There is a high crime rate and the climate is nearly unbearable in the summer, but all in all it's a nice and fun place to live. The people will keep you laughing and there is always something to do!
Favorite places are all the parks and beaches nearby. Savannah's Playground and the whole Market Common area are fantastic and family friendly.
Myrtle Beach seemed very safe, within normal conditions. Only on vacation so not sure about schools or normal life there, but excellent spot for relaxation.
My favorite place is the beach. I was not interested in a lot of the other things to do, even though there were lots of choices. Watching the sunrise and sunset are the must-dos. Even though beaches can get crowded, early morning and night provide much more solitude. Be sure to stay oceanfront with a view.
Crime was only up during spring break times. Non peak months it is very tranquil. The weather is mostly nice 10 months out of the year. Shops remain open in the mainland all year and most stay open at the beach
The best place to visit is Broadway on the Beach. Has a variety of entertainment that could last the whole day. Stay away from main street during spring break, you'll never get around in a vehicle.
I loved Myrtle Beach. It was like something out of a movie. It is a tourist destination for sure, but there's an ambience and a magical quality to it that is simply unmatched by other places I have been to.
The beach, of course. The food. The emptiness of the off season. The beauty of its location.
