||Today Little River is widely known for it s deep-sea fishing, charter boats and commercial fishing. One of the sights of the day is to watch fishing and shrimp boats going out in the early morning for the day's catch, with the sun coming up and mist rising from the calm inlet waters. The Blue Crab Festival in May, on the weekend after Mother's Day, brings thousands of visitors to enjoy the family-oriented events.
Little River remains unincorporated, with a 1990 census count of about 4,000 residents, but it is a fast growing community. A new post office, consolidated schools, golf courses, new homes and condominiums, motels and bed-and-breakfast inns attract new residents. Seafood has always been a drawing card, from the days when the Indians came.
