The View is Fabulous at the Top

On the Boardwalk, next to Landshark Bar & Grill in Myrtle Beach, is where you’ll find the not-to-be-missed SkyWheel. It’s here that you’ll find the best view of the coastline from your seat at the top. Gondolas holding anywhere from 2-6 people in your party will take you up, up, and around three times total.

North Myrtle Beach rentalsIf you’re in the area staying in our North Myrtle Beach rentals you be just a short distance from the Boardwalk and all the excitement of the area. Definitely take the time to visit the area and enjoy all that it has to offer. While we know you’re just going to love our North Myrtle Beach rentals, there’s also so much more here that you’ll want to experience.

Each night around dusk, the SkyWheel begins its light show. With over 1 million LED lights, the display can be seen up and down the boardwalk. You’ll want a camera for this!

North Myrtle Beach rentalsAt nearly 200 feet above sea level, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel offers an unparalleled view of the coastline as far as the eye can see. But for some people that 200 feet might seem a bit intimidating. We often get questions about the safety of the SkyWheel — or even if it’s scary! The gondolas are fully enclosed and climate controlled. Regular safety inspections are conducted so you never have to worry. Taking a flight is always smooth and comfortable! There is no swaying like on a Ferris wheel.

If you’d like to speak with us about accommodations, we can be reached at (800) 367-6515 or through our website. If you’d like to order tickets in advance for the SkyWheel you can get them from their website at
