Fall in Myrtle Beach is truly a special time. Often overlooked due to the “Summer Vacation” tradition and the excitement of warm weather in the Spring, Fall is a great time to experience the Grand Strand in a more relaxed and comfortable environment.
Here are 5 reasons why you should book your Myrtle Beach Fall Trip:
- Cooler Temperatures
If you’ve ever been to Myrtle Beach in the late Spring or Summer, you’ve noticed one constant – HUMIDITY! Not only does this completely WRECK hairstyles, humidity hangs over everything making it tough to relax if you’re not directly oceanfront. Walking around Barefoot or Broadway in the evening means that you better put deodorant on……everywhere. In the Fall you’ll enjoy perfect temps with very low humidity. Think 72-75 degrees, sunny, and a nice refreshing breeze……ahhhhh…. Myrtle Beach weather in the fall makes that morning cup of coffee taste better, the stroll around your resort a quality jaunt, and dinner outside one of the terrific restaurants here the perfect experience.
- Fewer Crowds
Those that have visited Myrtle Beach in the Summer – especially the week of July 4th, know of the bumper to bumper traffic, long lines for restaurants, and lots of sweaty tourists crammed into specialty shops with no idea what they’re looking for. Let’s not even mention Wal-Mart on a Summer Saturday! In the Fall, you’ll feel like the beach belongs to YOU! There’s no more rushing around, you can take your time, and not have to worry about missing your turn because folks are reading the “Free Shark Tooth Necklace” sign instead of moving along. With the kids in school and many families focused on sports, school, and extra curriculars, there’s no better time to come. Great attractions, like The Duplin Winery become havens for low stress and the perfect place to release tension. You’ll feel like you’re on a true vacation! You’ll be able to forget about planning times to eat, shop, and golf and you can take on the day as it unfolds. Nice!
- Golf’s Second Season
One of the best things about Spring in Myrtle Beach is the opening of Golf Season. During this time, thousands of golfers descend upon the Grand Strand to get a break from the cold and get their fairway fix. Spring, however, can be a fickle partner weather-wise. You may get those 75-degree days or it may be 40! During the Fall, the temps are very consistent, and you’ll get more warm days that cool. There’s fewer travelers, so booking tee times or simply visiting your course of choice is a breeze. Also – the quintessential Golf Trip is IDEAL for the Fall due to restaurants that cater to sports fans. Baseball playoffs, College Football, NFL, NHL, and UFC all get rolling in Fall. Special Brews can be enjoyed nearly anywhere, and you’ll certainly find places that give special deals to golf groups.
- Special Events and Festivals
Myrtle Beach doesn’t really need special events during the Summer, as the beach itself is the main attraction. During the Fall however, travelers can experience unique flavors, art, music, and culture at one of the many fall festivals. There’s Mustang Week, The Little River Shrimp Festival, Endless Summer Festival, Irish/Italian Festival, Oktoberfest, The Greek Festival, Hippie Fest, Halloween Events, and more. Each year, more and more are added as Myrtle Beach is becoming a year-round destination. These events are great opportunities to not only unwind, but to do early Christmas shopping, meet locals, and try new things. I LOVE THE FALL!
- Lower Rates
This one is a no-brainer, but rates are a LOT higher in the Summer months! The Fall brings with it lower rates and special deals. Ask for deals wherever you go including accommodations, restaurants, attractions, and services. There are usually special promotions going on everywhere and all you have to do is ask. Your dollar goes farther in the Fall, for sure! Call 888-808-2788 to find out more!
There you have it! Are you ready to hit the beach this Fall? Can you taste the pumpkins spice (unless you hate pumpkins spice, of course!)? Are you ready to relax and recharge for a quick getaway? Let’s go!
