In 1968, the family-based Cherry Grove, Ocean Drive, Crescent, and Windy Hill Beaches were consolidated into one municipality, gaining a stronger presence with a new name of North Myrtle Beach. Looking back at North Myrtle Beach's underpinnings, Roberts Pavilion (later renamed OD Pavilion), Fat Harold's, and The Pad led the Carolina Shag dancing phenomenon for which Ocean Drive is famous. When Hurricane Hazel struck in 1954, vintage cottages and early guest hotels were replaced by Mid-Century Modern motels with a fresh vibe. North Myrtle Beach's vintage pavilions and fishing piers create a family atmosphere that draws repeat vacationers each year. Its unusually wide strand and excellent fishing have made South Carolina's northern coastline a vacation destination for over a century.
