Learn to Love Life in a Coastal Community
It doesn't matter if you live in rain-filled Seattle or sunny San Francisco; the rocky seascape of Maine or the white sands and beaches of South Carolina's Grand Strand, there's just something about the lifestyle of a peaceful coastal community.
It's one thing to vacation on the edge of the Earth, but to settle in for the long haul, knowing that every morning will be greeted by miles of rolling ocean and periwinkle skies -- there's a near-magical attraction to that thought on the part of most of America.
How many times have you gone home-hunting and asked yourself how many square feet you would sacrifice if it meant owning a few dozen feet of private beach location? Perhaps it's the lure of the unknown; maybe it's the security of having an escape route at your backdoor -- whatever your reason, if you're looking to move, chances are it's a friendly coastal community you've got your eye on.
The amazing thing about coastal communities is that, depending on where you go, you can get anything from constantly serene skies and stunning sunsets to continuously clashing elements, with lightning and cresting waves and whipping wind battling for supremacy. Whatever features and amenities you want from your oceanfront view, you can find it on the coast.
Moreover, the effect that the sea's presence has on the human psyche is directly noticeable in most coastal communities. People that live in coastal towns tend to be more laid back, easy going, and generally more prone to enjoying themselves with relaxing activities than people inland. It's tough not to when you've got beach sports, swimming, fishing, sunbathing, and boating at your fingertips -- and the salty breeze in your hair.
One of the most sought-after seaside cities in the United States is the legendary Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina. Fine white sands, relatively calm surf, legendary sunrises, and bathwater ocean temperatures are only the beginning of the allure of this coastal community. Myrtle Beach also offers a staggering variety of entertainment, from one-of-a-kind live shows with dedicated theaters playing year-round to resorts, amusement parks, water parks, nature parks, and abundant shopping offering endless afternoons of entertainment.
Of course, that barely touches upon the multifaceted coastal community of Myrtle Beach. The ocean alone is worth years of fishing, dolphin sighting and swimming, extreme watersports like parasailing and kitesurfing, and of course the ever-popular jetskiing. Then you head inland and you find yourself in the land of miniature golf, laser tag, four-star restaurants, and casinos. There is literally something for everyone at Myrtle Beach.
In particular, if you're a lover of the game of golf, you'll find yourself in a virtual haven when you come to Myrtle Beach. With over a hundred golf courses within an hour's drive, and some personally crafted by legends like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, this coastal community is a golf lover's dream.
So when it comes time to take the family someplace new -- even if it's a long vacation rather than a complete move -- keep Myrtle Beach, the hottest coastal community on the Grand Strand, high on your list.
