Residents of the Grand Strand know just how special this area is. Temperate weather year-round, friendly faces wherever you go, and a lower cost of living is driving thousands south every year. But with so many places to choose from, how do you pick the optimal spot to settle down? Well, throw on some sandals and sunglasses because we’re about to make a seriously compelling case for sunny Myrtle Beach.
1.The golf courses are world-class
For many golf lovers, having a top-notch course not far from home is just a dream. Many devote entire vacations to golf – but what if you lived where others traveled hours to get to? The Myrtle Beach area is home to more than 100 championship courses including The Dunes Golf & Beach Club, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, Tidewater Golf Club and True Blue Golf.
2.The boardwalk is also among the nation’s best
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade isn’t just another pathway that runs along the shore; National Geographic recognized it as the third best boardwalk in the nation, and it’s easy to see why. Hop on the 187-foot Skywheel, pop in for some food at any of the numerous restaurants, pick up a souvenir to make all your relatives jealous or just bike the route with your family.
3.Festivals, live shows and endless entertainment options
From the Blue Crab Festival to the Sun Fun Festival and the Carolina Country Music Fest, you’ll never run out of things to do or see. While many beach towns plan their special events around the summer season, Myrtle has activities year-round.
4.It feels like spring and summer all year long
Forget about suffering from seasonal affective disorder in Myrtle Beach. With mild temperatures even in the winter, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors—and the 60-mile stretch of beach—any day. While most of the U.S. is suffering through freezing, single-digit temperatures in January and February, Myrtle residents enjoy averages in the upper 50s and lower 60s!
5.There are endless shopping and dining options to explore
6.Property taxes in South Carolina are some of the lowest in the country
Plus, Myrtle Beach’s Horry County has some of the lowest in the state! Whether you’re looking for a place to permanently call your home or for a spot to visit for summer (or winter), Myrtle has everything you could ever want.
As far as shopping is concerned, hit up the local mall (Coastal Grand Mall), visit either of the nearby Tanger Outlets or find something to take home at Myrtle’s newest shopping center, Market Common.
With all these compelling reasons to move to Myrtle Beach, it’s harder to make a case NOT to relocate. Looking for your dream coastal home? Consider Waterbridge, a new gated community in Myrtle Beach.
