Main Street North Myrtle Beach Parking
Incoming visitors to North Myrtle Beach should take note of new regulations in place regarding beach parking. A new proposal hopes to conquer longstanding parking shortages, making beach access easier for both residents and vacationing families. The proposed plan will include the use of transportation shuttles and 212 new parking spaces created by extending existing lots between 4th Avenue North and Sea Mountain Highway. The current “trial run” for the beach shuttle invites visitors to park at Ocean Drive Elementary school where a shuttle provides transport to Main Street and Ocean Boulevard.
As of June 15, all public parking lots on Ocean Boulevard will begin charging $2 per hour that is payable via a user-friendly mobile app. Parking will no longer be allowed along the medians on Ocean Boulevard.
Where Main Street meets Ocean Drive, you’ll find free parking, but during peak periods, availability can be low. Just off Main Street, you can also check for availability on 1st Avenue (North and South) or anywhere from 3rd through 10th Avenues (North). If you choose to take your exploring further, Main Street is nearly equidistant from Cherry Grove Beach to the north and Crescent Beach to the south – approximately three miles either way. Additional parking options are available in these locations.
THE CULTURE OF MAIN STREET
North Myrtle Beach is the destination for family-friendly vacations along the South Carolina coast, and Main Street is at the center of it all. Home to an array of restaurants and shops, as well as innovative attractions like Break Out Myrtle Beach Escape Rooms and popular annual events like Mayfest on Main and the Music on Main Concert Series, Main Street connects to the hub of North Myrtle Beach – Ocean Drive.
This vibrant one-mile strip of the Carolina Coast is the birthplace of the Carolina Shag and music has long been at the core of its culture. Though the 1980s saw a decade of change for Main Street, the vibe stayed the same, with an overhaul to longstanding businesses that either updated or made way for newcomers, while keeping hold on the tradition and history that makes the area so unique.
Today’s Main Street is a lively host to souvenir shops peddling Carolina treasures, restaurants serving up the freshest seafood and classic Southern comfort food, dance clubs teaching Shag steps, and bars pouring the coolest brews. In all of the transition, Main Street remains true to its roots, explaining why it was recently named one of the “23 Best Small Town Main Streets in America” by County Living.
