Surfside Beach— Way More Than a Pier

by the Town of Surfside Beach

For locals of the Grand Strand, the advent of the summer season means longer days, morning walks on the beach (now with fur babies allowed), and the swirling of jubilant vacationers all around us. It’s hard not to be happy with so many people relishing the beauty of our surroundings on a daily basis.

An autism-friendly town and destination, Surfside Beach is a safe, quiet seaside haven with a stellar public works department that works tirelessly to maintain our parks, streets and beaches. We also boast an engaged group of first responders that truly care about residents, visitors and public safety as their top priority.

Residents and business owners have the opportunity to serve the community by participating on one or more of many committees—from beautification, to supporting the businesses in town, to seniors, to planning and zoning. There is something for anyone who has the desire and inclination to serve.

And let’s not forget the array of top-notch restaurants, retail stores and service providers. A golf cart or bicycle is all that is needed to travel to each locale.

Covid-19 has put a damper on events, gatherings, travel, and some fun, but the Family Beach is here and ready to provide you with a safe place to enjoy yourself—whether that be for a day, a week or forever.

When asked, “Why Surfside Beach?” a common answer is, “It just feels like home.”
