About Surfside Beach
Surfside Beach is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of South Carolina. With a population of 3,939 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Surfside Beach is the 95th largest community in South Carolina.
Surfside Beach real estate is some of the most expensive in South Carolina, although Surfside Beach house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Surfside Beach is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Surfside Beach is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Surfside Beach who work in sales jobs (19.27%), teaching (10.05%) and community and social services (8.08%).
Another notable thing is that Surfside Beach is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Surfside Beach’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Surfside 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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
Surfside Beach is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Surfside Beach isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 96.81% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
As is often the case in a small town, Surfside Beach doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
The overall education level of Surfside Beach citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 30.77% of adults in Surfside Beach have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
The per capita income in Surfside Beach in 2010 was $23,414, which is upper middle income relative to South Carolina, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $93,656 for a family of four.
The people who call Surfside Beach home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
