Carolina Shores Reviews

1 review
I retired here. We are five minutes from beach and 10 minutes from North Myrtle Beach. There are lots of restaurants, so many different shopping areas. You are close by to tourist attractions in nearby North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach but do not have to fight the traffic during the summer. The homes are affordable with low yearly taxes.
