Things To Do In Myrtle Beach in January
Dec17

Just because we are officially in the “off-season” for beach vacations, the list of things to do in Myrtle Beach in January is longer than you’d think. Unlike in the past, most of Myrtle Beach now stays open year-round. Restaurants, shops, and attractions continue to welcome visitors and locals. Some of them even offer discounts.  

Many golfers head to Myrtle Beach in January for the great golf packages and deals. Others visit to enjoy the beach with fewer people. Some just love the mild winter weather that Myrtle Beach has compared to up North. But no matter why you have come to stay, we have found all of the fun and created this list of things to do in Myrtle Beach in January just for you! 

 

Staying In For The Day

For the days when you don’t feel like leaving the resort, slide on your swimsuit, grab a towel, and head downstairs. Coral Beach Resorts & Suites has one of the largest indoor heated pool complexes in Myrtle Beach. 

Our spacious indoor pool is heated to a perfect 86 degrees. There is also spa jacuzzis and a kiddie play area.  And all of the great pool amenities are included with your stay.

If you are still feeling the holiday spirit, two local businesses have paired up to provide you with an incredible holiday deal! This year, you have the opportunity to experience a Duplin Winery wine tasting and the Carolina Opry Christmas Special from the comfort of your own home or your hotel room. 

It’s simple. Purchase your Virtual Christmas Show package online for the limited-time price of $99.95. Once your package arrives, in addition to your variety pack of wine and treats from Duplin, there are instructions on how to enjoy your wine tasting. Then, turn on the TV and use the access code in your package that gives you unlimited, on-demand access to The Carolina Opry Christmas Special. You can watch it at home anytime before Jan. 14th. 

 

It’s Time For The Theatre

A few great live shows are running in January this year. For one night only, The Alabama Theatre will host An Evening with Greg Rowles. This event is on Jan. 9th and will celebrate the 41 years Greg Rowles has spent in the entertainment industry. You may purchase your tickets here.

The GTS Theatre has four shows running during January. There are two Elvis Tribute shows starring award-winning entertainer Alex Mitchell. The Motown Tribute Show will be running, and a Magic Show with Michael Bairefoot is also on the schedule. Please check the GTS Theatre website for dates, times, and pricing. 

 

Experience The Historic Rivertown

No matter how cool the weather, the Historic Rivertown of Conway is jam-packed with festivities this January. On Jan. 9th from 2 pm to 5 pm join in on the Winter 2021 Rivertown Wine-Around. Participants will spend their Saturday afternoon exploring Downtown Conway while sampling delicious wine at each show on the Wine-Around map. Tickets are $25 and must be purchased in advance

Sneak-In Like A Local

The more well-known attractions in Myrtle Beach are always fun to visit. Spending an afternoon seeing celebrities at the Hollywood Wax Museum. Taking a mid-morning “swim” with the sharks at Ripley’s Aquarium. Or having a jumpin’-good time with the kids at Rockin’ Jump. But there are a couple of the local events happening around town that we thought you might enjoy! 

Take a short drive to the south end of town on Jan 3rd for the 5th Annual Murrells Inlet Chicken Bog Challenge. Sample chicken bog creations from 15 teams for one all-you-can-eat price. This year’s event will take place at Uncle Tito’s in Murrells Inlet from noon to 3 pm. 

Kind Keeper Animal Rescue, a local no-kill non-profit animal shelter, will be hosting their first-ever Polar Bear Plunge! Support a cause while joining in on the local tradition of taking a dip in the ocean in January. 

This event is on Jan 16th at Neal & Pam’s Bar and Grill in Surfside Beach. Check-in starts at 11 am. The Plunge will take place at 1 pm followed by A Poppin’ Polar Plunge Party. There is a $30 minimum donation for participating polar-plungers, and all proceeds will benefit Kind Keeper. Pre-register for the event and find out more on the Kind Keeper website.  

 

Whether you are enjoying a round of mini-golf, hiking the trails of the state park, or enjoying one of these local events, there are endless things to do in Myrtle Beach in January. The ocean keeps crashing beautifully on the beaches and the sun keeps shining bright in the sky. The winter-time is a great time of year to visit Myrtle Beach.

Harvest elements on Myrtle Beach in October
Oct12

Here’s everything you need to know about Myrtle Beach in October –take a look!

Is October a good time to visit Myrtle Beach?

October is a fantastic time to visit Myrtle Beach. Not only is the weather perfect, but the crowds are far less as well. October is the perfect time to enjoy the beach and a variety of fall festival events happening all along the Grand Strand.

