Best/easiest Public access beach to go to from Broadway

I will be in Myrtle Beach from May 5th-9th. I work for Hilton and couldn't get a decent employee rate at any of their beachfront properties but I did get a couple rooms at the Hampton Inn, Broadway at the Beach. We will have 2 cars and we know that we will have to drive to get to the beach. What area of the beach is the best and easiest to drive to from Broadway? Are there some public beaches that are better to go to than others? Is there a charge for parking at any of the beach areas?

There are several public parking areas, coin-op parking meters along Ocean Blvd. Other than that not a lot of "public access" areas. How about Myrtle Beach State Park at the South end of Ocean Blvd?

You pay an entrance fee, but can leave and come back the same day without paying again. There is a lot of parking there, beach will not be as crowded, picnic tables and a pier. About 10 miles down Hwy 17 is Huntington Beach State Park, same set up, Brookgreen Gardens and Atalaya "Castle". Well worth a day trip.

Nice hotel the Hampton at Broadway. When you leave the parking lot, take 29th Ave N all the way to Ocean Blvd, turn left and go few blocks and you will start seeing public parking, they are every few blocks. Nice area of beach, you won't have any problems finding a parking spot somewhere on North Ocean Blvd. Won't be far from your accomodations.
