The town also hosts the Socastee Heritage Festival, which draws significant crowds in April of each year. It is also in Socastee where visitors can enjoy the “wild side” of Myrtle Beach! T.I.G.E.R.S. Myrtle Beach Safari, a world-renowned wildlife preserve, is located on 50 acres of tropical paradise and home to over 130 endangered animals. The Intracoastal Waterway runs right through Socastee, so enjoy fun watersports at Island Adventure Watersports, near the swing bridge.
