The Garden City Pier – located in the community of Garden City Beach – is 668 feet long and stays open from March through December, sometimes 24 hours a day. It regularly hosts live bands during the summer and draws many fishermen.

The pier has a tackle shop as well as an arcade and a small cafe. It is an old-fashioned, laid back place. At the end is a covered shelter where you can have a drink and listen to music on weekends. There is no fee to walk out on the pier, but you do have to buy a ticket to fish.

Garden City Beach is an unincorporated place located partially in Horry County and partially in Georgetown County. Since it’s only eight miles south of Myrtle Beach, it’s a popular day trip for many vacationing families.

Reflections on the Garden City Pier

The third photo was shot by Brian Abeling of Iowa, who tells us, “We took our family on our first ever vacation to South Carolina. We stayed near the Garden City Pier and walked the beach every morning for a week and never tired of the sunrises like these…”

The fourth photo above was taken by Jeb Brigman of Conway in January 2008. Jeb writes, “It was a wonderful morning on the beach with the cool breeze and the playful gulls. Most of the day was covered with clouds but they broke for just a few seconds and I was able to get this shot. The pier itself is quite impressive. It has been voted best fishing pier in 2004, 2006, and 2007. With a rain shelter at the end and no charge to enjoy the pier it’s always a delight to head out there.”

This pier is the cornerstone of my childhood. I spent 15 summers living in S.C. every year from the first 2 weeks in June. I learned so much about the ocean and how this beach was so nice. I loved this city so much I brought both of my husbands there. My dad retired to Murrells Inlet and he loved it. Kudos to the pictures.

I was wondering who I could contact in regards to advertising a picture on the pier?

Garden City is my absolute favorite place to go when I’m in South Carolina. Its beautiful and not wild but a great place to relax and listen to live music and have a drink. Love the pier!
