By Automobile

U.S. Highways 17 and 501, and SC Highways 9 and 544 provide direct access to the Myrtle Beach area.
Veterans Highway (SC 22) links U.S. 501 (west of Conway) to U.S. 17 (just north of Myrtle Beach).
The Carolina Bays Parkway (SC 31) is a six-lane scenic highway from S.C. 9 to S.C. 544 that also connects to SC 22 and US 501.

Interstate travelers currently use interstates 95 or 20 to arrive within close proximity to the Grand Strand. Planned Interstate 73 will link the Grand Strand to the US-Canadian border. I-73 will connect to 501 & SC 22. North Carolina’s I-73 section will link to US 74 which will also connect with the Grand Strand through SC 31.

Once here, finding your way around is easy:
U.S. Highway 17 is the east coast's main North-South corridor and it is definitely the main thoroughfare for the 60 miles known as the Grand Strand. US Highway 17 splits just north and south of the Myrtle Beach city limits into 17 Business and 17 Bypass so in Myrtle Beach, 17 Business is usually marked Kings Highway. To get to the ocean, you turn off 17 at any one of the avenues to access Ocean Boulevard. Ocean Boulevard also runs north-south parallel to the Atlantic Ocean but there are some areas where geography and saltwater inlets (swashes) keep the road from being continuous. This route is where the oceanfront resorts are located.
NOTE: North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach use the same avenue numbering system.
It is therefore important to know both the street address and the city you're looking for!

U.S. 17 Bypass, splits off US 17 at the north and south ends of Myrtle Beach. Referred to by locals as “the bypass,” it is Myrtle Beach’s western most route and runs parallel to the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Robert M. Grissom Parkway is a four-lane route that roughly parallels the Bypassand provides a convenient inner-city route from the airport to SC 31.
