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.

We had a great time at Rucker Cottage. My 8 yr old grandson (who is a fishing fanatic) loved having the dock & so did I. We crabbed, fished & threw the cast net from the dock. Loved the saltwater pool. Needed to have one more bathroom for all of our family. The laundry room is on the outside of the house which is unusual. We bought a laundry basket to make transporting the clothes easier. We all had a blast & beautiful weather!

Our family had a wonderful time - the inlet wasnt as exciting as we thought - being at the end it becomes kind of a "catchall for all the **** brought in" but it was different and access to the beach was fantastic. NOTE- shorten up the dryer exhaust - not enough circulation unless you pull the whole dryer really far away from the wall.

We had a very nice stay at Rucker Cottage. The space was the perfect size for our family of 10, with the favorite spot being the screened porch. We liked that the public beach access was only a minute walk away and having the private pool was really nice. The only complaint we had was that the tile floor in the main living area, kitchen, and porch was filthy upon our arrival. Our grandson's feet were completely black after walking around for only 5 minutes. I called the realty company, explained the situation, and they promptly had someone out to the house to clean it for us. They were very good to work with. The rest of the house was properly cleaned. The only other issue for us was the cove didn't have water at low tide meaning we couldn't keep our boat in the water. We had to get a boat slip at the local marina. We thought it had water all the time since it had what was called a "floating dock". I would recommend this house but would make boat owners aware of this problem.
