Conway is a quaint little town nessled 12 miles from Myrtle Beach S.C. We have an excellant real estate market. Plenty of work oppertunity. I serious doubt that you meet more friendly and hospitable people then those that live here. With our new highway system you can get any where from Georgetown S.C
to Little River S.C within 45 mins. It only takes about 15 min to get to the beach and lay out or take a walk. There is a wonderful night life not to mention plenty of shopping stores,malls and opportunity. Conway is just simply put a down to earth home town with plenty of opportunities for fishing, hunting, sports activities and healthy living. Y'all come!

I've lived in this small town called Conway all of my life. Everyone loves the river around here so that's where most peoples summers are spent on a boat. Also we have some great places to eat and shop in downtown Conway like The Crafty Rooster, Pickled Cucumber, and River town Bistro. Most everyone knows everyone so when you drive by someone walking they'll most likely wave because we consider everyone our neighbors. No matter where you live you'll probably be 10 mins or less from a store in most places. When help is needed there's always someone willing to help whether you know them or not. It is a good place at heart through and through.
great place to live, easy access to everything you need. Close enough to the beach but do not have to live in the traffic. Great restaurants to eat at, amazing night life, family friendly environment. River life experience as well, kayaking, sight seeing, holiday events, downtown stores are a must see!
