Staying in a vacation rental in Garden City Beach or Surfside Beach offers an experience that you’ll never want to leave while creating memories to last a lifetime. Labor Day weekend is the unofficial start of fall, but that doesn't mean the beach is no longer a vacation destination option. The heat of the summer starts to cool and the crowds during peak season start to dwindle. Here are some top reasons why vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area is perfect for a last-minute getaway with Dunes Realty.
#1 - Lower Rates
With the peak seasons ending in late August/early September, you can book a Garden City Beach or Surfside Beach vacation at a better price during the shoulder season months. This allows you to save money on your accommodation and spend it on activities where you and your family can make special memories.
#2 - Fewer Crowds
Crowds flock to the beach in the summer, but in the offseason, you can experience the luxury of having the beach to yourself. Take a morning stroll and revel in a peaceful morning sunrise or spend time with family on the beach in the afternoon. You can live like a local in the offseason and dine in all of the local's favorites hotspots without having to wait in a long line.
#3 - Weather
The Southern heat can be quite intense during the summer months, which can sometimes make for a difficult beach day. Enjoy milder temperatures in the Fall and still enjoy a dip in the ocean, where the water doesn’t get too cold until late November.
#4 Myrtle Beach Fall Activities
When the temperatures drop, the fun doesn’t stop! The South Strand and Myrtle Beach areas have plenty of ways to find family fun and adventure during the fall season. With mild temperatures allowing for outdoor activities without the strain of the summer heat and a variety of indoor attractions, we have your guide to the best fall activities!
