Some of the most striking geographical features in the Georgetown County area are the network of inlet marshes that meander inland along the coast. On the northern tip of the county, the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk offers up the unrivaled beauty of the sights and sounds of nature.
Murrells Inlet is a quaint fishing town, well-known for its seafood and for its historic popularity with pirates, including Blackbeard, centuries ago. The MarshWalk in this quiet town is home to several local businesses and some of the best restaurants and bars in the area. It has become a haven for festivals, as it hosts several throughout the year, including the 4th of July and Christmas Boat Parades.
One of the most highly-anticipated yearly festivals, the Taste of the MarshWalk, is back on January 28 and 29, 2017 for its 4th year of celebrating great flavors from the area's finest local establishments. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, eight award-winning restaurants will serve up their chef's favorite dishes, and local artisans and crafters will have their unique products on display and for sale. As you walk along the marsh, groove to the sounds of life entertainment. There will also be plenty of kids' activities, including face painting and bounce houses, so bring the whole family along!
Small dish tasting will include some of the most delectable selections from the Murrells Inlet area. Whether you're looking for a seafood treat or something from the land, the Taste of the MarshWalk has a little bit of everything! This year's menus will include items like Black Bean and Bourbon Chili, Barbeque Ribs, Lobster Bisque, 1/2 shell Oysters, and more! Live music will be performed by local artists, including NTranze, Miracle Max & The Pet Monsters, and Time Traveler.
