Myrtle Beach may be a hot spot for tourists during the summer for the beaches, restaurants, attractions, and golf – but the ideal weather hits around September. Or, maybe it’s October. The temperatures are warm enough to enjoy the beach, and the local events heat up – especially if you’re a food and wine lover! Here are the top 10 things to do in Myrtle Beach this fall…
Good Taste Guide to Fall in Myrtle Beach
date nights, festivals, wine dinners
We’ve rounded up all the best things to do this fall in Myrtle Beach if you love food and wine. Follow along on our social media channels for more!
01. Sparkling + Seafood
Sit underneath sparkly jellyfish lights at the Hook and Barrel bar and enjoy an Emmolo Merlot or a glass of Veuve Cliquot with the crispy fish bites and the savory figs & brie. (No need to choose, just order both.)
03. Crafts + Craft Beer
Head to Brookgreen Gardens for the Harvest Home Festival – it’s fun for the whole family – pumpkin decorating, hay rides, scarecrow stuffing, and hay piles for the kids, and craft beer + good food for the adults.
4. Wine Dinner
Make a reservation for one of Ruth’s Chris Tastemaker wine dinners, which features fine wines paired with chef-prepared courses.
5. Rodney Strong + Raccoons
Order a bottle of Rodney Strong Symmetry and sit on the back deck next to the fire at Joe’s Bar and Grill and watch the raccoon run for entertainment. (fact: more glasses of wine, more entertaining raccoons become.)
Oktoberfest at Market Common is always a blast with a German band, plenty of beer, and great German food. You’ll discover a serious love for red cabbage and new beers.
7. Gordon Biersch Seasonal Menu
Speaking of Oktoberfest, head to Gordon Biersch for their seasonal beer and menu selection which never disappoints. Pretzels with special beer mustards, red cabbage, spaetzel, pork chops… it’s worth the drive to Market Common in October.
09. Dog Happy Hour
Have happy hour on the beach with your pooch: dogs are allowed on the beaches after 5pm in the off-season.
10. Cool Cocktails
Head to Myrtle Beach’s hipster spot for cocktails and foodie food. Strong Waters cocktail hour game is strong (get it?) and stands out as one of the best restaurants in Grand Strand for a day date. Check them out on instagram for the monthly speakeasy secret password for a deal 🥂
