Harvest elements on Myrtle Beach in October
Oct07

One of our favorite things about Myrtle Beach in the fall, especially in October, is how you still get the feel of a “summer vacay” but without the large crowds and high humidity. Even more, the October activities and events happening along the Grand Strand are some of our favorites of the year! Here’s everything you need to know about Myrtle Beach in October –take a look!

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 beautiful 75°F and the water stays around the low 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!

What are some reasons to visit Myrtle Beach in October?

Aside from the beautiful weather, one of our other top reasons for a Myrtle Beach vacation in October is the smaller crowd size. There is a whole lot to do in our wonderful little beach town, but sometimes the lines are just too long to get to do it all during our busy summer months. October is a great time to visit if you are looking for a more relaxed feel and the ability to make dinner or event reservations more last minute.

Here are a few other reasons to visit during October:

What is there to do in October?

Since 70° water might be a little cool for some swimmers, October is the perfect month to get out and explore the parts of the Grand Strand you haven’t seen before. Take a stroll through the La Amie Vineyard in Little River or visit Atalaya Castle down in Huntington Beach State Park.

This month features tons of Myrtle Beach fall festivals and events such as Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest, St. John’s Greek Festival, The Hippie Fest, Art in the Park, Boofest at Barefoot Landing, and tons of other Halloween festivities along 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.

We have put together a list of our favorite romantic dining options and the best activities to partake in while enjoying the perfect Myrtle Beach honeymoon as newlyweds!

 

Dining

Thoroughbreds Chophouse & Seafood Grille

Located slightly north of us at 9706 N. Kings Hwy, Thoroughbreds is a locally owned and operated fine dining restaurant that has been a Myrtle Beach favorite for nearly 30 years. They pride themselves in offering fine quality food and excellent service to all of their guests. The upscale atmosphere is perfect for enjoying a romantic night out and you are sure to find plenty you’ll love on their extensive wine and dinner menus.

Enjoy shopping in unique boutiques such as J.Jill, Anthropologie, and Ivy & Leo and then head on over for lunch and afternoon cocktails at Tupelo Honey Café or Travinia’s Italian Kitchen.

The Market Common is just a short 10-minute drive from Coral Beach Resort and is open all year round.

Huntington Beach State Park

Huntington Beach is located in Murrells Inlet at 16148 Ocean Hwy. Looking if you need more information? Give them a call at 843-237-4440.
