Little River is the secret gem found nearby bustling Myrtle Beach. Whether you’re looking to take in the scenery and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, or tackle many different activities in a burst of energetic fun, Little River delivers exactly what you need. This is a lovely place to call home.

For those wishing to venture out, you can hop on jet skiing tours, go kayaking, charter boat fishing, crabbing, and even gambling on the Big “M” Casino Ship. The Big “M” is the only gambling ship in the Carolinas, which is a real find if you’re feeling lucky. You can also take a ride on The Sea Screamer, a dolphin and snorkel tour that takes you by some of the shrimp boats -- a surefire way to find some happy, well-fed dolphins. On the quieter side, there’s Vereen Gardens, which boasts a 1,500 ft. boardwalk over the intercoastal. This is a gorgeous walk to take with those you love.

For the golfers among you, there are over 100 golf courses within a short distance of Little River. It’s a golfer’s paradise.

After all the activity there’s lots of riverside dining available, frequented by the locals and offering great food with astounding views. There’s nothing as relaxing as sitting down after a full day by the water and eating a fresh, delicious meal.

While Little River is not right on the ocean, it’s within a short driving distance of several beaches. These include North Myrtle Beach, Sunset Beach, and Cherry Grove, all approximately 15-20 minutes away by car.

The weather in North Myrtle Beach is one of the key points of attraction for many new residents. The average temperature is never higher than the mid-80s, but there is an extended season of mild weather from spring through late fall. Winters are not particularly cold. Summers are not extremely hot, especially compared to areas in Lynn such as Columbia and Florence. Winter is mild, though it is not out of the question to see snowflakes every few years.
