Wow there are some really terrible areas in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!
For this video, I took Route 17 south into the city of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The goal would be to check out the worst parts of this beach community, areas that I had heard a lot about in the past. It was partly cloudy, but warm on a Monday, January 4, 2021 at about 10 am.
We’re going to check out two areas in Myrtle Beach that are the most run down of all. one area is closer to downtown and the second area – probably the worst area – is down by the airport.
We’re going to an area close to downtown. This little neighborhood is pretty rundown, and is only a mile from the main drag with all the rides and museums and restaurants and hotels..
Now, recently, Myrtle Beach was named as the third most dangerous place you can live in the entire NATION. Much of that is because of the large number of people who are into drugs, and a lot of the crime is also associated with the tourist season. Lots of people who flock here from out of town cause problems, shoot people and get into trouble. And, locals prey on the tourists who come into town as well. Property crimes are a huge headache every summer.
Others have blamed the crime on the rise in the cost of living here, as wages haven’t kept up with the cost to rent a home, for example.
Myrtle Beach used to be an awesome place to bring the family down, but Myrtle Beach now has an image problem, as word is out about the rise in crime here, so less families come here for their vacations.
However, the main drag is still very pretty and there are a lot of fun things to do. I highlight the Myrtle Beach strip in another video.
Finally, we’ll go to the worst neighborhood I was able to find. It’s way down near the airport on the south end of town, about two miles from the main drag.
