The Benefits of International Drive
After much anticipation and 12 years after voters approved funding for the project, International Drive opened on July 25th, 2018!
Recently opened, International Drive connects Highway 90 in Conway, SC with the Carolina Forest area of Myrtle Beach. This allows local residents of Highway 90 the benefit of bypassing the traffic jams of Highway 501 when traveling to the beach. Motorists can expect to save anywhere from 10-20 minutes of traveling time.
Homeowners, in and around Highway 90, have started to see another huge benefit as well. The opening of International Drive has led to new development; which, in return, has led to an increase in home values. This increase in home values is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
Local and national builders have also noticed the growing demand for homes in the Highway 90 area and are offering the public many new floor plans to choose from. Home buyers searching in the Highway 90 area can find new construction for sale starting in the low $160’s.
Now that Highway 90 residents can escape the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach tourism while enjoying the convenience of being so close to shopping, dining, health care, and other area attractions, it is easy to see why the Highway 90 area is quickly becoming a popular destination among first time home buyers and retirees.
