Huntington Beach State Park:
Murrells Inlet, SC


We almost skipped visiting Huntington Beach State Park while we were in Myrtle Beach and I am so glad we didn’t. We were in Myrtle Beach during the winter when it was too cold for the alligators that call the park their home to be out. We were led to believe that there isn’t much else to see there. We stopped off on our way back from Brookgreen Gardens and thought we’d leave after a few minutes. The park was so magnificent, we ended up staying a while.

Although the alligators were not out, there were many birds and other wildlife to be seen on the 2,500 acres. The 3 miles of ocean access at the park is stunning and not commercialized. The marshes are genuine nature at its best with a long boardwalk extending deep into it.

The Atalya, the historic home of the Huntington’s former owners of the park land and Brookgreen Gardens can be toured daily.
