What’s in Close Proximity to Paradise Resort?
Why would anyone want to leave Paradise? There’s no reason to if it’s the Paradise Resort in Myrtle Beach. But in addition to the outstanding accommodations and amenities at the Paradise, there’s plenty to see, do and taste in the neighborhood.
With Kings Highway only two blocks inland, Paradise Resort guests have plenty of dining, shopping and entertainment options within walking distance of their hotel. Here's a list of some of the top spots in the area:
Attractions: The Paradise is about an equal distance between two entirely different sides of Myrtle Beach. A short stroll to the north will take guests to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, a 1.2-mile walkway that includes such top attractions as the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel and Second Avenue Pier. A short hike south will take visitors to Myrtle Beach State Park, a more natural slice of the SC coast complete with hiking trails through maritime forests and secluded beaches.
Dining: One of the most popular restaurants in Myrtle Beach moved in the offseason. The good news is that Angelo’s Steaks and Pasta is now even closer to Paradise Resort, just two blocks away on Kings Highway. Italian food is the main draw but Angelo’s also boasts “The Greatest Steaks in the Universe,” and it’s hard to argue. Other hot spots in the neighborhood include Damon’s Oceanfront, E Noodle, K & W Cafeteria and Manny’s New York Deli.
Shopping: The neighborhood includes all the usual beachwear stores, a Food Lion grocery stores and a Dollar General for basic needs, but there also are some unique boutiques worth checking out. Coast to Coast Antiques is a welcome sight among a sea of neon, offering items that have stood the test of time and Quick Cash Pawn Shop has some bargains. A short drive to Market Common is the best move for shoppers with expensive tastes.
Nightlife: If you're a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, the neighborhood offers a couple of great places to honky-tonk and dance the night away. Daisy Dukes is a new club dedicated to two-stepping and line dancing, and Big Daddy's Roadhouse across the street is a bar straight out of "Urban Cowboy." The Barrel, located to the south, is a nice locals' hole-in-the-wall watering hole where you can escape the tourist traps. And don't forget the oceanfront hotel bars for a cold drink and great view of the beach.
