Traveling by road

Myrtle Beach MapFLYING or DRIVING... getting to North Myrtle Beach is easier, safer and quicker than ever.

If you are traveling by car, the major routes into North Myrtle Beach are Highways 9, 22, and 501 from the west and Highway 17 from the north and south. Highways 9 and 501 are accessible from Interstate 95.

US Highway 17 (King's Highway) extends nearly 1200 miles from Winchester, Virginia to Punta Gorda, Florida. It parallels the Atlantic Ocean locally north to south from Little River to Georgetown.

US Highway 501 intersects Highway 17 Bypass as it enters Myrtle Beach by way of Conway and has long been the primary entry to the beach.

SC Highway 9 (Sea-Mountain Highway) runs from the mountains of the NC/SC border around Asheville to the ocean in Cherry Grove and is a bit less traveled than Hwy 501.

SC Highway 22 (Veterans Highway) is a newer Interstate-style scenic route that can be taken from Highway 501 west of Conway near Aynor all the way to Highway 17. It terminates just below the Windy Hill section of North Myrtle Beach, bypassing Conway and the bulk of Myrtle Beach traffic altogether.

SC Highway 31 (Carolina Bays Parkway) is another newer Interstate-style scenic route. The primary portion stretches from Highway 9 just west of North Myrtle Beach to Highway 544 which, in turn, leads to Highway 17 in Surfside Beach. In addition to the connections to Highways 544, 501 and 9, there are multiple convenient exits to North Myrtle Beach - via Highway 22, via the new North Myrtle Beach connector to Main Street, and via Highway 9.

Please allow yourself ample time, drive safely, and have a pleasant journey.
