Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has a rich and diverse history that dates back to the early 18th century. Originally inhabited by the Waccamaw and Winyah Native American tribes, the area was later settled by European colonists in the late 1700s. The city’s economy was primarily based on agriculture and fishing until the late 19th century when the tourism industry began to take off. The construction of the Intracoastal Waterway in the 1930s further bolstered Myrtle Beach’s reputation as a popular vacation destination. During World War II, Myrtle Beach became a hub for military training and defense operations. After the war, the city experienced rapid growth and development, leading to the establishment of amusement parks, golf courses, and luxury resorts. Today, Myrtle Beach is known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant boardwalk, and diverse entertainment options. It continues to attract millions of tourists each year, making it one of the most popular vacation destinations on the East Coast.
