MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The tranquil, coastal destination of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, topped the list of FlipKey’s best places to visit during the fall 2014 season for its affordable accommodations, less-crowded beaches and attractions, and gorgeous weather. The accolade comes as the Myrtle Beach area kicks off a fall campaign designed to highlight’s the area’s “best kept secret” – it’s beautiful fall season – along with 60 additional secrets of little-known attractions, interesting facts and unique stories from across the area’s 60 miles of coastline.
FlipKey based its findings on the nightly price for properties on its website and uncovered that travelers can save tons by visiting destinations like Myrtle Beach during the months of September, October and November while also experiencing less crowds.
“Prices begin to plummet after Labor Day and not only can you find great deals during the shoulder season, but the amount of vacationers is substantially less. You might end up having the beach all to yourself,” said Eric Horndahl, FlipKey’s Vice President of Marketing. “Myrtle Beach is our number one pick for shoulder season travel this fall, where you’re still looking at temperatures in the low 80s during September, which is plenty warm for sun, sand and beach activities.”
Locals from the Myrtle Beach area have long appreciated the beauty and warmth of the fall season, which is why VisitMyrtleBeach.com is choosing to highlight this season and its marvels to potential visitors. The campaign, called “The Secret’s Out: 60 More Days of Summer,” officially launches on September 1 and will include digital integration, social media engagement and television advertising.
