Myrtle Beach and The Grand Strand Real Estate Market
Everyone loves the beach, and magical Myrtle Beach is the second most visited coast in the United States. It's a great vacation escape. But change your scenery, change your address, change your life -- AND STAY FOREVER!
Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand is the place for people who love natural settings, but it's also a hub of culture and excitement, where big city sophistication mixes perfectly with a laid-back lifestyle and just plain fun. It's all here!
The Grand Strand laces together a string of communities including Myrtle Beach (the Strand's heart), North Myrtle Beach, Cherry Grove, Ocean Drive, Atlantic Beach, Garden City, Surfside Beach, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown. You can find lazy beaches, historic districts, family-oriented entertainment, and high-energy activities all along the Grand Strand. The diversity of Myrtle Beach and surrounding environs makes it your perfect beach retreat and gives you an address with personality.
- Murrells Inlet is a charming marsh-front community, the unofficial Seafood Capital of the World. You can dine waterfront in high style or barefoot; the choice is yours. A popular diversion is presented by the Murrells Inlet Community Theatre, which offers three productions per season, Youth Theatre Workshops held during the summer, a Lowcountry Playwriting Competition, and acting and technical workshops. The Blessing of the Inlet provides an exciting day of entertainment, exhibitions, children's activities, seafood and an arts and crafts festival held creek-front in Murrells Inlet. Go boating with alligators or sample the best of seafood cuisine in Murrells Inlet.
- Brookgreen Gardens, located in Pawleys Island, was the first sculpture garden in the US and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 9,200-acre property includes themed gardens with American figurative sculptures, the Lowcountry Zoo, and trails through several ecosystems on the property. It was opened in 1932, and is built on four historical rice plantations, taking its name from the former Brookgreen Plantation.
- Georgetown County is situated on a peninsula between the Waccamaw River and the Atlantic Ocean and is home to Pawleys Island, Litchfield and Murrells Inlet, near the headwaters of the Sampit River. The county rose from the historic seaport of Georgetown and features miles of black-water rivers and saltwater creeks, vast pine forests and cypress swamps, and centuries-old rice plantations. The famous Historic District of Georgetown includes the Kaminski House and the Rice Museum, along with more than 50 additional antebellum mansions. The Harborwalk in Georgetown offers art-filled galleries, charming shops and delectable dining.
- Natural wonders abound in Myrtle Beach, with more than 30 parks and gardens with long-armed live oaks draped in Southern moss, 60 miles of seashell encrusted beaches, lazy rivers and tidal creeks, and wildlife in the air and on the sand. Live theater, family attractions, interactive museums, botanical gardens, outlet shopping, nightclubs, restaurants, and some of the best golf in the world add to the magic. Myrtle Beach is also home to The Ripken Experience, one of the nation's top youth sports facilities. Live musical and theatrical entertainment in Myrtle Beach ranges widely to suit every inclination. "One, The Show" is acclaimed as the most spectacular musical on the East Coast and is presented at Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach is a shopper's paradise, with two Tanger Outlet locations, Market Common and Broadway at the Beach, which encompasses 350 acres of shopping, dining, and attractions like Ripley's Aquarium, the Palace Theatre, and the IMAX 3-D Theatre.
Myrtle Beach and nearby towns boast gentle winters and sultry summers, an easy way of life with attitude. The vibe is varied, from dune buggies to stretch limousines, from putt-putt to more than 100 world class golf courses, from exotic night life to cultured entertainment, and from upscale privately enclosed communities to picturesque marsh-front neighborhoods.
