Travel Journal Says Avoid Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is featured in TheDiscoverer.com’s latest publication as one of “5 Beaches To Avoid”. The article titled, 5 U.S. Beaches to Visit and 5 to Avoid, can be found here: https://blog.thediscoverer.com/5-us-beaches-to-visit-and-5-to-avoid/

Says travel writer, Jim Stewart, Myrtle Beach used to be the gem of South Carolina beaches. It was clean and not nearly as crowded and overdeveloped as it has become. In fact, last year Myrtle Beach drew a whopping 17 million visitors to its shores for fun and sun. However, amusement parks, hundreds of hotels and thousands of restaurants have made this one-time haven for family vacations a nightmare. The waters off Myrtle Beach have also repeatedly tested positive for high levels of bacteria in the past few years. If you have to vacation on the shores of South Carolina, take our advice and head south to Litchfield.

The Publishers of TheDiscoverer.com state that they created the publication to inspire people to explore Earth’s most incredible destinations, whether that means grabbing a suitcase and heading out on a new journey, or simply reading a story about an exotic location while curled up at home.

The publication also states that each edition features insight from genuine discoverers in “our” community and allows you to escape from your daily routine for a few minutes to experience something new.
