Update March 1, 2013: It's that time of year again (to update this story!)...

Parking is no longer free along the streets of Myrtle Beach starting today. But at least from now on we won't have to worry about having correct change anymore.

Update March 1, 2012:  Just a friendly reminder that parking meter enforcement starts today in the city of Myrtle Beach.

So make sure to stop by the bank and exchange that $10 bill for a nice roll of shiny quarters, because it'll cost you more to park this year


First Report February 27th: We have many seasons beyond the traditional four here in Myrtle Beach.  There's tourist season, hurricane season, and Spring Break season.  Get ready for the start of another - parking meter season.

Beginning on March 1, 2012, the City of Myrtle Beach will have their meters up, running, and expecting to be fed.  The meters are in operation from 9 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, through September 30.  The fee for not paying the price to park starts at $20 and escalates while the ticket remains unpaid. 

If you happen to find yourself parking at a meter without the appropriate amount of change, you can call 626-PARK (626-7275), and the City will send out one of their ambassadors to assist you.  You can also use the ParkMobile option, which uses your cell phone and a credit card to avoid a ticket. 

For more information, have a look at the City of Myrtle Beach's parking meter page
