Welcome To

Little River, S.C.

Area Overview

Little River is big fun when it comes to restaurants, shopping & casino boats

Just beyond North Myrtle Beach and heading north, you’ll find Little River, a town that’s home of the annual Blue Crab Festival and several eateries and attractions along the Little River Waterfront.

The earliest settlement in Horry County maintains its character as a small fishing village.

Originally called “Mineola” by Native Americans, the translation “Little River” serves as the namesake of the town and the body of water that flows from the Atlantic Ocean along the waterfront (Mineola Avenue) and forms the state border with North Carolina.

The Intracoastal Waterway begins its inland track to Georgetown at this point, and much of life in Little River is based on boating, fishing and watersports.

Marinas line the coast and waterway, as do seafood restaurants, casino boats and outfitters.

The village knows how to throw a party, hosting the famous Little River Blue Crab Festival in the spring and the Little River Shrimp & Jazz Festival in the fall.

Although the area has been settled by farmers and fishermen since the late 1600s, the village remains unincorporated.

Waterfront condos and golf villas make up much of the new real estate, although single-family home developments are going up in inland areas.

The Horry County Police provide service to the area and a small volunteer fire department is supported by Horry County Fire & Rescue.
