Fall is arguably the best time to visit Myrtle Beach. You’ll enjoy cooler weather and cheaper hotel and rental rates than you can find during the summer, along with much smaller crowds to contend with. But what can you do on your Myrtle Beach fall vacation? The possibilities are almost endless! Summer might be over, but the fun doesn’t stop. Here are a few ideas for some fun fall activities in and around Myrtle Beach.

Head to the Farmers’ Market

Farmers’ markets are still going strong throughout the fall, so be sure to take the time to visit one! You’ll find fresh produce, homemade baked goods, desserts, handmade crafts, and so much more. Some farmers’ markets even have live music! If you’re traveling on a budget, visiting the farmers’ market is a great way to save money. You can find cheap snacks and souvenirs or simply walk around and chat with the farmers and vendors at each booth. Most farmers’ markets in the area are open through late October. Wherever you are staying in Myrtle Beach, just Google “farmers market near me.”

Attend a Fun Event

In the fall, plenty of fun events come to Myrtle Beach. If you’re a music lover, try to attend the Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival. Foodies will love events like the Beach ‘N Chili Fest or Conway Burger Week. You can enjoy unique pieces at the Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival, get some unique cuisine at the Irish Italian International Festival, or spend quality time with your loved ones at the Surfside Beach Family Festival. There’s something going on nearly every weekend, so be sure to check your calendar!

Check Out Local Museums

Maybe you need to get out of the heat or escape an afternoon shower. Perhaps you simply need a break from the beach. In that case, there are tons of fascinating museums for you to check out! Adding some education to your trip doesn’t have to be boring. Learn about the area’s history at the North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum or the South Carolina Maritime Museum. Check out incredible artwork at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum. For the kids, check out interactive museums like EdVenture Children’s or WonderWorks.

Go on a Fishing Charter

Spending time outdoors doesn’t mean you have to stay on land. By booking one of the many fishing charters on Myrtle Beach, you’ll have a unique experience on the water and can make some precious memories together. Even if you’ve never been on a fishing charter before, don’t worry! Our team is here to help you make the most of your time. We’ll show you the ropes and will take you to the best spots to catch some fish. During the fall, you’re likely to see fish like tarpon, redfish, speckled sea trout, and more.
