It’s time to visit the Golden Mile in Myrtle Beach, SC. This is the section of the beach inside city limits that is a little over a mile long stretch where there are no hotels, but simply all oceanfront homes that sit along this stretch of beach.
A few weeks back, we had one of our first days of fantastic spring weather on a Saturday and so I decided to load the family up in the car and take them down to the beach to enjoy some sunshine. Here’s a quick video showing off the Golden Mile:
As I mentioned, this segment of the beach has no hotels in it. The Golden Mile is just million dollar plus homes, so when you head to the beach here, you can find public beach access points every 2-3 homes where you can park.
Parking is fairly affordable, and the City of Myrtle Beach has now switched over to using the Parkmobile App to make it even easier. We were there for just under two hours and the total cost was $4.10.
The Golden Mile is definitely our favorite places to go and visit on the beach because you are able to spread out and have your own space on the beach. What’s nice is that it is only about a 12 minute drive from our home in The Farm. So it is a quick and convenient trip from home.
Because there are not as many people on the beach here, if you wanted to bring along some frisbees or a football to toss with friends, you have plenty of space to run and not worry about accidentally hitting someone else. On this trip, we took along our kites to fly.
Here’s a few images from our recent trip:
So, if you are looking for a good section of the beach to visit where there won’t be quite as many people there as the higher tourist areas, I would highly recommend checking out The Golden Mile in Myrtle Beach!
