Myrtle Beach – known for its spacious beaches, lively family attractions, delicious restaurants, and countless golf courses – will be closing shortly. With the summer season ending and children going back to school, what is the point in visiting this popular summer vacation spot anyways? Will not everything be shutting down?
In response to the statement above that Myrtle Beach will be closing shortly, it is completely false! The area is no doubt less populated with visitors compared to June, July, and August months. Fortunately, many attractions and restaurants will remain open in the fall and winter months. So why should you visit Myrtle Beach anytime other than in the summer months? Here are 7 reasons why!
1. Many Myrtle Beach attractions will remain OPEN!
Myrtle Beach is known for its wide variety of attractions and entertainment fit for any age. While hours may vary at the different locations, many of the popular spots such as Broadway at the Beach and the Myrtle Beach Boulevard & Boardwalk will remain open! Ripley’s Aquarium, Wonderworks, and the Hollywood Wax Museum are a few ideas we encourage you to add to your vacation bucket list as well.
2. There are fantastic festivals and events coming up in Myrtle Beach during the fall and winter seasons.
In September there will be the 18th Annual Mustang Week and Aynor Harvest Hoedown. October will be nothing short of fun with the popular Myrtle Beach Bike Week Fall Rally and Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest being held at The Market Common! And that’s not all – in November there will be the 50th Annual South Carolina Bluegrass Festival and Dickens Christmas Show. For a complete list of upcoming events, be sure to check out Palmetto Vacation Rentals “Calendar of Events” page under Area Guide.
3. Less crowds equals less chaos.
How awesome would it be to skip the lines and long wait times? With less people rushing onto the beach, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving around the Myrtle Beach area, you will have a lot more space and time to enjoy the things that you love! Let’s face it – sometimes crowds can be pretty overwhelming – especially on vacation.
4. Outstanding rates and available rentals being offered!
In the fall and winter months here in Myrtle Beach, you will find that rates at any condo vacation rental company are much lower compared to the summer season. Why not take advantage of the great deals being offered during the “off-season?” We here at Palmetto have a ton of fantastic deals to extend to you during these upcoming months.
5. Fall weather (and winter too) in Myrtle Beach is prime.
Compared to the summer months with temperatures reaching up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit with added in afternoon showers, fall at the beach is perfect. Temperatures range between 62 to 75 during the fall season. In the wintertime, the average is around 57 to 61 degrees. This weather is great for walking on the beach or exploring the many festivals being held! Beat the humidity and soak in the Myrtle Beach rays during our off-season prime weather months.
6. You can escape to the beach for more than a week!
To anyone looking to flee from the winter cold, Myrtle Beach is a great spot for all our snowbirds. We offer several long-term rentals ranging from one month to a year at a discounted rate! Think about waking up every morning to the Myrtle Beach sands and relaxing in your spacious home away from home rental.
7. Myrtle Beach is very easy to get to.
Many visitors dread the journey it takes to get to their vacation destination. Compared to spots such as Orlando, New York City, and Los Angeles – Myrtle Beach is an easy and convenient location to drive and fly into. The Myrtle Beach International Airport offers travelers incredible deals during the fall and winter months! Skip the crowds and traffic during the summer and head on down to the beach.
