Huntington State Beach Park at Murrells Inlet on the coast of South Carolina with its Atlantic beach and wetlands inhabited by sea turtles, alligators and rich birdlife. A far-reaching walkway into the marsh allows observation of the wildlife.
Murrells Inlet, South Carolina was once primarily a fishing village, but has grown substantially in modern time, along with the rest of the Grand Strand, into a tourist location. Fishing and boating on the inlet are popular.
The fishing village of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina is an outdoorsman’s dream. The popular MarshWalk comes alive after dark, with live music streaming from several waterfront establishments that offer spectacular views.

The SkyWheel started as a stand-alone iconic attraction in May 2011 at Myrtle Beach. The SkyWheel is not a carnival ride, but a modern, safe observation wheel towering almost 200 feet in the air. It has fully enclosed gondolas offering a safe and secure flight with glass windows and doors for optimal views and photography. The gondolas are heated and cooled allowing for year-round operation in any type of weather.
For me, the SkyWheel was a striking element while shooting sunsets at Myrtle Beach.
A walkway and path lead to Pier 14. Located on the north end of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, Pier 14 is a great spot for those looking to get a different view of the ocean after a walk down the Boardwalk.
