My second visit to Conway

My husband and I wrapped up an uneventful work week in Charleston. We made our way back to Bennettsville via Conway, SC again (for another look).Going up I-95 one more time is monotonous to say the least. Hwy 17 is a good alternative. This time we stayed at one of the three B&Bs in the area. Selected for its smaller size and quaint atmosphere we couldn't have been more pleased. The Innkeepers Harry and Cathy Pinner at the Moore Farm House B&B were super hosts, we had a pleasant and restful stay, and breakfast was wonderful.

At this point we were getting excited at the prospects of finding a place to call home and to get away from our present location. JP and I had been looking for the past 2 years for a quaint historic town to purchase a 2nd home. This summer we explored the mountains. Taking us to Asheville and Hendersonville, NC. We spent the summer renting a place in Lake Lure, NC but ultimately decided the mountains were too far from family and friends. So now our focus will be coastal SC area between JP's kids and my family. Also we did not want to be too far from his parents in Laurinburg, NC.

Doing a Google search one evening my husband entered: "Top small town College towns." and we were shocked to find Conway, SC was 10th on the list. The list is featured on: Conway specifically on this page:

As it turns out Coastal Carolina University is a rapidly growing college and is financially quite stable despite the economy. The town of Conway had recently seen a downtown revitalization of business, restaurants and shops. The River Walk Park was nicely put together and makes a fine attraction. So far so good.
