Tree-lined streets, historic homes and churches, a revitalized business district, and the wondrous Waccamaw River are attributes of Conway, the seat of government for Horry County. Incorporated in 1898, Conway is home to nearly 12,000 people, a number that continues to grow as more people discover this charming city and the lifestyle it affords. Conway has much to offer visitors as well, including walking tours, riverboat cruises, antique shops, restaurants and cafes, the Horry County Museum, and numerous historic landmarks.

For many years, Conway has been the gateway through which millions of people pass each year on their way to Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand, most never realizing the unique experience of Conway.

There are many reasons to visit Conway. Follow the historic trails map for a self-guided tour of stately old homes, picturesque churches and more than a dozen buildings and sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Take a leisurely stroll along the Riverwalk to view Conway’s oldest landmark, the Waccamaw River. Enjoy Riverfront Park, located at the end of the Riverwalk for picnics and a playground for the kids.

Take a narrated historic riverboat tour that departs the Conway Marina daily. Enjoy shopping at any one of the new shopping centers bustling with activity on the town’s outskirts or the unique shops of the historic downtown business district. After shopping enjoy a meal from many different dining experiences, which range from home style cooking to cuisine that satisfies the most adventurous palates.

Discover the treasures of being a part of the Tobacco Trail or take in an exhibit at the Horry County Museum. Take in a live theatre production in the Old Main Street theater or Coastal Carolina University's Wheelwright Auditorium.

And while in town, enjoy the huge moss-draped live oaks standing along avenues where vehicular traffic yields the right-of-way as the huge trees stand defiantly in the middle of the street or just out from the curbs.
