According to an article posted in myrtle-beach dot com, Mayor Rhodes is floating the idea of shutting down Ocean Boulevard to vehicle traffic from Easter through Labor Day. From the article:
"The Mayor’s vision is to create a walking area much like the downtown area in New Orleans on Bourbon Street.
Rhodes believes the move will increase pedestrian traffic which will lead to more consumer spending in stores along the area where the Myrtle Beach Pavilion once was."
Is it just me or does this sound like a really dumb idea?
