Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is one of America’s favorite resort destinations. Shopping, dining, entertainment, golf and water sports offer something for everyone — residents and visitors alike. It’s part of the Grand Strand which is a 60-mile stretch along the Atlantic coast and parallel to the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
Myrtle Beach was named in 1938 for the wax myrtle trees which were growing here. It became a city in 1957. Government and business information, local laws and city event schedules can be found online.
Real estate choices range from upscale oceanfront homes or condos to mid-range starter homes near the beach and plenty of inland communities and rural areas. Small towns provide amenities to please families year-round, while beach life attracts resort lovers as well as snowbirds for part-time living.
