Recent U.S. Census data has shown Myrtle Beach as the second fastest-growing metropolitan area in the country between 2016 and 2017. While that may come as a surprise to some, it makes perfect sense to us. After all, who wouldn’t want to live in an area that:
- Features a beautiful, 60-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline?
- Boasts average daily highs at the peak of the spring and fall seasons in the mid-70s – at a time of year when our friends to the north are either just thawing out from a harsh winter, or seeing temperature dips that foreshadow its imminent return?
- Instead of spring cleaning and fall leaf raking, highlights those same seasons as the best times to enjoy more than 80 championship golf courses at your disposal?
- Lets the great outdoors take center stage in leisure activities well beyond the beach and golf course, and be the focal point of an active lifestyle that includes biking, hiking, fishing, hunting and so much more?
- Offers so many more evening entertainment choices than “dinner and a movie” – with hundreds of area restaurants ranging from uber-casual to the best in fine dining, and gathering points like the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Broadway at the Beach boasting a vibrant, eclectic nightlife scene to suit virtually every social taste?
- Homeowners enjoy average annual property taxes that are a fraction of those in more populated markets in the Mid-Atlanic, New England and Midwest, and along the California coast?
- The average yearly tax sum more closely resembles an average monthly mortgage payment in the aforementioned markets?
