First Person

“2009 was the first time we vacationed in Myrtle Beach. It exceeded our expectations. The resort that we stayed at was great, very kid friendly. There was so much to do and see in Myrtle Beach. We loved everything about it. The water temperature was outstanding ... no need to get used to the cold ocean water because in Myrtle Beach the water is simply just warm! We loved it so much, we are returning again this year!” – Polanowski Family from Wilkes Barre, Pa.

Myrtle Beach Area Senior Clubs and Organizations

While retirement to the Myrtle Beach area can certainly a transition into a more relaxed lifestyle with days spent golfing and on the beach, many who retire here are interested in becoming involved in the community—whether through volunteer work or participation in senior organizations and group activities. The Myrtle Beach area offers plenty of opportunities to stay busy, even as life slows down.

In addition to the area’s picturesque shoreline and mild climate, senior citizens will find a wealth of activities throughout the community that are sure to make the Myrtle Beach area feel like home, including:

The Horry County Council on Aging helps facilitate many of the wonderful activities and organizations that keep Myrtle Beach area senior citizens busy. They are committed to providing services and programs that afford our seniors the opportunity to live independent lives in their own home and community. The council on aging also maintains an online event and activities calendar that can be found on their website, www.hccoa.org.

Their office is located at 2213 North Main Street in the historic city of Conway, but they help maintain senior centers throughout the area. Find out more information on each below:
