Spring is a very special time here in North Myrtle Beach. If you’ve never been, we have to say: you’re missing out. The weather is terrific, the chill of winter is gone, and yet it’s not too hot yet. It’s warm enough to walk barefoot on the beach, but you don’t have to take refuge from the sun—you can simply bask in its glory.
Plus, there are tons of terrific attractions nearby in the spring, near and far. Here are a few of our favorites:
St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival
If you’re looking for the biggest, best parade on the Grand Strand, you’ve found it. Dress up in green and head to Main Street in North Myrtle Beach and get ready for a good time! Parade-goers line up early, so be sure to grab your spot well before the parade begins at 9 a.m. Following the parade, you can check out more than 125 vendors with arts, crafts and delicious food, as well as live music and a kid’s area.
