This might of been an odd time of day. I don't know. It didn't seem as crowded to me this year, but in no way was it totally empty. I would be interested to see the numbers this year. A lot of people from here at home have started visiting Destin and other Florida destinations . Don't know if it is cheaper or what?

Yeah I'm not sure either. When I Google'd the title of the video a few other items came up stating that the summer tourism started off super slow this year in MB and then this with it ending early. I think it said like 2 million less people were expected? I also read that the Spring season was overly crowded.

Where is this? Maybe all the people went somewhere else.

There was a waiting line backed up almost to Bus. 17 yesterday to get into Myrtle Beach State park, and that only happens during the busy times.

We ate dinner last night on the Boardwalk, and the beaches were crowded, especially around 14tth Ave. Pier.

So..... :dontknow:

I just took this screenshot from the webcam at the Breakers.
Shadows do look like same time of day.
Almost nobody on the beach at 11:15am.
Usually very busy at the Breakers.

A lot of schools started back last week in Kentucky and many others starting this week. Summer break is just not what it used to be in some states.

Maybe it was just schools and the end of the peak season. I'll find out when I get there on Wednesday.
