Yachts For Sale In Myrtle Beach

Kings Highway, the main north-south route running parallel to the beach, was originally an Indian trail before European settlement of the “Grand Strand.” The road spanned from Boston, MA to Charleston at its zenith, and had the honor of George Washington traveling on it when he visited the area in 1791. The earliest attempts at exploration and settlement was by the Spanish but failed due to ravaging diseases. English colonists settled the area in the latter 1600s and established trade, which attracted pirates, notably Edward Teach a.k.a. “Blackbeard” and local pirate “Drunken Jack,” to intercept and plunder cargo vessels. With so many coves, islands and inlets, the Myrtle Beach area (and all the lowcountry of South Carolina) provided ideal cover and hiding places. Colonists formed Prince George Parish that became Georgetown in 1730, South Carolina’s third oldest city. Lowcountry Georgetown became the center of Colonial rice commerce.

In the early 1900s, lumber mogul Burroughs and partner Collins saw an opportunity to develop the beach as a seaside resort and named it Myrtle Beach for the native wax myrtle growing along the shore. Development expanded in the 1920s with the upscale resort, Arcady & Pine Lakes International Country Club—the first golf club! Sports Illustrated was founded at that time in Myrtle Beach and the Ocean Forest Hotel, one of the first grand beachfront hotels opened in 1930, but the textile magnate who developed it sustained heavy losses in the stock market crash and had to give it up. The hotel fell into disrepair after WW II was demolished in 1974 to make way for residential condos, Ocean Forest Villas. During the 1930s – 1940s, the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway opened in 1936 to pleasure boat and commercial shipping traffic, and an Air Force base was established in Myrtle Beach for training coastal pilots during WWII.

Myrtle Beach Pavilion was built in 1949 and the nickname “The Grand Strand” was coined in 1949 by the Myrtle Beach News which titled an article with the name and it stuck. Myrtle Beach became a city in 1957. The 1960s saw a golf boom in the US, and during the rebuild from hurricane Hazel’s destruction of Myrtle Beach, new golf courses were built on an annual basis, with over 100 in Myrtle Beach area today! The development of attractions, shopping, homes and other amenities brought waves of visitors and an influx of permanent residents to Myrtle Beach each year. Today over 14 million visitors are welcomed to The Grand Strand each year!

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade built in 2010 along 1.2 miles of oceanfront, features loads of shops, restaurants, hotels, amusements, rides, attractions and entertainment. The Boardwalk is known as the heart of Myrtle Beach.
