Economic Recovery Brings New Sense of Excitement In Myrtle Beach During Winter Months

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 – by Jeanne Kolenda
Myrtle Beach is easily one of the top vacation destinations on the east coast of the United States. Even though our year-round population is only about 28,000 people, that population easily swells to over 3 million during the summer months. Although things tend to quiet down a lot during the winter months, there are lots of new signs of hope that this trend is changing. Why? Because so many people are taking vacations in the off-season, where things are less expensive in destination locations like Myrtle Beach. Also, Myrtle Beach has beautiful weather pretty much all year, and although it’s cooler, it’s still mild enough to enjoy a winter vacation.

Another great sign is that condo rentals in Myrtle Beach are up about 8% from 2012 and that is a great sign that we are recovering from the economic recession. Because of that, lots of great deals are available in some beautiful condos and beach houses. The shops and vacation rental companies are eager to offer fantastic discounts to eager vacationers!

Many businesses in the area are responding to this turn of economic recovery by extending their operations throughout the winter months. Many area businesses are just happy to be taking advantage of the newly finished boardwalk downtown and the fact that people are still coming, even in the middle of January!

Normally, Myrtle Beach businesses go dark in the winter months, but now they are enjoying extending their operations well into theses winter months. It’s a shot in the arm for so many here in Myrtle Beach. The new boardwalk has a lot to do with the excitement. Not only is it beautiful, but it also has given the city some much-needed cosmetic enhancement for our visitors to enjoy. Taking a walk on the boardwalk has a whole new meaning now! And even in the winter months, the boardwalk is a hit.

Area Realtors are reporting lots of new reasons to be excited about the economic upswing. It used to be that winter in Myrtle Beach was only for golfers, but now, people all over the country are coming to enjoy our lovely city and all it has to offer, even in the winter. No longer are we a ghost town from Labor Day to Easter, but we are becoming a favorite destination all year round. The greatest part? It won’t break the bank to come enjoy a beautiful and affordable vacation with your whole family in sunny Myrtle Beach. Come discover why we are the top vacation destination on the east coast.
