Great climate, less crowds and fun-filled events makes fall a great time to visit Myrtle Beach! The temperatures decrease significantly to the mid-80s and 70s in the day and nights can be in the low 60s and high 50s. The roads have far less traffic and the beach, restaurants and attractions are less crowded. With the kids back in school it is a great time for the adults to come out and play.

Our September and October festivals are great times for bringing your friends and family to the beach and really enjoying what we have to offer. Post Labor Day there are a million and one reasons for coming back to Myrtle Beach for all the fun! Just take a gander at what we have coming up:
