North Myrtle Beach
Home of the Shag. The nine-mile long beach community of North Myrtle Beach continues to thrive, almost 50 years after its inception. In 1968, four existing communities – Cherry Grove, Windy Hill, Ocean Drive, and Crescent Beach – were combined to form the city. Let’s see what this fun beach town has in store!
A town where quality time comes easy. Incorporated in 1964, Surfside Beach has long been known throughout the Grand Strand as a “family beach.” For a game of tennis, bocce, shuffleboard and much more, you don’t have to look further than the town’s seven public parks. Surfside’s pristine beaches are cleaned daily and supervised by lifeguards and police, and there are several beach access points that offer showers, restrooms and accessible ramps for persons with disabilities. In 2016, the Surfside Beach town council signed a proclamation to make Surfside Beach the first autism-friendly travel destination, thus further establishing their reputation as a beach for families.
Garden City Beach
Fun for the Whole Family. Located directly south of Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach is a small beach community revered for its lighthearted, family-friendly atmosphere. The inlet meets the ocean here, so the area is a hot spot for watersports, fishing, and crabbing. The heart of Garden City Beach is the Pier, a paradise for those looking to fish during the day and dance to live music at night. Plus, surfing enthusiasts are sure to catch the perfect wave at this fun beach locale.
A Picturesque Fishing Town. On the north end of the Grand Strand, the fishing community of Little River is the oldest of the 14 communities. It’s one of the few places left where life moves slowly, offering a relaxing, laid-back destination. Deep-sea fishing charters leave at sunrise, taking anglers to some of the best fishing spots on the coast. Shorter fishing and party boat cruises are also available, and if you’re feeling lucky, take an evening trip on a casino boat. Enjoy fresh seafood that comes off fishing boats throughout the day and is served up at many quality restaurants.
Peaceful and Beautiful. Horry County, South Carolina is home to the relatively-new Carolina Forest area, located north of U.S. 501 between Myrtle Beach and Conway along the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway. Primarily a residential area, this master-planned community offers some great dining and shopping opportunities!
The Market Common
Shop • Eat • Play • Live. Myrtle Beach’s Uptown Downtown. From Pottery Barn to White House Black Market and all the unique boutiques in between, there’s fun for everyone with cool restaurants, bowling, movies, a day spa and exciting family events all year round! We look forward to seeing you at The Market Common!
Step Back In Time. One of the oldest towns in South Carolina, Conway has all the charm and grace of a historic Southern community. Oak tree-lined streets run through the picturesque historic district, inviting visitors to stay and learn more. The Conway Riverwalk, set along the beautiful Waccamaw River, offers visitors a tour of the downtown area that is beautiful in all four seasons.
Enjoy Nature, Seafood and Relaxation. The fishing village of Murrells Inlet was once the lair of the infamous pirate Blackbeard. Today, it’s an outdoorsman’s dream. No matter your boating preference, there is an experience for every taste. And when visiting what is known as the “seafood capital of South Carolina,” you know a delicious meal awaits after a fun-filled day.
A Historic Vacation Spot. Found at the southernmost end of the Grand Strand, Pawleys Island is one of the most historic resort communities on the east coast. It was once the summer home to wealthy pre-Civil War rice planters, and there are still twelve residences, which date from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s, intact in the historic district. Pawleys Island is proudly referred to as “arrogantly shabby,” as residents revel in its simple charms and natural beauty. Those charms rub off on visitors who enjoy the community’s unique shops, restaurants, and slower pace.
