Myrtle Beach Spring Activities

Activities for spring mid-term break and Easter weekend

The countdown’s begun! Spring is just around the corner and the days are getting longer, sunnier, and warmer. It’s almost time to pack for a well-deserved trip, and Myrtle Beach is the perfect spring break destination to visit.

For 2024, spring break goes from mid-March through mid-April. Because school breaks vary county-by-county, visitors vacation at different times to enjoy a more family-friendly vibe to avoid the busier summer crowds.

So, are you ready for your 2024 spring break vacation? We’ve put together a list of events and activities on the Grand Strand so you can start planning your spring break getaway.
