    Garden City carves out its own place in the sun

    Garden City is a small resort town that shares a section of the 60-mile arc of beaches called "The Grand Strand" with 11 other communities, including the region's big enchilada, Myrtle Beach. A Garden City vacation rental offers a chance to enjoy the same lovely sands and surf, away from the bigger town's bustle, while still close to natural areas, attractions for all the family, and some fine golfing. Garden City Pier is fine for strolling, fishing, watching the surfers, and it includes a bar for late-night partying.

    Make way for golf carts in Garden City

    Garden City's signature event is its Fourth of July parade of golf carts decorated in red, white, and blue. From that, you can be sure that golfing is a favorite pursuit here, with several fine courses in the area, including the notable Indian Wells Golf Club. A Garden City vacation rental places you well for beach activities from sunning to surfing to jet skiing. You can fish from the 668-foot pier, or book a charter among inlets near shore or out in the ocean. There's shopping in town, a biker bar or two, and a waterpark for kids.

    Piering out to sea, and other Garden City pursuits

    The pier is Garden City's biggest draw, great for fishing, strolling, and gazing at the waters—plus there's a cafe/bar at the end, with karaoke and live music in summer, adults only. Kids have their own amusements, including Wild Water & Wheels—a water park and go-kart track. Nearby Huntington Beach State Park has its own secluded beach, plus camping and tours of a Moorish-style mansion. Also nearby, Brookgreen Gardens has a botanical garden with outdoor sculptures and a zoo with local wildlife such as alligators, eagles, hawks, foxes, and deer.

    Life is just beachy on Garden City's Strand

    Garden City is a beachgoers destination in the summer, when temperatures generally hit the 80s and water parks and other outdoor amusements are going full tilt—check out the scene in July, when the southeastern heat and humidity hit their peak. A Garden City vacation rental in winter, usually with temps in the 40s, still offers sunbirds and travelers fine golfing and beach walking, although a January dip into the 30s can send you toward indoor pursuits. Sunny more days than not, the weather can turn rainy any time of year, but especially in September.

    From the sands to wetland forest, nature is on display

    Garden City Beach, as it's sometimes called, is part of the 60-mile Grand Strand that makes up a vacationers' paradise along South Carolina's northern shore. Sometimes nature shows up with great force, as when hurricanes caused huge damage in 1954 and 1989. More usually, nature can be observed more quietly. The pier offers views of schools of fish, dolphins, and jellyfish, plus the occasional shark. Nearby Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge, made up of tidal marshes and forests, hosts endangered swallow-tailed kites and other birds, plus black bears and red foxes.
