For decades you have given your effort and energy to your career. Every day you did your best to make your company better. Whether you worked for yourself, climbed the latter at a corporation, or built your own business from scratch, the time has come to pass the mantle to someone else. Retirement is a time to ride off into the sunset and enjoy everything for which you have worked so hard. The big question is about where you are going to spend your golden years. Do you want a cabin deep in the woods? Do you imagine fishing every day on your houseboat? Do you want to eat at every fancy restaurant, enjoy nightlife, and dance with your partner? 

It is possible you and your significant other do not see eye-to-eye on where and how to spend your retirement.

It is no secret that Myrtle Beach is one of  the best small towns in America. Millions of tourists travel to our corner of South Carolina every year to enjoy the Grand Strand, white sand beaches, many world-class golf courses, and everything else the area has to offer. The secret has been out for a while and we continue to gain national attention for this amazing area. 

There is little to complain about when it comes to living in Myrtle Beach. For those who love the peace and slower pace of life associated with coastal living, there is plenty of room to relax. For those who enjoy dinner and a show, southern nightlife, and exciting events, they can find more than they could experience in a lifetime. The temperature in coastal South Carolina is mild all winter but cooler in the summer than nearby inland cities. However, one concern of current and potential future residence is hurricane season. The Carolina coast has been called hurricane alley, because of the Gulf Stream, a river of water in the ocean that steers Atlantic tropical systems toward the southeast. 

As winter turns to spring, we are reminded of wonderful it is to live by the beach and the ocean. Myrtle Beach is one of the best places to live according to a USA Today article about which we wrote. The white sand beaches for which it is famous and the world-renown Grand Strand are part of what makes our region so attractive to new residents, vacationers, and retirees. The weather is another factor that draws people from far and wide to our little slice of coastal Carolina heaven. 

As the flowers and trees bloom with the warmer temperatures, unfortunately, allergy sufferers will experience their symptoms ramping up. The good news, coastal communities typically experience lower pollen counts than inland areas. The frequent ocean breeze actually does help blow pollen away, especially by late morning through evening. However, there is still some pollen in beach communities, and it can find your way into your home or vacation property.
