Summer brings millions of people to Myrtle Beach so they can escape the heat with cool ocean water and breezes on their vacation.
But, you know, Myrtle Beach doesn’t close down during the Fall, Winter and Spring. There are three other seasons you can enjoy in Myrtle Beach, and each of those seasons have a different attraction to offer those on a Myrtle Beach vacation. But my favorite is honestly a fall trip to the beach for a few different reasons.
The heat is gone!
Honestly the fall is, I think, a better time to come visit Myrtle Beach than in the summer. The summer heat in Myrtle Beach can be pretty brutal and can make on the beach or in the pool the only real comfortable places to be. But that’s not the case in the fall! The weather is still pretty warm (around 70 degrees Fahrenheit usually) so you can go to the beach and even go in the water, but you don’t have to in order to be cool. The fall weather is much more conducive to getting out and exploring some of the different parts of the area.
Festivals, events and more! Oh My!
Fall is festival season in Myrtle Beach! From several different food festivals, to music festivals and of course Halloween events, you can easily pick your favorite festival and book a trip around it. Or, just pick your vacation dates and be surprised at what’s going on in the area. Some resorts even have discounted rates around the festivals, so make sure to keep an eye out for those while booking.
Speaking of rates…
You can also get really low rates at some of the best Myrtle Beach resorts, because they’re looking to fill up their rooms during the slower off-season. It’s no secret that rates go sky-high in the summer and, believe it or not, the rates start to increase sooner than you’d imagine in the winter. The fall really is a great time for a low-cost trip. Also, if you’ve got a lot of time on your hands or several friends who are looking to take a trip too, you can book a long stay at a condo for crazy cheap and split the cost between your friends who can take turns coming down on the weekend or weeks at a time. The fall really is a great time to get bang for your vacation bucks.
Because there are fewer people around you won’t have to wait in line at attractions or to get a table at a great restaurant. Also, the locals who are working those restaurants and attractions are a bit less busy, so they can take the time to extend the very best service possible and talk with you about your trip and maybe give you some tips on some other places you should check out that you otherwise wouldn’t have tried.
There really is no downside to a fall vacation so take a look at your calendar and book your trip.
