  • Retirement Living in Scenic Myrtle Beach

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Myrtle Beach, Home Buying in Myrtle Beach, In My Neighborhood in Myrtle Beach  |  April 21, 2011 4:03 PM  |  2,959 views  |  No comments
    Myrtle Beach RetirementCoastal towns have been popular with retirees for decades, and it’s undeniable that Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has its own particular charm. This beautiful area features several fabulous 55+ communities, as well as a variety of activities which appeal to active adults.

    Also known as the Grand Strand, the Myrtle Beach area first became popular with vacationers in the early 1900s. Myrtle Beach incorporated as a town in 1938 and became a city nineteen years later, in 1957. The area has recently experienced a period of rapid growth, but that has not taken away from Myrtle Beach’s relaxed coastal lifestyle.

    Golf enthusiasts will have no trouble finding an award-winning course in the Myrtle Beach area. There are dozens of golf courses, covering a wide range of rates. Many courses offer special discount tee times and coupons to make golfing more affordable. Just a few of the top-rated area golf courses include Aberdeen Country Club, Long Bay Club, Waterway Hills, Tradition Club and Litchfield Country Club.

    In addition to golf, active adults can find many activities throughout the Myrtle Beach area. Shopping and dining opportunities are abundant, as are movie theaters and performing arts centers. As with any coastal area, beach activities and water sports are popular with both residents and visiting tourists. The area also boasts amusement parks, water parks and casino cruises.

    Myrtle Beach is located at the center of the Grand Strand, a popular stretch of beaches which ranges over 60 miles from Little River to Georgetown. While Myrtle Beach itself is a hot spot for vacationers, most retirees will be happier avoiding the tourists by choosing a community just outside of the city. A few popular areas include Little River, Conway, Surfside Beach, Murrells Inlet and Pawley’s Island.

    When it comes to active adult living, the Myrtle Beach area has many lovely communities which are either age-restricted or age targeted. Seasons at Prince Creek West is an age-restricted community in Murrells Inlet which welcomes residents aged 55 or better. This beautiful community began as a Levitt & Sons property, but was later acquired by Dockstreet Communities. The new owner has big plans for the community, including a 29,000 square foot clubhouse, multiple swimming pools, hobby and game rooms, and outdoor sports courts.

    Those who prefer all-age living can consider communities such as Surfside Beach Club, in Surfside Beach, and Meadows of St. Patrick, in Murrells Inlet. Surfside Beach Club features amenities that will appeal to active adults, such as a community clubhouse and an outdoor swimming pool. While Meadows of St. Patrick does not provide its own amenities, it could be an ideal setting for those who prefer to live in a charming community that does not have the level of involvement found in other SC active adult communities.

    Wherever retirees choose to live, the Myrtle Beach area will provide a charming coastal lifestyle, as well as close proximity to the beautiful Grand Strand and many activities that are sure to appeal to active adults.
