My wife and I are looking to retire in SC and are looking for something close to the beach (not too crowded). Have been researching Surfside Beach but would welcome other recommendations. Looking to spend in the mid/upper $200k.
We plan to visit Myrtle Beach soon to see the surrounding areas, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
This is my first post on this site.

Thank You in advance

Are you looking for a home or condo?
If you like that area, you may want to check Murrels Inlet or Pawleys Island as well.

looking for a home. don't know much about Murrels Inlet or Pawleys Island. I assume they would fit my search criteria of quiet, safe. Good for retirement?

Although MI & PI are nice family communities, they also seem to attract many active retirees as well. $250k homes are available but not abundant in Pawleys, you may have more choices in Murrells. I suggest you subscribe to the local weekly newspaper, the Coastal Observer, to get a feel for the area & the real estate. I can send you a decent search engine for home sales if interested.

There are some nice communities along Rte 707 in Murrells Inlet that may fit your price range. Here is a another thread on MI that may answer some questions:

We moved from Long Island in 2006 and love it. The beach at Pawleys & Huntington are beautiful.

georgetown is a beauitful old city with docks and old historical homes, great views and great prices, but there is a paper mill in town that's what keeps the prices lower. Murrells Inlet is a wonderful little community and Surfside beach also... not as tourist as myrtle beach... my my suggestion in North Myrtle Beach, or Cherry Grove and Little River. Little River is small town with that character, and it still has great prices on homes It's not far from the attractions and close to the beach.
Blessings
Cindy

Check out Conway, SC or Murrells Inlet, SC. Conway is about 15 minutes from the beach so you can avoid the high tourist seasons. Conway is a great little small community with quick access to the beach and surrounding attractions. Murrells Inlet is also less crowded than Myrtle Beach and closer to the beach.

I agree with the Murrells Inlet area. There are ALOT of retirees that live there now.
