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 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.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in Murrells Inlet, SC. The rental property could not have been more perfect. The house is beautiful, clean, and very updated. The staff at Garden City Realty is friendly and very knowledgeable of the properties they manage. We have worked with them in the past and will do so in the future.

This home is beautifully decorated and stocked with just about everything you could possibly need. House needs an ice-cream scoop, muffin pan, liquid and teaspoon measures added to be perfect. The grill is very nice. Having a bathroom for each bedroom was great. The view is perfect - and the beach in front of our rental was not crowded, we had it to ourselves almost exclusively. A few things to know: The bunk room upstairs and the twin bedroom downstairs stay warm, even at night. There are many beach regulations, and you can not put up a canopy on the beach, and may only use single umbrellas which are, of course, difficult. We enjoyed our family time there.
Thank you for taking the time to send in a review on your recent stay at Driftwood. It's reviews like yours that make us better. I am please to inform you that an ice-cream scoop, muffin pan, liquid and teaspoon measures have been added to the kitchen selection. We look forward to having you back in the future.

Fantastic overall. The hot tub was not the easiest to operate or to get it to temperature. Great location!!
