To the south of Myrtle Beach, lies Pawleys Island which was first developed as a resort area before the Civil War. Pawleys Island also has many golf courses and many shopping and dining options but is less congested than popular Myrtle Beach which is firmly entrenched on the tourist map. The development of Myrtle Beach as a resort began at the start of the twentieth century when a Timber Company called Burroughs & Collins began to develop their seaside holdings located here. As the area developed and evolved, it first came to be known as New Town and then as Myrtle Beach in honor of the many wild wax myrtles that grow in abundance in the area. Today the area known as the Grand Stand is extremely well developed and has  wide array of recreational facilities that are bound to appeal to all kinds of tourists.
