When in Myrtle Beach, make a side trip to see Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, approximately Murrells Inlet away. There's much more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Ripley's Aquarium of Myrtle Beach, don't miss a visit to Barefoot Landing, take in the waterfront at Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To find reviews, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Myrtle Beach travel route builder app.

Detroit to Myrtle Beach is an approximately 3.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus, train, and car.
