The Murrells Inlet MarshWalk: One Scenic Destination, 8 Great Restaurants

Guests at The Oceanfront Litchfield Inn have a long list of nearby activities to pursue when they’re enjoying a getaway on our serene stretch of the southern Grand Strand — especially with the picturesque Atlantic Ocean just steps away from the seaside resort. And one of the South Strand’s most popular attractions, the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, is located just up the road a quick drive away. (Further, with indoor dining opportunities available at all the MarshWalk restaurants, it’s also a great activity option on chilly or rainy days.)

What is the MarshWalk?

Located at 4025 Highway 17 Business in the historic fishing village of Murrells Inlet (roughly 8 miles north of The Oceanfront Litchfield Inn), the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk features a half-mile wooden boardwalk set alongside and over a natural saltwater estuary. Beyond its great views and warm salt-air breezes, the attraction offers an impressive collection of local waterfront eateries, most specializing in fresh-caught seafood and savory Lowcountry cuisine. Free live-music performances are also presented nightly year-round, along with regularly staged community events, adding to the destination’s inherent appeal and fun vibe.
