Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant.
Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.
Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.
If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.
Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.
Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.
Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone's to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports... and of course, nothing but relaxation.

My family and I had a wonderful weeks stay at this vacation home, beautiful home, walkingo distance to the beach. If I had one complaint it would be that the floor of the home was dirty when we arrived, very sandy, had to sweep and mop, when we got settled in, other than that it was a great place to stay at garden city!

We loved Rucker Cottage! Quiet little corner of the street. Clean upon arrival and had no real issues during our stay. Pool night light was out but fixed within a couple of hours after we called the next day. It was perfect for our group of 12. Comfortable beds and plenty of space when everyone was moving about the house at one time. Took about 30 seconds to walk to the beach access. The inlet view from the big screen porch was beautiful every morning/evening and a favorite hang out for everyone. Pool was a big plus with the teenagers this year. Separate outside entrance to the downstairs bedrooms was really nice. I would recommend adding a baby gate for the staircase in case renters have little ones. The dishwasher and refrigerator could use an update and the pots and pans are quite worn, BUT clean and usable for what we needed. We will definitely consider this property in the future! After years of rentals with GC, this has been our favorite!

We had a great time, this could be the last vacation where the whole family can get together due to kids getting older and pursuing careers. We have been coming to Garden City Beach for 16 years now. Can't wait to move here one day.
