Best of Myrtle Beach (September 2010)

Myrtle Beach Area Fun for September

Summer's Over? ...Not a chance!

We've taken a vote at the beach and decided to officially extend Summer through September. So, don't pack away your bikini, sandals and tee shirts just yet. The weather is still wonderful, the warm surf is still perfect for swimming, and there's plenty to do at the beach. Plus, we're making it easier for you to stretch your weekend fun with our Vacation Special... FREE SUNDAYS! That's right - reserve Friday & Saturday at our regular low off-season rates and get Sunday (or Thursday) FREE.

When you get here you'll find lots of fun events. Some staff suggestions for September include:

35th Annual Atalaya Arts & Crafts Festival September 24th - 26th at Huntington Beach State Park... with fine art, quality crafts, low-country food specialties, and more.

Pawleys Island Wine Gala on the 24th - sampling wines from 80 renowned wineries and delicious hors d'oeuvres. Live entertainment, a silent auction and a complimentary dessert tasting are other highlights of this popular event.

and exciting concerts, too!

Fantastic Guest Performances & Concerts at the Alabama Theatre - featuring Ray Stevens on the 11th, Patty Loveless on the 18th and The Drifters, Coasters & Platters on the 25th.

A dynamite concert at the historic Myrtle Beach Train Depot on the 25th with The Last Waltz Ensemble performing the music of Bob Dylan and The Band. The intimate setting for this South by Southeast Music Feast accommodates only a few hundred so reservations are suggested.
