OK, I'm a tourist, and I'm confused. Ha!

The beginning of the article says that tents and shading devices (including umbrellas) are now banned. But the rest of the article only talks about tents.

Am I correctly understanding that umbrellas are also banned now?
I don't bring either. But I must say that though the huge tents can be annoying, properly placed umbrellas (behind the lifeguards) don't usually cause a problem.

After reading the article, I was coming back to edit my post. I am with you. It sounds like they are banning umbrellas as well. Wow!

This has to be some sort of mis-interpretation by the journalist.... I can't imagine MB would ban normal umbrellas (i.e. less than 9' in diameter like NMB). Then again, I have seen government all levels make boneheaded decisions.

Here is a write-up which states umbrellas are ok:

Quote:
Myrtle Beach on Tuesday became the second Horry County entity to ban tents and all other shading devices, besides umbrellas, on the beach. North Myrtle Beach passed a similar law last week.


Quote:
Council members said even though tents only were banned during a portion of the year in North Myrtle Beach and year-round in Horry County, they wanted to at least remain consistent on the fact that only umbrellas would be allowed.

Ya that article had a lot of contradicting parts. I can't imagine tey would ever band umbrellas. That would be a deal breaker for so many.

The article has been updated. It looks like umbrellas under 7 ft in diameter are still ok.

Maybe my wife can sell our "myrtle beach tent" on ebay....Or I could stake it up in the backyard once a year just to get some use out of my investment.

I sure wouldn't list it as a "Myrtle Beach" tent if you want to sell it :mrgreen:

Here's the latest on the tent bans. This is going to get confusing. The city of Surfside Beach has not weighed in. Garden City falls under the total ban (Horry County) and who knows about Georgetown County which includes areas of Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island.

In a nutshell:

Horry County - Council members voted to ban the use of beach tents in unincorporated areas along the beaches in Horry County on Tuesday. The county is responsible for about 14 miles of beaches along the Grand Strand. The vote bans beach tents measuring more than 7.5 feet in diameter, year round. North Myrtle Beach made the first move towards this decision, by banning tents from May 15 through September 15. The City of Myrtle Beach voted to not allow tents on the beach from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
