October water temperature at Myrtle Beach is still mid-70's. That's 10 degrees warmer than August in Maine where the French Canadians spend all day swimming in Speedos. LA, where you have the Beach Boys and the most recognized beach/surfing scene in the country, the water temperature rarely gets out of the 60's.

I didn't realize 75F was winter parka and a wool hat & gloves weather.

The empty Myrtle Beach at that time, even on weekends, says that view is not terribly common. And a high of 75 doesn't mean that is the temperature all day every day. That 57 means something as well.

What the empty Myrtle Beach at that time means mostly, speaking as someone who owns a second property there and goes in October sometimes, is that Myrtle Beach is a huge draw for families with school age kids because of all of the family friendly activities that it offers and the relatively low cost of vacationing there. You can't go on vacation when the kids are in school.

When we have been there in October the weather has been beautiful, for the most part. Temps still in the upper 70s and lots of sunshine but not the overbearing heat and humidity of July or August. No crowds so you don't have to choose between having dinner at 4 pm or waiting over an hour for a table, trying to find a spot on the beach that isn't already taken by someone's chair or towel, or having to fight the insane traffic that comes with the summer months.

The only down side I have ever seen with going to MB in October is that the days are shorter than in the warmer months. Other than that it is a great time to go. September after Labor Day when the kids are back in school is even better because it is a bit warmer and the days are a bit longer.

Even though we own property there, we have never been there in the middle of summer. I have seen pictures of how congested the beach is and heard horror stories of how crowded restaurants and attractions are and no thanks, not for us.

We are going to NYC for the first time in early May, by way of Gettysburg, Lancaster, and Philadelphia, PA and Dover, DE where we plan to attend a NASCAR race since DH is a fan.

We are going to Myrtle Beach in late September after all the families with school age kids are gone but the weather is still warm and sunny.

Noticed you are coming to Newfoundland. Newfoundland is picturesque! Hope you catch a boat tour or two to watch whales or look for ice bergs, Gros Morne National Park is amazing, the Viking sites and feasts are top notch...so much to see and do in Newfoundland...Hospitality is second to none! You will have a fantastic visit!

Doing a 3 week road trip with my 9 year old. First stop is Kentucky and then Alabama. We plan on visiting family in Florida and then we'll head back to Alabama and spend some time in Tennessee before we head back home.

As hectic and as crazy as it may sound.

Family of 5 vacation trip to NYC (two days), then fly to London (base camp stay due to family and cousins, and visit Stonehenge and Stratford-upon- Avon to see Shakespeare's home and John Harvard's home, who established Harvard University. - they both lived in the same subdivision), catch the train and spend a night and full day in Paris to see Eifel Tower and hopefully NOT too much shopping as my better half is planning a visit to Louis Vuitton- get the train back to London - catch the next day flight to Zurich and drive to Lauterbrunnen and Murren where we intended to stay 4 days in peace and serenity (my favorite part of the trip)

Back to London catch a flight to DC to stay a night in Arlington as my 14 year wants to dine in a specific restaurant - and then catch a flight home. Get a day rest and then, back to work.

I hope you already have plans to see rest of France again instead of thinking “ France is done”. There are plenty of peace and serenity in France itself, and they are better than Switzerland.
