What’s NOT to love about living on the Grand Strand?
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area, aka The Grand Strand, is what we call ‘home’. Strand Security is a locally owned AND locally operated small business. We live where we work, we work where we live.
We love the simple, southern life after moving south over 10 years ago from Maryland.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’d like to share 5 reasons why we love living it up on the Grand Strand.
South Carolina beaches, need we say more?
The Grand Strand boosts over 60 miles of beaches, from Little River on the North Carolina border down to Pawleys Island! Public beaches, private beaches, two State Parks and lots of activities.
and so so much more!
If you love the sand between your toes, the Grand Strand is the perfect place to live as you’ll have year-round access to beach activities!
The Grand Strand is home to hundreds of restaurants. No matter your taste, you’ll find it here. From Seafood restaurants in the SC Seafood Capital of Murrells Inlet to Franchise Restaurants at both Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing, to speciality restaurants all over the Grand Strand. There is something for everyone. Lots of southern food and charm to be found!
We love, love, love that we can be outside year-around. We might not be able to use our pool in the winter time, but it’s certainly warm enough to play golf or go for a beach walk. Our kids wear shorts and t-shirts during all seasons and we can run, bike and walk most days.
Who doesn’t love sitting on their porch for most of the year?
Talking about the weather… the Grand Strand has a subtropical climate. The ocean temperature is affected by the gulf stream, making August water temperatures range upwards of 80F! Say what?
Especially for those who have lived in the North East, say goodbye to cold water temperatures and start enjoying the warm ocean waves.
Last but not least, living on the Grand Strand is affordable, cheap even compared to other areas of the US.
Housing is affordable and new home construction is at an all-time high. South Carolina taxes are some of the lowest we’ve seen, making relocating to the Grand Strand a great option for those who work remote, or those looking to retire!
Now that we’ve shared why we love the Grand Strand, we’d love to know from you what you love about it! If you are in need of home security, new cameras, a home theatre, a business security solution, central vacuum or smarthome technology, give us call today!
Whether you are in the Myrtle Beach area on vacation, or you are a local resident, may we assume you’ve got to eat? As a local B2B as well as B2C business, we see many businesses, inside and out, on a weekly basis. We visit current and new clients and work in their shops, restaurants, attractions and warehouses.
We see it all. New construction and remodels. Start ups and established businesses. We do new installations, updates and upgrades and while we are visiting, our senses are often inundated with the best views and smells!
We’ve been highlighting our current customers on our Facebook Page and we are excited to add our clients to our new blog as well! We’ll be doing this monthly; we are so excited!
Today, we’ll be sharing three local treasures with you, all Strand Security customers and all locally owned and locally operated, just like our business is. So if you are looking for a (new) place to eat in the Myrtle beach area, let us recommend a place for
for you and your loved ones!
Our Senior Sales Representative Corina, has been raving about this place forever. Bagel Cafe in Litchfield is her favorite place to go eat breakfast and we don’t blame her! Look at these yummy treats!
Debbie, owner of Bagel Cafe told us “We’ve had a few security issues and Chuck (Strand Security) was right there and very accommodating. They are excellent on service!”
Before you go, check out their menu online and ‘like’ them on Facebook! Then once you’ve eaten there, let us know how awesome your bagel (or other yummy treat) was.
Up next, we’d like to share anther local gem to go check out for lunch (or dinner!). Pastaria 811 in Pawleys Island offers both authentic Italian lunch and dinner to their patrons and has been for over 18 years! We’ve been lucky enough to eat both meals there and everything is so good, we really can’t recommend one favorite dish.
According to David, owner of Pastaria 811 they have been a Strand Security Systems customer for four years and they like our company much better than the previous company! “Strand is very reliable” says David.
If interested in checking out Pastaria 811, find their menu here.
So where will we send you to dinner? How about some pizza? In Surfside Beach, you’ll find this lovely family-owned pizza place! Lazer’s Pizza sits right on business 17 and customers rave about the italian subs, calzones and of course, the pizza.
We appreciate any and all feedback from our Strand Security customers; and we are especially pleased to hear that we’ve answered the phone each and every time they’ve called us! Customer service is paramount!
We are happy to come to your place of business, or home, to give you an estimate on security as well. We take it seriously and we also strive to give the best customer service, always.
