For families just starting to those in full swing of enjoying their retirement, Myrtle Beach has something for everyone. This charming place has big-city amenities with real small-town charm. Myrtle Beach itself has about 35,000 residents, while the metro area is home to less than half a million people. It has the same amount of people as cities like Asheville, Knoxville, and Roanoke.  Nevertheless, with a steady influx of tourism, you will find no shortage of big-city amenities.

For those concerned the area is too large, RealStar builds homes in several communities that are just a short drive from the famous Grand Strand. You can feel the charm, comfort, and quiet of a small town, while still taking advantage of incredible restaurants, entertainment, and natural beauty abundantly around you.

Some of the activities you might enjoy while living in this area include fantastic fishing, world-class golfing, kayaking, dancing, or going to the local museums. This isn't even mentioning the beautiful beaches readily available and waiting for your toes to sink into their sand. 

Whether you’re wanting to go and do any number of activities or sit and watch the waves, Myrtle Beach provides it.

Weather

The weather in 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. While tropical systems and hurricanes can be a concern, most systems make landfall either north or south of our area.
