off season myrtle beach

If we go to Myrtle beach this fall after Labor Day, will the attractions such as the miniature golf courses still be open? Does everything shut down after the summer is over?

No. September is still full operation at all attractions with much lower room rates.

We have gone to Myrtle Beach in September, October, and my favorite which is right before Christmas.
It's wonderful, and about the only thing that closes are the water parks.
All minature golf places, etc. are open.

Nearly everything remains open in Myrtle Beach year round except for the water parks. However, the water parks should still be open in September as they still have quite a tourist trade at that time. It is a great time to visit MB as school is back in session so it is not quite as crowded, except over the weekends. You will not have to wait as long to get into good restaurants etc. In my opinion that is the perfect time to visit as long as there is not a hurricane visiting at the same time.

We love Myrtle Beach in the off season. The crowds are gone, prices have dropped, the weather is usually great and the water is still warm. Just be aware of the fall bike rally the week of Oct 3-7. We've gone while it was going on and the constant droning sound of motorcycles can be a bit overwhelming.

For those of us who live here, Fall is when we start to come out of our air-conditioned cocoons for pastimes that don't involve the water. One of my faves is catching a show at the Theatre of the Republic in Conway, a 20 minute drive out 501 from the beach. If you get to town right after labor day, you can catch the first show of the season, Chicago, which runs through Sept. 9th (go to theatreoftherepublic.org for info). Conway is great for shopping, antiquing, and eating, too (try Crady's or the Trestle on Main St. or the Rivertown Bistro on 4th Ave.).

Everyone mentioned that the water parks close after labor day but is the weather typically warm enough to swim in a pool at the hotels/resorts?

The fall is absolutely THE most beautiful time at the beach. MB is as it is year round, if that is what you want! ;o)
And the water parks close, but the pools and ocean are still there.

wishing2travel4life,

here is a link to average air and ocean temps year-round:

Also, a lot of the hotels down here have those new-fangled inventions, heated in-door pools!

I already looked at the average temp sites but wanted a "realistic" point of view from folks who may live in the area. The average temp may be one thing but I was wondering what it "really" is like.

I understand what you're saying. Okay, here's a more personal summary from this resident.

September is hot. Less so than August, thus we pretend that Fall is here. For instance, every day in September so far has seen high temps in 90s or 80s, nothing less. If we're lucky, we'll get some daytime temps dipping into the 70s (and nighttime lows in the low 60s). Therefore, I think the pools will still be warm and the ocean swimmable.

Then comes October. By far, this is the best month at Myrtle Beach weather-wise. Most daytime temps will be in the 70s, some 60s perhaps, with lows hopefully in the 50s. Obviously, the pools (and eventually the ocean) are going to start cooling down as well. Certainly you can still wade in ocean comfortably as you walk the beach--we routinely dip our toes in the surf through most of November in a bad (cold) year and until almost Christmas in a good (warm) year.

Hope this helps.

beach_dweller,

Thank you very much. That was helpful. We are visiting in two weeks and wanted to make sure it was still warm for the kids to jump in the pool and dip their toes in the ocean. We're preparing ourselves for cooler nights as well.

Thanks again.

wish2travel4life,

the biggest risk of cold temps at night is going to be the setting on your room's air conditioner!

Enjoy your visit!

The absolute best time to go to that area is October in my opinion. The water is still way warm in September.
