If you are coming to the beach from May 15th to September 15th, don’t worry about packing the big pop-up tents and canopies. The City of North Myrtle Beach just passed a ban on these devices during the summer months and shoulder season for what they claim is safety reasons. I can see where it could be a problem, but it seems a better solution that requires a 10 foot space between each tent would have been better.
You can still have an umbrella up to 9 feet in diameter. It may look like Umbrella City out there on the beaches of the Grand Strand this SUMMER!
