Ocean Drive NMB

Welcome to the heart of North Myrtle Beach - Known as the area's main hub of entertainment, Ocean Drive is located in the center of our collection of seaside villages and plays host to the majority of our area's festivals, concerts and events.  In fact many locals still refer to North Myrtle Beach as "Ocean Drive."

When Ocean Drive was first discovered, it was said to be "the widest beach in the world," with enough room for several cars to race along the shore.  The pavilion opened in 1940 and quickly became a popular hangout spot for local and visiting youth.  It had a first-class arcade, bingo hall, bathhouse, bowling alley and even a skating rink.  In the 1940's the Carolina Shag was born along the North Myrtle Beach coastline.  Known as the South Carolina state dance, shag is a variation of the swing, with gliding steps designed to avoid kicking up the sand.

The Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach conjures up vision of beach clubs with live beach music and shag dancers taking to the wooden dance floor.  It is a quaint stretch of beachfront in North Myrtle Beach that is a nostalgic blast from the past though there are new and beautiful condos and beach homes.

From Highway 17 in North Myrtle Beach take Main Street to the waterfront and you will land in the Ocean Drive section of town.  Enjoy the sunshine while you swim in the ocean and maybe take a dance lesson or two while you are in town. In addition to the water and shag dancing, Ocean Drive is a great place to shop at unique boutiques, eat at local family-owned restaurants and walk on the sandy beaches for which North Myrtle Beach is famous.

Mild weather year-round is what draws many newcomers to the area.  Average high temperature in the winter hover well above freezing, and snow is rare.  Still, given its coastal location the North Myrtle Beach region can experience heavy rains or worse if there's an active tropical season.  Summers are hot, but ocean breezes make the season bearable.  Fall and spring days in North Myrtle Beach may be some of the most enjoyable, as the temperatures sit in the mid-70's.  Rain is pretty frequent through the spring months, but the fall season is the perfect mixture of sunny days and cool evenings.

Average Weather Temperatures in North Myrtle Beach

Winter is between 45-60 degrees F

Spring is between 68-83 degrees F

Summer is between 88-91 degrees F

Fall is between 76-85 degrees F

In 1954 Hurricane Hazel destroyed the pavilion and much of the surrounding area.  However, Ocean Drive residents were able to pick up the pieces and rebuild, and in 1955 they introduced a new pavilion and an amusement park.  The towns of Ocean Drive, Crescent Beach, Cherry Gove, Ingram Beach and Windy Hill merged together to form North Myrtle Beach in 1968.

Fun never goes out of fashion, and the OD Pavilion Amusement Park offers the same family-friendly seaside entertainment that generations of visitors and residents have enjoyed.  As the only oceanfront amusement park on the Grand Strand, the OD Pavilion in North Myrtle Beach is the only place along our 60 mile stretch of coastline where you can relive the good old days of thrill rides directly on the beachfront.  Located in the Heart of it all on the Oceanfront just at the end of Main Street, this is one local attraction you and your family won't want to miss!!

If there's a benefit to living in a tourist town, it's that you can always find an attraction to visit, a new restaurant to try or a festival to attend.  It's no secret that vacationers return to North Myrtle Beach year after year in search of family adventures, romantic getaways or the chance to reconnect with old friends.  With an abundance of delicious dining, wide beautiful beaches and exciting activities why would you NOT want to call OCEAN DRIVE NORTH MYRTLE BEACH... HOME!!!

Cherry Grove Beach is a humble oceanfront community in North Myrtle Beach.  Its most prominent feature is the Cherry Grove fishing pier and its most unique assets are the saltwater channels that reach far into the neighborhoods of North Myrtle Beach.  The Atlantic Ocean borders one side of Cherry Gove Beach while Hog Inlet and all its channels and creeks border the west side of Cherry Grove Beach.  Play on the beautiful beaches and try fishing off the pier located between 34th Ave North and 36th Ave North.  Fishing in the Cherry Grove area is serious business.  The Cherry Grove Pier is iconic.  For generations fathers have taught their kids how to fish from the Cherry Grove Pier and this is also the site from where award-winning fish have been caught.  Built in the 1950's it was lengthened in 1999 and today at 985 feet it features a restaurant and tackle shop.  The two-story observation deck makes the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier worth visiting.  Rent rods and reels at the Cherry Grove Pier along with bait and lures.  You might want to take home a souvenir from the Cherry Grove Pier like a t-shirt, shark's tooth necklace or beach accessory.  This tackle and gift shop also sells cold drinks, including beer.

The Cherry Grove landscape is comprised of beach houses and condos that are near lakes, ponds and the salt marsh.  There are Cherry Grove condos that are on the oceanfront and feature amazing oceanfront views.  The Cherry Grove Condos themselves often have a fully furnished kitchen and many provide a washing machine and clothes dryer in the condo for convenience.  The oceanfront Cherry Grove beach houses give your family a front row seat to all the things on the beachfront.  Hundreds of beach houses in Cherry Grove offer delightful accommodations, convenient amenities and a terrific location for you and your family to live or vacation. 

While a great place to live, Cherry Grove is a wonderful vacation place as well.  Beautiful white sandy beaches welcome kids young and old to kick off their shoes and explore the oceanfront in bare feet.  The sand feels terrific on your feet and the ocean water is wonderful to a head-to-toe dip.  Get a lounge chair, a beach chair or just a beach towel and soak up the sun at Cherry Grove.  Read your favorite book, conquer a crossword puzzle or break out the Frisbee and volleyball for a friendly game with the kids.  Time spent on the beach in Cherry Grove entices relaxation that can be had on the beautiful beachfront.  Recreation in the Cherry Grove area includes swimming, parasailing, boating, golf and of course, fishing.  Swim in the Atlantic Ocean or float in the inlet.  Parasail boats give you a sky-high tour of the North Myrtle Beach area and you can even fly two and three people at one time.  Don't miss the opportunity to see North Myrtle Beach and Cherry Grove from that vantage point.  Boating in the Cherry Grove area can mean kayaking the inlet, canoeing the salt marsh and jumping waves in the Atlantic.  Boat rental opportunities are plentiful and boat tours are also available so you can relax and let someone else do the driving.

Cherry Grove Beach is just one section of the long stretch of sand that fringes the whole of Myrtle Beach.  It's a little more secluded, quiet, and a tad more untouched that its near neighbors to the south-west, and comes backed by winding creeks and waterways that wriggle through wetland plains before drifting out into the Atlantic.  This is a thin area of land, so you have the ocean to the east and the Intercoastal Waterway to the west.  No matter where you are you will have great views of the water, either the ocean or the inland waters, which makes for amazing sunrises and sunsets.

Whether you're looking for a relaxing place to lounge about, or you're looking for the excitement of living near the beach, Cherry Grove offers it all.
