Pleasant Weather: Myrtle Beach experiences milder temperatures during the fall, making it more comfortable for outdoor activities. The humidity decreases, and the average high temperatures range from the mid-70s to mid-80s, providing a pleasant climate for beach visits, golfing, and exploring our area.
Fewer Crowds: Fall is considered the shoulder season for tourism in Myrtle Beach, meaning there are fewer tourists compared to the peak summer months. This translates to shorter wait times at restaurants, less crowded beaches, and more relaxed experiences overall.
Budget-Friendly: With decreased demand, many hotels, campgrounds and vacation rentals offer lower rates during the fall season, making it a more budget-friendly time to visit. You will find deals and promotions that aren’t typically available during the peak summer months.
