MYRTLE BEACH

Welcome to Myrtle Beach, below you will find all the Myrtle Beach neighborhoods starting from North to South. Some of these neighborhoods have a homeowners association and some do not. Before we embark on a journey through the charming neighborhoods of Myrtle Beach, let’s delve into a bit of history about this beautiful beach paradise. 

 

Myrtle Beach was officially incorporated in 1938 and attained city status in 1957 when its population surpassed 5000 residents. The name “Myrtle Beach” was chosen through a name-the-town contest in 1900, with “Edgewater” finishing in second place. The name pays homage to the wax myrtle, a shrub that thrives abundantly in the area. Prior to its current name, the region was known by various names such as Long Bay, Withers, and New Town.

As you explore Myrtle Beach, you’ll discover a variety of neighborhoods that each possess their own unique charm and character. Let’s embark on a journey from the north of the city to the southernmost reaches, uncovering the treasures that await in each locale.

The City of Myrtle Beach is not just a vacation destination; it is also a thriving residential community located at the heart of the Grand Strand. Stretching along the northeastern coast of South Carolina for 60 miles, the Grand Strand offers a mesmerizing display of natural beauty. Myrtle Beach, with its 35,000-plus permanent residents and millions of visitors, serves as the focal point of this coastal paradise, attracting people from all walks of life.

One cannot resist the allure of Myrtle Beach’s wide, sandy beaches and warm weather. The city offers an incredible range of entertainment, nightlife, golf courses, shopping centers, dining establishments, and live theater experiences. Whether you’re seeking relaxation, adventure, or a vibrant social scene, Myrtle Beach has it all.

The roots of tourism in this region can be traced back centuries. The earliest recorded tourists were Spaniards from Hispaniola, who landed about 50 miles north of present-day Myrtle Beach. In 1526, they established the first European settlement in the United States, known as San Miguel de Guadalupe, approximately 30 miles south of the city. Although the settlement was short-lived, it marked the discovery of the area’s natural beauty.

Over the next three centuries, the population of the region grew slowly. However, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, people began to venture here for vacations, even though the accommodations were quite rustic. At the turn of the century, Myrtle Beach had only a handful of permanent residents, but the allure of the ocean, sand, and trees drew more and more people to call it “home” as the 20th century progressed.

For nearly five decades, Myrtle Beach had a significant military presence. It was home to the U.S. Army Air Corps in the 1940s and later became the location of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base in the 1950s. However, the base closed its doors in 1993. Since then, the property has undergone redevelopment and transformed into the Market Common District. This vibrant district features an urban town center known as The Market Common and a beautiful Grand Park, complete with open spaces, recreation fields, a large lake, and numerous walking and biking trails. Warbird Park, located within the district, showcases static displays of three types of U.S. planes that were stationed at the former air force base. It is also home to the Wall of Service, a memorial wall honoring the military personnel and civilian staff who lived and worked at the base.

In 2018, Myrtle Beach earned the distinction of being designated an “autism-friendly” city and destination by the Champion Autism Network (CAN). The city received this recognition by actively working to provide more sensory-friendly experiences for children and their families. Savannah’s Playground, a beloved inclusive playground, stands as a testament to this commitment. Since 2022, the City of Myrtle Beach has partnered with CAN to provide autism training for city employees, fostering a more inclusive environment for everyone.

Today, Myrtle Beach is renowned as a premier vacation destination, attracting visitors and new residents from across the United States, Canada, and beyond. Its pristine beaches, vibrant entertainment options, and warm hospitality have firmly established it as a must.
