The Myrtle Beach Area's Quieter Side


You probably know that the Myrtle Beach area has long been considered one of the country’s top vacation destinations, and with good reason.  The combination of sunny beaches, hundreds of restaurants and thousands of activities give families more choices and more variety than most other beaches… combined!  You may not know, however, that Myrtle Beach has a quieter side… close enough to all of the fabulous activities, but without the crowds and traffic that can take the “relaxing” out of a vacation.

The prospect of quiet relaxation combined with proximity to all of the Grand Strand’s activities has drawn “in-the-know” families to the South Strand communities of Garden City Beach and Surfside Beach for years.  Located just minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach, these closely-knit communities are adjacent to the fishing village of Murrells Inlet, commonly known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, and offer vacationers a wide range of accommodations, all with easy access to one of the most beautiful (and uncrowded!) stretches of beach on the Grand Strand.

Back in the early 1970s when Dunes Realty first opened its doors, Surfside Beach was a sleepy little seaside town dotted with beach homes and bungalows, and Garden City Beach still had more vacant lots than houses.  As Myrtle Beach has grown, so has the South Strand; however, the essential character of both has remained the same.  Even though you can still walk down the beach on the Fourth of July without tripping over a fellow vacationer, you can also hop in the car and take the short trip to Wild Water Waterpark, Broadway at the Beach or Market Common.

So, if you're looking for a family vacation with something for ALL members of the family, look no further than Garden City Beach, Surfside Beach and Dunes Realty!
