May Stays
Posted by Hope | Wednesday, May 9, 2018

They say April showers bring May flowers, but that didn’t seem to be the case this year. April brought some chilly temps, but thankfully, May is here and warming up pretty nicely! The beaches have been sunny and folks have been taking advantage of the pleasant weather. It was beginning to feel a new season had developed this year; “spinter”! While it was supposed to be warming up the effects of snow and ice seemed to linger. Hopefully, that is all behind us now and we can focus on fun in the sun!

Perhaps you already know but May is a busy month in Myrtle Beach. We have so much going on this time of the year, it’s hard to keep up like the World Famous Blue Crab Festival, Harley Spring Bike Week, Atlantic Beach Bike Fest and so much more. May is probably one of the best times to be here except for the summer when the beach is ready for that much anticipated vacation.

But just to give you an idea of what May is like at the beach, we have provided a few of the events below that you just don’t want to miss out on.
