Things That are Open in Myrtle Beach This Fall

The mask is the first thing – don’t leave home without it. But other than that, and some social distancing, there’s plenty to do when you visit Myrtle Beach.

People here – visitors and residents – have taken precautions from the start to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Your favorite restaurants and sites are open, as long as you wear a mask. Grand Strand businesses did a great job of adjusting to the new normal, altering business plans to keep serving the community – and helping those in need when they could. That’s a big reason you can still visit Myrtle Beach with a few safety tips this fall.

Come enjoy the sunshine and cool autumn nights in Myrtle Beach. As always, check online for the latest updates to the Center for Disease Control guidelines.
