Once the lair of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, Murrells Inlet is now widely known as the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina" and is an ideal place for those who love to explore the outdoors. A half-mile-long Marsh Walk offers spectacular views and a chance to watch fishing boats come in with the day's catch, be it fresh fish, clams, oysters, or crabs pulled from the surrounding waters.
Thrill seekers relish opportunities to parasail, ride a banana boat or drive a jet ski, while pirate-themed boat tours bring Murrells Inlet's history of pirates and adventurers to life. This fishing village has a boating experience for every taste, from kayaking at sunrise to a day-long chartered deep-sea fishing excursion to the Gulf Stream. After dark, things get lively along the Marsh Walk, with live music streaming from several fun-filled establishments.
Known worldwide for its beauty, Brookgreen Gardens showcases its extensive American sculpture collection with the best nature has to offer. Founded by Archer and Anna Huntington in 1931, Brookgreen Gardens was their gift to the community they loved. Today it is a National Historic Landmark with one of the most significant collections of figurative sculpture, by American artists in an outdoor setting, in the world. Visitors will always find something in bloom, no matter what the season, and the zoo offers an up-close look at local wildlife. For the adventurer, try a Carolina Safari tour through local attractions, or Blue Wave Adventures Dolphin Watch Tour, for a kayak or charter exploration for marine life.
Directly across the highway lies Huntington Beach State Park, originally a part of the Huntington's estate and now a must-see for the serious bird watcher. This 2,500-acre park also offers ocean-side camping, fishing and nature programs along the three miles of beach and hundreds of acres of salt marsh. This was also the summer residence of the Huntington's and their castle-like home, Atalaya, is open for exploration daily.
