North Myrtle Beach is located on the beautiful Atlantic coast of South Carolina. It is part of the Grand Strand, an area of coastal beaches stretching from Cape Hatteras in North Carolina to the Indian Beach of Florida. Downtown, Main Street is lined frequently with restaurants, shops and bars.
Cherry Grove is Myrtle’s oldest neighborhood. It is known for its historic homes constructed in wood including one-story colonial homes and two-story structures with a green roof. The neighborhood’s style is similar to older homes in that it features high ceilings, hard flooring, brick accents and plenty of windows. Homes on ocean drive are unique because they feature more modern features including metal appliances, hardwood floors and clay tiled roofs.
