WHAT TO WEAR
When in Canada, it’s safe to assume a majority of the year will be spent dressed like this.
Not so in Myrtle Beach. Think light when you head south to visit the Grand Strand. Summer temperatures mean light clothing is all you’ll need, so a light jacket or sweater should do the job. A Myrtle Beach winter visit typically means, “bring a jacket”.
