Happy Birthday Myrtle Beach! It's a place where millions get away for a vacation. For all of us who call the area home, we're the lucky ones.
Living here is fantastic, but in a country more than 230 years old, our community is very young and that means we struggle with growing pains. There is no traditional central business district, a unique downtown to revitalize like most cities. Zoning has improved, but lack of restrictions in the past impact much of the progress. We don't have interstate access to help in recruiting industry and more visitors. And the biggest issue, infrastructure, is expensive and the city struggles to keep up with the growth. But there are still lots of reasons to celebrate.
This week WMBF News continues our In Your Community series focusing on the evolution of Myrtle Beach over the past 75 years. We've uncovered some great stories that you should enjoy.
Happy Anniversary Myrtle Beach; there's no doubt the next 75 will be even better. Cheers!
