Samantha Norton's avatar By Samantha Norton Follow me on Google+

Contrary to what you might believe, there is plenty happening along the Grand Strand this November. Temperatures have started to wind down, but are still mild this time of the year, so when you’re staying at one of Vacation Myrtle Beach’s resorts you’ll probably be looking for things to keep yourself and the family occupied that don’t necessarily involve spending a whole day on the beach (though temperatures might be warm enough for you to do just that). Here are some of the fun and enjoyable things you can do in Myrtle Beach during the month of November.

Carolina Beach Music Awards | November 8th – 12th | Alabama Theatre

The Carolina Beach Music Awards are back! This is the big music event of the year in Myrtle Beach, kicking off with a pre-party on Wednesday, November 8th at 8 p.m. The whole week is one of non-stop partying, and includes performances by local artists all week long.
