And would they even be able to build Hotels there just to support the beach? There for a while seems anyone could get financing for a hotel, but I assume the new interest rates will keep it down.
We have had lots of promised attractions here in Columbia. There was supposed to be the Waterpark on Farrow in the NE. I think a White Wolf lodge, a white water center. And now this. I would bet a moderate amount of money we won't see this beach get completed.
Columbia is Famously Hot! How can anyone not want to come and experience the Phoenix of the SE especially up in the sandhills
