Sister Cities Program
Myrtle Beach has four sister cities and is part of the International Sister Cities Association. We have an active chapter that meets regularly. Delegations from Myrtle Beach periodically travel to our sister cities, and we occasionally host visitors from them. For more information, contact City Clerk Jennifer Stanford at 843-918-1004.
