Celebrating the Holidays at the Beach

It’s time to get into the spirit of the season! If you are like many, every day life keeps you busy and sometimes it is difficult to get “merry.”

Myrtle Beach can assist with that problem. It is a great place to spend some time “away.” Listen to the ocean waves, feel the salt air, and just...breathe. Once you have experienced an oceanfront “re-boot,” you’ll be more prepared to enter the holiday state of mind!

Holiday Entertainment

Myrtle Beach can help get you in the mood for Christmas and the coming holiday celebrations! Our shows and attractions will have you humming all the classic holiday tunes. With so many great shows to choose from you may need to stay several nights.

The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is a Myrtle Beach holiday tradition for many locals and visitors alike. It is packed full of live Christmas classics and humor and runs through January 5, 2013.

You just might have a blue Christmas without Legends in Concert! Now through December 31st, you can bask in Legends’ Holiday Show featuring Elvis Presley (of course!), Celine Dion, Johnny Mathis, The Blues Brothers and Alan Jackson. In fact, they even offer some great dinner packages.

Opened in 2011, Pirates Voyage an “over the water” show continues to attract crowds. Christmas at Pirates Voyage Fun, Feast & Adventure takes you on a voyage with Captain Scrooge and the mystical Spirit of Christmas. Enjoy a four course feast with acrobatics overhead, pirate crews and live animals.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament features something for those young and old, boy or girl, with gorgeous horses, chivalrous knights, a princess and a “Battle of Champions.” Plan a Royal Holiday Outing for groups of 15 or more guests.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground also sells tickets to “The South’s Grandest Christmas Show” at the Alabama Theatre and “Christmas on Ice” at The Palace Theatre.

Holiday Attractions Sure to Please

Ripley’s Aquarium features the “Festival of Trees” through December 31st. An event that began in 2001, has more than 50 decorated trees on display throughout Ripley’s Aquarium. Adorned in unique ornaments, each Christmas tree represents the great diversity of the United States.

If you’d like to avoid the hustle an bustle and get back to nature, Brookgreen Gardens features the glorious “Night of a Thousand Candles” December 7, 8, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22, 2012. Brookgreen Gardens comes to life amid the soft glow of more than 5,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights from 3 - 10 p.m. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, hear the sounds of hand bells ringing, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends.
