Myrtle Beach is a popular vacation destination located along the Atlantic coast in South Carolina. It's known for celebrity-designed golf courses and an extensive boardwalk, complete with a Ferris Wheel. Myrtle Beach State Park has plenty of wildlife to observe and gentle walking trails, as well as excellent fishing. The weather is generally warm and sunny, with breezes from the ocean to help mitigate some of the summer humidity. This tourist town has a population of around 30,000 with 20% of Myrtle Beach residents aged 65 or older. 

Many of these seniors will need to move to assisted living in Myrtle Beach at some point. Costs for assisted living per month here average $4,050, notably higher than the state average of $3,500 according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019. By comparison, other cities in the state, such as Columbia and Charleston have assisted living costs that are much lower, at $3,248 and $3,590, respectively. The city's cost of living, which is 15 points lower than the national average, may help seniors on a budget better afford assisted living fees.
