They say time flies when you’re having fun, which is why we operate at warp speed here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. With so many good times to be had on the Grand Strand, spring will be here before you know it – and you will be more than ready to soak up some sun, fun and surf after a long, cold winter's nap.
That's why it's important not to get caught off guard when spring finally does roll around by planning your spring vacation to Myrtle Beach early.

So pick your dates, round up your crew, reserve your room at Long Bay Resort, and start counting down the days to the ultimate spring getaway to Myrtle Beach. Here are a few things you can look forward to that will keep you going until the arrival of the spring season:
* March: The spring tourism season literally hits the ground running during the first week of March for the 21st Annual Myrtle Beach Marathon (March 2-3). Attracting more than 5,000 participants for the 26.2-mile event, the half-marathon, the 5K and the Fun Run, this event offers runners great oceanfront views on an easy, flat course, as well as a great time before and after the start/finish. The Grand Strand also goes green for St. Patrick's Day on March 17 with the 30th Annual North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival. March is also the start of the spring break invasion for families looking for some downtime from school and work, and Long Bay has everything you need for a fun and relaxing retreat on the resort property.
* April: Easter falls on April 1 next year, so the weeks before and after are traditionally some of the busiest and most entertaining on the Grand Strand. Golf fans are in luck with the 24th Annual Monday After The Masters celebrity golf tournament at Barefoot Golf Resort on April 9, when big names from the worlds of movies, music and sports will swing the sticks for charity. And for folks who like to shuffle their feet to the beat of old beach music, the 24th Annual SOS Spring Safari held April 20-29 attracts shaggers from all over the country to come to the beach for some live music and dancing on Ocean Drive in North Myrtle Beach. April is also the unofficial start of the spring golf season, when thousands bring their clubs to test their skills on the Grand Strand's 80-plus courses.
* May: Spring starts to feel a lot like summer on the Grand Strand in May, but there's still plenty of time and good weather to beat the big rush. The ocean temperatures rise for some fun in the waves, the water parks open their doors and turn on the slides and attractions, and the crowds begin to flock to all the attractions, shopping, dining and nightlife Myrtle Beach has to offer. The month’s main event is the 78th Annual Myrtle Beach Bike Week Spring Rally (May 11-20), and the month closes out with various Memorial Day events.
Summer is getting into full swing at that point, so be sure to book your spring getaway early – and get ready for a fun experience that will warm the body, mind and soul at Long Bay Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront.
