Until incorporating as the City of North Myrtle Beach in the early 1970s, the North Myrtle Beach area was made up of four separate beach towns — Cherry Grove Beach, Windy Hill Beach, Crescent Beach and Ocean Drive Beach. Today, each section of this beautiful city has its own unique attributes offering great diversity with many restaurants, attractions and things to do.
Here's a look at some of the communities which make hotels in North Myrtle Beach and the north end of the Grand Strand a special place to vacation:
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and visit the quiet neighborhood of Cherry Grove Beach. Located inside of North Myrtle Beach, Cherry Grove is praised for its fresh seafood, great fishing, and wonderful vacation rentals. The big attraction here is the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier, which is loved by locals and vacationers alike. Head over to the Cherry Grove Pier for a stroll or try your hand at fishing. Who knows — you may even set a new catch record!
Just north of North Myrtle Beach is the town of Little River. This fishing quaint town is known as one of the oldest towns along the Grand Strand and boasts fresh seafood, fishing charters, and seafood festivals. One of the most revered events in Little River is the annual Blue Crab Festival, where people from all over the Grand Strand flock to sample delicious crab dishes. Many fishing charters can be found here, as well as casino boats for those lucky vacationers.
OK, so Calabash is technically in North Carolina, but it is so close to North Myrtle Beach, S.C., that many vacationers trek across the state line to this seafood haven. Known for Calabash Style seafood, this fishing town draws large crowds for their unique fried seafood dishes. Along with fishing and cuisine from the sea, Calabash also offers an abundance of gift shops for locals and vacationers to enjoy.
Surrounded by North Myrtle Beach on all sides, this small (only 4-5 block wide) beachfront area was once known as one of the East Coast's premier African-American beaches, a vibrant vacation destination throughout the mid-20th century. These days, the small community is made up of mostly locals and is home to a large portion of residential properties, however once a year it becomes the epicenter of one of the beach's most well-know events — the Atlantic Beach Bikefest. This motorcycle rally has been taking place on Memorial Day weekend for more than 30 years, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors to the coast each year and being called the "largest African-American bike rally in the U.S.".
