Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is quickly becoming one of America's
fastest growing retirement areas with its mild winter climate, shopping outlets, low
taxes, hospital and medical centers, theatres, airport, over 100 golf courses, and
beautiful beaches and inland waterways. This area has always been a popular vacation
destination, and with the comparative low cost of living, people are starting to see
the other benefits of relocating here all year round.
Myrtle Beach, located in the heart of the Grand Strand, boasting nearly 60 miles of
magnificent Atlantic coastline most of which is sandy beach stretching from Little
River to Georgetown. The quaint fishing village of Murrells Inlet and the family
friendly beach of Surfside are a part of this. There are a number of piers dotted along
the beach allowing access for the fisherman to test this skills in the great Atlantic
ocean. The Inland waterway provides a safe refuge for boats and there is a number of
outlets along the Strand to give access to the ocean.
Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park add to the undeveloped beauty
of the coastline. Opposite Huntington Beach State Park is Brookgreen Gardens, the
worlds largest sculpture garden that often hosts concerts and festivals all year
Golf Digest has recently rated the Grand Strand the highest rated golf community
nationwide. With over 100 golf courses in the area and many housing estates built
around these courses, this type of development makes Myrtle Beach a golfers paradise.
