Evacuation orders have been lifted following Hurricane Florence. However, there is a lot of flooding on roads leading into and out of the area making driving hazardous. Travelers on the roads are encouraged to exercise extreme caution and check SCDOT.org or call 511 for the latest information. Be patient and expect lengthy travel times, blocked roadways or detours.
The recently renovated Horry County Museum is now housed in a larger facility that allows it to boast even more pieces that help tell the story of this wonderful area. A new addition is a beautiful aquarium built by the stars of Animal Planet's "Tanked" that houses a variety of local marine life.
