It's about that time of the year when residents and tourists pack their cars and flock to the beach for a day of fun in the sun.

Similar to other beach communities, Myrtle Beach has a specific list of beach rules and regulations for visitors to follow. The city has passed several ordinances over the years that aim to protect all beach-goers and preserve the shores, and those who violate beach laws are subject to a fine of up to $500 and/or 30 days in jail, upon conviction.

Here is some helpful information as you prepare for your visit to Myrtle Beach.
