Little River Neighborhoods
The quiet fishing village of Little River (pop. 7,027), one of the area’s earliest coastal settlements, is a few miles north of Myrtle Beach, along the Intracoastal Waterway at the South Carolina/North Carolina border. The area was once a popular hideout for pirates and Civil War blockade-runners. Known for its fresh seafood, fishing charters, annual Blue Crab Festival and historic live oak trees, Little River moves at a relaxed pace. About 55% of Little River’s residents are older than 45, with the median age at 49. Children under age 18 make up 18.6% of the households, whereas 32.3% of Little River’s households are individuals or non-families.
