About 13 miles south of Myrtle Beach is Murrells Inlet, a community that was once primarily a fishing village and has since developed into a tourist and retirement location. Probably best known for its MarshWalk, a half-mile-long boardwalk overlooking a salt marsh, it’s a nature lover’s paradise. Just a few steps down and across Highway 17 sits one of the best gift shops in South Carolina that is so massive, you will want to have plenty of time to explore everything inside. It’s just one of many fun things to do in Murrells Inlet.
