Tourist destination

Bikers should be welcomed

I hope the people of Atlantic Beach and North Myrtle Beach will continue to warmly welcome visitors to black bike week. It's good for rental property owners, grocery stores, restaurants and other businesses. We are a tourist destination and we all need to make all of our visitors feel welcome and appreciated.

Families were back on the beach

I live in the Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach.

A visiting friend and I walked from Main Street to the Cherry Grove Pier and back on May 30 and we saw families: Moms, dad, kids, grandparents and grandchildren, all having a great time on the beach.

Families of all colors and nationalities speaking several different languages, but quite simply the most families either of us has seen here in many years.

I'm not sure of the political implications or the financial impact, but in our minds, this is what Memorial Day at the beach is all about, and we were so happy to see it.
