I can't help but compare the two; Myrtle Beach and Atlantic City. Although there are many similarities, there are also significant differences. Atlantic City has an edge, sharp corners and an attitude. Myrtle Beach is laid back with female curves and a Sunday ease of contentment.
Myrtle Beach, although technically a man made island separated by the intracostal waterway, is centrally located on a continuous stretch of beach known as the Grand Strand that goes on for miles. I walked on the beach for well over an hour (one way) and still there was a runway of sand equal to the Qamdo Bamda Airport.
Beachcombers dot the sand and each has a unique contraption to scoop up treasures.
