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.
Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
My family and I have stayed in the Garden City location for 29 years in a row. We have stayed in multiple house with multiple realtors. Our stay was one of if not the best experience to date. This was our first stay at Driftwood and the location, cleanliness, accommodations and variety of amenities were awesome! We had a few minor SNAFU's but they were handled immediately with total satisfaction. We would recommend this rental exclusively! We will certainly be back. The only complaint was the main floor bedroom with the two single beds were very uncomfortable with very thin mattresses.

Driftwood met all our expectations. The decor was very beachy but tasteful and not overdone. Two full refrigerators plus a wet bar with ice maker was so helpful. Great big flat screen TVs. Six adults and six kids ages 13-18 had plenty of sleeping and living space. Location was great - we were able to bypass most of Ocean Blvd (and golf carts!) and take back roads to Atlantic Ave and the main highway. The hot tub never did heat up, although the jets worked. It didn’t really matter to us, the pool and beach were our main interests. Very nice wide beach here. Great vacation!

We had an amazing time at the Driftwood in Garden City, SC
We arrived on Saturday around 4:30 pm. Check in went very well!
House was ready and the staff at Gardrn City Reality knew what they where doing. It was a very busy time for them with many families checking in. It took only about 10 minutes.
