Approved by Horry County to be developed as a self-contained community, Carolina Forest is being carved out of over 12,000 acres of beautiful forest land. As a preplanned community, all of the infrastructure, platting etc was done in advance so that it was known where schools would be, grocery stores, hospitals and so on. All of the development that has been done and all ongoing development is done in consideration of preserving the precious wildlife indigenous to the region. The design of Carolina Forest also encompasses several area golf courses including Man O’War, The Wizard, The Witch, and many more nearby.
Known throughout the region for having the best schools in the state, Carolina Forest is also located close to all of the great attractions of the Grand Strand and is only ten miles from the famous beaches of South Carolina. Indeed, there are many who rarely leave the community as it does have everything one needs including shopping, restaurants, schools etc.
