The Waccamaw Neck is located south of Myrtle Beach on the Grand Strand, and just north of the historic seaport of Georgetown. The neck is a historic area that was a major hunting and fishing ground for the prehistoric Waccamaw tribe, followed by rice plantations along the river side, with summer homes for the planters and their families on the coastal side that extended from colonial times to the beginning of the 20th Century.
