102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

39. Farms

The landscape here is pretty well developed near the coast – hotels, restaurants, houses, businesses, condos, etc.

But drive ten or fifteen minutes inland and you can be in the middle of nowhere and, say, on a farm. That’s right, in addition to having some of the best beaches and golf courses in the world, the Grand Strand is also home to several working farms that are open to the public. Take a tour, pick up some fresh produce, or check out some beautiful gardens – whatever you do when you get there, it’s a sure bet that adding a trip to the farm is unique way to literally get away from it all.

L.W. Paul Living History Farm

The Living History Farm, an extension of the Horry County Museum, aims to recreate farm life in the area during the period of time from 1900-1955. Among the activities visitors can expect to see and learn about are plowing with mules, soap-making, grits-grinding, cow-milking, and crop-harvesting – all things that can easily be taken for granted in today’s fast-paced world.
