It is always fun driving through Myrtle Beach; there are so many sights, attractions, and interesting people that grace our city. But what happens when you want to pull over and get out of your car? Parking can be an issue in the city and, if you are not a city resident of Myrtle Beach and don’t have a free parking pass, parking meters and lots can be quite pricey. Oftentimes, though we would love to enjoy the entertainment available, our pockets are empty and there is no change to spare for the parking meter.

You’re in luck. We have a full list of parking meters and rates throughout Myrtle Beach. This way, you are able to check out the places to park close to your desired destination, as well as how much it will cost in advance. Good idea, huh?

Keep in mind that some meters (marked with green stickers) are available for all-day parking while others (marked with red stickers) have time constraints.

Also, if you have a valid handicapped, Purple Heart, Disabled American Veterans or Medal of Honor license tag or an official handicapped hang tag, then you are able to park for free at any public parking meter in the state of South Carolina.

Thanks to technology, you may also pay for parking using a mobile app. The Parkmobile service allows you to pay for your parking meter with a credit card through your phone. This app is free, and your meter time gets charge to your credit card. Just pay a small amount of 35-cents per use. You can sign up for the Parkmobile service by visiting www.parkmobile.com or by calling 877-727-5714.
