Myrtle Beach is not just a beach. It's known as The Grand Strand. It's a entertainment, fishing, sporting and amusement destination with 60 miles of white sandy beach's from Little River to Winyah Bay. And even though I love that beach, I hardly get a chance to sink my toes in it because there's just so many fun things to do in Myrtle. Mustang Week has a lot to keep us busy for the whole week. But for those members like myself who want to make the week both a YMR/ Mustang Week Show and a personal beach vacation, here are a few ideas highlighted below of fun things to do in Myrtle Beach.

Two really nice Casino Yachts. Plenty of slot machines and five different live table games. All you can eat Buffett. It's worth it just for the ride out into the ocean on a nice boat.  Scroll down this link for a short video...

Amusements/ Attractions...

September is the heart of golf season in Myrtle Beach. Throw the sticks in the trunk. The area is home to more than 100 golf courses....

Myrtle is famous for it's many dinner and non dinner shows...

Dining Myrtle has more restaurants than you can shake a stick at. Last count was 246 by Tripadvisor...

Shop till you drop. If you try to shop at all these places you will drop dead...

Complete list of things to do in Myrtle Beach...

A quote from the Official Mustang Week website;
Mustang Week is different from any other event in the country.  It's not merely a show.  If you attend all the scheduled events, you will see that Mustang Week is an “experience” that can be rivaled by no other weekend show.  Where else can you combine a beach vacation with all kinds of driving events and shows?  Only at Mustang Week!  (end quote)

Below is the Mustang Week Event Schedule for Sept. 4th-8th 2018.
Start & End times are listed for each individual event on each day.
There may be some M/W sponsor side events later. As those come about I will post them here in this thread.
As always YMR members may choose as few or as many events in which to participate in.
There will be no exclusive YMR events other than these planned for the daytime hours of Mustang Week

The folks that run Mustang Week were really using their heads when they picked the week of Sept. 4-9th to move the Mustang Week show to. All of the attractions in the area are still open including a limited schedule at Myrtle Waves water park. The only thing that's missing are the endless long lines everywhere you go because the wild collage kids and all other schools are back in session. And most attractions drop their prices after school starts back. The weather in the first week of Sept. is the best weather of the year to visit Myrtle Beach. The air temp has dropped for the high 90s and low 100s of July to the mid 80s. But the water temp is still the same as July and August the two highest months of the year. It's the best time of the year for a beach vacation and a swim in Myrtle Beach.

Scroll down on this link below from AccuWeather for the month of September to see a calendar with the last 6 days of August and the month of September air temperatures. From Sept. 4-9th the daily average temp is 86 daytime / 67 nightly 

Scroll down this link below from The National Weather Service to see a chart of the September water temperatures in Myrtle Beach. Notice that the water temp for the first week in Sept. is the same as in the two warmest water temperature months of the year July and August, 83 degrees.

Our Host Hotel is the Grande Shores. The Grande Shores is the same ocean front hotel that we stayed in back when I was coordinating the Mustang Week Event. When I was first looking for a hotel back then I wanted to get a place with as many room options and price ranges as I could find for our members to chose from. That's why i selected The Grande Shores. It has condos, rooms with efficiency's/kitchenettes and standard hotel rooms with small fridge. It was a nice place then and per my visit to the property in February of this year, it's even a nicer place now. Since we last stayed there, every room in the hotel as been upgraded with new beds, carpet and new furniture. Pools and other areas have been upgraded as well. We will have our same preferred roped off parking area in the underground garage close to the elevator. Also a water hose just outside the parking area to make sure our ponies stay clean and fresh. The Grande Shores has great views and gives our members the Myrtle Beach ocean front experience at a good price.

The Grande Shores is currently rated #22 out of 207 hotels in Myrtle Beach by TripAdvisor on 3/16/2018

Good news gang, Mustang Week is back on the menu. Now that it's been moved to a little cooler temps in the 80s we're going to restart our clubs participation with the biggest Mustang event on the east coast. No more temps in the high 90s and low 100s. The summer congestion is gone and prices are more affordable for hotels and entertainment throughout the Grand Strand. The host hotel will be posted this week, dinner and other events will be posted in weeks to come. Kevin wanted a big event towards the end of the show season. With Mustang Week being moved to September, it worked out perfect for a season bookend show. Fun in the sun is back.... ;D
