Starting in late May, The Market Common will bring their history tours back for a safe and fun experience
May will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. Locals and visitors alike loved learning about Myrtle Beach’s significant role in the war during the sold-out history trolley tours that took place in January and February, but were suspended in March due to the current health crisis.
Starting May 18 and running through May 30, The Market Common will bring this same history you love in a safe way with Myrtle Beach Car Phone Tours. The 11 a.m. tour will be Early Myrtle Beach & The War Years, which will share stories of the town’s earliest days and the time during WWII and arrival of German POWS. The 2 p.m. tours, Myrtle Beach History, Movies & Music, will tell of the town’s coming of age in the mid-twentieth century to present day, movies that were made or premiered in Myrtle Beach and the significance of music in our local history.
Ticket holders will be called on the date and time of their tour. They and their passengers may meet the tour in their car at four different historical Myrtle Beach locations. Tour-goers will remain in their cars throughout the 90-minute tour and will receive four calls, one from each location. A family can drive the tour on one call, while out-of-town grandparents can experience the fun history with them while on another call. Even if people cannot visit the beach right now, they can learn about the compelling history of their favorite vacation destination.
Tours are $25 per ticket and available at Eventbrite.com. One ticket is good for the four calls, regardless of the number of people who can hear the call. Tours meet at The Market Common and addresses and directions of historic sites are sent to the ticket holder. For more info, email MyrtleBeachHistoryTours@gmail.com. Eventbrite ticket links are also posted on Facebook at @MyrtleBeachHistoryTours.
