Murrells Inlet is a seaside town in Georgetown County, South Carolina, just a few miles south of Myrtle Beach, with a population of 8,547 at the 2010 census. The town was once primarily a fishing village, but has grown substantially, along with the rest of the "Grand Strand" in Myrtle Beach, into a popular tourist and retirement location. The early history of the area goes back to the Waccamaw Indians who settled along the creeks and rivers, and later, with English settlements when the land was divided into plantations.
Now, Murells Inlet is considered to be the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, and is home to some great golf courses.
