DRIVING DIRECTIONS TO MEHER SPIRITUAL CENTER
Near Cabin
Front entrance from Highway 17

Meher Spiritual Center is located on Highway 17 in between the cities of Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, just north of the intersection with Highway 22. Our entrance (ocean side of intersection) is at the same traffic light as is used for the main entrance to the Myrtle Beach Mall (inland side of intersection).
Note: GPS navigation units and internet mapping services often show the wrong location of our entrance.

FROM HIGHWAY 501
Heading South on Highway 501, a few miles before Conway (after Aynor), turn off on Hwy 22 East for Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Your're now about 30 miles from the Center. Stay on Hwy 22 about 28 miles until it ends where it joins Hwy 17. Follow the signs for Hwy 17 North towards North Myrtle Beach (left-most lane of Hwy 22). The first traffic light after merging into 17 is our entry on the right. Directly across the highway from our entrance is a large sign for the Myrtle Beach Mall. Turn right at the light onto our entry road and proceed to the Gateway building, first building on your right.

GOING NORTH ON HWY 17
As you proceed north on Hwy 17, wherever there is a turnoff for Hwy 17 Business, do not take that turnoff. Stay on regular (non-business) Hwy 17. As you pass through Myrtle Beach, you will pass the Highway 501 interchange. After about 8 more miles, Hwy 17 merges with Hwy 17 Business (after 82nd Ave. and the Pirates Voyage theater on your right). Continue going north on Hwy 17 and soon you will pass the Hwy 22 interchange when you are less than a mile from the Center entrance. The second traffic light after the interchange is our entry on the right. Directly across the highway from our entrance is a large sign for the Myrtle Beach Mall. Turn right at the light onto our entry road and proceed to the Gateway building, first building on your right.

GOING SOUTH ON HWY 17
Traveling south on Hwy 17 from North Carolina, continue on 17 through the city of North Myrtle Beach. At the south end of North Myrtle Beach, when you get to the traffic light at 48th Ave. South (Alabama Theater sign on the right) you are one and a half miles from our entrance. Continue south on Hwy 17 and you will soon see a large sign for Myrtle Beach Mall on your right and a traffic light located where the sign is. Make a left turn at that traffic light (wait behind white line for left turn signal). Proceed on our entry road to the Gateway building, first building on your right.

FROM HWY 9
Heading towards the coast on Highway 9, take the right-hand onramp for Hwy 31 South for Myrtle Beach and Georgetown. Continue a little over 7 miles on Hwy 31, then take the right-hand turnoff for Hwy 22 for Myrtle Beach and Conway. Then coming up very quickly, take the left-hand turnoff for Hwy 22 East for Myrtle Beach. Soon Hwy 22 will end at Hwy 17, so follow the signs for Hwy 17 North towards North Myrtle Beach (left-most lane of Hwy 22). The first traffic light after merging into 17 is our entry on the right. Directly across the highway from our entrance is a large sign for the Myrtle Beach Mall. Turn right at the light onto our entry road and proceed to the Gateway building, first building on your right.
