Spring Break in Myrtle Beach covers several weeks. Whenever students, high school and college, get their spring break. It varies not only from state to state, but also county to county within a state. One of my grandchildren is out the week of Easter, the other is not out until the 3rd week of April. Myrtle Beach draws spring breakers from at least six states, maybe more.

None of the SC beaches are major spring break destinations for kids traveling without their families. The water and the air are too cold to attract the wet tee-shirt crowd!

I definitely beg to differ, as Myrtle Beach is where we always went for Spring Break in college and for grad week in high school. We never cared how cold it was, but then again we didn't really see or participate in any wet tee shirt contests either. Both times were always packed. March-May is a big time for college/high school spring breaks. May is when most of the large universities are down. I used to remember the set weeks when certain schools were down on spring break, but it's been awhile :) June is probably your busiest time before the family vacations begin because of high school graduations. As nanajayne stated, there are a ton of high school grads that swarm the beach area from multiple states. It was fun when I was that age, but now 10 years later, I prefer to either go to North Myrtle or just stay away during June. I hope this was some kind of useful!

A lot of people from Ontario come down for March break. I have worked for an elementary school for 26 years and March break has always included St. Patrick's Day. Other boards may have different times for their break.
