If you’re up for a day in the sun, Myrtle Beach is just a little more than an hour from Florence. Heading east on Palmetto Street will take you straight there. Some of our favorite spots along the beach are the boardwalk, the piers, and state parks. Eastern SC Heritage Region also provides info about heritage sites near the beach.

And just because we love shoes, we chose a special blog about water shoes for your beach outing.
