Why Myrtle Beach, SC

The Grand Strand is a 60-mile stretch of subtropical beaches and world-renowned golf courses along South Carolina’s Atlantic coastline, and at its very heart beats Myrtle Beach.  Simultaneously famous for its many fairways and its Spring Break festivities, Myrtle Beach hosts 14 million visitors annually.


The city’s population barely tops 35,000, but with 215 days of sun per year and a median temperature over 80 degrees, this community bustles with an average daily population exceeding 105,000!

As the nation’s premiere location for beachside entertainment, Myrtle Beach offers everything from NASCAR races to PGA tours; water parks to wine-tastings; riverboat gambling to rock concerts; boardwalks to ballparks; music festivals to Medieval festivals.

Myrtle Beach has something for everyone, every wonderfully balmy day of the year. In fact, the only thing you won’t find in Myrtle Beach is snow.

Known as the “Golf Capital of the World,” Myrtle Beach is a mecca for links-lovers.  The city hosts four of Golfdigest.com’s top 100 country clubs, which explains why the Golf Academy of America is located here.

This coastal town also offers a slew of ballparks, water parks, and amusement parks, but both residents and vacationers agree that Myrtle Beach’s best features are its natural ones, which include the many beaches and campgrounds along the Grand Strand, each with a personality of its own.

While Myrtle Beach is a popular destination for both party-bound youth and leisure-bound retirees alike, its sand dunes and ocean views are most commonly enjoyed by families. 

Whether you’re stopping in or moving in, Myrtle Beach promises to let you live every day like it’s a holiday.
