Attracting millions of visitors each year (many of whom return again and again), the Grand Stand is blessed with an incredibly loyal base of fans who just can’t get enough of its 60-plus miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline and long list of fun, family-friendly activities. And while many visitors may wish they never had to leave the Myrtle Beach area, for most of us, the getaways unfortunately have to come to an end, forcing us to pack up and return to real life and the everyday grind.

But there is good news for those who reside far from the area and find themselves missing Myrtle Beach — with the modern technology of today, it’s easy to check in on our stretch of Carolina coastline anytime, even from the comfort of your own couch. Next time you’ve got the itch but can’t quite reach the beach, hop online and visit one of these three top sites offering webcam feeds that allow you to see what’s happening on the Grand Strand:

Myrtle Beach Webcams: This page found at MyrtleBeach.com features four webcams boasting fun Myrtle Beach views 365 days a year. Currently, all four cameras are placed at RipTydz Oceanfront Grille and Rooftop Bar, found on North Ocean Boulevard adjacent to the famous Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. One camera faces the beach and the Boardwalk; another faces Ocean Boulevard with the SkyWheel, Sling Shot and Air Strike rides seen in the distance; a third faces the RipTydz bar; and the last shows the action on the RipTydz backyard cornhole courts. Check them all out at myrtlebeach.com/webcams.

The Landing at the Boathouse Webcam: Known as the home of “the Best Backyard in Town,” this Myrtle Beach bar and restaurant near Coastal Grand Mall sits alongside the Intracoastal Waterway, so views from its webcam often feature swimmers, passing boats, fishermen, water-skiers and the like. But perhaps even better, the camera points directly at the establishment’s waterfront stage — so on concert days (and nights), viewers can also catch all the action of the live show and the rocking concert crowd. Check out this webcam at ipcamlive.com.

North Beach Plantation: With its strikingly scenic oceanfront location, of course North Beach Plantation offers some beautiful coastal views, and now you don’t have to head for the coast to catch them. Visit northbeachrentals.com to get a bird’s-eye view of the blue Atlantic Ocean waves, the soft beach sands, and all the goings-on (in real time) along the resort’s gorgeous stretch of backyard beach.

With so many Grand Strand webcams available online, it’s easy to keep your eye on the Carolina coast these days. And when you’re ready for some of the real thing, book your oceanfront getaway at North Beach Plantation in North Myrtle Beach — and come see (or discover once again) why the Grand Strand is such a popular destination for beach-lovers and web surfers alike.
