Approximately 15 miles west of Myrtle Beach lays the city of Conway, an integral part of the Grand Strand, despite its inland location. Rich with area tradition and history, Conway is known for, among other things, its beautiful old live oak trees. Conway’s historic oaks measure from the smallest at 6 feet in circumference to a whopping 20 feet. Billed as “Conway’s Oldest Citizens”, the city has been built around the trees, keeping them safe from the path of development.
The first settlers to Conway, then known as Kingston, arrived in 1735. The rivers around the Conway area were vital links for shipping goods and transportation and, still today, the Conway Riverwalk is one of the community’s most tranquil and beautiful amenities. It was said the first Myrtle Beach visitors came from Conway… and they still visit today. Decades later, the city of Conway represents the unofficial “gateway to the Grand Strand” since the vast majority of travelers pass through Conway on their way to Myrtle Beach.
