I love NMB. It is quiet and family oriented. It is close to everything you need as far as restaurants,shopping, medical etc. almost all beach goers are abiding with animal laws and disposal of waste. I find it appalling someone would trash our beautiful beach but it happens occasionally. The noise ordinance is usually obeyed except for black bikers week . The ribbing of their motorcycles is loud and annoying and goes on all hours of the night . It becomes troublesome for the weaving in and out of traffic too.

I have lived here all of my life and I am in love with it ! I go to North Myrtle Beach high school and am now a senior and have had a wonderful experience. My favorite thing at the beach is our oceans and night life. We have so many things for families to go out and do together. There are also countless food choices that will never leave you bored of the same place. Our schools are very diverse and a great place for students to attend with many extracurricular activities to involve themselves in. Lastly the job opportunities are endless since this is a tourist town there are many places that are always looking to hire, especially in the summer time, but also in the off seasons as well so no worries.
North Myrtle Beach is a city, that although is less well known than Myrtle Beach, nonetheless has its own advantages. One of its advantages is that it is less known than other cities in South Carolina, and therefore, is generally not as busy as far as tourist traffic is concerned, making it possible for people to spend less time traveling and more time exploring what the city has to offer.
