    Canadians love Myrtle Beach, S.C., and the entire Grand Strand from Pawley’s Island to Southport. Many visit annually.

    The Grand Strand is often called the Golf Capital of the World. We have a year-round temperate climate, more than 100 great public golf courses. In addition, we have great restaurants, wonderful fishing, outstanding shopping and a fabulous beach.
