Fall is quickly approaching and now is the time to start planning your off-season vacation to Myrtle Beach! While a beach vacation might not sounds appealing at first, we promise that Myrtle Beach still has plenty of perks outside of the prime summer season.
Wide Open Beaches
The fall and spring seasons offer pristine beach weather and empty beaches compared to the busy summer season. The temperatures remain enjoyable from April – October, a little known fact for our visitors. Guests still have plenty of time to avoid the crowds and take advantage of the sun and sand.
And, even when the water does get too chilly to jump in, the beach is always a great place to watch the sun rise, take a scenic evening stroll, or enjoy a leisurely min-day picnic. The off-season also tends to be more lenient when it comes to having pets on the beach, so pet lovers often enjoy the shoulder season where they can bring their favorite furry friend along for the adventure.
Great Deals on Oceanfront Hotels & Resorts
Planning a summer vacation in Myrtle Beach can quickly escalate into a costly affair. Taking an slightly earlier or later vacation, however, can save big bucks all around. Prices in the off-season can be quite reasonable and can even enable you to enjoy a much longer stay for the same budget you’d spend in the summer. Fall, in particular, is a popular time for guests as the weather stays beach-worth through the end of October and visitors can enjoy all of the other perks of their off-season trip.
Myrtle Beach is also a great destination for a holiday getaway for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, or even Easter. The area offers plenty of lively events and entertainment during the holiday season, so guests will still find plenty to do year round.
