summer funIs there a greater place to spend the summer than Myrtle Beach? We certainly cannot think of a better place. One of the reasons we continue building high-quality homes in northeastern South Carolina is because people continue to find that our area is a great place to spend summer among other seasons. In fact, Myrtle Beach recently cracked the top ten of a comprehensive list of the best small cities in America that included the likes of Asheville, NC, Reno, NV, Anchorage, AK, and Boulder, CO. They said this about what makes Myrtle Beach excellent:

“Last year, 19 million visitors climbed aboard 50 direct flights from around the country to frolic in calm waters, see the Ripley’s Aquarium and then go for a medieval dinner. After that, there’s the 1.2-mile-long Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade, perfect for walking off the feast. With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder that the city tops our Attractions subcategory for small cities.”

If you are looking for a city in which to spend your summers, look no further than the white sand beaches of Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. 

What Makes Myrtle Beach the Best Summer City?

The Weather

Considering nearby Columbia and interior South Carolina, you would think it would be oppressively hot during the summer; however, the average temperature in June and July is a reasonable mid-80’s and there is almost always a comforting breeze.

The Beach

The pristine white-sand beaches of northeastern South Carolina are what originally drew attention to the area. Unlike some beach cities, there is plenty of space and sand to accommodate residents and visitors. 

The Recreation

There are plenty of options for many other recreational hobbies, including:

  • Disc Golf Courses
  • Cycling and Mountain Biking
  • Jogging trails
  • Surfing, Wind Surfing, and Paddle Boarding
  • Indoor Rock-Climbing Gyms
  • Fresh Water, Saltwater, and Deep Sea Fishing
  • Wildlife Viewing

The Golf Scene

There is not a better golf city on the coast. There are dozens of world-class golf courses that attract visitors from all over the country.

After you have spent a day on the beach or playing golf, the Grand Stand offers endless entertainment and more excellent food than you can imagine.
