Myrtle Beach has a long history. The area's first inhabitants were the Waccamaw and Winyah Indians, who named the region Chicora, meaning "the land." Kings Highway - a major thoroughfare through the Myrtle Beach area - began as an Indian trail long before Europeans settled along the Grand Strand. Later, this trail became the route from the northern states to Charleston and Savannah.

One of my favorite places is to walk along the 1.2 mile oceanfront boardwalk which opened in 2010.
There are restaurants, shops, arcades along the boardwalk. My all time favorite thing to do is to grab my beach chair and sit on the beach and watch the waves and people walking by.
