Fall Events in Myrtle Beach
Labor Day is officially a thing of the past and summer is winding down here at the beach. Although prime season is over, there are still tons of exciting events happening along the Grand Strand. The temperatures stay in the 70’s and 80’s so the weather is ideal for bumming at the beach or hitting the town. Many visitors actually prefer to visit the area in the fall because the kids are gone and the crowds have diminished. Check out our list of fall events in Myrtle Beach and take advantage of the unbeatable Beach Cove specials to plan your next trip!
