Winter in MB

So what is there to do in MB in the winter aside from golf? Too cold for the beach, I assume a lot of seasonal places will be closed. We are afraid we will be bored as we are not golfers.

Winter in Myrtle Beach is pretty cold. If you would like to be able to enjoy the beach, you might want to take a look at Guf Shores/Orange Beach, AL or Destin, FL, both of which have large snowbird populations (so everything is open). However, remember that Myrtle Beach is a pretty large town with many full time residents, not just a beach community, so I would imagine that many of the shows, shops, restaurants, and other attractions remain open throughout the winter. Myrtle Beach has many more of those types things to do than any other beach area we have been to.

How long will you be there ? I have 2 condos there and both are rented to guests who spend 3 or 4 months there , same guests every year. You can walk on the beach majority of days, but can be cold. Most resorts have ample indoor water activities, the live theaters are all open as well as the majority of restaurants, etc. There are some that are seasonal, but not the majority. Broadway at the Beach is a good days choice, as well as nearby Georgetown or Brookgreen Gardens. You will not be bored unless you are looking for mostly beach activities.

Most restaurants, shows, shopping areas and other attractions on the Grand Strand are open year-round. Children's amusement parks are the things that are most likely to be closed. If you are an adult, there are many things open to keep you busy. Even when it's chilly, people walk, run, sit and play on the beach. There are places to eat, shop and enjoy. My aunt used to say, "There's no such thing as boredom, only boring people."

To add on to what Nomis said, there are night clubs open also, if you're interested.
