September typically marks the end of days spent with your toes in the sand and soaking in the summertime sunshine. If the idea of trading your bathing suit for a sweater isn’t appealing, then not to fear: while temperatures around the rest of the country are starting to dip, Southerners are still lingering in the sun.
The end of summer marks the beginning of stellar deals in beach towns across the South. With average highs in the 70s and 80s in September and October, it’s still a good time to pack up the kids and sneak in one final beach vacation of the year. Not only can you score some great hotel deals for less than $100 per night, but you won’t have to wind your way through the typical summertime crowds.
A few great family-friendly beach towns where you can nab an oceanfront room for less than $100 are Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Jekyll Island, Georgia; and Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Take a peek at Travelzoo’s last-minute Atlanta and Carolinas offerings for even more deals.
