Best Time To Go To Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is a prime year round destination. Since it’s a seaside city, the temperatures don’t vary by a wide margin. The peak of summer is known to have high temperatures and coupled with humidity, come armed with sunscreen to tackle the sunshine. The winters are rather mild and a drop in accommodation rates and lesser crowds attracts quite a number of budget travelers.

  • March-September: The months from May to August in particularly are the busiest for Myrtle Beach. The beaches are filled to capacity and rates are sky high. For a quint essential American holiday, head down to Myrtle Beach. If you’re seeking the sun, sands & the crowd, March and April are ideal as the summer still hasn’t set in, but the temperatures are quite pleasant to enjoy some beach time and sport a tan. August and September are the city’s wettest months, so make sure you carry an umbrella whenever you step out.
  • October-February: The months of September and October are when the crowds start thinning and temperatures drop in the 70’s (Fahrenheit). It’s a great time to visit the city as there are  a lot of events happening in the city like the Chili Cook-off and Oktoberfest. Come November, many of the attractions start to shut down or run for a shorter number of hours. Since the off season, great discounts when it comes to accommodation are up for grabs!
