Celebrate Christmas At The Beach

An illuminated and decorated Christmas tree stands in the sand on a beach at sunset.

You wouldn’t think there’d be a lot to do at the beach during the last days of fall or the first few days of winter, right? But that’s where you’re wrong. Myrtle Beach has a ton of holiday fun poppin’ on the beach.

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland at The Beach is open through December 23, and brings this magical season into existence with walkable light displays on a mile-long stretch of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk right on the oceanfront. This event leads through downtown Myrtle Beach and features a Family Fun Zone that’s suitable for all ages. Tickets are available now on the Yodel app, and the Fun Zone is located between 8th and 9th Avenues North on the ocean side of Ocean Boulevard, across from the former Pavilion site. The Fun Zone is open Thursdays through Sundays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Live Performances

Want to see a great show this Christmas? Myrtle Beach has something for everyone! It doesn’t matter if you’re in the mood for Country or Motown, a Broadway-style performance or dinner and a show. We’ve got you covered. There are 10 different performances over the holiday season, and you’re sure to find one that will suit you and your family’s tastes.

Greatest (Christmas) Show on Earth

The Great Christmas Show in North Myrtle Beach is always one of the highlights of the holiday season. There are Millions of sparkling lights coordinated to many of everyone’s favorite holiday songs during the two-mile drive through the complex. Santa’s Village offers a chance for photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus,  as well as a petting zoo, and fire pits for  warming up or making sweet treats like s’mores. There’s also a Rockin’ Christmas Tree that plays music. Enjoy hot chocolate, snacks, and souvenirs for sale from local vendors. This is an affordable way to have a great time with the whole family, as admission to the Show is only $15 per vehicle. That includes admission to Santa’s Village. Extras like train rides and the elf hunt are $3 per person. They have snacks and hot cocoa for sale as well as souvenir toys. The Great Christmas Light Show is open every night December 16-30, except for Christmas Day, when it’s closed.
