Best Time to Fly to Myrtle Beach

Peak Season

Winter and spring are the peak tourist seasons. Families flock here to escape the winter cold and students crash on the beaches during Spring Break for a little break from the books. Myrtle Beach trips and accommodations are a bit pricier during this time, but you are likely to find a flight and a hotel room on the strip or on the course.

Off Season

The summers are hot and don't draw the same crowds as spring. Fall is cooler and the city area is quieter. This is the best time to find cheap flights to Myrtle Beach and discounted hotels and resorts.

Myrtle Beach is a popular beach destination and many major airlines service it. Check out our guide to airlines that fly to Myrtle Beach for more information.

Why you should take a flight to Myrtle Beach

Situated along the sandy white coast of South Carolina is famed resort destination Myrtle Beach. The once charmed and quiet beachfront area has transformed itself into a mega entertainment center for families, students, golfers and spa-goers. Book airline tickets to Myrtle Beach and take a trip back in time when boardwalks provided beachfront entertainment and waterslides and amusement parks provided the perfect activity for families. Spring Breakers hop Myrtle Beach flights every spring to party on the beaches while golfers book their Myrtle Beach vacation months in advance to secure their spot on the green. Cheap flights to Myrtle Beach can be found during the off-season -- usually summer and fall -- when few snowbirds need to escape the winter cold. This is the best time to take in Myrtle Beach's beautiful natural scenery, spend time at the spa or go a few rounds on the course. Whatever you're reason for booking Myrtle Beach vacations, this South Carolina resort town is the perfect family fun spot.

Myrtle Beach climate

Myrtle Beach weather is dictated by the ocean breezes. Summers are hot and winters are cool and comfortable. The influence of the warm currents of the gulf stream just offshore ensures that this holiday strip is warm enough for fun in the sun most of the year. It does rain suddenly, and heavily, particularly during summer, but the sandy soil allows for quick drainage and even the emerald green golf courses are ready for action again as soon as the showers let up.
