Destination guide

Quaint, quiet and drippin' with Southern culture

If you're craving a quaint and quiet escape to the south, a Conway vacation rental might hit the spot. The small city of Conway, which English colonists originally named Kings Town in 1732, is one of South Carolina's oldest towns. The tree-lined streets are filled with long-standing homes and buildings that just drip with history. And you can't get more charming than the waterfront walkway that follows the Waccamaw River. And if you have a hankering for some ocean, you can get to the Atlantic shores and Myrtle Beach right-quick.

Things to do

Brave the bustling beach or soak up the tranquil silence

Conway vacation rentals are a way to satisfy your coastal cravings without staying in a crowded beach town. The bustling boardwalk, Family Kingdom Amusement Park and the busy bars of Myrtle Beach are a mere 14 miles away. The Horry Country Museum can show you some of Conway's extensive history. And any nature lover will go wild for the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge. You can kayak through this peaceful refuge, admiring the massive trees growing out of the swamps. Or take a swing at the Wild Wing Plantation or Myrtle Beach National golf courses.

Activities

Rejuvenate with a long walk along the Conway Riverwalk

The Conway Riverwalk is oh-so worth it. This picturesque path weaves through the city as it follows the Waccamaw River, and along it are parks, aboretums and a marina. You can catch a yoga class on the grass or hop on a Riverboat Cruise. And then you have the historic downtown area, which has shopping, landmarks, museums and the mouth-watering cuisine of the south. Tantalize your tastebuds with icy mint juleps and classic Lowcountry Boil, a savory mix of steamed shellfish, potatoes and corn on the cob.

Weather

Lazy, muggy days filled with sun and frequent rainfall

This is the Deep South, so y'all be ready for some hot weather. If you're here in the summer, pack your bugspray, and expect some mugginess to go along with those 98-degree days. Rain is common from June to September, whether it's a light shower, a drenching downpour or an awe-inspiring thunderstorm. Winter lows drop to the 30s, and chilly coastal winds blow in from time to time. If you're hitting the beaches, early summer is when you'll find them most crowded. Myrtle Beach has several fall festivals, making October a lively vacation time, too.

Natural features

Go low-key in Carolina's low country

Wherever your Conway vacation rental is, you'll have the privilege of enjoying some scenic southern landscapes. About 14 miles from the Atlantic, the city's on the South Carolina Coastal Plain, which means this is low country, baby. Water, swamps and wetlands abound. The winding Waccamaw River is called black water, due to its dark color from tannins in decomposing leaves. Thousands of animal species, including alligators, blue crabs, turtles, ducks, eagles and more depend on the Waccamaw Wildlife Refuge for their habitat, which you can explore at one of the area's parks, trails or waterways.
