If you’ve never been to Myrtle Beach in the winter before, it’s time to make a change! It’s so much more than just a summer destination, it’s truly a year-round vacation hotspot.
Even though “lay out and get a tan” won’t be on your winter in Myrtle Beach list the way it is in the summer, rest assured, there’s tons to do when you visit Myrtle Beach in the winter. Read on for a list of our top five faves!
1. Check out your favorite Myrtle Beach attractions, without the crowds
Many of your favorite big attractions in Myrtle Beach are open year-round, and when you visit in winter, you’re much less likely to deal with crowds. Head to Broadway at the beach for shopping, dining and entertainment –and maybe even a decent parking spot! And if you stay at Compass Cove, you can also visit two of the biggest attractions in Myrtle Beach, the SkyWheel and Brookgreen Gardens, for free thanks to the Sun & Fun Bonus, which comes free with every check in through Feb. 28, 2014.
2. Enjoy the beach
Just because it’s not going to be hot out when you visit Myrtle Beach in the winter doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the beach. It’s just a different scene—rather than being packed with coolers and sunbathers, the beach is dotted with people out for a stroll. You’ll be amazed at how relaxed and refreshed you feel after taking a long stroll along the beach in the wintertime—and you may also have better luck finding great shells!
3. Enjoy golf—miniature and full-sized
Winter in Myrtle Beach is a terrific time of year for golf. The weather is mild, and there’s not a lot of rain in the winter. Plus, you can often get excellent tee times. And if miniature golf is your thing, you get free unlimited passes through the Sun & Fun Bonus when you check in at Compass Cove through Feb. 28.
These are just a few of our favorite ideas, there’s also great shopping and dining in Myrtle Beach, as well as all the fun you can have hanging out right here at the resort! If you’ve never been before, don’t miss the chance to visit in the winter!
