Horry CountyNorth Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach was founded more than 30 years ago when the communities of Windy Hill, Crescent Beach, Ocean Drive, and Cherry Grove united. North Myrtle Beach's accommodations include everything from rustic beach cottages and mom-and-pop motels to luxury resorts. Of course, you can't describe North Myrtle Beach without mentioning the shag, a dance that originated here and continues to thrive in local dance clubs and at annual shag reunions.
