Doldrums Be Gone: Stay for the Winter in Myrtle Beach

Oh, winter.

It won’t be long before we can see our breath, need to warm up the car, and can’t leave home without a coat. Maybe it’s happened already where you are. But there’s a great way to take a bite out of winter’s sting:

A long-term winter stay in Myrtle Beach

5 Reasons to Spend Your Winter on the Grand Strand

1. Relaxing atmosphere

There’s fun in the sun in summer in Myrtle Beach. The winter vibe is different, decidedly laid back, and casual. Plus, you’re not far from alluring spots such as Debordieu, North Myrtle Beach, and Pawleys Island.

2. Walks on the beach

Even if it’s too chilly to get in the water or build a sandcastle, it’s still great outside. Imagine a winter full of long walks on the beach, and time with loved ones or in solitude. You’ll have less competition for seashells, too.

3. The weather

It’s not work-on-my-tan weather, but it’s likely more pleasant than where you live! We’re talking T-shirts by day, sweatshirts by night, no ice scrapers needed. Sunny days and cooler nights invite you to sit on your balcony with a warm drink and enjoy the fresh air.

4. Wonderful birdwatching

The S.C. coast offers a wealth of opportunities and a huge array of species. Migratory waterfowl arrive in winter, including:

  • American wigeon
  • Green-winged teal
  • Lesser scaup
  • Ring-necked duck
  • Ruddy duck

Pro tip: Visit the Huntington Beach State Park jetty for the ultimate birding. Many unusual birds have been spotted here, including:

  • Black Guillemot
  • Harlequin duck
  • Purple sandpiper
  • Razorbill