Is Myrtle Beach warm in October?

Let’s get right to the punch, the short answer is YES! While there are usually a handful of considerable cooler days within the month, the average temperature for Myrtle Beach in October is a comfortable 75°F and the water stays around the mid 70’s. Did we mention that we usually only have around 5 days of rain throughout the entire month? (But in case of rain, here are a few fun things to do during rainy days.) 

We’re not sure about you, but we’d take sunny and 75° over humid and 105° any day! 

Boy swimming in Myrtle Beach in OctoberCan you swim in Myrtle Beach in October?

During the month of October, the water stays around 76°F, perfect for splashing around or boogie boarding! 

 

If it’s a chilly October day, don’t worry! Coral Beach has one of the largest indoor heated pool complexes in Myrtle Beach, so be sure to pack your swimsuit!

What are some reasons to visit Myrtle Beach in October?

Aside from the perfect weather, one of our other top reasons for a Myrtle Beach vacation in October, the crowds are small! There is a whole lot to do in our wonderful little beach town, but during the summer months, the lines can get long. October is a great time to visit if you are looking for a more relaxed feel and the ability to make last-minute dinner or event reservations.

What is there to do in October?

Since the weather is cool and less humid during October, it’s an amazing opportunity to get out and explore the parts of the Grand Strand you haven’t seen before. Sip wine at La Amie Vineyard, take a stroll through Brookgreen Gardens or visit Atalaya Castle in Huntington Beach State Park.

Here a few other fun things to do while visiting during the fall:

 

There are typically tons of fun fall events happening in Myrtle Beach in October like Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest, St. John’s Greek Festival, Art in the Park, and other Halloween festivities –just to name a few. In light of COVID-19, some events have been postponed or adjusted their experience to keep patrons safe and healthy, here’s a list of updated events:

SkyWheel Myrtle Beach in OctoberIs Myrtle Beach Boardwalk open in October?

Yes, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is open year-round including October. Though some of the shops may shut down for the summer, there is still so much to see and explore! One of our favorite things to do on the boardwalk is to ride the SkyWheel and get a gorgeous view of the Grand Strand.

Lastly, you can never go wrong with visiting one of the outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment centers: Broadway at the Beach, Market Common, or Barefoot Landing.

You have planned your dream wedding and everything is ready. Married life is waiting for you and the wedding is fast approaching. But – what about your honeymoon? Have you found the perfect place to “get away” from it all while keeping your budget in mind?

Whether you are seeking a remote, romantic getaway or an action-packed week of excitement and activity, a honeymoon in Myrtle Beach truly offers something for anyone. Though it sounds cliché – our pristine beaches offer variety and romance for any budget or taste. 

Take a look at a few popular honeymoon itineraries for different types of travelers and start planning your honeymoon bliss at Coral Beach Today!

Budget-Friendly Honeymoon Getaway

Yes – it IS still possible to enjoy a relaxing beach getaway for your honeymoon without breaking the bank! There are several ways to save money on a beach honeymoon right off the bat:

Time of Year

Taking a spring or fall vacation in Myrtle Beach will save big bucks when it comes to your hotel. These seasons are particularly popular for weddings so the timing matches nicely with wedding season, though Myrtle Beach isn’t nearly as busy during this “shoulder season”. Hotel rates are quite a bit more affordable and you will be able to get a better bang for your buck.

Type of room

Can you live without the oceanfront view? If so, opt for an oceanview or interior room to save some extra cash. Also, if you want to save on your other expenses, opt for a unit with either efficiency or a full kitchen. Though these sometimes cost a small amount more than units without these features, you will save more in the long run by cooking a few meals at home – assuming you don’t mind a little cooking on your vacay.

When you book

Like any other vacation, booking your getaway in advance can also save you a pretty penny in the long run. Room rates are dictated by simple economics and as rooms fill up the rates increase. Avoid these inevitable price increases by booking as far in advance as possible. Coral Beach actually has an Early Book Program that offers lower rates for advanced bookings.

Activities

Kayaking

While it might still be a little cool for a dip in the ocean, kayaking the intercoastal waterway is a great way to be on the water without getting too wet!

Paddle Boarding

To start the day off, why not get in the water? After all, is it really spring without some time in the sun and the sea? While the months of March and April can still be a little cool in the mornings, and the ocean is not quite swimming temps, we recommend going on a paddleboard tour with Carolina Waterman. This guided paddleboarding adventure takes you on a 2-hour instructional tour of the Waccamaw River. See nature up close and enjoy the relaxing water views!
