Grand Strand
The phrase “Grand Strand” is often seen or heard while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Grand Strand refers to the virtually uninterrupted 60 mile stretch of beach between Georgetown and Little River, SC. Each of the many communities along this shore has its own character, but all have the Grand Strand in common. Claude Dunnagan (1917-1994) is credited with coining “Grand Strand” when in 1949, his column “From the Grand Strand" appeared in the Myrtle Beach News.
