The Grand Strand is famous for its beautiful inlets and marshes. However, one of the best places to take in all the breathtaking sites and enjoy all the unique sounds, is Murrells Inlet MarshWalk.
“The Marshwalk” also known as the “Seafood Capital” is located in the historical part of Murrells Inlet. It’s a unique place to relax in the waterfront atmosphere. You can also take a stroll on the beautiful wooden boardwalk and feel the cool breeze from the ocean. It is here that you would enjoy the best seafood dinner in the Seafood Capital of South Carolina.
The Marshwalk including the Veterans Pier is 1/2 mile long and is a haven for locals and visitors to enjoy crabbing and fishing on the pier.
People call this 20,000 square foot island off the Marsh Walk, Goat Island, not to be confused with the Goat Island in Charleston. The island sits just beyond Drunken Jacks, and goats can be seen looking out towards the water. Wait – goats?
For more than 25 years, the owners of Drunken Jacks have been keeping goats on this islet during the warmer months. They are cared for by “Bubba Love”, Bubba in Southern, means brother.
Peacocks were added to the island in recent years. In the wintertime they take the goats to a warmer climate.
Murrells Inlet has a very unique atmosphere filled with waterfront views that are calming yet invigorating and a place I know you would love!

Located between Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island is a place where art, nature and history merge seamlessly together in an outdoor accredited museum with majestic oaks and world-renowned sculpture as well as a native wildlife zoo. For more than 85 years, people from all over the world have come to marvel at its beauty.
Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington created this non-profit outdoor museum in 1931.
From beautiful gardens filled with sculpture, it is also accompanied by the only accredited zoo on the coast of the Carolinas. Boat rides, the butterfly house, and an Enchanted Storybook Forest, there is always something new and exciting at Brookgreen Gardens for you and your family.
