Just miles away from the beach is a whole different world in the historic city of Conway. The city is full of history and Southern charm with lots of shops and restaurants for visitors to check out. Most Myrtle Beach visitors see Conway as a town to pass through on the way to the beach, but this great city is a delightful destination in its own right.
An active participant in the Main Street USA initiative to preserve historic downtowns, Conway offers a quaint mix of shops and stores. From wedding gowns to gifts and crafts, shoppers will find a variety of goods along the downtown streets.
Nature lovers will enjoy a stroll along the Waccamaw River on the Conway Riverwalk. Along the banks and boardwalks surrounding this popular blackwater river, visitors will see rustic bridges, marinas, a playground and a historic inn. The city celebrates this unique location around Independence Day each year with the annual Riverfest, which includes live entertainment and tons of family fun.More Info
