Driftwood at the Boardwalk...The Gateway to the New Myrtle Beach Boardwalk!
The Driftwood is located just steps away from Myrtle Beach's exciting new 1.2 mile-long Boardwalk and Promenade, which traverses through the sand from the 14th Avenue Pier to 2nd Avenue Pier. The boardwalk provides oceanfront views of the pristine beachline, numerous shops and restaurants along its path, and is divided into three different sections:
- The northernmost portion winds down from the 14th Avenue North Pier to Plyler Park.
- The mid-section is located from Plyler Park to the former Pavilion Amusement Park site at 8th Avenue North and encompasses more of a carnival-like atmosphere with oceanfront dining and businesses.
- The southernmost end of the boardwalk leading up to the 2nd Avenue pier has a meandering oceanfront park.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is home to festivals and events all summer long including Ocean Boulevard's Hot Summer Nights at Plyler Park located in the heart of the downtown area. Highlights of Hot Summer Nights include:
◦Live Concerts on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
◦A "Kids Carnival" on Monday nights featuring inflatables, bounce houses, face painters, jugglers, balloon artists, stilt walkers and more!
◦Wednesday night features an amazing fireworks display off the 2nd Avenue Pier.
◦Sunday nights feature juggling, acrobatics, a fire show, stilt walkers, human statues and more!
◦Thursday features a strolling bagpiper on the Boardwalk and on Friday, a strolling Dixieland band.
