Murrells Inlet is a marshland community that according to legend was named after Captain Murrell, a pirate who used the inlet as his base. This gem of a small community, with only 3,300 people is known for its seafood, including oysters, crabs, clams, fish, and shrimp. Founded in the late eighteenth century by a Captain Morrall, Murrells Inlet has supplied the Waccamaw Neck with fresh seafood for over 200 years. You can watch the Fishing boats as they leave the docks daily, and purchase fresh fish caught that day. If you enjoy deep-sea fishing you will find charters that will take you out for a fishing excursion. Nearby Huntington Beach State park is considered to be one of the best bird watching areas on the east coast. This village is located in what is called the Grand Strand, which is an area that runs from North Myrtle Beach to historic Georgetown. The Grand Strand is a popular area for visitors as it offers an array of motels, restaurants, campgrounds, beaches, and shopping areas.
