The quiet small town, an old fishing village, possesses its own distinctive history and culture in a setting of stunning natural beauty. With its clusters of live oaks, the town serves as the backdrop for weddings and honeymoon trips. Lovers of art, antiques, and botany have also made Murrells Inlet their destination. Today, a nonprofit civic organization works to preserve and protect the town’s natural treasures.
In Murrells Inlet, you can spend your time crabbing at Morse Park Landing of saltwater fishing at Veteran’s Pier. You can also charter a boat at the marina for a day of ocean fishing.
The walkway at Veteran’s Pier serves as one anchor of the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk, a boardwalk extending about a mile, with clean salt marshlands along one side and restaurants, live music, shopping, and entertainment venues along the other. On the marsh side of the boardwalk, you will encounter oyster beds, shrimp, pelicans, egrets, and other aquatic and bird life.
Nearby Huntington Beach State Park is home to Atalaya Castle, originally the winter home of philanthropist Arthur Huntington and his sculptor-wife Anna Hyatt Huntington. Anna Huntington’s work, particularly her detailed animal figures, won her international fame. The pair bequeathed to the state the Moorish-style “castle,” as well as its grounds and nearby Brookgreen Gardens. Here, visitors will enjoy the sculpture garden, and can choose from self-guided walking tours or guided excursions through the house and grounds.
