Little River is a city just over the bridge of North Myrtle Beach. North Myrtle Beach High School is located in Little River so it’s right next door, which makes the commute really easy. Little river is five minutes from the beach and North Myrtle Beach is where all tourist go visit which makes it the best place to work during the summer. It’s a really friendly, diverse community. I’m able to go outside for a walk at night time without fearing for my life. Since Little River isn’t on the beach side, that makes the houses a lot more affordable and they are also extremely nice.

I love Little River because it is between Calabash and North Myrtle Beach, which are both equally amazing. Little River is full of hidden treasures, great food, and fantastic people. Attractions include taking a walk down the beach, or taking a hike in the nearby Vareen Gardens. Young or old there is a always something fun to experience.
I've lived here since the day I was born. I have always loved my hometown. It's a bustling little fishing town where everyone knows each other and you're never far from good cooking. Casino boats, fishing boats and good seafood are never far away, either. Unfortunately the drug scene has gotten worse over the years and heroin is taking over just like it is everywhere else. I hope that it one day resolves and my sweet little fishing town is once more sweet.
