We are excited today to bring you the newest real estate listings for sale in the Coastal Heights neighborhood of Conway, SC. Located in Horry County along the Waccamaw River, Conway is the county seat and is part of the Myrtle Beach area. Many of the buildings in Conway are on the National Register of Historic Places because it is one of the oldest cities in South Carolina. Included among these historic places is the City Hall building, which was reputedly designed by Robert Mills. Conway also played a part in the American Revolution, and small battles were fought near Kingston at Black Lake and Bear Bluff. In fact, the famous Francis Marion, or “Swamp Fox,” had a camp near Kingston just across the Waccamaw River. The name of the city was originally “Conwayborough” for General Robert Conway, but was changed in 1883 to Conway.
Conway may be a small town of just over 11,000 residents, but there are plenty of things to do to keep your family entertained year-round. For the golfer, Witch Links has been rated as one of the top activities in Conway. Reviewers on TripAdvisor.com found the course to be challenging with the occasional interesting obstacle in the form of the local wildlife, an alligator! Well-manicured greens and friendly staff make an afternoon of golf at Witch Links a memorable and enjoyable experience. In addition to golf, Conway offers other entertainment, including live theatre at Main Street Theatre. There, you can see such classics as M. Butterfly for a bargain price compared to the big-city theatres. Are you interested in historic sites? Take a tour of the L.W.
