Surfside Beach: "The Family Beach". Your Autism Friendly Vacation Destination!

Surfside Beach is a small seaside community nestled in the heart of South Carolina's Grand Strand area. It encompasses 2 miles of pristine beach, enjoys a temperate climate and is both an active residential community and a thriving vacation destination.

Proudly called the Family Beach, Surfside Beach strives to maintain a small-town, laid-back, child-friendly environment for its residents and guests. It is a quiet haven close to all area attractions.

The Town-owned fishing pier, water park, supermarkets, mini-golf, and restaurants are all just a short walk or golf-cart ride away.

Autism Friendly

Champion Autism Network (CAN)Surfside Beach is the first town in the United States to become an "Autism Friendly" travel destination.

Since Autism can bring with it a variety of behavioral issues, parents of children with Autism are weary of nasty looks and glares. Surfside Beach has committed to transforming itself into a judgment-free zone, both at the beach and the surrounding area with businesses, restaurants and venues being trained in the needs of the children on the Autism Spectrum. For more information, visit our Autism Friendly page or the Champion Autism Network.
