A great standout against the blue sky, the SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina rises high, providing great views of the Myrtle Beach strip. SkyWheel is a 187-foot tall (57.0 m) observation wheel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. When it opened on May 20th, 2011, it was the second-tallest extant Ferris wheel in North America, after the 212-foot (64.6 m) Texas Star in Dallas, and the tallest wheel in the United States east of the Mississippi River. Since its opening, it has become the sixth-tallest Ferris wheel in the United States.

I declare, Steven. I have a sister who lives on the coast in Myrtle Beach about half of the year, and I bet she knows all about this. When I visited her years ago, it had not yet been built. It must be quite the attraction.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

despite it being only a few hours from my home, I have never been to Myrtle Beach. I have been on the wheel on the Texas fairgrounds, but all you can see is Dallas. I bet (on a clear day) the view over the ocean would be great.
