Love the beach? How about motorcycles? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then a visit to the Grand Strand during the Myrtle Beach Bike Week Fall Rally is sure to have you riding high. Set for October 2-8 this year, the week’s events and festivities are expected to attract thousands of motorcyclists and bike enthusiasts to Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas. With plenty of rides planned along our beautiful stretch of the Carolina Coast, and with many area businesses joining in on all the fun, this is one week that no gearhead will want to miss!

One of the most popular things to do during the Fall Rally is to go on great rides with fellow bike enthusiasts, ranging from short rides just to take in the beautiful views of the local beaches and waterways, to longer ones that turn into day trips. Many riders choose to go on one or two longer trips – or as many riders call them, “day-cations” – during the week and visit some of the appealing towns nearby. A very popular day-cation destination is just over 2 hours south of Myrtle Beach – the beautiful and historic town of Charleston. While riding down, you will see some beautiful Lowcountry landscapes, and when walking around the city of Charleston, you can bond with your fellow riders while taking in one of the South’s most historic cities.

Whether you are getting ready for or coming back from a ride, it is important to keep your stomach full with some of the most delicious food that Myrtle Beach has to offer. During Fall Rally week, some of the area’s best biker hangouts – from the ever-popular Harley-Davidson dealership to local favorites such as the Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet – will be going out of their way to accommodate visiting motorcyclists. Visit the Beaver Bar every morning from 8 a.m. to noon to enjoy their discounted buffet breakfast , then head over to Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson with some new biker friends and chat about your rides. From there, extend the biker bonding over drinks and dinner or during happy hour.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in a location that is convenient to all of the festivities and biking hot spots, look no further than the Ocean Reef Resort. This oceanfront property with a range of accommodation types and a long list of on-site amenities is the perfect place to stay. It offers a team of friendly faces to accommodate you, rooms with gorgeous views of the white-sand beaches, and a prime location that’s just a short ride from the center of town!

Whether you own your own motorcycle or just love checking out bikes, from the trips to the food, the Myrtle Beach Bike Week Fall Rally is an event you will surely not want to miss. Pair the week’s festivities with a great stay at the Ocean Reef Resort, and you’re sure to have a great time on the Grand Strand!
