The past several months have been challenging and this summer was different than any before. After many months spending time at home, not able to take a break, it’s time to get away. A vacation in Myrtle Beach can be just what you need. Long after the summer has ended and fall has begun, you can still take in warm temperatures, feel the sunshine on your face, hear the ocean waves, feel the sand beneath your toes and escape from the everyday here this fall. When you are ready to escape to the beach, the Myrtle Beach area is ready to welcome you. Here are just a few reasons why fall is a great time to get back to Myrtle Beach.

Warm temperatures

While crisp air is setting in around the country, summer-like temperatures still abound in the Myrtle Beach area. Throughout the fall, warm weather and abundant sunshine brighten up the days and allow for outdoor activities in Myrtle Beach. Walk along the area’s 60 miles of beautiful beaches before claiming the perfect spot to lounge with a good book or jump into the water. For more adventure, rent a Jet Ski from Action Water Sportz for a day of exploring the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway.

Smaller crowds means more fun

In the fall, it’s easy to find peace and quiet in the Myrtle Beach area. From Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island to North Myrtle Beach and Little River, there are spots to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy solitude on the beach and beyond. Take a stroll down the Conway Riverwalk to take in the Waccamaw River on one side and historic buildings along oak-lined streets on the other side. Hike through native fauna in Myrtle Beach and Huntington Beach State Parks. This time of year, a morning stroll along the Boardwalk can be a quiet start to your day.

Fall is also the perfect time to enjoy popular attractions and restaurants without large crowds. Always wanted to try one of the insanely delicious treats at The Crazy Mason Milkshake Bar or take in all of the shops and activities at Barefoot Landing without waiting in line? Now is your chance!

Fall flavors

While you may be leaving cool weather behind when you visit the Myrtle Beach area this fall, it doesn’t mean you are skipping out on seasonal food favorites. For both the young and young at heart, enjoy an apple turnover at Croissants or the cinnamon churro ice cream at Sugar Life Candy. For adults, indulge in an Apple Pie Martini at the Sea Captain’s House. A visit to Myrtle Beach wouldn’t be the same without some of the area’s longtime favorites. Make sure to try the delicious Southern comfort foods served up at Big Mike’s Soul Food, the fresh ocean-to table-seafood at Wicked Tuna to the fried catfish and footlong hot dogs at historic Peaches Corner and the Palmetto cheeseburger with homemade pimento cheese found at River City Café.
