If you’ve landed on a potential move to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Dream Finders Homes is glad to make finding your dream home and planting roots here a little easier. Since 1991, we’ve grown from building high quality homes for military families in Fayetteville to branching out into other highly desirable Carolina markets (including Myrtle Beach).

What’s it Like to Live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina?
Living in Myrtle Beach is like living in a southern paradise. From amazing weather and an incredible beach lifestyle to low living costs and lots of natural beauty, there’s so much to love about living here.
60 Miles of Coastal Living
We can’t talk about Myrtle Beach without bringing up the incredible beaches. The white sandy shores go for miles, making it an ideal vacation destination AND permanent residence. Enjoy an array of water sports, fishing, boating, swimming, and more along the Grand Strand.
With an average of 215 days of sunshine per year, there’s no need to worry too much about snow here as it’s very rare. Summers are hot, but with a nice cool breeze from the ocean. When winter comes, you won’t have to stay inside because the temperatures will stay well above freezing, leaving you plenty of days to enjoy the many outdoor activities.
So Much To Do
Aside from the miles of beaches to walk on, there are tons of walking trails, parks, and entertainment opportunities here. One of the things people like to do the most is play at one of the many golf courses sprinkled throughout the city. Another interesting thing to do is go birdwatching. South Carolina is actually known to have a bird species list of more than 430. Plus, you can stay entertained at the many live music and cultural events hosted by the boardwalk and The Market Common in Myrtle Beach.
Friendliness is Normal Here
You really can’t beat good ol’ southern hospitality. With especially high tourism, locals are used to helping strangers in need, and all with a big smile. It’s not unusual to find everyone minding their p’s and q’s and even more so in restaurants, local stores, and other hospitality establishments.
Low Cost of Living
Overall, South Carolina has a lower cost of living than the national average. In Myrtle Beach, specifically, it’s 6% lower than the national average, with housing costs at 28% lower than the average. It’s always nice to know that you can get a high quality of life at such a valuable cost.
