Murrells Inlet is the Seafood Capital of South Carolina

Hello, travelers. We talk about Murrells Inlet, South Carolina quite a bit. But we have good reason to: it’s a great coastal lowcountry escape, it’s got Huntington Beach State Park, one of the best birding destinations on the east coast, and it’s home to great accommodations in Ellington at Wachesaw Plantation East.

One more thing: Murrells Inlet has roots as a fishing village, and is known as the seafood capital of South Carolina. In addition to the already awesome offerings at the Marshwalk, visitors can celebrate Restaurant Week South Carolina, Jan. 11-21.

If you’re staying in Murrells Inlet, Myrtle Beach, or North Myrtle Beach, make plans to go out to dinner and experience the fresh variety of seafood prepared in many different styles.

Restaurant Week South Carolina gives local, regional and national food lovers the opportunity to enjoy amazing values during dinner at a number of participating casual and high-end South Carolina restaurants. Restaurant Week’s goal is to position South Carolina as one of the top culinary destinations in the nation by increasing awareness of the many dining opportunities available in the state, as well as stimulating business and revenue for restaurants throughout South Carolina.
