Wintered Out!

Who is tired of winter?  Cold snaps hitting all over the USA with freezing rains and snow not to mention frigid temps everywhere!  Where is one to go to forget about the frostbite?
To planning a summer vacation in sunny Myrtle Beach, that’s where!  Visualize yourself heading to where the sun is hot, the water is perfect and the sand is therapeutic to your feet!  A definite cure to the winter blues!
And if just planning your summer getaway isn’t enough, think of all the events going on you can look forward to!  First, Myrtle Beach is going country with the first ever Carolina Country Music Fest going on June 5th, 6thand 7th.   This 3-day festival will be held at the former Myrtle Beach Pavilion offering a unique blend of A-list national and local entertainers.
This country music festival will host 30+ of the industry’s biggest stars, including national recording artists: Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Big & Rich and Hunter Hayes. Also with Rascall Flatts, Cole Swindell and Colt Ford, just to name a few…PLUS new artists are being added daily!  Not to mention this much-anticipated jamboree will coincide with the Coastal Uncorked Food, wine, beer, and spirits festival at Plyer Park just 2 blocks away going on June 1st- 6th.  What are you waiting for?
It is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!  But if you are not able to get away the first part of June, there is still hot summer nights planned along Myrtle Beach’sBoardwalk kicking off in June with the Kids Carnival and continuing with nightly events continuing well into August.
If the Boardwalk along the beach is not your forte, then there are also the activities planned at the famous Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing including their fabulous display of fireworks nightly.


We can’t forget the Market Commons in the mix with their scheduled events in Valor Park for those hot summer nights as well!  Last but not least, a Myrtle Beach Golf vacation is the perfect way to forget about Winter. So are you still needing a visual to escape the snow until you can get away?  Just call or email us and we will help you envision the perfect vacation and get it booked so we can see you on the beach!

Myrtle Beach Winters

Calling all Snowbirds!  Are you getting tired of the cold yet?  Have you had your fill of snow with still more to come?  After last week’s blizzard, I would think many bags are being packed to head to the warm south to thaw out and enjoy our warm temperatures! Well, then you need to check out Myrtle Beach winters!  We are officially a year round destination with mild winter temperatures. Last week, we were enjoying mid 60’s temps!
A few years back, Myrtle Beach focused mainly on the summer season.  When the winter set in and school started, restaurants would close and shops would operate on winter hours only.  Basically, everyone took the winter off except for a few people that trekked out of the cold up north and onto the beach to escape the freezing weather. 
Each year, this group of snowbirds that flocked to the south grew larger making Myrtle Beach the year round place to be.  With over 1500 restaurants, deep sea fishing, great golf, and too many shopping and theater attractions to count how could we resist welcoming our northern neighbors into our local festivities? 
More and more vacationers and retirees are discovering how enjoyable it is to visit the Grand Strand during the fall, winter and early spring.  Many of Booe Realty’s Myrtle Beach properties are available by the month at greatly affordable prices from October through March of each year.
So many events and festivals have been implemented into the winter season just for the many individuals that look to escape the snow, sleet and ice.  Such as Taste of the Marshwalk that takes place in Murrells Inlet each February, or Ripley’s Family Fun Run that is now an annual event at Broadway at the Beach.  For the long distance runners, why not try out the Myrtle Beach Marathon?
Also, many Valentine’s Day events are also sprinkled along the Grand Strand for our many snowbirds.  Not to mention the many oysters festivals that take place for various locals.  These too have now grown considerably and gladly extend a warm hand to the many snowbirds that look forward to these events each year just as the locals do.
Ready to come to Myrtle Beach yet?  Need more…. How about March events? The North Myrtle Beach St Patrick’s Day parade is very popular with our locals and winter residents alike. We have a number of Irish pubs that may the “wearin of the green” an event that lasts for days.
The Grand Strand always extends a welcome to our northern neighbors from Canada! We even see some Northern friends join the polar bear plunges that sprinkle the Strand during winter. Many places offer “Can-Am Days” and specials Canadian get-together events.
Business is booming and blooming.  Far from being a winter wasteland – the Grand Strand has turned into a winter wonderland. Imagine Camellias and other flowers that actually bloom in our “winter” season.
What to wear?  While we have occasional cold snaps, most winter days, you can just pull on a sweatshirt or light jacket to enjoy the salt air. Save your winter boots and heavy coats for when YOU will visit your up-north friends. Better yet, invite them down here to visit you- and escape the frosty weather! We can surely find them a nice place to stay.
The Grand Strand is 4 seasons – for 4 reasons – weather, friendly people, lots to do, and beach livin’. We look forward to helping you LIVE THE DREAM”.
So, Stop what you are doing and head south to sunny and warm Myrtle Beach.  Stay a few days, possibly a week, or move down and become a local! 
We’ll see you on the Beach!

Yuletide Greetings

It seems we have flown right through the Thanksgiving Holiday and now Christmas is right around the corner.  Yet there is STILL so much going on in Myrtle Beach, that the time is just right for a quick trip.

I would like to say a word to the real estate investors out there. As you know, times are tough but getting better, especially in the realestate market.
