Bang for your buck in Little River

The fishing town of Little River is named after the waterway which flows through it and out into the vastness of the Atlantic. It's located in the north of the state on the border with North Carolina, near to Myrtle Beach, and is one of the oldest towns along the greater Grand Strand. While you stay in a Little River vacation rental you'll understand true South Carolina hospitality, signature golf courses, shopping and entertainment which rival much larger places, along with gambling boats offering casino tables and slots to those who want to try their luck.

Fishing and gambling in Little River

There's two activities that draw most travelers into Little River – the fishing and the gambling. If you like sports fishing, you've come to the right place. You can jump on board one of the fishing charters to hook in a yellow fin tuna or sailfish, then take one or two of the catch back to grill up on the barbecue at your Little River vacation rental. Later in the evening, you can hop aboard one of the Las Vegas-style gambling boats that are docked in the town to have a flutter one of the blackjack tables or slots. Who knows, you may win big.

Wander the tranquil gardens

While you're in town, you can't miss the Vereen Botanical Gardens, a 115-acre slice of nature made up of marsh and wetlands crisscrossed by wooden boardwalks. The owners donated the land to Horry County and is was famously once visited by President George Washington. Set aside a little time to visit La Belle Amie Vineyard, owner by the descendent of French wine makers, where you can taste some fine vintages and also take in the lush landscape that produces the sumptuous drinks.

Hot summers and mild winters

Other than the tornado season in spring, there's no bad time to stay in Little River vacation rentals, though if you plan to visit in the summer, it's good to book up early to avoid disappointment. The coast of South Carolina has a humid subtropical climate which means soaring summer heatwaves best spent splashing around in the cool Atlantic Ocean and mild winters which are often warm enough to eat al fresco. While much of the country shudders in below freezing temperatures, those who travel to Little River in winter will be pleasantly warm.

See the black bears near Little River

Nature lovers can enjoy the beauty of the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge located close to Little River vacation rentals. The mix of freshwater tidal marshes, wetlands and pine forests provide habitats for a diverse list of wildlife. One of the most important birds seen here is the red-cockaded woodpecker, one of only a pair of woodpecker species protected by the Endangered Species Act. The forested region is also home to one of the few populations of black bears in the state, best seen on sensitive guided tours led by experts.
