Murrells Inlet, S.C.

Area Overview
Enjoy the charm of the Marshwalk & more in Murrells Inlet

Although officially an unincorporated section of Georgetown County, Murrells Inlet’s rich history pre-dates much of the Grand Strand coast because of its accessibility by boat.

The Winyah and Waccamaw Indians lived and thrived around the bountiful fishing waters and pirates of the 1600s and 1700s, including Blackbeard himself, used the tidal creeks that feed into the small port as an ambush/hideout.

With European settlement came rice and indigo plantations, along with a thriving fishing industry and a small but vibrant community.

Today, the ocean still drives the “Seafood Capital of South Carolina” and its economy, although more from commercial and sportfishing, seafood restaurants and waterfront real estate than buried treasure.

A healthy inland development along Highway 17 Bypass buttresses the waterfront dining district along Highway 17 Business.

The Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a wooden walkway that accesses a dozen seafood restaurants and bars, is the centerpiece of the modern Murrells Inlet.

Single-family homes and multi-family units have extended inland across Highway 17 Bypass, where golf courses, marinas and shopping centers have replaced former rice plantations.

Murrells Inlet maintains its Southern charm and natural beauty at the scenic Brookgreen Gardens, the oldest and largest botanical sculpture garden on the East Coast, and Huntington Beach State Park. Both are situated on the former Alston family plantation, which was later bought and donated for preservation.
