Myrtle Beach in January

The winter months in Myrtle Beach still offers tourists a plethora of activities and for a lot of visitors it’s one of the best times to visit the Grand Strand.  Most of the attractions will be open, but the hours may be shorter than during peak season so if there’s something in particular your’e wanting to do call ahead to verify what hours they are open.  The crowds are much lower in January, as are the temperatures.  Keep a jacket or windbreaker handy, especially for walking on the beach. Even though the temps are cooler it’s usually almost always sunny with clear skies and you’ll find that people are still able to enjoy outdoor activities.  If a weather front comes through, you may have a rainy day, but in January that’s not so likely.  With average air temps of 56 degrees during the month of January there are still plenty of opportunities for fishing, golfing, shopping or just shell hunting on the beach.
