Myrtle Beach City Guide

The construction of the United States interstate highway system in the 1960s brought grand new opportunities to a little slice of seashore real estate in northeast South Carolina known as Myrtle Beach – the town was now an easy one-day drive from the major cities of the Northeast. Soon Myrtle Beach was “the Golf Capital of the World” with nearly 100 courses, as locals invented the golf package – room, board, and greens fees for one low price. Families soon followed golfers to the Grand Strand, a 60-mile stretch of pristine Atlantic Ocean sand. A popular retirement and snowbird destination, many of Myrtle Beach’s more than 10 million annual visitors also scout out local real estate prices.

Architecture and landmarks

If there is a building taller that the city’s Southern Wax Myrtle shrubs (after which it was named), it’s likely a hotel. Nearly all are modern constructions. A few low-rise motels pre-date the ravages of Hurricane Hazel in 1954 and stand as historic landmarks, such as the Rainbow Court and the Ocean Forest Country Club. The historic Myrtle Beach Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Station, a low-slung brick Colonial Revival building, is typical of the seacoast city’s commercial architecture. The Gay Dolphin Gift Cove has billed itself as “the nation’s largest gift shop” for over 70 years.

Residential design ranges from humble beach cottages to rambling antebellum-styled houses fronted by stately white columns. The Brookgreen Gardens is a former rice plantation turned into a celebrated sculpture garden by Anna Hyatt Huntington. The sculptor’s home in the park, Atalaya, is a landmark of Moorish Revival style.
