May our social media feeds prosper, as our phones’ storage capacity fills by leaps and bounds. When you visit Myrtle Beach, you’re in no shortage of spots you’ll want to stop — and snap a shot. Where are the best ones?
We’ve calculated areas that seem most prone to the aim-and-shoot pause on the Grand Strand.
This is in no way an exhaustive list, but it’s a start. Whether it’s a panoramic view or a selfie, you can’t lose with these sites. As always
Tips for Taking Selfies
1. Know your good side. We’re not suggesting you have a bad one! Try selfies facing slightly left, slightly right, then straight on. Learn which you like best — and snap away.
2. Tilt something. Your phone or your head will work, or both! It’ll give you a whimsical shot with cool composition.
3. Lighting is your universe. Natural lighting is … whatever is bigger than the universe. A sunny Myrtle Beach day is even bigger than that.
5 Spots for Stellar Photos on the Grand Strand
1. Vereen Memorial Gardens
Venture to Little River for a wonderland of photo ops. you have a boardwalk, natural wetlands, trees, and more. No matter which direction your camera faces, there’s beauty all around. With 100 acres of Intracoastal Waterway and trails, make sure your thumb is ready for action.
2. Huntington Beach State Park
It’s another spot in Murrells Inlet with breathtaking beaches and dunes. Time a walk onto the Marshwalk at sunset for amazing images. For photos that highlight composition, you can get lost in Atalaya, the castle on-site.
3. Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
Show Jersey and other spots with boardwalks who’s got the coolest one in the land. On a sunny day, near SkyWheel (or on it!), at night … you can’t go wrong on the Boardwalk. The colors, the lines, the people, and your smile are going to shine here.
4. Broadway at the Beach
It’s another location with abundant backgrounds, especially of the whole family. In Myrtle Waves Waterpark or Backstage Mirror Maze, there are possibilities. A shot of your Dangerous Water Towers drink at Dave & Busters or Blackened Fish Tacos at American Tap House? They’d kill it on Insta.
5. Brookgreen Gardens
This is another Murrells Inlet place that’ll be a test of the memory space on your phone! Ponder near the pond. Contemplate among the sculptures. You’ll find perspective amid the natural and man-crafted beauty here. Make your way to the back of the gardens, near the marsh, for two grand fountains and even more possibilities.
