5 Tips For a Great Fall Getaway to Myrtle Beach

Make it to the Grand Strand this September for a late-season getaway.

September temperatures are cooler, but the fun in Myrtle Beach is still hot. With highs still in the low 80s and lows in the high 60s, it’s still pleasant without the summer sizzle.

The Grand Strand especially is the epicenter of the late-season fun in Myrtle Beach. Not only with some of the attractions that have become family favorites in the area, such as a walk on the Springmaid Pier, a visit to Warbird Park, or a day in Myrtle Beach State Park, but also with cool events scheduled throughout the month.

Fall Weather in Myrtle Beach

As mentioned, it’s nice in Myrtle Beach in September, with fewer rainy days than in the summer on average. Expect summer-hot days, of course, May through August. July and August see a fair share of thunderstorms. With water warm enough for swimsuits this month, the area sees a late surge of visitors through Labor Day weekend.
