Summer's Over! Come to North Myrtle Beach


The first of October is coming up next week, and I still haven't taken off my board shorts or stowed my surf board away for the year. In fact, I find myself hitting the beach more and more as the days inch closer to 2011. With the dense summertime humidity out of the area, high temperatures in the upper 80's and nighttime temperatures in the mid 60's; soon it will be time to open the windows on my beach cottage and relieve stress and my electric bill. As with most of the locals, I love this time of year!

Now is the best time to visit the Grand Strand if you can break away from the job and get your family to the beach for a weekend getaway. Not only is the weather near perfect, but there are fewer crowds on the beach strand, restaurants are still open, and most of the popular attractions and amusements still cater to fall and winter visitors. North Myrtle Beach and the rest of the Grand Strand host hundreds of fall festivals, such as the Shrimp & Jazz Festival in Little River and the South Carolina Bluegrass Festival in Myrtle Beach.

Spring and fall is usually the best time to "hit the greens." With daytime temperatures ranging from 75 - 85 degrees and low humidity, the golfer(s) in the family will likely spend all day in competitive play. A nice evening swim in the pool or ocean is a nice way to end a full day of golfing. There are several area golf courses with great pricing and available tee times.

No need to worry about finding a place to stay. Most of our properties have plenty of availability in the off-season. You can find the best prices of the year now, with rental pricing dropping up to $1000 or more from our in-season pricing! Leave the vacation planning up to us, and give us a call for advice.
