Default Weather Temps in late March Early April

Hello all, my family (including a 9 & 11 year old) are planning a little vacation to Mrytle Beach this Spring. We will be there either the last week of March or first week of April. I realize the ocean will probably not be warm enough for us then. But I'm wondering if it will be warm enough to enjoy outdoor pools at the area's hotels and resorts. I see some of the resorts also have indoor pools. But it sure would be nice to enjoy some of those outdoor water park like set ups. So I'd love your comments on swimming in outdoor pools that time of year and if the pools are normally heated there.

Also, our main objective is to go some where that the adults can relax and the kids can enjoy the pool. We don't need high end Disney like amusement. Just looking for a good family place to relax. If you have a favorite I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks for your help!

We used to always go to MB the third of fourth week of March when our kids were younger because their school always had an early spring break. Generally, it was never actually warm enough to use the outdoor pools. The place where we stayed on those trips had a kind of building made of portable glass panels that they would enclose their outdoor lazy river in until at least late April, so we used that, but the outdoor pool was never an option. In fact, one year I can remember being in MB during the last week of March and getting up and turning on The Weather Channel to see what the temp was and it was 39 degrees at about seven in the morning. That was probably the exception, but during that particular trip it was chilly the entire week, with highs only reaching the upper 50s.

I think it's kind of hit or miss what kind of weather you will get in late March and early April, and I don't remember outdoor swimming ever being an option, but perhaps others will tell you otherwise.

Either way, I hope you have a wonderful vacation.

This winter has been warmer (10-15 degrees warmer) than average. It's been in the 60s since Jan. so you've got a good shot of seeing 70s in March. It was 69 yesterday fer chrissake!

You guys are experiencing a warmer than normal winter, though, aren't you, just like most of the rest of the country? I live in Michigan and we have had no snow to speak of this entire winter and temps have hovered anywhere from 10-20 degrees above normal all winter long. I'm loving it here and I'm loving it there, since we own a condo in MB and it has remained rented all winter so far.

Yes, this is a warmer then normal winter. The last one I remember like this is 1997 or thereabouts.
I have been waiting patiently all this time.....
I keep thinking..."when winter comes" and not " winter is here."
