The City of Myrtle Beach has announced a big change that will be coming to downtown Myrtle Beach in the near future. Officials have plans to construct a new Chapin Library as well as a new Children’s Museum in the area of Ninth Avenue North and Nance Plaza.

Properties located in the Superblock area will be purchased by the Downtown Redevelopment Corporation beginning on January 24, 2017. Businesses will be bought out at fair market prices between willing sellers and willing buyers. The DRC will draw from a $10 million line of credit that was established by the City of Myrtle Beach in 2016 for public investment.

Chapin Memorial Library will move from its current location at Chapin Park to the new establishment, and the Children’s Museum of South Carolina (now in partnership with EdVenture), will relocate from its current location on Oak Street near 21st Avenue North, too. The Children’s Museum will be built from the ground up after the old Superblock buildings have been demolished. It is said that the museum will accommodate children with special needs so that all can enjoy the new facility.

Mayor Rhodes stated that these changes are taking place to not only to open these two new modern attractions, but also to bring more life and attract more people to the area.

Right now, no amount of funding has been set for Children’s Museum, but the City Council aims to figure these details out during budget meetings this spring. Below are renderings of the new buildings, but changes will most likely be made and final designs will be developed over the new few months or so.

 - Myrtle Beach, SC

Now that spring weather has arrived on the Grand Strand, along with it comes droves of visitors looking to celebrate the annual rite of passage known as Spring Break. 2017 in Myrtle Beach is a great year to visit, as there are plenty of new things to check out, and as always many of the area’s bars, clubs and nightlife spots are rolling out the red carpet to cater to spring breakers looking for a good time.

Of course, our area has been a haven for bikini-clad partiers for many years, but recently Myrtle Beach has racked up a few endorsements from those in the know. A couple of years ago, DatingAdvice.com listed us #5 on its list of “19 Sexiest Spring Break Destinations” citing places like Hotel Blue among the sexiest places to stay and placing the Grand Strand above popular spring break spots like Daytona Beach and Fort Myers on its list.

Also getting in on the act Coed.com has rated Myrtle Beach #3 on its list of “America’s Top 20 Trashiest Spring Break Destinations.” Although this may sound like a bad thing, when you realize “trashiest” is really just code for “most fun” it’s no wonder or warm water, cheap drinks and selection of activities got us ranked above places like Virginia Beach, Destin and South Padre Island. 

Even the readers of USA Today got in on the fun, by voting Myrtle Beach #1 in the 10 Best Readers’ Choice Poll for “Best Spring Break Destinations.” Recognized by readers for its family-friendly atmosphere — a testament to the fact that the area can be both fun for families and party people — Myrtle Beach beat out nominees such as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,Cancun and Montego Bay, Jamaica.
