There is nothing like looking back on a wonderful trip at the beautiful pictures and moments you captured. It is a nice reminder or picks me up when you are having a bit of an off day. A nice mini photoshoot, while you are on vacation, is the perfect way to store epic memories, and if you love sharing aesthetically pleasing images on social media, we have the perfect places for you. North Myrtle and Myrtle Beach are filled with some of the best places to capture a moment whether it is with a professional photographer or just passersby. Here are a few of our favorite places to snap the most instagrammable photo around North Myrtle Beach.
The Myrtle Beach Skywheel
Home to the largest Ferris wheel on the East Coast, Myrtle Beach can be seen for miles and miles at the top of the Sky Wheel. Each gondola is enclosed and offers heating and cooling features. Go during the day and see the beach, or go at night and see the whole town lit up. No matter when you go, the picture you can capture will be amazing. Also, if you are feeling artsy, capture a picture of the sky wheel itself lit up in the evening.
Did you really go to the beach if you didn’t take the classic underneath the pier picture? Not only is it a cool background, but you can also capture the ocean in these pictures, as well as take them from many different piers. Whether you are on the Cherry Grove Pier, or inside of Huntington Beach State Park, or the pier connected to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, the views will be amazing. If you’re looking for the absolute perfect picture, get to the pier right before the sun goes down. You won’t be disappointed.
You can’t come to North Myrtle Beach and not take one beach picture, it is just unheard of. No matter where you are on the Grand Strand, the beaches are breathtaking. From the salty water to the ocean breeze, photos taken at the beach will take you back in time to feeling toasty on the sand as you watch all your worries in the world be washed away by the sound of the ocean. It is truly amazing how a simple photo can take you back to a certain feeling, smell, and time. The Myrtle Beach area is filled with beautiful beaches with jetties, artificial reefs, and much more.
Not only is it a spectacular dinner and a show, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. I mean where else can you take pictures with a pirate? From mermaids to pirates, seals, and birds, the photo ops are endless. The exterior of the building is perfect for a family portrait, and they even have photographers there so you can buy your own picture in front of the pirate ship. Take selfies with the seals, mermaids, and pirates after the show, or hang around and purchase your family photos.
The Market Commons
Snap a photo around the beautiful pond or gather around the beautiful palm and oak trees spread throughout. The Market Commons offers a small hallmark town vibe, where everything is within walking distance. You can visit the shops, grab a bite to eat or even go for a stroll in a horse-drawn carriage. If you are looking to let the kids burn off some steam, no worries, check out Savannah’s Playground that is perfect for kids of all ages. No matter where you take a picture, we are sure that it will turn out perfect.
Located right across the street from Huntington State Park and Atalaya Castle sits Brookgreen Gardens. Not only is the scenery and day at the gardens absolutely mesmerizing, but it is also picture perfect. From a night of a thousand candles to many of their events, there are plenty of opportunities for snapping the perfect picture. The gardens are frequently a hot spot amongst visitors of the area and locals. The pics you will be able to grab here are unforgettable and breathtaking. You can see wild animals like alligators, seals, or birds in the sculpture garden.
The Murrells Inlet MarshWalk
Just outside of Surfside Beach off of Kings Highway sits the Marsh Walk. You can snap a few pictures of the oyster shell boardwalk or take a picture of the goat island. This is the perfect stop if you are traveling to Pawleys Island or Charleston for the day. The marsh walk has some of the best seafood in all of Georgetown County. At night you can even see Ocean Boulevard from the marsh. It is a must-see if you are visiting anywhere in South Carolina.
No matter where you are, whether it is North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Conway, Murrells Inlet, or even Pawleys Island, you will return with the best pictures.
