North Myrtle Beach was founded more than 30 years ago when the communities of Windy Hill, Crescent Beach, Ocean Drive, and Cherry Grove united. Each of these communities has its own appeal, as witnessed by generations of vacationers who return to one locale year after year. North Myrtle Beach’s accommodations include everything from rustic beach cottages and mom-and-pop motels to luxury resorts.
The city has nearly 16,000 residents and is also home to many fine restaurants and family amusements. Of course, you can’t describe North Myrtle Beach without mentioning the shag, a dance that originated here and continues to thrive in local dance clubs and at annual shag reunions.
