Q: What is the best month to visit Myrtle Beach?

A: The beauty of Myrtle Beach’s mild weather is that any month is a good month to visit! It just depends on what kind of beach vacation you’re looking for. Golfers typically enjoy the mild temperatures of early spring and fall, while families with children come for the hot summer months when kids are out of school and the ocean, water parks and hotel pools are perfect for cooling off. Many visitors from the Northeast and Canada flock to Myrtle Beach during the winter for our relatively warm weather. No snow shovels needed!
