It was a picture-perfect day for the grand opening of SkyWheel Myrtle Beach. Hundreds of people lined up early this morning for a spot to take the first trip on the SkyWheel.

After the speeches and ribbon-cutting, the first flight took off around 10:30 and the entire ride lasted about 15 minutes. What a great way to see the Grand Strand! See my photos here:
