If you look at a map of the Grand Strand you may find it difficult to find Little River. This community lies a bit inland from the tourist resort of North Myrtle Beach. Little River sits on the Intracoastal Waterway. This community offers a slower pace than the tourist areas of the Grand Strand. Despite its location away from busy Myrtle Beach, you still have all the fun of the area without the tourist crowds. This village had its start with fishing. That continues today with both professional fishing as well as fishing by tourists and locals off the backs of boats. You can choose to take a charter to inland waters or off shore for deep sea fishing.
Fishing is not the only reason to go offshore. Another reason to visit Little River is to take one of the two offshore casino boats. You get onboard the ships in Little River and the boats exit the Intracoastal Waterway to go offshore where it is legal to gamble. You get to play just about any gambling game you can think of as well as slots. You can indulge in the buffets and take in the beauty of the water. All of this is possible with a casino cruise. Jets skis also offer fun off shore. You can rent those around the docks where the boats gather.
Another reason people visit Little River are the golf courses. Four of the favorite courses in the community are Cypress Bay, Eagle Nest, Glen Dornoch and Harbour View. These courses offer plenty of challenge for those who seek the links and those just learning them. Many choose to travel to Little River just for the golf. Nevertheless, there is a great deal more to do. You can take off and go horseback riding if you want. This is a great activity for everyone in the family to enjoy.
If you want to take in good food then Little River has much to offer. You can try fine dining at Brentwood Restaurant. Snooky's offers a more casual dining experience along with great food and excellent service. For fresh local favorites, you need to visit the Parson's Table, located in an historic church. Wine should be on the menu. You can go for a wine tasting at La Belle Amie vineyard and take in the local vintages. These are just a few things you can do when visiting Little River.
