What Bike Week Events Are There?

Various vendors host Bike Week events throughout the week. Popular biker friendly spots include Jamin’ Leather, Myrtle Beach Harley Davidson, The Boathouse, Big Tuna, and Beaver Bar - to name a few. Many of the Bike Week events take place on the “south end” of the strand in Murrells Inlet and Garden City and typically offer fantastic live entertainment, food and drink specials, and plenty of games and contests.

Swamp Fox Entertainment Complex will be hosting a “Biker Bash” party for each rally - details soon to come.

And, of course, there are plenty of opportunities to hit the open road and explore the Grand Strand. There are several scheduled tours which include a wine tour, a “scenic” tour, a Charleston tour, and “north end” and “south end” tours. Many guests also enjoy exploring the area on their own schedule.
