Attractions in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
North Myrtle Beach is on the northern coast of South Carolina near the North Carolina state line. The greater Myrtle Beach community has been a family tourist attraction for decades. The area was originally inhabited by the Winyah and Waccamaw Indians. While Blackbeard's pirates visited the bays and inlets during the 1700s, most of the area remained uninhabited until 1900 when the first railroad connected North Myrtle Beach with its surrounding area. Development has increased rapidly since the 1980s, but many areas are still left to explore on foot.
