Aynor, Conway & Little River
Affectionately called the “Little Golden Town,” Aynor is located in western Horry County. The town got its start in the early
1900s as a terminus for a railroad from Conway. Each September, the town hosts the Aynor Harvest Hoe-Down Festival with crafts,
food booths, music, dancing, and more.
Tree-lined streets, historic homes and churches, a revitalized business district, and the wondrous Waccamaw River are
what make Conway such a charming town. Conway has much to offer visitors, as well, including walking tours, riverboat cruises,
antique shops, restaurants and cafes, the Horry County Museum, and numerous historic landmarks.
Little River was a popular harbor for pirates in the 1700s and Civil
War blockade-runners in the 1800s. Little River’s most popular event is the Blue Crab Festival, held each May.
Arts and crafts, entertainment, and educational exhibits are featured alongside booths offering a variety of delicious foods –
including crab cakes, steamed crabs, and other blue crab creations.
Located 35 miles northwest of Myrtle Beach,
Loris’ claim-to-fame is its annual Loris Bog-Off, a festival and chicken bog cooking contest that draws huge
crowds each year. A local specialty, chicken bog is made with chicken, rice, sausage, and assorted seasonings.
