Pier 14 is a restaurant, lounge, and fishing pier in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Sandwiched between a strip of hotels and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, the pier thrives on tourists and vacationers. Pier 14 is a sufficient example of a modern pleasure pier with its draw for tourism and its recreational purposes.
One of ten public piers along the Grand Strand, Pier 14 has benefitted greatly from the opening of the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade in 2010. Though most piers are best suited for casting a line, Pier 14 supporters argue that its more traditional uses are of the more social, such as sightseeing, dining, dancing. Pier 14 reinforces tourist culture, taking its place alongside the dozens of other east coast piers that thrive on vacation communities and withstand tropical storms and hurricanes alike.
