Five Reasons to Visit Myrtle Beach This Fall
Fall is arguably one of the best seasons on the Grand Strand – and for good reason! The weather couldn’t be more perfect, there are tons of things to do, it’s festival season and the list goes on and on. Here are the top five reasons we think you should book your Fall Break in Myrtle Beach or North Myrtle Beach.
Did you know Myrtle Beach averages over 200 sunny days a year? Yep, it’s true! The average temperatures in September are in the 80s with October averaging around 77 degrees. The humidity is down, and the ocean is still warm enough for a dip, so you can stay on the beach all day long. The comfortable weather is also great for exploring all of the attractions and things to do in Myrtle Beach.
North Myrtle Beach and the rest of the Grand Strand have many popular annual events and free concerts each fall. The Irish-Italian Festival is one of North Myrtle Beach’s most exciting traditions and is held the last Saturday in September. The festival serves up everything from zeppoles and meatball subs to corned beef sandwiches and Guinness, with live bands and entertainers throughout the day. In Myrtle Beach you’ll find Mustang Week (September 3-9) and St. John’s Greek Festival (September 27-30) or venture further south to the Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival held each year in Huntington Beach State Park. No matter when you decide to book your stay, you’ll find plenty of events throughout the Grand Strand.
Find your new favorite attraction this fall at the beach! With cooler temperatures throughout the area, it’s easier to explore everything Myrtle Beach and the rest of the Grand Strand has to offer. Brookgreen Gardens should be on everyone’s must-see list. The attraction is listed as one of the Top 10 Gardens in the US by TripAdvisor and is home to its own zoo, fall festivals, special tours and so much more. Other fun attractions to discover include Alligator Adventure and Duplin Winery at Barefoot Landing, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel and Boardwalk, Pavilion Park at Broadway at the Beach or any of our great state parks. Check out one of the theaters for live shows all year round. Top picks include Alabama Theatre, The Carolina Opry, Legends in Concert, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament and Pirates Voyage.
Tourist season officially ends after Labor Day in Myrtle Beach. That means less time spent waiting at your favorite restaurants and attractions and more time spent on your own private beaches. You’ll love the private feel at your beach rentals as well. Take a long dip in a jacuzzi and spend as much time as you want lounging in the lazy river.
There’s no secret that when there are fewer visitors at the beach, the rates are lower, and the deals are amazing in the fall!
