AAA Editor Notes

SkyWheel Myrtle Beach, at the Boardwalk and Promenade at 1110 N. Ocean Blvd., dominates the skyline. At nearly 200 feet tall, this observation wheel offers a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Grand Strand from 42 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas, each of which seats six. Rides last 8-10 minutes and offer three rotations for multiple viewpoints. Views of the vicinity are obviously hindered after dark, but a nighttime light show created by a dazzling LED lighting system that can display over 16 million colors is offered each evening. The ride is at a very modest speed. Food is available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
$14; $9 (ages 3-11). Reservations are recommended.
Hours: Daily 11-11 (also Fri.-Sat. 11 p.m.-midnight), June-Aug.; 11-10 (also Fri.-Sat. 10-11 p.m.), Mar.-May; 11-7 (also Fri.-Sat. 7-9 p.m.), rest of year (weather permitting). Phone ahead to confirm schedule.
