That last shot is great !
Awesome pics, Marc! I have to agree with DruidCity though...I think the last one is the best.
So any shots of those towers on the beach?
My uncle had a condo in Myrtle Beach and was always trying to get me to go with him on trips; sadly I always said no.
DUMBASS I am.
Really nice Marc! Need to get the family down there sometime this year. I wonder how the density of the people in Myrtle Beach compares to other cities. Looks very urban in those photos.
Well, this urbanity is about 2 blocks wide. Once you get back from the beach there is significantly less dense development.
Infact Myrtle Beach has alot of sprawlish development. They are working on completing the Coastal Grand Mall. It will be the largest mall in SC.
Costal Grand Mall Discussion
The first pictures of the shopping area that is on piers is called the Boardwalk (I think), and it is a very large shopping center that is built around a man made tidal pool that is connected to the Intracoastal Waterway. It has all that stuff in one area (the Hard Rock, the IMAX, miniature golf, etc.). Its an interesting thing to see.
I guess my point is that I don't qualitfy Myrtle Beach as dense.
Its more of a faux-density (or something).
(Nice pics by the way)
There is nothing like a beautiful Myrtle Beach sunrise. I used to watch them every morning from our condo
It doesn't really fit in this thread, but I saw on the news where the Miracle Strip Amusement Park in Panama City Beach, a place with some parallels to Myrtle Beach, is closing after being a fixture for over 40 years, because the land was worth more for general development (probably condos).
Also, I'll mention that when I took a short beach trip last year (Gulf Shores,AL), it was really neat watching a dolphin from my hotel room balcony.
These people are sitting there just to watch the beach as they would to watch a movie
Last summer when I was there there was a lot of planning going on to revamp that area. That's of course why you see all of the freshly planted palmettos that line the streets. I also saw where the're going to replace the concrete with pavers. I think Myrtle beach may be in search of a downtown and they know that this area is there best bet. I wouldn't be suprised if the city puts a lot of investment behind this area to both preserve its current character and also improve the "downtown Myrtle Beach" urban feeling.
more great shots! this one seems to show the newer side of myrtle as opposed to the 1st thread
