About Myrtle Beach

The Grand Strand begins at the South Carolina state line at Little River (in Horry County) and stretches south to Pawleys Island, S.C. (inside Georgetown County.) Considered one of the nation’s top vacation destinations, the Grand Strand hosts an estimated 13.5 million visitors annually. The Grand Strand has seen steady growth in population in the past several decades. This population explosion has been evident in the increase of the number of residential construction starts and infrastructure development. Money magazine rated the Grand Strand as one of the top 20 places to retire in America. The number of persons over the age of 65 has grown from nearly 18,262 in 1990 to an estimated 30,793 in 2000. This increase of 69% boosted this portion of the population of Horry County to account for nearly 17% of the resident population.
