Efforts to redevelop The Myrtle Beach Pavilion Amusement Park have hit roadblocks as city leaders and the Pavilion owner question the California developer picked to create the plan. Questions were raised Thursday by local leaders about the developer's financial status, and complaints surfaced that the project is not moving as quickly as expected.

Maybe they will realize that Myrtle Beach has enough "shops, restaurants, and attractions" already.

Sleazy motels huh? Man, I had no idea. It's been a long time since I have been down there.
The Ocean side of Ocean Blvd is high rise nice hotels, it's the sleazy motels on the Pavilion side, as well as the sleazy beach shops that need to go. With vulgar shirts and items in the windows and such, no parent wants to take the kids to see that. But the Pavilion never has a bad season.
If they'd clean up the store fronts and turn that into the Saks and higher end shops, as well as tear down some of the trasy motels and build amphatheaters and other attractions, and just clean it up and keep the Pavilion open at least on the weekends later in the year, it would be much better. The reason Down Town isn't a year round thing is because no one has ever tried staying open year round down there save for Ripley's and a couple shops. Even Peach's Corner closes up (I think).
Stupid Stupid Stupid!
The Family Kingdom is farther down and has not got the sleaze and trash to deal with, and when I was down there in Sept., it was open during the week and packed with families and young married couples. If they could do it as small as they are, Pavilion could too with more offerings on that part of the Blvd.
