    “Fall” in Love with Myrtle Beach Resort

    It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is right around the corner, and it only means that fall is coming. This fall, instead of heading to the mountains, why not head on to Myrtle Beach. We at Myrtle Beach Resort love this time of the year for many different reasons, and we’d love to share with them with you. Let’s look below at how you and your family can “fall” in love with our resort on your next vacation.

    Beach Weather

    “Fall” in Love with Myrtle Beach Resort

    One of the best things about when you vacation with us here at Myrtle Beach Resort during the fall is the weather. Not only will you have pleasant weather, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the sand as well. The highs during the days will be around  80° and lows around 65° for September. October will bring a little cooler temperature, such as 75° as the high and 55° as the lows. We suggest that you pack a few different things for the days and nights. No matter what the temperature is here in Myrtle Beach, it’s most likely warmer than the mountains for sure.

     Amenities

    Another great thing about coming to the beach during the fall months is the number of amenities that our resort has to offer.

Some of the other great amenities that we offer are hot tubs, tennis courts, three different health spas that have even steam rooms, saunas, and jacuzzi, and so much more. No matter what time of the year you visit Myrtle Beach Resort, there is something for everyone.
