About Little River
A glimpse into local life will have you thirsting for more of our slower paced lifestyle, quiet pleasures and temperate climate.
Little River residents enjoy slower, more serene communities, less traffic, and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the greater Grand Strand. Yet all the amenities of a larger metropolitan area are a short drive from our peaceful town.
Plan a picnic beneath our moss-draped oaks, watch the shrimp and fishing boats from our historic waterfront, dine in one of our world class restaurants, or shop to your heart's content. If golfing is your sport, you'll love our many challenging courses.
Located on the IntraCoastal Waterway and with beautiful beaches nearby, we have the best the coast has to offer. The next time you are looking for that perfect vacation get-away, think of Little River, South Carolina... you might just decide to stay!
