About North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 85.43% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

Of important note, North Myrtle Beach is also a city of artists. North Myrtle Beach has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape North Myrtle Beach’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.45% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Another notable thing is that North Myrtle Beach is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the city’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
The city is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, North Myrtle Beach has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes North Myrtle Beach a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
North Myrtle Beach is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
