Prince Creek wraps around a lush Tournament Players Club golf course, the only PGA TPC golf course in South Carolina, and its beautiful fairways are open to all who live in the development.
The overall community has been carefully designed, preserving the natural beauty of the area. Ponds and open spaces create a soothing ambiance and ensure that Prince Creek does not feel cramped. Most homes have a view of water, the golf course or a wooded area. Swans and blue herons are at home in Prince Creek, too.
Murrells Inlet, once a pirate hangout, is just ten miles from busy Myrtle Beach. Yet it is in a world of its own. Quaint but a little touristy, it is known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina and is famous for its shrimp and oysters. Boating and fishing are a way of life. Huntington Beach State Park, just a short drive away, is often uncrowded and is a great place to soak up sunshine and catch up on some reading.
Waccamaw Community Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission. Conway Medical Center, just 15 miles away, is also accredited by the Joint Commission.
This area has a humid climate. Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 30s, 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 52 inches of rain each year.

Francisco de Gordillo explored the present-day South Carolina coast during 1521 but was unable to establish a town. The French also failed to colonize in 1562. The English settled here in 1670, but they moved on to Charleston when the conditions worsened. The two Carolinas split officially in 1729. The state was the first to leave the Union during the Civil War.
South Carolina was once primarily agricultural and still grows peanuts, watermelons, peaches and tobacco. Today, though, it is mostly known for its textile mills. Wood products, asbestos, steel, pulp and chemicals are particularly important. A commercial tea plantation, and the only one in America, lies on an island 20 miles South of Charleston.
Top attractions include Fort Sumter, which is a national monument, the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, the Cypress Gardens (located in Charleston), Hilton Head resorts, the Cowpens National Battlefield, the Botanical Gardens and the Riverbanks Zoo.

Designed for Aging
Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
