Curfew for juveniles in Myrtle Beach

The City of Myrtle Beach enforces a juvenile curfew. Juveniles (age 17 and under) are required to be off the streets, with few exceptions, between 12:00 and 6:00 a.m. Penalties for violating the curfew can be as much as $500 and/or 30 days in jail, upon conviction. Parents can be charged as well.

Exceptions to the juvenile curfew include when the minor is accompanied by the parent or guardian, involved in an emergency or on an errand necessitated by an emergency, going directly to or from employment, in a vehicle engaged in interstate travel, on the sidewalk abutting the minor's home, attending an adult-supervised recreational activity sponsored by the city or a similar civic organization, exercising protected First Amendment rights or married or otherwise legally emancipated.
