Visit Myrtle Beach Helping Visitors to Reclaim Summer, Indulge in a Trip This Fall

Myrtle Beach, S.C. (August 21, 2019) – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, known for its 60 miles of stunning beaches that maintain a summer-like appeal well into the fall, has an enticing message to those who don’t want their summer to end: there’s no better spot to “Stretch Your Summer” than in America’s favorite beach town. To back up that claim, Visit Myrtle Beach is launching a fall-timed campaign packed with deals, itinerary ideas, and more.

“Many visitors know Myrtle Beach for its summertime fun, but fall is one of the destination’s best-kept secrets – offering warm temperatures, fewer crowds and incredible value for your money in the shoulder season,” said Karen Riordan, president and CEO of Visit Myrtle Beach. “For those who have the flexibility to travel off-season, it’s the perfect way to ‘Stretch Your Summer’ with a vacation before the end of the year.”
