Welcome to Carolina Forest.


Known to its residents as “The Forest” and to others as Myrtle Beach’s “bedroom community” the unincorporated portion of Horry County between Myrtle Beach and Conway has much more to offer than just a place to sleep.


In addition to its many family-friendly neighborhoods, this rapidly developing area also now offers plenty of great amenities. Ranging from top-notch schools to elaborate shopping centers, the area’s offerings include a tone of retail locations, a bevy of businesses and a variety of restaurants and bars.


There’s even a brand-new library and community center which now serve as the central gathering place for a community that’s quickly gaining its own, distinct identity.


Thanks to a variety of factors it’s become one of the most popular places in town to live in recent years.


When it comes to Carolina Forest homes, this is an area with plenty of great properties on the market and bargains aplenty. It was an area hit particularly hard during the recent housing bubble and thus there are many opportunities for first-time homebuyers of those looking for good deals on newer homes.
