No trip to Conway would be complete without a stroll on the city's River Walk.¬† The River Walk connects the historic downtown business district to the scenic Waccamaw River.¬† The trail begins under the Main Street bridge and ends at the beautiful riverfront park and marina complex.¬† Along your walk you see wonderful historic buildings, the Conway Arboretum, playground, marina,¬† riverside gazebo, and a few more things we'll let you discover on your own.
Take a step back in time and experience life on a small farm in Horry County 100 years ago.¬† The Horry County Museum has recreated a "one horse family farm" of the early 1900's.¬†¬† This working farm will allow you to watch as well as participate in the daily farm activities of times gone by.

For some people the city's river walk just isn't close enough to the water.¬† If you are one of those people, I suggest that you give the folks at Conway Kayak Company a call.¬† They offer professionally guided kayak tours of the scenic Waccamaw River.¬† The tours are scheduled for 3 hours and cater to beginners and first time paddlers. ¬†
