Wife and i are staying at Huntington Beach State Park Sc. First time there and checking in this afternoon. Any recommendations on things to do in the area and up around Murrells Inlet. Wife wants to hit the Marsh Walk area in Murrells Inlet but other than that we are just hanging out for 4 days. Not interested in Myrtle Beach area been there done that. Restaurant recommendations in the area would be great also.

They have a lot of things to do at the Nature Lodge. They have programs in the lodge plus some walks on the Beach. Next to the campground is Atalya which was the home of the Huntingtons. It is very interesting and you can walk there. In Murrel's Inlet, visit Drunken Jacks. It's a very nice restaurant that serves good food and a view of the bay.

Plenty to do in the area and right next to Myrtle Beach. Be sure and have breakfast at the Applewood House of Pancakes!

Plenty of great seafood restaurants in Murrels, though being the off season may be just a few open. Do go see Brookgreen Gardens. Good way to spend the afternoon. HBSP has a nice marsh boardwalk and usually a lot of sea birds to see. Also, a nice long walk in the woods, or down the old driveway between Antalya (pronounced At A Lie A) and 17. Back across the causeway. You may catch sight of a few alligators. You could take a drive down to Beaufort a nice old southern town.

While in the area, drive up and check out MB State Park. It has a nice fishing pier, and since you will already have a state park pass, won’t cost a thing to enter the park to check it out. It too has some nice walking trails.

Or you could just chill out on the beach...

Brookgreen Gardens is primary reason to visit. It was constructed by the Huntingtons as a sculpture/art garden for the wife,

There is also a historical section recently added to interpret the slave life of the five rice plantations acquired by the Huntingtons to create Brookgreen. There was a very interesting boat trip to see how the rice plantations operated. Slave housing has also been replicated.

Entry ticket is for multiple days so you can do the art section one day and historical areas the next. be careful around the realistic animal sculptures. My wife walked up to investigate a "carved" alligator and then realized it was a real one, just in time!!

I live 30 miles N of MB. It is not for me either.

Bit of a drive but a day trip to historic Charleston SC?

Don't worry about restaurants in Murrells Inlet, we don't really have an off season.

Brookgreen has a number of different programs, check Groupon, they're running one of their specials. Right in the park is Atalaya, The Huntington's summer home. There are frequent guided tours.

The park rangers have many different programs year round. If you go south to Litchfield, swing by Kudzu bakery, you will be glad you did.


Looking forward to new adventures and new friends.

Check out Groupon for a discount to Brookgreen. Saved us a significant amount on admission. This was a couple years back.

Not far south on 17 is Georgetown. Worth an afternoon.
