Little River, South Carolina is the perfect small town nestled within the Grand Strand.

Known for its great seafood restaurants, amazing fishing & boating, the annual Blue Crab Festival, and beautiful historic live oak trees, Little River has carefully kept it's slower pace of life untouched from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach.


Common sights of the day include early morning fishing and shrimp boats going out for the day's catch, grabbing a bite to eat at one of the waterfront restaurants
while watching the jetskiiers play, sailboats traveling past beautiful homes on the waterway. Family's taking their boats the short trip to Bird Island to relax in the sand.

You can also golf at one of the Little River courses, shop at one of the many quaint shops around town, or taste the local flavor at La Belle Amie Vineyard. Just a short drive from the waterfront, La Belle Amie regularly hosts wine tastings, vineyard tours, and concerts with live local bands all year long.                

And for those looking to have a night out on town, Little River is just a short drive to all the fabulous attractions of the Grand Strand.  Although don't forget, docked in Little River, a few Las-Vegas-style casino gambling boats can give you the experience of  world-class casino gambling by trekking out to international waters where gambling is legal.

Last but definitely not least, held every May, on the weekend after Mother's Day is Little River's Blue Crab Festival.  Bringing thousands of visitors to enjoy the family-oriented events, it's nationally known as being one of the country's top events paying tribute to the famous blue crab. The event features some of the nation's top artisans and entertainers. A Little River institution, the Blue Crab Festival features delicious local seafood and of course, blue crab. Throughout the years, the festival has grown in size, and is now among South Carolina's most popular events.

It's so nice to be able to have a place so close and yet untouched by the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. I just may get in trouble for putting the word out!

Amy- Good blog.  I don't think you will get in trouble for it.  As long as you don't make it a habit!  But that's what good southern hospitality is...sharing with everyone.  We don't mind sharing some of our secrets with AR, do we?
