Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) February 27, 2005
Springmaid Pier, which was named Myrtle Beach's "Best Fishing Pier" for 2004 by subscribers to the Myrtle Beach Herald as well as "Best of the Beach" for several years by Sun News readers, will reopen March 1; a new admission policy will go into effect at that time. Resort guests will continue to have free access to the pier, while non-resort guests will be charged $1.00 for all day access.
The Springmaid Pier is a local landmark and is one of the oldest and longest piers along the Grand Strand. With newly completed renovations, the quality of the pier has been improved both structurally and aesthetically. The newly remodeled tackle shop has been expanded to include a gift shop that offers a variety of family fun items and vacation souvenirs.
"We're very proud of our pier," said Toby Beckham, Pier Manager. "It measures 1,060 feet, and you can get a great view of the entire length of the Grand Strand from the end of the pier. It's a great place for families to spend the day with each other while enjoying all that the pier offers. We're just delighted that others along the Grand Strand hold it in such high esteem."
