If you are already familiar with the general history of the Myrtle Beach that we know today, but want to delve deeper into the city's beginnings and specifically during the years of the second world war, this trolley tour may interest you. It shares Myrtle Beach's origin story and tells what it was like to live there during WWII with U-boat threats off the coast and the arrival of German POWs. It makes stops at Myrtle Beach's first golf course, Pine Lakes International Country Club, and the Historic Myrtle Beach Colored School Museum. Guests gather in front of the Grand 14 Theater at The Market Common to begin boarding at 9:45 AM. The trolley is enclosed and climate-controlled. If you would like more of an introduction to the city's history, you may enjoy the Myrtle Beach History, Movies and Music trolley tour. Both tours were created to compliment each other in order to give guests a more comprehensive look at Myrtle Beach's past. GUESTS MUST BE AT LEAST 3 YEARS OLD FOR THIS TOUR.

Very important and interesting historical information

The guide for our tour was a "local girl" that knows volumes of information! And, she presents it in dramatic fashion. We visited the country club and the African-American school. The school is an excellent, vibrant exhibit of the history of the segregation years in Myrtle Beach, and the mighty achievements of Black Americans.

This tour was fantastic but more so because of Katherine Hedgpath, the tour guide. She made it extremely interesting and worthwhile. Hearing the information gives you a better understanding and perspective of how things were. The two stops were interesting but I thoroughly enjoyed the stop at the new location of the Myrtle Beach Colored School and Museum. Definitely a most return spot to appreciate it all. I readily suggest this tour for anyone who is interested in history. Great job Katherine and thanks Tom for the great ride! Hope to see you on the next tour.

We really enjoyed this trolley guided tour. The lady sharing the history information was very polite and very knowledgeable. She kept it interesting and was animated in the way she relayed info to us. We made two stops where we get off the trolley & explored the stops we were at which were very interesting. I would highly recommend this for anyone to experience.
