Planning a trip to Myrtle Beach? You’re sure to have an exciting time exploring this city with the ones you love most. But now that you’ve decided where you’re going for vacation, you’ll need to decide on when you’ll come and visit. There’s truly never a bad time to visit Myrtle Beach, but there are definitely differences in the seasons that you’ll want to keep in mind. Here are a few key tips to think about when deciding when to visit Myrtle Beach!

Annual Weather

Myrtle Beach experiences the four seasons in distinct ways, so depending on what type of weather you prefer, one season may be more appealing than another. In the spring, you’re likely to experience high temperatures in the 60s or low 70s and low temperatures down into the 40s and 50s. Summer is (as you can probably guess) the hottest season, reaching almost into the 90s. In fall, temperatures begin to drop into the low 80s and 70s, and in winter, you’ll find temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

Luckily, Myrtle Beach doesn’t experience a ton of rain in any season. Summer is the wettest time of year with an average of 8 days with rain each month. Still, this rain usually comes as an afternoon shower, which helps cool things down for the evening. Each of the other seasons is relatively dry, experiencing around 5 rainy days each month.

Things to Do

No matter when you head to Myrtle Beach, you’ll find tons of fun things to do! Many of the most popular things to do in Myrtle Beach have to do with being outdoors, and you can enjoy these activities in nearly any season. Head down to Myrtle Beach State Park to dip your toes in the sand or visit Family Kingdom Amusement Park to enjoy some fun theme park rides with your family. Plus, there are countless mini-golf courses if you’re feeling competitive!

If you’re looking for something indoors when it’s cold or rainy, there’s plenty of shopping to be done! The Market Common and Broadway at the Beach are two incredible shopping destinations with a little something for everyone. Other popular indoor attractions include Ripley’s Aquarium, the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum.

Best Time to See Marine Life

One of the biggest appeals to Myrtle Beach is the stunning marine life. Many people visit this city every year simply to come on a Myrtle Beach dolphin cruise! But when are you most likely to spot a dolphin? Typically, dolphins are most active in this area in the fall, usually around October or November. You might also see dolphins in March or April, since the animals tend to head back up north during this time.

When you book your Myrtle Beach dolphin tour, we’d recommend hitting the water as early as possible. The water conditions tend to be rougher later in the day (usually after 2 p.m.), so if you come early, you’re more likely to see marine life playing in the waves!
