Default Why does everyone knock Myrtle Beach?

I work with a lot of guys and it seems like a lot of people on here take every chance to bash Myrtle anytime someone mentions it. Hey I get it, it's not Charleston, or Hilton Head but in my opinion it is nicer, with more to do than Daytona. It isn't overly expensive in my opinion and my kids absolutely love going there. So is there something I am missing?

People bash it because it is a shit hole tourist trap. There is a reason that people that actually live in SC do not frequent the redneck riviera.

It's overrun with outsiders. Sure there are a lot of things to do but it's there's an abundance of trashy people who have taken over the city.

Does it suck with the tourists? Sure. But hell, I get to live where millions of people save for a year to vacation. I get my choice of 100s of golf courses, 100s of restaurants, ton of shopping, great nightlife, and many many beach spots that aren't in the tourist spot light. Most places give me a local discount as well. I don't mind living here. I can handle a few months of tourist for all the rest of the positives.

It's the people that visit that make it bad. Also it's overly cheesy and a tourist trap.

Used to live there and I'm not a fan. It has some nice attractions but overall I don't like it.

I also HATE how there's only one way to get everywhere. Highway 17, business or bypass. That's it.

Tourist trap, number of "trashy" people that go there for their "HUGE" vacation, the problems that happen down there every summer with the trash that goes, the amount of traffic, the fact that people from other states make it out to be a place you have to see. Last time I was down there was for a wrestling tournament, never saw the beach, but saw plenty of trashy people with out of state tags.

Edit: The only time I go now is the "offseason", when all the tourist go back up north. Not nearly as bad in the winter months.

It used to be a good place to go, but became really trashy about 10+ years ago. The Pavilion area used to be fun, but now it's full of rednecks and wanna be thugs. And it seems like foreigners run most of the stores nowadays....like the Wings that are every 5 feet.

There is Broadway at the Beach and some good restaurants, but MB isn't where I want to vacation.

MB beach gets a bad rap just because of Ocean Blvd. Always have stayed farther down the coast garden city or pawleys

Shopping? Outlet malls and beach paraphernalia.
Restaurants? Mostly chains or "calabash buffets"

No thanks.

Will agree there is a ton of stuff to do though

And if that's all you look for then that is all you will find. I do go to the outlets because I can get good deals but I also shop at many locally owned and operated stores, just like many of you do in other towns. Same as restaurants. I make it a point not to go to chains or calabash joints. See my post regarding where to eat in MB.

I love how everyone gets all high and mighty about how trashy MB is but the number one smack against UNC is how high and mighty their fans are. I don't know anyone else in MB that talks crap about any other city in SC, despite the fact that lots of cities have their negative sides. For example, the comment about the old pavilion site being a thug spot. From what I hear, that's what five points is now, yes? I guess Columbia is trashy then.

You all act like MB has personally offended you.

Default Re: Why does everyone knock Myrtle Beach?

To add to what I said earlier...

Me and a buddy of mine walked down Ocean Boulevard on a Saturday night during the summer and the area was packed with people ages 15-30, 90% of whom were wearing wifebeaters. Hell, even saw small children with their "parents" at 11-12 at night with all this craziness going on. Rednecks were riding down the street blaring some obscure redneck country music with confederate flags flying while thugs were driving down the street and literally abducting girls. It was all yankees, thugs, and rednecks.

I even got made fun of for wearing your typical polo with shorts and flip flops.

Other than that, there's plenty of nice bars and decent restaurants around town. And of course the golf is great. Even the beach is pretty nice when it's not over run with people. Spent a week in North Myrtle and had a better time there.

I have nothing against the city of Myrtle Beach, it was a place I liked to go in the past, but now I don't want to spend a vacation dealing with the craziness down there. But, I don't go to most of the places that are tourist places, I head to the woods for vacation with a backpack and stuff to last me a week or so. I look at Pigeon Forge the same way, just to much of a mecca for tourist for me.

I'm with you man. I love Myrtle! We camp at Pirateland Family Campground in Surfside. We go and hit up a few of the many great restaurants, golf, go to Broadway, Bass Pro, etc. We even like to go down to ocean blvd to take in the sights. The new boardwalk is beautiful. Try and avoid at night because we have little ones and it can get out of hand down there when the sun goes down.

It's almost like people loved Myrtle before it got popular then it became "cool" to trash it once it became a national destination. Reminds me of Metallica fans who loved the band until they got famous. How dare they!

Myrtle has good and bad. I stay around surfside and murrells a few times a year and I enjoy it. If you go down the strip then you're asking to deal with some mess.
