SkyWheel

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Visitors can't miss the 187-foot coastal centerpiece at Myrtle Beach's Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade. Opened in 2011, it's the 2nd-tallest extant Ferris wheel in the US with 42 glass-enclosed, temperature-controlled gondolas. SkyWheel operates year-round and serves as an icon for a city famous for attracting bikers, spring breakers and golfers.
