Myrtle Beach Celebrates National Travel and Tourism Week, May 3-9
Located in the northern end of the Myrtle Beach area and just a short drive inland, Loris began as a railroad town serving the lumber industry in the late 1880s. Loris is also the birthplace of chicken bog, a traditional Southern dish consisting of rice, chicken, sausage, and spices. In celebration of this scrumptious dish, the community hosts the annual Loris Bog-Off Festival each year which draws thousands to the area. Additionally, a revitalized downtown offers shopping, dining and a local farmer’s market with a feast of fresh produce and home baked goods.
