Two-year parking decals available for Myrtle Beach residents

JANUARY 4, 2023

New, two-year parking decals are available now to Myrtle Beach city residents who have personal vehicles that “live” in the city limits and on which city property taxes have been paid. The decals grant free parking at city-owned parking meters and are valid for the 2023 and 2024 calendar years. The city counts vehicle property taxes as a parking payment, whether or not the owner ever uses a metered space. Everyone pays for parking, just in different ways.

To receive a parking decal, residents will need the South Carolina vehicle registration card, their driver’s license and the current Horry County vehicle property tax receipt for each vehicle. For online registration, visit the Parking Decal webpage at and follow the steps. Residents who have not had a parking decal in the past will need to apply in person. Submit in-person requests at the Reef Parking Office in the Pavilion Parking Garage, 914 North Kings Highway, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Each parking decal is specific to each vehicle; decals are not interchangeable or transferrable. After processing, parking decals are mailed to the registered address. Residents who own a qualifying golf cart will need to bring the South Carolina Golf Cart permit number issued by the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV).

The paid parking season is March 1 through October 31. New residential parking decals are valid through December 31, 2024. In addition to free parking at on-street meters and pay stations, decals also grant free parking at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Replacement decals, due to failure to remove the decal upon windshield replacement or sale of the vehicle, are $20.00 each. Limited parking decals for non-residents are available for purchase.
