When you can afford to live anywhere you want, you have a lot of options from which to choose. One option, however, proves to be an attractive one fairly consistently. Namely, the waterfront property. But why do celebrities (and let’s face it, everyone else) get drawn to these kinds of properties?

The appeal of waterfront homes

Now, this is not going to be a universal rule, but waterfront properties tend to hold a lot of advantages, and whatever disadvantages are usually negated by them. Depending on the location, waterfront homes are going to be more private and exclusive than others. Waterfront areas tend to be relatively off the beaten path, which means that there is less of a chance that a random passerby is going to disrupt the peace and tranquility the celebrity is looking to have on their waterfront property.

There are several kinds of waterfronts that one can look into, and the wants and needs of the celebrity is going to determine which kind of waterfront is to their benefit. For example, it is not at all uncommon to have a home next to a lake. This is great, especially for celebrities who want to have a destination for them and their family in the warmer months. Great for swimming and fishing alike, though watch out for leeches! Meanwhile, riverside property is great for fishing as well, so celebrities who enjoy that kind of game will find themselves fairly pleased with either type of waterfront home.

Finally, oceanfront property is truly off the beaten path, and as such, can fetch a pretty penny. There are Myrtle Beach oceanfront houses for sale (as well as other locations) for a reason: the properties are simply gorgeous. For example, Vanna White, noted Wheel of Fortune co-host, frequently returns to Myrtle Beach, from which she originates.

Myrtle Beach is not just a good place to settle down for celebrities, however. There is a lot of fun stuff to do. For example, if someone is a fan of golfing, there are more than enough opportunities to play. Not only that, but you do not have to worry very much about running out of courses on which to play, with around 90 golf courses to enjoy. For those who enjoy the fine arts, there are a number of shows, ranging from concerts, theater, and hundreds of fine art events.

Of course, if a celebrity were to be looking for a bite to eat, they would have more than enough options available to them. There are some great seafood places to try, such as the Hook & Barrel, but if someone was not as big a fan of seafood, they wouldn’t have to worry — they have more than enough options at their disposal. They could check out Mulan Japanese for some killer Japanese and Vietnamese food, or the Villa Romana Italian Restaurant. One would have to go out of their way to experience the wide variety available.

Whether a person is a celebrity or not, there are more than enough reasons for someone to come to Myrtle Beach, whether it be for a vacation or for life.
