I didn't really know any other way to explain in the subject line of what im trying to ask,lol, so hopefully someone will know what im talking about. Does anyone know the laws concerning passing out Gospel tracts and verbally sharing the Gospel with people when it comes to the main strip? Or even on the beaches?

I found this under the Myrtle Beach Ordinances

Sec. 5-15. Solicitation on beaches.
(a) Findings. The council of the city has made the following findings:
(1) That the public beach is a public area which is open and accessible to all persons;
(2) That the public beach is maintained and subjected to reasonable regulation by the city in order to promote the health, safety, welfare and morals of all persons using the beach;
(3) That the public beach provides a unique area for all persons to pursue peaceful relaxation and quiet enjoyment in a reasonable manner;
(4) That the public beach has been and continues to be a unique public recreation area, different in respect to all other public areas within the municipality;
(5) That it is desirable and necessary to preserve the unique nature of the public beaches and to protect all persons who utilize the beaches from undue annoyance, disturbance and inconvenience.
(b) Certain activities on beaches prohibited. It shall be unlawful for any person, organization, society, association or corporation, or any agent, member or representative thereof, directly or indirectly, to solicit property, business or financial assistance of any kind, to distribute free product samples, admission passes, or entry tickets, to conduct any sales or rental business, to sell or offer to sell any article, good, publication, subscription or other thing of value, in the area previously defined in this chapter as the public beach.
(c) Exceptions. This section shall not apply to the operation of water safety franchises granted by the council for the purpose of ensuring lifeguard services on the beach.

I'm not sure either,but I assume you are part of a non-profit organization. I have seen young people on the beach, carrying bibles, and talking with people who were receptive to their approach. Your best bet would e to e-mail the city and ask:

Good luck!
