Small town feel
It’s easy to get lost in the neon lights and tourism of Myrtle Beach when you first visit. But here’s a secret that’s really only known to locals: it still preserves that small-town feel. Besides being able to travel to most destinations along the Grand Strand within 30 minutes, many neighborhoods have preserved a great sense of community. You will still find that your favorite cashier knows your name at the grocery store, that your neighbors want to socialize and you have lots of senior activities and church communities in which you can participate. Despite its reputation 17 million visitors per year, Myrtle Beach has a large population of people whom have lived in the area for multiple generations.
