Myrtle Beach,SC – Coastal Carolina’s Center for Tourism expects an increase in occupancy when compared to last year. That increase is expected to be between three and five percent. This numbers might not be astonishing but the Grand Strand has nearly 110,000 rooms to rent meaning thousands of additional visitors. The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce has taken a few steps to influence these numbers including the tourism tax. It goes to show in this current economy that a little can go a long way.
