Fall’s air is fresh, clean, and it puts me in a good mood to start fresh: a new wardrobe, a new diet and a new attitude. Gladly, I’m in the right place to take advantage of fall’s offerings as Myrtle Beach is an ideal place to enjoy fall, food and fashion.
The weather averages in the mid-70s when fall pays visit to Myrtle Beach. The rain seems to hold off to maybe a shower or two every few weeks and the sun shines seemingly perpetually. For that reason, golfers consider this time of year as perfect for hitting the links. Budget-conscious families take advantage of the perfect weather, shoulder-season resort rates and seasonal discounts at area attractions.
Locals know to keep a calendar handy to remind them of the dates of the many festivals that compete for attention when fall comes. From the Little River Shrimp Festival to the North Myrtle Beach Irish-Italian Festival to Pawleys Island Music Festival, every city along the Grand Strand has something to celebrate when the leaves begin to turn golden.
Fall’s fun times always include tasty foods which is a good thing because as fall sets in our appetites increase and it gives us a reason to eat more delicious comfort foods. That’s why we appreciate festival vendor’s offerings of sausages, seafood, barbeque, funnel cakes, ice cream and candied apples. Area restaurants recognize the special appetites that fall brings on and feature in-season ingredients in cozy dinner fares and hearty soups.
This time of year, pumpkin-flavored cakes, pies and nogs comfort the palates of patrons. Farmer’s markets offer up sweet potatoes, big fat pumpkins, long stalks of sugar cane, and sweet green peanuts. Fall certainly is a season for feasting. Contrary to most notions, all of Myrtle Beach doesn’t shut down in the fall. Instead, many restaurants stay open and ready to serve our off-season guests.
One hub of continual action is Market Common. The Market Common is a place where you can experience exceptional dining in a beautifully-designed village setting. From ice cream and pizza for the kids to one-of-a-kind restaurants, The Market Common is a great place to spend a beautiful fall day.
Besides an array of one-of-a-kind restaurants, the Market Common is the place for exceptional shopping. This year’s must-have fall fashions can be found in the shops of Market Common. Whether it’s bold new silhouettes, or experimentation with new materials, Myrtle Beach retailers are on the cutting edge of what trends are all the rave for Fall 2014.
Designer outlets and high-end boutiques bring the best of Paris and Milan to the shores of the Grand Strand. From shoes to dresses to gowns to coats, the newest and hottest items of fall beckon stylish shoppers to shop the Strand.
Fall, food and fashion makes Myrtle Beach a worthwhile visit.
