Planning a trip to Myrtle Beach around the end of June, 2011. Has anyone gone to Myrtle Beach along Rte 17? How long does it actually take to get to South Myrtle Beach from Jax and are there any places/towns to avoid?

Avoid the city. They don't like loud pipes (anything aftermarket)

Check out this link: http://www.wistv.com/global/story.asp?s=8980453

This will give you some idea of what to expect when you go there.

Do a search up top on Myrtle Beach Bike Week. There are lots of threads on this subject. It will give you an idea of how the city feels about bikers in their town.

Been to MB a bunch of times, but am taking the trip on a bike for the first time and am really looking for advice on the best way to get there from Jax, Fl. Planning to ride mostly Rte 17 and wondering if there is a better way to go. Trying to avoid the interstate as much as possible.

Following 17 maybe an easy ride and more scenic but the way to go is I95 to 378 to 501. It is highway all the way and you should no have any problems unless 501 is really busy when hit town. It is one of major highways into Myrtle Beach. I have made the ride in a car many times.
