Welcome to Myrtle Beach!


Here's what's happening...


Orange Box  Halloween is Friday, October 31...  The City of Myrtle Beach does not move the date on which Halloween is celebrated.  Please remember these safety tips when trick-or-treating.

  • Have a responsible adult accompany children.

  • Only visit homes with porch lights on.

  • Always cross streets at intersections and crosswalks.

  • Wear reflective material on costumes.

  • Use makeup instead of masks to improve vision.

  • Make costumes short enough to avoid trip hazards.

  • Use a flashlight to see and be seen.

  • Inspect children’s candy before they eat it.

  • Always be aware of your surroundings!

Orange Box  Golf cart laws...  South Carolina regulates how golf carts may be driven on the public streets.  The complete list of golf cart requirements is available.  Among other things, the cart needs a permit from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as liability insurance.  As before, only licensed drivers, age 16 and older, can drive golf carts on public streets and only during daylight hours. 


Orange Box  New Zoning Code in effect...  After years of work, Myrtle Beach's new Zoning Code is in place.  Developed during more than a hundred public meetings and hearings, the new code has fewer total zones, is better organized and more reader-friendly.  Two new mixed-use districts will help create areas that are more walkable. The Zoning Map is available as a .pdf.  (It's 50 megabytes and takes time to open.)   


Orange Box  Daylight Saving Time...  Remember to set your clocks back one hour ("fall back") when you go to bed Saturday, November 1.  Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m., Sunday, November 2.  It's also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors!  Smoke detectors save lives. 


Orange Box  Memorial Day Bikefest Plan...  The City of Myrtle Beach's draft plan for addressing traffic and other issues arising from the Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest in 2014 was presented at the September 9 Council meeting.  The Bikefest plan includes traffic safety and management solutions. 


Orange Box  Fourth Avenue North Deepwater Ocean Outfall...  Work is underway on a new deepwater ocean outfall at Fourth Avenue North.  Completion is scheduled for November 2015 on this $10.4 million project that will carry rainwater more than 1,000 feet off shore.  A print-on-demand brochure with details about the project and timeline is available on-line.


Orange Box  Seasonal hours...  Dogs and bicycles are allowed on the beach before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.  Dogs and bicycles are allowed on the boardwalk only between 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.  At all times, dogs must be on a leash and you must pick up and properly dispose of droppings.


Orange Box  Police records and statistics...  The Police Department's Police-to-Citizen (P2C) site provides incident reports, arrest records,P2C graphic and link accident reports, crime statistics and more.  Visit the site to learn more about Myrtle Beach police and local law enforcement results.
