There are around 10 towns that make up the Grand Strand, starting with Little River which borders North Carolina. As you head south, you will then go to North Myrtle Beach, Atlantic Beach, Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Garden City, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield, Pawleys Island and then Georgetown. This is one of the reasons I like this area so much. Each town has its own personality. If you get tired of one, take a 15 to 20 minute drive and you will find an area that has a completely different feel.
Little River is known for its fresh seafood and easy access to the ocean by boat. You will find Main St. in North Myrtle Beach and plenty of places to do our state dance, Shag. Rent a golf cart to explore Surfside Beach, Garden City and their fishing piers. Go fishing and visit the Marshwalk in Murrells Inlet. Kick off your shoes and experience the Lowcountry in Litchfield, Pawleys Island and Georgetown. If laid back is not your thing, make sure you visit Myrtle Beach.
So, the next time you are on the Grand Strand, take a short drive and see all the things this area has to offer.
