Best Times to Visit Myrtle Beach

The best time to visit Myrtle Beach is from June to August when the weather is just right for enjoying the beach. You can expect some afternoon rain showers during this time of year (especially July), and keep in mind that the region's hurricane season will last from June through November. You'll also experience some warm temperatures and slightly cheaper rates if you visit March through May, but you may have to contend with spring breakers from area colleges crowding the beach and nearby hotels. Autumn ushers in room bargains and cooler temperatures that range from the high 70s to the mid-40s. During winter, chilly temperatures introduce the lowest rates (and fewer crowds), but be aware that some area attractions and restaurants will be closed or offer shortened hours.

June-August

Although room rates are high and the shoreline can get a bit crowded with your fellow vacationers, this is the best time to experience Myrtle Beach. Not only is the weather superb, but all of the attractions are open. There's also a big festival calendar this time of year.
 
Key Events:

March-May

This shoulder season is pleasant with warm temperatures and lower humidity and hotel rates than the summer months. But keep in mind: March and April are prime spring break months, so you may have to share some sand and the hotel with college kids. 

Key Events: 

September-October

Temperatures tend to dip a little, so the crowds thin out. But there are still a good amount of festivals, and hotel rates are more affordable this time of year. 

Key Events:

November-February

Many restaurants have closed up shop for the season (except those participating in Restaurant Week South Carolina), but relatively cheap holiday deals are available — shows, dinner, hotels and of course, the shopping are all discounted this time of year. Plus, there are plenty of area events to keep you entertained if it's too cold to hit the beach.
