Center for Carolina Living The options are endless: For fun, it’s hard to beat the Grand Strand. Besides playing on the beach, trying 100-plus golf courses, singing along at live music theaters and eating seafood at countless restaurants, there’s the shopping. You can spend a day sampling the boutiques at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, and then the night at the Alabama Theatre, located there too.

Myrtle Beach

blivious to anyone else around them, an older couple walked out to the beach and began an animated conversation in French about where to dine for the evening.

As they talked, it became clear they knew Myrtle Beach very well. It turns out that Paul and Marie Barbiere are Canadians, but have spent every winter in South Carolina for eighteen years. They enjoy the golf, the food and long walks on the beach.

Susie Robinette is from the Kingsport area of Tennessee, but she’s been visiting Myrtle Beach several times a year since 1991. About two years ago, she purchased a condominium at the beach and has since spent about 1/3 of each year enjoying the area.

“I just love the hustle and bustle here, but I also enjoy the peace and quiet in the winter,” she explained. Shopping is a favorite pastime, and she’s found several restaurants that are favorites, most notably the Flamingo Bar and Grill. “Their food is wonderful and we’ve gotten to know and love the staff there.”

She’ll be moving to Withers Preserve when her new condominium is built. “I have always been interested in the concept of what Withers Preserve is doing, by building a community with so much within walking distance,” she explained.

“I’m looking to the future, when it will be great to have a golf cart or bicycle and be able to get where I want to go.”

Ms. Robinette has friends who are in the process of buying at Withers Preserve as well. Meanwhile, they’ll all continue to enjoy the beach as often as possible.

Others have the same attitude about the Grand Strand – especially golfers.

With more than 100 golf courses to choose from, the Grand Strand is a magnet for golfers from everywhere. In fact, it’s #1 on Golf Digest’s ranking of “America’s Greatest Golf Home Tours.”

Center for Carolina Living Recently, Myrtle Beach was named the top-searched U.S. beach on AOL Search. For three consecutive years, the Myrtle Beach area was voted Most Family-Friendly Vacation Destination in South Carolina by readers of Palmetto Parent Magazine. Center for Carolina Living

The area was named #1 on the 2005 list of “10 Most Desirable Second Home Markets,” according to EscapeHomes.com. Forbes magazine ranked the Myrtle Beach area the 29th best location for business and careers (among 200 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas). There are hundreds of excellent restaurant choices within a short drive, including Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Restaurant. There are so many delectable choices for dining, and Restaurant Business magazine ranked the Myrtle Beach area #1 in the U.S. for growth potential.

At the north end of the Grand Strand is Little River – a century-old village. Fishing boats still ply the waters, and locals gather to talk about the catch and the weather. Moss-covered oaks hide entrances to new residential communities filled with people who’ve chosen to retire here.

Farther south is North Myrtle Beach, birthplace of the shag, the official South Carolina state dance. You can find places to dance the night away, and several times a year about 20,000 shaggers descend on the town to strut their stuff.

Myrtle Beach is at the center of the Grand Strand. The world-renowned Ripley’s Aquarium draws both visitors and residents with its impressive displays. It’s located at Broadway at the Beach, another mega-complex with shops, nightclubs, restaurants and more.

Coastal Grand-Myrtle Beach – South Carolina’s largest mall – is on U.S. 17 Bypass near the airport. It provides many retail outlets for even the most avid shopper.

Even farther south, more small communities line the coast, including the family beaches called Surfside and Garden City. Just a few miles inland, the historic town of Conway provides a cool respite from the dazzle of the beach. (For more information on Conway, visit www.CarolinaLiving.com and click on the coastal section.)

Throughout the Grand Strand and over to Conway, property values climb steadily. Residents work together to ensure measured progress, environmental protection, encouragement of the arts, better transportation and health services that rival larger areas.
