It may come as no surprise that South Carolina’s first state park was opened on the sandy shores that front the Atlantic Ocean. Likewise, it’s probably no shocker that the first state park opened in Myrtle Beach… the state’s crown jewel for family vacations in the 1930s.

Myrtle Beach State Park is located at 4401 S Kings Hwy., Myrtle Beach, SC 29575. Find out more on their official website.
