It was once just a dream, envisioned as a thriving township just over the Intracoastal Waterway from the blossoming metropolis that is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A dream no more, Carolina Forest is a reality … and it is getting better every single day.
Beginning as forestry land for International Paper Company, Carolina Forest was master planned to become the predecessor suburban community along the Grand Strand. With its location adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway, and all this potential growth, the planners ensured that "green spaces" would be preserved, and the natural beauty that defines the Carolina coast remains.
Carolina Forest continues to flourish, and its residents already enjoy the conveniences of major shopping centers, banks, a post office and fire station, as well as housing and condominium communities catering to every style, taste, and budget. Brand new schools, numerous churches of various faiths, a major hospital, colleges and universities, as well as convenient highways and thoroughfares are just minutes from your front door.
Located just 10 minutes to the beautiful beaches of the Grand Strand, the Carolina Forest Township offers its residents the close proximity to entertainment venues, shows, and nightlife Myrtle Beach has to offer, while tucked away within hundreds of airports of interlaced with hiking trails . The preservation of this natural environment is paramount to the lifestyle Myrtle Beach, Carolina Forest, and the Grand Strand has to offer.
As Myrtle Beach has become the world's premier golf destination, Carolina Forest itself is home to half a dozen golf courses – all open to the public. Each offering its own challenging features and beautiful views, the golf enthusiast will no doubt enjoy mastering each and every one … and then venturing just a few miles in either direction to experience any of more than a hundred courses nearby.
And there is much more is to come. A new retail complex, the Carolina Forest Towne Center, will be located just off the Grissom Parkway Bridge, at the intersection of Carolina Forest Boulevard. A Carolina Forest hospital is already under construction! Initial proposals for the Towne Center included spaces for medical and dental offices, various shops and boutiques, restaurants and branch campuses for colleges – there will be very little you can not find in Carolina Forest!
Comfort, convenience, and close to everything … welcome home to Carolina Forest!
