What to Expect from a North Myrtle Beach New Year’s Eve
An Early Start at Barefoot Landing
The New Year’s celebration begins at Barefoot Landing, a complex on the beautiful Louis Lake and Intercoastal Waterway. Barefoot Landing contains exciting attractions designed for maximum entertainment, including an alligator, tiger, and monkey exhibit, as well as plenty of boardwalk rides and games. When it’s time to grab a bite to eat, head to one of the many themed restaurants that overlook the gorgeous lake. Or, if you’re feeling especially excited about the new year, treat your family to delicious homemade ice cream from The Crafty Cow!
For those who wish to turn in early this New Year’s Eve, Barefoot Landing has you covered with a 7:00 p.m. firework show on the waterfront. Imagine watching a South Carolina sunset turn into a night sky filled with dazzling lights! It’s an amazing event to end a perfect North Myrtle Beach New Year’s Eve.
A Southern Times Square Firework Extravaganza
North Myrtle Beach offers more than just one location to ring in the new year. The Market Common hosts its annual “A Southern Times Square” starting at 7:00 p.m. The shopping district closes its streets to host vendors, set up live music, and provide awesome entertainment like mimes and human statues. The event is perfect for all ages; adults can sit back and enjoy a beer while children play in giant bouncy castles. Join in on the fun and get your face painted, or watch artists make hand-blown glass right before your eyes. To top it off, Market Common live streams Times Square in New York City on their jumbo screen and performs their own mirror ball drop!
As the clock strikes 12:00 a.m., make sure to gather in the crowd and marvel at the spectacular closing firework show. An evening out at A Southern Times Square is always full of fun, and it’s a great way to start the new year off right!
Say Farewell to Christmas One Last Time
Maybe a big night out isn’t your cup of tea. Perhaps you’re hesitant about the new year and still reminiscing about Christmas cheer. If that’s the case, New Year’s Eve at North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex is a great way to enjoy Christmas one last time before surrendering to the new year. The park holds “The Great Christmas Light Show” annually and offers its last viewing on New Year’s Eve. Take the family on a ride to view two million lights displayed in perfect holiday spirit, and after exploring the 1.5-mile exhibit, feel free to stop by Santa’s Village for even more fun. Here, you can experience the petting zoo, grab some skates and show off your moves on the ice rink, and, most importantly, greet Santa for the last time of the year.
As the evening comes to a close and the festivities end, return to the comfort of a spacious home or quaint condo that best fits your family. If you want to keep your North Myrtle Beach New Year’s Eve going, take a dip in one of our hot tubs, or use our beach access to gaze at the fireworks in the distance.
