What Bert Has To Say About Myrtle Beach-Conway-North Myrtle Beach Metro Area


Myrtle Beach might be called the “northernmost city in Florida.” The wide, white, sandy beaches lined with high rise hotels and residences look just like a beach resort city in Florida. The area attracts some 15 million tourists per year. Serving this market are vast developments of chain restaurants, amusement parks, miniature golf courses, and a variety of local events.
