North Myrtle Beach: Live Music on Main Street
The nine-mile long beach community of North Myrtle Beach continues to thrive, almost 50 years after its inception. In 1968, four existing communities – Cherry Grove, Windy Hill, Ocean Drive, and Crescent Beach – were combined to form the city. Let's see what this fun beach town has in store!
Prominent annual festivals celebrate everything from St. Patrick’s Day to the end of summer. North Myrtle Beach is also the birthplace of the Shag dance, which became the official state dance of South Carolina in 1984. Strains of beach music can be heard in the Ocean Drive section nearly every night as those who love the Shag dance the night away.
You’ll love the small-town charm of this community, which is home to Barefoot Landing and a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment, and shopping options. Right next to Barefoot landing, you’ll find the Alabama Theatre, home to dazzling live entertainment ranging from country numbers to comedy shows.
