Kim Teeter of Greensboro, N.C., holds her 8-month-old granddaughter Mary Katherine Parham in the shade of a beach tent July 22, 2010, at the beach near Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. "Without this beach tent and because of the baby," said Parham, "we couldn't hang out here at the beach all day. The tent makes that possible." As some cities like North Myrtle Beach prepare to ban beach tents, others, like Myrtle Beach, say they have no problems because they have always had strict rules in place to keep the tents from blocking lifeguards and other emergency personnel.
