A Message from Jim Parker

We’re welcoming spring here at the Coastal Insider. And along with it, some new ideas about how we can better serve our community through our publication. We are currently formulating the addition of an Entertainment and Attraction section to our paper, so that everyone in our community is kept abreast of the multitude of things to do here. This section will appeal to all our readers— providing tourists, locals, and seasonal residents information about where to go and what to see when they’re looking for a fun day or night out on the town. Keeping the public informed not only helps our local economy, it also brings added joy to those who take advantage of the entertainment Myrtle Beach has to offer. We feel this is information that the community would like to be kept up-to-date-on; so in the coming months, be sure to refer to the front page of the paper to see where we’ve placed this new section inside. And as always, we’d love to hear your feedback about what you want to see.

This month, we’re celebrating the Coastal Highland Games in Myrtle Beach— a festival of Scottish and Celtic heritage that is thousands of years old. It’s good to see that the tradition of holding this festival in the Grand Strand area continues today. It’s a unique festival rich in culture, sports, music, food, entertainment, and community, and an event that locals and tourists look forward to experiencing− drawing crowds by the thousands. The general public is even welcome to sign up to participate in the athletic events. Be sure to read the full article on the front page for all the details. We’re looking forward to it being here.
