Why live in Conway?

Living in Conway means getting the best of both worlds: a peaceful city with a suburban vibe that’s also a short drive away from bustling Myrtle Beach. Here are just some reasons why you should consider moving here:

  • Deep historic roots — If you want to live in a place that has a strong sense of place and history, Conway should be right up your alley. It is one of the oldest settlements in South Carolina, as evidenced by its historic downtown, which boasts many colonial-era structures. There’s also a wealth of buildings dating back to the 1800s, including the Conway City Hall, a former courthouse built in the Greek Revival style.

  • Easy access to Myrtle Beach — There’s no denying that Myrtle Beach is South Carolina’s premier vacation destination. But if you find it too expensive (or rowdy) to live in, take heart: Myrtle Beach is just a 15-mile drive away from Conway. That means you can enjoy all the perks of this popular vacation spot — including its famed beach — without spending a fortune on your home.

  • High-quality education — Conway is home to not one but two major institutions for higher learning: Coastal Carolina University and the Horry-Georgetown Technical College. Ambitious professionals can also attend Webster University, which offers a respected MBA program. A university city like Conway has a stable population and a robust local economy, which helps elevate home values.
