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.

The 2nd Avenue Pier has become one of Myrtle Beach’s top hang outs. Located at the southern end of the Boardwalk, one can enjoy a nice stroll on the pier.
The 2nd Avenue Pier on Myrtle Beach‘s famous Ocean Boulevard is the longest pier in the celebrated Grand Strand city. Built in 1936, the 906-foot-long pier takes visitors out into the Atlantic’s depths for unbeatable fishing and expansive ocean views.
Myrtle Beach, a city and vacation resort on South Carolina’s Atlantic coast, is the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. It’s also known for its celebrity-designed golf courses. Along its beachfront boardwalk are arcades, souvenir stands and restaurants and the SkyWheel, one of the country’s tallest Ferris wheels.
