The joys of gay life need not stop at age 40 or 60 or even 80. Prime Timers of Myrtle Beach is part of Prime Timers Worldwide, an organization that provides mature gay and bisexual men with social, educational, and recreational activities in a supportive atmosphere. We are the first Prime Timers chapter in South Carolina, and it also includes participants from southeastern North Carolina.

Picnic 2015Mild winters, 100 miles of beaches, 87 golf courses, and unlimited cultural and recreational opportunities make the Myrtle Beach area a popular destination for vacationers, snowbirds, and retirees. But moving away from your friends and family and the professionals you trust can be scary. It's difficult to start over from scratch. We understand because most of us have been through it.

Whether you are here for a week, a winter, or a lifetime, Prime Timers offers you a welcoming circle of friends who share your life experiences and who want to help enhance your enjoyment of life on the Grand Strand and the Brunswick Islands.
In addition to the regular membership we offer an associate membership if you are unable to attend a majority of the meetings because of distance traveled, physical limitations, or job responsibilities.
