Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach offers something for everyone!!! Great Restaurants, entertainment, golf, shopping, sandy beaches for miles.
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.

To read about the early history to present click here.

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.

Looking for a quieter place at the beach?

If you are looking for a quieter pace at the beach then check out Longs, SC.  Longs is a small unincorporated community in Horry County, South Carolina, United States. It lies about 14 miles northwest of North Myrtle Beach, located at the intersection of S.C. 9 and S.C. 905. The town itself consists of a post office, a gas station, and a few small businesses, however, the area is fast growing into a suburb of the Grand Strand.



Some of my favorite places to eat in that area are Bistro 90 and Jay's Asian Fusion Restaurant-2126 Highway 9 E, Ste D5, Longs, SC 29568 (Cross Streets: Between Surfrider Blvd and Cloverleaf Dr/Charter Dr)

If golf is what you are looking for there are a number of good courses nearby (so I am told ) I myself do not play!!

Aberdeen Golf
Black Bear Golf Club

North Myrtle Beach - South Carolina - Today's highlight



North Myrtle Beach lies along a 9 mile stretch of beautiful beach.  Noted for being the 

"Home of the Shag" . What is the shag you ask? Officially born in the 1950s, Shag dancing is similar to Swing dancing and consists of a six-count foot pattern. Shag has gained such a following that it is now the Official State Dance of South Carolina. The roots of shag can be found in the cross-pollination of black music and club dancers in Myrtle Beach with the natural openness of a fun-loving and carefree group of '40s white teenagers. The racially myopic mainstream radio stations of the '40s South did not play black music. The kids had flock to the beaches to hear it on jukeboxes. Click here to view a youtube of the dance.

One of the favorites in North Myrtle Beach is Fat Harolds on the beach.




Besides dancing, there are many great restaurants, golf courses in the area.  Great Homes too!!

About the Myrtle Beach area

Why do I live/love Myrtle Beach?  

The Beach #1!!! White sandy beaches spanning 60 miles from Little River to Pawleys Island.  Myrtle Beach has something for everyone from 1 to 100 !!! Amusements, shopping, shows, boating, and of course golf!  There are over 102 courses along the Grand Strand and  Myrtle Beach hosts numerous golf events including  the Hootie & The Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am.

Deciding to move to the Myrtle Beach area is the easy part.... deciding what part of the beach is your challenge.

Today I will start highlighting the areas starting with the north end.  Little River was the first village established in Horry County.  Indian Tribes called the stream Mineola, meaning “little river,” and that became its name.  To read more about the history of Little River click here.  Little River offers affordable housing, nearby golf, great restaurants,boating and easy access to Highway 17.  Minutes to  Calabash, North Carolina.

Some of my favorite restaurants are along the waterway in Little River -
