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!!
