Fall officially arrived this week, but in Myrtle Beach the days continue to be warm and beautiful.
Locals call late September to mid-October the Secret Season. While Northern and Midwestern communities may be raking leaves and preparing for winter, Myrtle Beach is still enjoying much of what makes it a great vacation destination in the summer.
With schools back in session, there are uncrowded beaches, shorter lines at popular amusements and restaurants, and minimal traffic on key thoroughfares in Myrtle Beach.
It's an unhurried time that's perfect for sunbathing on the beach, swimming in the still-warm ocean or hotel pool, fishing, golf and shopping.
In this Secret Season, gentle breezes blow through the palm trees along Celebrity Circle at Broadway at the Beach. Sunny afternoons become the perfect time to stroll down the wide walkways that wind by a wide variety of Broadway shops.
Refreshing and relaxing, fall days are ideal for a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner at one of the many Broadway restaurants. Several overlook Lake Broadway where watchers are entertained by flotillas of colorful ducks, curious fish and other lakeside friends.
It's easy to find a seafood special at Broadway in the fall. On Saturday, September 24, oyster lovers will be heading to the Original Shucker's Raw Bar for an all-you-can-eat oyster roast for just $15.99. From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. you can eat your fill while you catch a college football game. Or make Shucker's your choice for NFL action on Sunday, September 25, when shrimp and chicken wings will be 50 cents each all day.
The Secret Season is also a great time for food festivals at Broadway. Mark your calendar for the Omar Shrine Smoke On The Beach BBQ Competition on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. Whether you sign up to compete or just come to eat, don't miss these two days of good times and great food!
From fundraising events like the Out of Darkness Walk (October 8) to the bonanza of sauces and pasta dishes at the Sons of Italy Festival (October 8 & 9) to the excitement of classic car shows like the Cruisin' The Beach Car Show (October 13 – 15), Broadway is the place for fun in the fall. Check the Broadway at the Beach events calendar to find details about these great events.
