Myrtle Beach

A great destination for families, beach-goers, shoppers, golfers and putt-putt golfers.

Situated on the Atlantic Ocean on a huge beach that runs for miles.

Named 'Myrtle' Beach because along this area the flowering plant/shrub 'Myrtle' was everywhere at one time.

Golfers heaven, with over 60 golf courses in the area. Has plenty of mini-golf too! Many shopping malls, and shopping places to get anything you can imagine. An aquarium, Ripleys Believe it or not, Dixie Stampede, House of Blues, Diskc Last Resort, and things along that line are plentiful in what is a small town in the winter, but comes alive between May and Sept.

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans, a minor-league team of the Atlanta Braves plays here and draw about 4,000 in a really nice, new stadium.
