The Grand Strand offers more in the way of single family homes than anywhere on the east coast. You can live on the Intracoastal Waterway with your very own dock and hop in your boat on a whim. Maybe you just want a nice modern townhome in a community where your kids are safe to ride their bikes along a street lined with palm trees and glorious flowers. The gated golf communities are second to none for privacy and breathtaking views of the beautiful greens, ponds, gardens, and lakes.
One of our finest neighborhoods for young families is Carolina Forest, just outside of the city on Highway 501.
