North Myrtle Beach
North Myrtle Beach was founded more than 30 years ago when the communities of Windy Hill,
Crescent Beach, Ocean Drive, and Cherry Grove united to form one specific area.
North Myrtle Beach’s accommodations include everything from rustic beach cottages and mom-and-pop
motels, to luxury hotels and resorts. Of course, you can’t describe North Myrtle Beach without mentioning the shag,
a dance that originated here and continues to thrive in local dance clubs and at annual shag reunions.
Nicknamed The Black Pearl, the Town of Atlantic Beach was formed mostly of Gullah/Geechee people,
descendants of slaves who lived for 300 years on the Sea Islands stretching from Wilmington,
North Carolina, to Jacksonville, Florida.
Today, Atlantic Beach is a revitalized community rich
in heritage with several festivals and cultural events taking place each year.
Surfside Beach, located on the South Strand, proudly calls itself “the family beach.”
Along its lovely beachfront, visitors will find beach houses, hotels, condominiums, and a popular fishing pier.
Garden City Beach.
