Myrtle Beach Spring Vacation? Here’s What to Know

The enthusiasm is tangible, isn’t it?


There are chilly days ahead, but a spring trip to Myrtle Beach is closer every day. It’s a rite of passage to many, but to some, this spring will mark their first Grand Strand adventure. 


Here’s a guide to doing it right.

Travel Tips for Spring

  1. Book Early. Secure your accommodations now to ensure you get the room type you want, at the resort you want. You’re not the only one dreaming!
  2. Schedule ‘White Space.’ That means, don’t book up your whole vacation. Leave some time to be.
  3. Make a Plan, Though. Research things you’d like to do. Are the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in town during your stay? This post is a good place to start.

Spring Getaway Guide to Myrtle Beach: WHAT TO EXPECT


MARCH: Highs: Mid-60s. Lows: Mid-40s. You might feel comfortable enough in shorts, but pack jeans and a hoodie, too. Bring warm pajamas.

APRIL: Highs: Low-70s. Lows: Low-50s. Shorts and T-shirts, but still bring the sweatshirt and jeans. Toasty pajamas are still in play.

  2. Grab some sushi and hibachi
  3. Get some retail therapy


This will be an interesting spring for visitors. Travelers seem eager to branch out and get back to normal. Yet the latest COVID-19 strain appears to be troublesome. Expect bigger weekend crowds, so if you can visit during the week, do it. You could:

  2. Rock out at The Bowery
  3. Enjoy a Riptydz Burger and Million Dollar View Mega Mason
