By the end of this month two new cameras near the boulevard will be broadcasting live on the world wide web, with hope of helping to promote tourism.
The Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation will be installing two webcams at the tune of $8,000 dollars. WMBF News spoke with some residents who were both for and agienst this project. Some citing the cost others citing the potential for potential tourists to take a peek at downtown Myrtle Beach from the comfort of their home and may help make them decide to book that trip to The Grand Strand.
A neat idea and pretty forward thinking, however the $8,000 price tag seems a bit too high for two webcams. Hop on over to WMBF News to read the full wirte-up and watch their broadcast.
We have several webcams in Myrtle Beach. There's the handy SCDOT traffic cams and the recently installed Guy Daniels SurfOff Cam as well as a few others. FunBeaches.com has a comprehensive and up-to-date list. SCIWAY also has a full state list of webcams including Myrtle Beach.
