    Visit in September
    There is a vendor market on Saturdays, during the month of September there is an evening of wonderful jazz music. Given the history of Charley’s place, I highly recommend it. Check their face book page and you can send and get responses to questions

    Worth a visit!
    Some really interesting local black music history! Definitely worth a visit, call to arrange a donation based tour! I was also able to buy some lovely jewelry from one of the businesses at their business incubator.

    I enjoyed the tour!! I found all of it to be fascinating!!! It is amazing the things Mr. Charlie accomplished and provided to the area. Just to know how the shag dance got started was exciting!! The staff went there and beyond to make our trip worthwhile!!! Highly recommended!!

    Take the tour, you’ll love it.
    This is a historical location you should visit. Mr Matthias has a wealth of knowledge you’d enjoy hearing. The place is preserved well and you’ll have the opportunity to see where black entertainers stayed during their visits to Myrtle Beach and other artifacts that will make you feel as though you were there during that era.

Charlies Place has an amazing story! Every school age child should know this story! I was lucky enough to meet Mary Riley who along with her husband Herbert had a vision to restore this historic place and help youth in their community have an opportunity to start a business. We visited the rooms to see where people stayed while visiting Myrtle Beach during segregation. As a listing in “The Green Book” many African Americans stayed there… and Mary has some amazing stories and is an extraordinary woman! I highly recommend this hidden gem!

I found this place through the Chamber of Commerce. Thought this would be a good attraction to take the grandkids for a great look at past history. They have done a great job restoring the property. Opened in 1937 as a supper club/motel. Oral tradition says that "The Shag" a form of southern swing dancing originated here.
