Myrtle Beach is probably what comes to mind for many out-of-state visitors when they think of vacationing in South Carolina. In addition to 60 miles of beaches, this bustling city has many attractions, golf courses, and restaurants.

The Grand Strand is an area of coastal towns in Horry County and Georgetown County. In 1954, Hurricane Hazel devastated South Carolina’s coast, and as a result many buildings and trees were leveled along the Grand Strand.

During the 1960s Myrtle Beach began rebuilding, focusing mainly on constructing the golf resorts, beachfront hotels, and entertainment venues for which the beach town is now famous.

Reflections on Myrtle Beach

SCIWAY visitor Kat Harris says, “Early morning before the beach is filled with tourists and locals is the only time the hotels are silent, and the beach is peaceful.”

Contributor Gregg Turbeville shares of his photo, “Spring and summer are finally approaching, and the beach will soon be full, but some of the best times at the beach are during the ‘off-season’ when it can be quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. I took this early one morning when setting up to do some family shots for a friend.”
