Myrtle Beach is a coastal city on the east coast of the United States in Horry County, South Carolina. Change things up with a short trip to Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet (about 32 minutes away). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ripley's Aquarium of Myrtle Beach, take in the waterfront at Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and make a trip to Barefoot Landing.

To see maps and more tourist information, you can read our Myrtle Beach trip builder tool .

Lagos, Nigeria to Myrtle Beach is an approximately 22-hour flight. The time zone changes from Western African Time to Eastern Standard Time, which is usually a -6 hour difference. Traveling from Lagos in March, expect Myrtle Beach to be cooler, temps between 20°C and 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Greenville.
