COASTLINE IN THE CITY OF SUN
When there’s a 60-mile coastline steps from your front door, it’s easy to look on the bright side of life. Known as the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach’s generous beachfront is a destination that has the power to quickly turn visitors into locals. Along with an ascendant culinary scene, ample access to the arts and culture, and golf courses as far as the eye can see, Myrtle Beach is a network of communities that you can’t help but want to become a part of. The Chamber of Commerce estimates that 14 million visitors travel to Myrtle Beach annually; plenty stay forever.
WHEN LIFE FEELS LIKE A PERMANENT VACATION
Celebrity-designed golf courses wind their way through Myrtle Beach, often referred to as golf’s all-you-can-eat buffet due to the high concentration of courses stretching 90 miles along the Grand Strand, from Pawleys Island, S.C. to the southern edges of North Carolina. It’s not all sandy beaches and “holes in one” though. Myrtle’s Brookgreen Gardens is home to some of the most notable works in American sculpture, and Myrtle Beach lays claim to the South Carolina Hall of Fame, housed in the convention center.
AFFORDABILITY, PLEASANT CLIMATE LEAD TO EXPANDING POPULATION, BUSINESS GROWTH
Myrtle Beach International Airport serves as the world’s gateway to the Grand Strand, and its central location enables travelers to get where they are going hassle-free. Grand Strand Medical Center is a full-service emergency care hospital specializing in cardiology and women’s health, a must for the expanding population. Myrtle Beach continues to rank as South Carolina’s fastest-growing area and one of the nation’s fastest, with a population increase of 3.9 percent in 2017.
ON THE ROPES AND IN THE WATER
Stand-up paddle boarding, river tours, zip lines and ropes courses are just a few of the many outdoor adventures people can enjoy here. Myrtle Beach State Park is 312 acres of gorgeous wax myrtles, live oaks, hollies, and magnolias, and it’s one of the few remaining maritime forests on the East Coast. VisitSouthCarolina.com suggests camping at one of the area’s full-service campgrounds, many of which are beachfront and outfitted to accommodate RVs and tent campers.
