There are many schools of thought when it comes to retirement destinations. Some people picture moving to a remote location deep in the woods and far from society. Others see themselves on an island that you can hardly identify on a map. Still, others assume they will spend so much time traveling and seeing the world that there is no reason to find a place to put down new roots. 

You might fall somewhere on that spectrum, or you may be more inclined to live somewhere close enough to spend plenty of time with your family, especially your grandchildren. 

Regardless of what you envision for retirement, Myrtle Beach has something for you. Here are eight of the top reasons to build your retirement dream house in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Many companies in almost every industry have struggled during the last 12-18 months. Some small businesses and large corporations have closed their doors for the final time in the last few years. Others are just hanging on and finally beginning to recover. 

One industry that hasn't slowed down in many areas of the country is real estate. 

In fact, in places like Myrtle Beach and throughout the coastal Carolinas, if anything, the real estate market grew dramatically during the pandemic and has shown no signs of slowing down. 

With many working remotely, where you live is not necessarily dictated by the location of your career. As the real estate industry continues to flourish, many are asking if Myrtle Beach is the right place to buy property. 

When it comes to building your dream home, there is a lot to consider. You need to determine whether or not you want to live inland or on the coast. You need to determine how many bedrooms and bathrooms should be included in the project to accommodate your family and friends. You need to factor in whether you want to work inside your garage or use it as a workshop. 

If you are working from home, you might want to incorporate dedicated office space into the design. You and your family will need to determine what kind of community you want to live in. 

Do you want wide open spaces or a convenient community center with a gym and pool? If you enjoy golf, do you want to live in or near a golf course community? 

The pace of life in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, is a little slower than much of coastal South Carolina. Through most of the community's lengthy history, it was known as a fishing village. However, it was once home base for the infamous pirate Edward Teach, known as Blackbeard. 

Fishing remains intricately tied to life in Murrells Inlet. Known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, residents and tourists enjoy the many excellent restaurants throughout town. 

While it is quieter than the Grand Strand in nearby Myrtle Beach, there is plenty to do and experience. It is the perfect place to build your dream house for your retirement years, your family's vacation home, or to which to relocate if you work in the Myrtle Beach area.
