Retiring in Myrtle Beach
If you’re looking for a place to retire, you won’t find many better options than moving to Myrtle Beach.
The Grand Strand has been often lauded by publications such as Kiplinger’s and Where To Retire Magazine as one of the best and most affordable retirement communities in the U.S.
Our area offers all the amenities you could want to enjoy an active, post-career life including great weather, affordable living and tons of things to do.
Many of the most popular pastimes in Myrtle Beach are popular with the 55 and older crowd, including everything from golf and fishing to dancing at throwback beach clubs and relaxing on the sand.
When you take into account factors like housing costs, tax rates, utilities and living expenses, the Myrtle Beach stacks up quite nicely against some of the most popular retirement communities on the east coast, without the crowds that flock to Florida and other spots.
South Carolina does not tax Social Security benefits, its property taxes are very low at between 4-6% and our state provides a generous retirement-income tax deduction.
There’s also an expanding set of communities and housing developments that cater specifically to residents 55 and older, offering an active lifestyle and lots of amenities. Among these are popular spots like Prince Creek in Murrells Inlet, Carillon at Tuscany in Myrtle Beach, Cresswind at The Market Common and Myrtle Trace in Conway.
