Myrtle Beach for the winter

Looking for a place to winter. Myrtle Beach has come to mind. Has anyone wintered in Myrtle Beach? How is the weather in January, February and March?
If you have wintered in Myrtle Beach could you recomend some campgrounds. We normally winter in Florida but with the price of fuel we are trying to stay a little closer to home in Pa. We will be staying in a 38 foot motorhome.

Sounds like a good plan but as it will be cooler (likely) there than Florida, will you really save that much? The furnace will use more propane, diesel etc. The difference may not be that great and you will be missing out on joining your friends that you meet every year. Just a thought.

Here is a link to Weatherspark.com which gives climate data almost anywhere: https://weatherspark.com/y/20111/Ave...es-Temperature

It sure isn't beach weather Jan-Mar.

Carolina winters are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. I have golfed in 70deg weather in Jan, and also shoveled snow. If it were me, I’d head to Florida for a sure thing.

Several years ago I decided I was done with snow. I was looking for the closest distance to the northeast to get temperatures that would be dependably comfortable. I didnít feel Myrtle Beach was warm enough. I have two groups of friends who moved permanently from the northeast to the Myrtle Beach area to escape winter. Both are disappointed that winter weather was not what they were expecting.

I ended up in Georgia and Iím happy with my decision. It not the hot of Florida but definitely comfortable, especially if you like outdoor activities like golf, hiking, biking. January is the coldest and then temps start to gradually warm up. Iíd say temps range from 50 to 70, occasionally going lower or higher.

If we're not traveling, we winter here every year. As was pointed out, it is a mix in January and February, we also have our fair share of snow birds. We d0o get a little snow every few years but never anything that required a shovel.

Many campgrounds and one of our state parks welcome winter snow birds.

Weather wise, we will have a few nights that will dip below freezing. I usually put away my flip flops in November about the same time I bring out my long pants. Foremost of the winter I wear sweaters and and light jackets.

Look at barefoot RV resort in North Myrtle Beach. They have a winter right I believe that runs from November 1 to February 28 and it’s like $2380 plus electricity. N Myrtle is fairly quiet in the winter months

Are you in a costal area of Georgia or more inland? Do you think one is better than the other temperature/weather wise?
Thanks.

Hi!
I canít speak about inland Georgia, as Iím along the coast - the area they call the Golden Isles. Iím about an hour north of Jacksonville, an hour south of Savannah, not too far off of I-95.
