This Hamlet just north of Myrtle Beach proper is a bit truer to the flavor of the town as it was before it became a tourist mecca. Centered on Mineola Ave as it makes a beeline for the waterfront, this little town consists of little more than a few streets and the waterfront along the eponymous inlet. This section of the city features a few nice restaurants and shops, and its cuisine is centered on its reputation as a hub of the crab harvesting season which takes place in late spring and for which the town hosts it world famous Blue Crab Festival each May.

Rescue Falls has plenty of tropical plants, a flowing river, a waterfall and a rescue helicopter waiting for you at the end. The Rescue Falls course is handicap accessible. Open every day of the week from 9 am onwards.
