We are not residents of Myrtle Beach, but we stopped going to Myrtle Beach about 10 years ago.
My comment revolves around the myth that it is family-friendly. Between the “adult” stores and clubs, the open intoxication and the foul language and behavior of “innocent victims of social inequity,” we learned that this is no place for us or our kids.
We have been spending our summer tourist dollars at Hilton Head, Tybee Island, Emerald Isle, and various places on the Outer Banks. We are not alone and know of many families who also refuse to vacation at Myrtle Beach.
This latest incident and video only solidifies our beliefs, regardless of what your mayor says and the TV commercials.
If and when Myrtle Beach decides to become middle-class friendly, give us a call. Until then, good luck with the demographic groups you cater to.
