About the area
A short drive from the Grand Strand (about 15 miles from the Atlantic), the downtown area of this historic river town is home to a unique array of shopping, dining, and scenic views. Founded in 1734, Conway is rich with both American and natural history.
A drive through the town will take visitors down streets built around live oaks that are protected by a tree-ordinance designed to preserve its “Oldest Citizens.” Several historical markers also dot the downtown landscape, providing curious visitors with an idea of the area’s past.
Myrtle Beach, the busy hub of fun-in-the-sun in the middle of the Grand Strand's 60 miles of gorgeous wide beaches, offers a dazzling variety of entertainment, nature, history and dining for people of all ages. Of course, heading down to the beach is where you will want to go. Once there, spend the day building sand castles, boogie boarding and hunting for shark's teeth. And after you work up an appetite, choose from any of the 2,000 plus restaurants serving up the best in local seafood, barbecue, pizza, burgers, sushi and, of course, our famous seafood buffets.
