The City of Myrtle Beach is a community located at the heart of South Carolina's Grand Strand coast.  The city's 900-plus staff members are dedicated to being "First in Service," and we are ready to provide assistance and answer your questions at any time.  Our 30,000-plus permanent residents and millions of visitors enjoy wide beaches, warm weather and an incredible range of entertainment and activities.  Myrtle Beach was incorporated in 1938 and became a city in 1957, when the permanent population first topped 5,000.  The name "Myrtle Beach" comes from the wax myrtle, an abundant local shrub, and was chosen in a name-the-town contest in 1900.
