For the second year in a row, the Myrtle Beach area was the most moved-to place in the United States, according to PODS Moving and Storage.

Along with Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, North Carolina, six other cities in the Carolinas made the top 20 list for 2024, showing that South Carolina and North Carolina are becoming hot destinations. Top areas include Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Charlotte, North Carolina.

A lower cost of living, access to nature and a good quality of life are drawing people into the Southern states, PODS wrote in a press release. Weather is milder, but there’s still four seasons and there is proximity to both mountains and the ocean within the Carolinas.

There’s been a larger trend of people moving to Southern Appalachian region, with Tennessee and Georgia cities also making the top 20, according to PODS.

The Myrtle Beach area has seen a tremendous amount of growth, with the population increasing by around 47% from 2010 to 2023 for the city of Myrtle Beach and Horry County, according to Census data.
