After a long, hot Summer, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all excited that Fall is finally here! Although it doesn’t quite feel like Fall just yet, we can say with certainty that cooler temperatures are on the way. As the air becomes cool and crisp and the leaves begin to transition to vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, we are surrounded by all the wonderful sights and smells of the Fall season.
At Seaside Grove, October happens to be one of our favorite months of the year. There’s no shortage of fun to be had this month between all of the festive events and activities taking place out in the community, as well as right here at Seaside Grove.
Be sure to check out the Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest on October 11-12 at the Grand Park at Market Common where you can get your fill of authentic German cuisine, seasonal beers, live entertainment and other fun activities for you, your family, and friends. You’ll really be feeling the Fall vibes when you spend the day at Thompson Farm and Nursery. Here, you’ll find attractions such as a pumpkin patch, corn maze, farm animals, hay wagon ride, kids play area, and plenty more activities for all ages! Watch the fireworks over Lake Broadway for the Halloween Fireworks Extravaganza, beginning at 8:00 pm on October 31st at Broadway at the Beach.
Of course, there’s more to Fall than just enjoying the many seasonal activities offered in your area. You should take this time to prepare for the upcoming Winter months and the colder weather that accompanies them. Seaside Grove has some tips to help prepare your apartment for the colder weather to keep you and your family warm this Fall/Winter without breaking the bank. Reverse your ceiling fans- this helps because it pulls the cool air up to the ceiling and then disperses the warmer air throughout the room. Use draft stoppers on your doors- these are quick and easy to put in place or remove and help to prevent a draft of cold air from entering into your apartment from under the door. Install insulated curtains- these help to keep the cold air out and the warm air in your apartment. Use a dehumidifier- these are helpful during the colder months because they reduce the discomfort of the dry air as well as increasing the efficiency of your heating system. Before the temperatures get too cold, turn on your heat to test it out and make sure it’s working properly. If you experience any issues, let maintenance know so the issue can be resolved before the cold weather arrives!
Enjoy your Fall season! We’re looking forward to seeing you and your neighbors at our upcoming events this month. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what events we’re planning in the months to come!
