Myrtle Beach Speedway is officially eligible for Jr's historic tracks show. He and his crew better get over there fast. Note the unpleasant statement that the same development company is working to get Florence too.

I spent three or four pleasant weekends at MB over the years, esp. in late November.

Have a buddy that lives 3 miles from beach. He went there once. Said it would be excellent location for condos.

The development company isn't after Florence the Myrtle Beach promoters are taking over Florence.

I have spent a lot of time in Myrtle Beach, and if you are going to live on that side of the Intercoastal Waterway, you might as well live in Florence or Conway.

I like Myrtle Beach very much. It's a great low key just chill out and relax kind of place. It's great for the sun, golf, eating out, shopping, and is in fairly close proximity of a lot of fun places to visit. I MUCH prefer it to Florida, and for us mid-westerners, it's a LOT closer. That being said, if you can't be within sight of the ocean, you might as well be FAR inland where real estate is much cheaper and you have some buffer from the hurricanes. Having a condo where Myrtle beach Speedway is, is about like having a basement apartment in the Smoky Mountains.

Budy is retiring in 1.5 years. Moving to Utah. Hate SC with a passion. Too many racist rednecks.

Outer Banks is way better than Myrtle Beach. Lots more to see, do and lots of great non-chain restaurants to choose from with fresh local seafood.

The east coast is ripe with 5 star beach attractions and coastal scenery.

Nearly 200 2-star and 3-star hotels? Plus this architecture? Dirty Myrtle aint it chief.
This is a picture of the wax museum chief, it used to be the NASCAR cafe in its previous life. You know we are a tourist destination, one of the top destinations in the USA.

Murrells Inlet has the same thing.

I find the Banks to be more expensive. At MB, you can get a cheaper room if you’re willing to be 15 or 20 minutes from beach. At the banks, there is no cheaper ‘away from the beach’.

Also, golf. I don’t play but millions do, on dozens of courses, even in the “off season”. As a result, MB is open pretty much year round these days

But it isn’t a tinkling contest. Both have ups and downs.

Lots of good local seafood at MB too, plus, you can always make the short trip up to Calabash, or go to Harrelson's Seafood Market, make a purchase, and cook it yourself. I don't eat them, but their crab cakes are nationally famous. Off season motel rooms (on the beach) are dirt cheap at Myrtle Beach. If you are looking for more to do, Charleston, Wilmington, Darlington, Charlotte, Hilton Head and Savannah are ALL within day trip distance. My wife and I were supposed to celebrate our 30th anniversary down there this October with two other couples, but my wife's health issues and the virus fiasco have postponed that plan for a year.

I blame Senior Frogs
Next time go to Burro Loco, it's much better. As far as chains go, Abuelo's is a better choice than Senor Frog's. Both are near the major US-501 / US-17 interchange.

EDIT: crap, just learned Burro Loco has closed. That's unusual for the regional restaurant group that managed it; they don't often have to close a shop.

No Charleston is way better than Myrtle. Haha I like Murrels Inlet, but Charleston and it’s 5 beach towns are the bomb
