Fall in Love With the Beach

Local to Local in Myrtle BeachEvery local has a story. That moment, that place, that made you fall in love with Myrtle Beach. In fact, you loved it so much, you moved here (or you never left). And as a local, you know the best the beach has to offer our visitors. 

Each Monday from Nov. 9 through Nov. 30 we will pose a question about your experiences in Myrtle Beach, giving you an opportunity to share your story with a photo for a chance to win prizes from our Myrtle Beach area partners. You can expect questions such as what is your favorite memory from the beach? What is your favorite thing to do in Myrtle Beach? What is Myrtle Beach’s best-kept secret that only locals know about? What makes Myrtle Beach special? Join our Local to Local in Myrtle Beach group or bookmark this page to ensure you don’t miss the question of the week.
