North Myrtle Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean along the northeastern South Carolina coastal area known as the “Grand Strand”. In the 1960’s, the beach towns of Windy Hill , Crescent beach, Ocean Drive & Cherry Grove joined forces to form the city of North Myrtle Beach.
Nine pristine miles of wide sandy beaches and approximately 15 square miles of land define the city as a growing mix of permanent residential neighborhoods, beach homes, hotels, motels and multi-storied condominiums. Theaters, shopping centers, restaurants, championship golf courses, city parks and other amusements serve a population estimated at 12,000 and growing with another 3.5 million annual visitors.
The Cherry Grove section offers some of the best fishing on the Grand Strand. Several marinas in Cherry Grove offer charter boats and deep sea fishing in the Gulf Stream of the Atlantic Ocean. Take a walk down Main Street and visit the unique boutiques and locally owned businesses. This is also the birthplace of the Shag, the official South Carolina state dance. This dance, born on the beach, combines fancy footwork and smooth moves.
North Myrtle Beach is a growing city that is carefully tended by folks who truly love their community. However you come, as a permanent resident or a vacationing visitor, you will find North Myrtle Beach the best place to be on the Grand Strand.
