During Black History Month, Tuesday is “Tour Day” at Charlie’s Place in Myrtle Beach.

Charlie’s Place was a Myrtle Beach nightspot owned by Charlie Fitzgerald from the late 1930s to the early 1960s where famous Motown artists used to play. You can walk through and learn about the history of the area during free tours on a Tuesdays.

“It’s giving the community a way to connect with their heritage and with their roots,” said Alfreda Funnye, who works for the City of Myrtle Beach and coordinates Charlie’s Place tours.  “It provides a cultural experience and it gives visitors an opportunity to kind of get away from off the beach a little bit and com and see what’s inside our neighborhoods and the people that make up the city and town.”
