January is a beautiful month to come enjoy Myrtle Beach. The low winter sun provides for spectacular sunsets, beautiful sunrises, and mild temperatures that will make you forget the freezing cold awaiting you back home. While the city does slow down some in January, there are still plenty of events going on to keep you entertained when you’re not watching the waves crash into the shore.
