Picking the Right Time to Visit

The refreshing reality of visiting Litchfield Beach is that no matter when you arrive to enjoy time away from the daily hustle, you won’t be faced with daunting crowds! The destination is designed to be a place of comfort, calm, and tranquility on the coast complete with gated communities and opportunities to unwind at your own pace. That said, visitors will find that summertime numbers are typically higher due to the fact more travelers have time off from work and school to get out and enjoy a vacation. For the ultimate quiet getaway to Litchfield Beach, consider booking your stay in a shoulder season like the fall. This brings visitor numbers down even further with school back in session. The temperature this time of year won’t be its summertime high, but it’s still comfortable enough to stroll the sand and enjoy the views without worry. There will also be ample opportunities to get out and make the most of the area walking and hiking trails like the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway. You’ll also find it easy to book your reservations at your favorite area seafood stops when you’ve worked up an appetite!
