The Best Ways to Spend Your Winter Beach Vacation in North Myrtle Beach
Celebrate the Holidays
Myrtle Beach is known for its fabulous, festive spirit all year long. There’s no better way to ensure you and your family have an excellent Christmas season than by planning a trip to North Myrtle Beach. The area has Christmas shows that everyone will love, including dinners, light displays, and musicals. One of our favorite local winter wonderlands is Brookgreen Gardens Night of a Thousand Candles. During this spectacular event, over 4,500 hand-lit candles and glittering lights decorate the park. Enjoy a cup of hot cider and joyous Christmas carols as you stroll through the gardens with your loved ones.
If you’re in Myrtle Beach to ring in the new year, there’s plenty of fun, family-friendly activities to choose from. We highly recommend the annual “A Southern Times Square” extravaganza. The Market Common shopping district closes its streets for two stages of live music, a beer garden, and a fireworks display. You don’t want to miss one of the best North Myrtle Beach New Year’s Eve events!
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Whether you’re hoping to do some last-minute holiday shopping in December or looking to treat yourself after the new year, Myrtle Beach has everything you’re looking for and more. Visit Broadway at the Beach for endless shopping and dining options. The entertainment complex also hosts Ripley’s Aquarium, carnival rides, and a mirror maze for your family to enjoy! Barefoot Landing is a great shopping destination for boutiques and island-themed stores. The shopping village is set along the Intracoastal Waterway and features a 27-acre lake. Get ready to shop, dine, and enjoy the village’s beautiful location!
Experience Outdoor Activities
One of the most obvious perks of a winter getaway in Myrtle Beach is the weather. Mild temperatures and sunny skies allow guests to spend time outdoors in a warm sweater or light jacket. Enjoy a variety of recreational activities including golfing, boating, and strolling on the beach. You can even take a bike ride with the whole family. Stop by the Beach Bike Shop for bike rentals, locks, baskets, and helmets, then follow a map to the best bike-friendly roads and paths. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
