The Secret Season

The Secret Season

Brookgreen-pumpkin Barefoot Vacations, Inc.

September through April has often been called the “secret season” along the Grand Strand. Many of our visitors come to stay for weeks or months at a time… some to escape cold winters, some to simply escape!

Our golf courses, fishing piers, charter fishing boats and many other attractions are open year round. The Myrtle Beach Convention Center always hosts exciting events and activities during that time. The live entertainment theaters feature wonderful Christmas shows and other great offerings. And shopping has never been better with the recent completion of a large regional shopping mall to complement several other shopping centers, factory outlet complexes and popular area retail and dining attractions Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing.

Best of all, our rental prices are lower than peak season and the weather is wonderful. Come enjoy our secret season, but sshhh… don’t tell anybody. It’s a secret!

Here’s just a brief list of some of the attractions and activities you can enjoy during our secret season. Consult the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce for a complete, up-to-date listing of monthly events.
