Last Minute Myrtle Beach Vacation Tips

Tips for a Winter Weekend Getaway in Myrtle BeachOftentimes during the winter you may find yourself with an open weekend and no plans. Maybe you live just a few hours from Myrtle Beach and just want to get away.

Planning a last-minute weekend getaway to Myrtle Beach during the winter can be fun and easy. Unlike the summer when rooms are often booked full weeks in advance, the winter is usually much less busy and you are more likely to be able to book last minute and get a pretty good deal even on an oceanfront unit.

Often prices on rooms can go up as the time gets closer. But, no fear! During the winter rates are so low anyways that you won’t be paying too much more if you decide to book at the last minute.

Be sure to check out our specials page to see all the deals that are going on in Myrtle Beach and click here to do a room search. That way you can quickly compare prices for your last-minute trip and book online before heading out the door.

Another tip for taking a last minute trip to Myrtle Beach during the winter is to check out our events calendar to see what is going on during your trip. Sometimes there are comedy shows or special events taking place during the winter. Since they are going on during the off-season they are less likely to be sold out. Also, know which attractions are open ahead of time so you know exactly what your options are. Or, you can just wing it and spend the weekend relaxing and enjoying your resort’s indoor pools. Some hotels, such as Captain’s Quarters Resort and Landmark Resort even have indoor lazy rivers! Others enclose their outdoor lazy river, such as Forest Dunes Resort, to make for a warm and enjoyable amenity for wintertime guests.

Other popular wintertime beach activities include shell searching, so be sure to grab some sort of bag to use for your findings. Searching for sharks’ teeth is also a common winter activity at the beach, so be sure to be out on the lookout for those treasures as well!

So, you can see that you don’t need much planning for a quick last-minute getaway to Myrtle Beach. All you need to do is search for and compare rates online, book your room, pack up a few things then hop in the car and enjoy your drive to the beach.

Once you arrive you will be pleasantly surprised at how calming the beach can be during some of the dreariest winter months that you may be experiencing back home.

You’ll save money, the beach with brighten up your spirits and you will create memories that will last a lifetime by taking a last-minute trip to Myrtle Beach this winter!
