In the somewhat less crowded North Myrtle Beach, with fewer touristy attractions than Downtown, but still plenty for visitors to do
Although there's no such thing as a peaceful slice of the Myrtle Beach pie, North Myrtle Beach at least isn't as chaotic as Downtown Myrtle Beach. Streets aren't particularly pedestrian-friendly, though, so a rental car would be convenient. Multiple bars and restaurants can be found on North Kings Highway.
Resting a good 15 miles north of Downtown, North Myrtle Beach has less nightlife (though there are some fun bars at Barefoot Landing), and a bit of a slower pace. Plenty of family-friendly attractions are located here, including an aquarium and the O.D. Pavilion & Amusement Park. The area is known for being less high-end than Downtown, and offers visitors more budget-friendly hotels.
