Fall is the Perfect Time to Visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
With autumn in full swing, the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina is inviting visitors to enjoy a last-minute fall getaway along its 60 miles of beautiful coastline. Boasting summer-like temperatures and fewer crowds, the destination offers endless off-the-beach activities, delicious dining options, and lodging discounts of 30 percent or more – perfect for those seeking an easy and affordable trip before the end of the year.
"There's still plenty of time to take advantage of the Myrtle Beach area's mild temperatures, deep hotel discounts and year-round attractions," said Karen Riordan, president and CEO of Visit Myrtle Beach. "Following Hurricane Florence's arrival last month, which thankfully spared the majority of the Myrtle Beach area, we are eager to invite visitors back to safely experience the destination's stunning beaches, fresh seafood and more."
Among the fall's seasonal draws are signature events like the Myrtle Beach Seafood Festival (Oct. 5-7) which highlights many of the city's most delicious, freshest seafood options along with live entertainment and activities, the Little River ShrimpFest (Oct. 13 & 14), along the town's quaint waterfront and featuring live jazz music, and the Loris Bog-Off Festival(Oct. 20), which showcases one of the region's most beloved dishes.
