The Grand Strand famously brags that it has 60 miles of beach, but few of us ever dream of walking its entire length. A brisk mile and most of us are good to go.
Have you ever wondered how far you walk when you stroll around Broadway at the Beach? It's an easy 1.3 miles.
Most folks don't notice the distance they're walking because they're so busy taking in the sites.
It's easy to be entranced by people zipping back and forth across Lake Broadway on the Soar & Explore zipline. And, periodically, the roar of the dragon at Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf course grabs everyone's attention.
Happy music and the laughter of small children enjoying kiddie rides seems to always be in the air, while the excited screams of bigger kids and adults delighting in thrill rides inspire many more to take on those challenges.
Even looking to the sky from Broadway showcases the fun and excitement of Helicopter Adventures giving guests on short flights a bird's eye view of Myrtle Beach.
While the sites are engaging, the smells are enticing. The aromas that drift out of the many different restaurants inform the senses that there are a lot of good food choices to be had. It's also easy to be charmed into snacking by the sweet scents of taffy or fudge being freshly made in shop windows.
Even sitting down for a break fills the senses. Celebrity Square is a good place to pause, listen to music coming out of the clubs, and do some people watching.
Up and walking again, there's temptation to recharge your internal engine with something sweet from It'Sugar where just about every kind of candy — from old favorites to new confections — is available.
A walk around Broadway is about more than just going the distance. It's a positively awesome way to enjoy the largest entertainment venue in South Carolina, and to understand why millions of visitors come to Broadway every year.
