Fall Things To Do In Myrtle Beach
While spring and summer along the Grand Strand are peak seasons, fall is a wonderful time in Myrtle Beach as temperatures cool and local events are plentiful. Don't let us fool you though, the average temperatures from September to October still range in the high 70's, making it an excellent time to get out and experience all the Grand Strand has to offer including some of our inland areas.
While the 2020 Fall Festival Season will look a little different this year as many of our annual favorites such as the Annual Little River ShrimpFest and the Pawleys Island Festival or Music & Art have been canceled due to COVID there are still many options for outdoor fun for all ages. Check out our list of fall events in Myrtle Beach and start packing your calendar with seasonal fun nearly every weekend.
