How to have fun in Myrtle Beach this December

Myrtle Beach in November is very different from Myrtle Beach in July.

There’s a lot of beauty to winter on the coast, however. Despite seasonably cooler weather, Myrtle Beach is still home to many of the outdoor activities people enjoy in warmer months, too. Visit Brookgreen Gardens or the Market Common, and take a beach walk by your resort.

And there is no shortage of tee times available in Myrtle Beach this winter if golf is your game.

We’ve taken on the easy task of compiling reasons to visit Myrtle Beach this November. For the beachcomber to the thrill-seeker to those who long to sit by the sea and dive into a great read, there’s plenty to do.

What are your favorite places to visit and things to do in Myrtle Beach in November?

Why you should use your PTO before it’s gone!

Many of us forget about paid time off at work until the end of the year. Not every employer allows us to roll unused vacation into the new year. PTO is crucial to balancing work and personal life. Your employer offers it for a reason! Recharge and reconnect with loved ones with a well-deserved trip to Myrtle Beach this winter.




OUR RECOMMENDATION: Visit The Carolina Opry for award-winning entertainment.


Room rates drop a bit in December in Myrtle Beach. This is good news for you: You still get the same excellent resort experience and beach access you would in season, but with some savings you can use for a great meal out during your winter stay, perhaps.

Check amenities. A resort with indoor pools and hot tubs would be nice this time of year, right?

OUR RECOMMENDATION: Dayton House Resort in Myrtle Beach has hot tubs and indoor pools for an added perk during a December getaway. There’s also a tanning lawn there.

#3:  More room!

Visitors still flock to Myrtle Beach in December – but not in quite the numbers they do in the summer. This means you’ll have less traffic to navigate, fewer lines to wait in, and a better chance to book the room at that resort you love (or have been wanting to try.)

Also, your favorite restaurants in Myrtle Beach won’t be quite as crowded.

WE RECOMMEND: Book a tee time at a golf course in Myrtle Beach that you haven’t yet played. Conditions are still great, and the scenery just as spectacular as it is in season.

#4:  Wonderful weather

With an average high in the mid-60s and normal lows in the upper 40s, you’ll find Myrtle Beach a comfortable escape in December.

Unless you’re visiting from northern climates and are used to cold temperatures, you’ll probably not want to swim in the ocean in Myrtle Beach in November! It’s perfect for a beach chair and a good book by the saves, however. Bring a sweatshirt, hat, and sunscreen.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: A morning walk on the beach. Chilly but beautiful!

#5:  Holiday happiness

Lots of shows, such as those at the aforementioned Carolina Opry, open in November in Myrtle Beach. Catch fresh entertainment at Alabama Theatre, Asher Theatre, GTS Theatre, and more. This area is famous for a variety of entertainment and dinner theaters.

With flea markets, malls, outlets, specialty shops, and more, visitors can splurge on themselves for the holidays or knock out holiday gift lists easily in Myrtle Beach.

WE RECOMMEND: Enjoy outdoor shopping and delicious food at Broadway at the Beach.
