Fall in Myrtle Beach is special. The weather is glorious, and there’s more room to breathe. Smaller crowds on the beaches. And plenty to do!
With many fun ways to beat the heat, it’s little wonder an autumn beach jaunt is on a lot of people’s minds. Dining al fresco is an absolute delight, and it won’t be long until you’ll want to bring a hoodie along for after sundown. Here’s your fall bucket list for the Grand Strand.
4 Things to Do This Fall in Myrtle Beach
Warm enough for short sleeves, cool enough for a sea breeze.
1. Enjoy Less-Crowded Beaches
Nothing against catching sunrays in July on the Grand Strand. But the fall transformation is incredible, too. Traffic thins out. There seem to be bountiful sea glass and sharks’ teeth on the shores. You have fewer bodies to navigate through. There’s potential to save money you might have had to spend in warmer months, too.
2. Beat the Heat and Enjoy Outdoor Dining
Bask a bit in the golden hour at a seaside table for two. Plan on date night at the festal confines of Flying Fish Public Market & Grill. Highly recommended: She-Crab Soup, the Southern Burger, or Shrimp and Grits.
4. Find a Fall Festival
