Myrtle Beach Taxi
Believe it or not, Myrtle Beach was once virtually uninhabited until the early 1900s, when the Burroughs & Collins Company, a timber/turpentine firm, began developing the Myrtle Beach area as a resort. In 1901, the company built the beach’s first hotel, the Seaside Inn. Its birth name was Long Bay or New Town until the Horry Herald sponsored a contest to officially name the area. Mrs. F.E. Burroughs, wife of the founder of Burroughs & Collins, won with the name Myrtle Beach, because of the many wax myrtle trees growing wild along the coastline. Today, Myrtle Beach has bloomed from its humble beginnings into a busy metropolitan hub of the Grand Strand. While the prime attraction is the beach, the resort paradise of Myrtle Beach also boasts fun off the sand, by boat, body or paddleboard or underwater by scuba or snorkel. Cultural theatres and shows for the whole family abound by land, as well as parks, hiking and biking trails. A few of our more popular stops for our Myrtle Beach taxi clients include:
