Conway is a small town of much history that maintains the status as our County seat for Horry County (H is silent so PLEASE pronounce it as ‘Oh-ree)


This lovely town is located on the edges of the Waccamaw River and used to be a bustling port for the tobacco and cotton industry along with the many other agricultural harvest that are produced here.


A short 10 mile+- drive to the beach will give you the enjoyment of coastal living without the high expenses.


I will not regale you with all of the history of this River Town as that can be found on many more knowledgeable sites than I could offer.  Just google Conway, SC history and you will learn so much.


Conway is home to the State Funded Coastal Carolina University which is currently home to 9,364 undergrads and shares 630 acres of South Carolina beauty and charm with its students, alumni and visitors.  This beautiful campus was proposed in 1954 (the year of my birth so it is a very monumental time in my opinion) and has grown since that time!


Another great educational facility located next to CCU is the Horry City:Georgetown&beds=0&baths=0&min=0&max=100000000&map=0&quick=1&submit=Search" title="Search Properties in Georgetown">Georgetown Technical College that has numerous academic programs and offerings for just about anyone.  Currently there are 9,808 that enroll and 2,290 people participating in the Workforce Development courses.  This college is currently celebrating its 50th year of success and is an integral part of our economic base in getting the right training for the right profession to the right person.  Also offering three convenient locations throughout the Grand Strand area for ease of use.


There are a number of wonderful opportunities to see this quaint town in its different aspects of growth and events. 


One of my favorite locations is the Conway Riverwalk which will take you down along the sides of the river, marina, peninsula where a number of special events are held throughout the year.  Just a great way to spend an afternoon or evening, by yourself, with family or friends.  Great venue for weddings or reunions.  


The LW Paul Living History Farm is a must see attraction at various times of the year.  This unique farm allows you to show your family what life used to be like and participate in the fun and work involved with farm life.  Coming from a working farm myself, it was very accurate and enjoyable.  Take the time to check it out.


Another fun Local location is the Thompson Farm in Conway where you will be enjoying various events, corn maze, group tours and other events.  Including one coming up May 21st which is the first in a series of events scheduled.  It is the First ever “Local Grown Country Music Fest”.  Two stages for bands and music, rides, fireworks, vendors, kids zone, and other venues.  Check it out today and get your tickets, you will be so glad you did.


During the season there is a fantastic Farmer’s Market open each Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM in the heart of Downtown Conway.  You will be able to get some of the best fruit, vegetables, plants and items that are grown or created locally.  What a great way to spend the day!!


Just take a moment and Google Conway SC events for your own myriad of exciting and fun ways to spend time with your family or just by yourself.


As a transplant from the hustle and bustle of Ventura, California I find that Conway SC is a great escape and a better than great place to call HOME!!!


And as of June 30, 2016 we can now say that we are home to the WORLD CHAMPIONS for College Baseball.  Our very own Chanticleers from Carolina Coastal University brought home the Trophy!!!!  What a better than great University to consider for your children or your own educational growth!!!
