My husband and I, along with our two young children are relocating to either NC or SC by summer of next year. We have lived in NC before so we are a bit more familiar with the coastal areas. I have gone to SC for many years but stayed in the Myrtle and Pawley's areas, as well as a quick day-visit to Charleston. We are planning on taking a vacation within a few months in order to visit areas and pick where we would like to move to. We are definitely planning on renting once we get to the location. Within a year or so, we would like to buy a nice piece of land and have a home brought to the location. We would be getting a loan through the VA and our budget for land and home would be in the $150k range. We lived in coastal NC so we would love to be within driving distance of a beach, but not SO close that we are in flood zones. We got spoiled being only 20 mins away from two beaches..But I would say within an hour is reasonable. The beach absolutely doesn't need to be Myrtle (it gets way too busy), but any beach would be great...a nice little pier or boardwalk is a plus. We love the old-town feeling, with farms and where our neighbor isn't on top of our house. I'd like an area where I can have some livestock like chickens and goats. A good school system is a must, as well as a SAFE area. If anyone has any suggestions, please share them! I'd like to round up a list soon and take a visit

I suggest you take a look at Conway, Aynor, and Little River. From any of these, you can access North Myrtle Beach or Cherry Gove pretty easily via Rt 22.

Thank you! I looked into Conway and the area looks beautiful. Are there any other towns you suggest? It doesn't need to be by Myrtle, i would love to see other beaches.

We are thinking about relocating from Charleston either to Conway or Little River. it depends on the $$ for the best offer.

I loved the charm that Charleston has! I wish I stayed there longer.

If you want to consider further south, we love a little town near Charleston called Summerville. When we were deciding where to move, we felt Summerville was too far from the beach for us but is within your parameters so you might want to consider it as well.

I actually looked into Summerville! I was a bit surprised by the amount of burglaries that were reported there..it looked like a nice town.

If you are concerned about floods then be careful about where you choose in Longs. With Buck creek and Waccamaw rivers much of Longs is quite flood prone. Little River is a nice area with more terrain changes. Avoid the low-lying spots and choose a lot/home that sits a little higher than the others and you'll be fine.

Regarding flooding, common perception is the closer to the ocean the more flood prone. But that's true only for floods enhanced by the storm surge in hurricanes. In pure rain events flooding can be just as much of a problem far inland as along the immediate coast. In Hurricane Matthew flooding was extensive as far west as Lumberton & Conway.

In addition to Little River you may also want to check out Calabash, NC.
