It takes some ambition to want to pack a day on a holiday with lots of good stuff. But when that good stuff is in one place, it becomes much easier. Welcome to the Marshwalk.
The Marshwalk is a wooden boardwalk on a natural saltwater estuary.
It’s loaded with waterfront dining, live music, and kindred spirits. Also, craft vendors and goats. (The goats are on their own island!)
Here are some ideas for spending the day in this cool spot.
It’s the ultimate variant for the beach vacation. You’re on the Intracoastal Waterway, and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the beach.
A morsel of deliciousness from any of the eateries would be something to savor. Lowcountry is king, as well as seafood, steaks, and more.
Birds here have a different kind of lifestyle. See blue and white herons, pelicans, and more amid the pluff mud and Palmetto trees.
Don’t fear you’ll get bored. With fishing, kayaking, shopping, sightseeing, watersports, and events, you have options.
You’ve arrived at your dream destination at last. Here’s what to do when you’re looking for fun on the Marshwalk.
Relinquish meal-prepping duty for a night and indulge.
STOP HERE FIRST: CREEK RATZ
For fanciness, this one’s on the rustic, nautical side. For delicious dinners, the Chicken Wings and Fresh Local Shrimp are divine.
THEN HERE: MOJO’S MARINA BAR & GRILL
You’ll make a strong case for a new favorite hangout with fresh-made mojitos and southern fare. Grab some Street Corn and a Cuban Sandwich, too.
A trip to the beer garden at The Claw House. Their beer selection is stellar and so is their entertainment calendar.
What a tactic: Lure people in with great music to get them to try your awesome food. We’re down for that.
STOP HERE FIRST: 75 DAYS OF SUMMER
It doesn’t take a detective to find the fun in this event. Through Sept. 30, enjoy drink specials at all eight Marshwalk restaurants. Bottoms up.
THEN HERE: HAPPY HOUR, ANYWHERE
It’s not a reach to say that every hour is happy hour on the Marshwalk. Check out offerings from all eight eateries for an appetizer and drink specials.
Come for the live music. Even if you’ve dined elsewhere, come to have a drink and enjoy some of the best local and regional talent out there.
There’s no grand presentation — only stories that keep circulating. Tales of Blackbeard and other pirates stashing booty in this fishing village. Of the hushpuppy becoming a culinary art.
You’ll hear the Marshwalk referred to as a drinking village with a fishing problem. The more time you spend here, you’ll see that it isn’t a problem!
The post office named this magical place Murrells Inlet in 1913. But history precedes that. Much of it remains a mystery, but that adds to the allure.
When you play in the area, you want to stay in the area. No matter how long you stay, you’ll love every minute spent at the Oceanfront Litchfield Inn. A friendly staff, easy beach access, and laid-back ambiance will assure you of that.
