Enjoy a hot day on the beach

Don’t try this up north. With daytime highs still in the mid-80s and lows in the upper 60s, you can have fun in the sun in Myrtle Beach in September. (Plus, there are only 6 rainy days on average in September here.) Balance your sun time with a rest in the shade – bring an umbrella. Wear a hat and sunscreen (reapply every 4 hours), pack cold drinks (including water) and snacks, and get out into the surf for one last time this summer.
