Myrtle Beach is a community on the move and one of the fastest-growing cities in the Eastern United States. It borders the Atlantic Ocean along a 60-mile stretch of oceanfront often referred to as The Grand Strand. Within this region of South Carolina, there are many distinct communities — each with its own identity and unique qualities.

The first hotel was built in 1901 and growth and development hasn’t slowed down since. Today, the destination attracts approximately 14 million annual visitors and has evolved into a year-round vacation mecca. Approximately 250,000 residents call this area home and for good reason: it boasts a vibrant economy, low unemployment, a wonderful climate and an exceptional educational system.

Altogether there are more than 80,000 accommodations available for rent, and with more than 1,800 restaurants, 100 golf courses and unlimited attractions and amusements, there truly is something here for all visitors! Myrtle Beach has also established itself as a premier meeting and convention destination, welcoming a wide variety of groups from throughout the nation.
