Local News - Summer 2010

Festivals cranking up; temps heating up as crowds descend on the Strand

It's that time of year again when the really fun festivals like Blue Crab and Sun Fun bring in thousands of visitors to the Strand. All around the country, lots of people have lost jobs, or families have reduced incomes, higher debt, and banks seem less likely to loan money to those in need -- yet people are still driving and flying to the Myrtle Beach area for a little escape from the struggles of and chaos of daily life.

Our best advice to local hoteliers, restaurants, attractions, golf courses, and amusements:
Lower your prices so more people can enjoy themselves.
Myrtle Beach, previously one of the most economic places to take the family on vacation, has become so overpriced it's downright ridiculous. The greed that overbuilt and overpriced Myrtle Beach has got to go!

North Myrtle Beach failed to court Harley owners group

Two local businessmen, Harold Worley and Mark Lazarus, attempted to bring a new motorcycle event to the Main Street area in May 2010.

In the wake of Myrtle Beach residents' opposition to May bike rallies last year, support for the controversial gathering was debated by North Myrtle Beach residents, business owners, and city and chamber officials.

In the end, the Harley group itself backed out of the event.

Motorcycle Rallies under new restrictions

All eyes, as well as lawsuits, were on the City of Myrtle Beach for banning May motorcycle events by implementing multiple restrictions to two-wheeled motorists.

Per multiple requests from residents, the City of Myrtle Beach voted to not allow the rallies within its city limits, with Horry County Council following suit by passing additional restrictions county-wide.

As motorcylists boycotted the area, and most visitors equate Myrtle Beach with the entire Grand Strand, what will happen in the years ahead in the cities surrounding Myrtle Beach remains to be seen.
