Get more sunshine
Lack of exposure to sunlight is one of the leading causes of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) While it might not be bikini weather, winter at the beach still offers more opportunities to soak up some sunshine and improve your mood! Not only will the additional sunlight fight off the winter blues, the ocean air and sound of the sea has also been proven to have psychological benefits.
Stay in shape
While the sub-zero temperatures in other parts of the country might deter many from working out, the cooler but mild weather in Myrtle Beach is perfect for getting active. You can go for a jog on the beach, or take a swim in colder water (which is actually very good for you). If swimming isn't for you, you can find basketball games to join and sand volleyball courts year round.
All the activities without the crowds
Myrtle Beach is wonderful any time of year, but it certainly is nice to explore the town without the bustling summer crowds. Many of the loved attractions including the SkyWheel and Ripley's Aquarium. You can also knock out some of your holiday shopping at our outlet malls and boardwalk stores. Add in shorter waits at your favorite restaurants and less crowded golf courses and you've got a month of excitement planned out.
