Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la! It’s the most wonderful time of the year here in our neck of the woods in Myrtle Beach. The weather finally cools off, everything is a lot less hectic and everyone seems to be in a wonderful mood. There are always a ton of Christmas events in Myrtle Beach in December, so we thought we would provide you with a few of your favorites that you can check out while you visit us here at Inlet Sports Lodge!
North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade
The annual North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday December 2nd on Main Street from 5:30pm to 7pm. Be sure to stop by to check out the Christmas floats and marching bands as they make their way merrily down the street!
Murrells Inlet Christmas Parade
You know you are in South Carolina when boats decked out in Christmas decorations make their way down the street! Just a few minutes down the street from Inlet Affairs on Sunday December 3rd, the Murrells Inlet Christmas Parade will begin at 3pm and make it’s way from the north end of Highway 17 Business to the corner of Highway 17 Business and Wachesaw Road. Each boat will be tossing candy and other fun things for the kids. It’s a blast!
Nights of a Thousand Candles
A few miles south of Inlet Sports Lodge in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, you will find Brookgreen Gardens. For a few weekends in December, we are lucky enough to be able to view more than 5,500 hand-lit candles throughout their gardens. Sip on a cup of warm cider or hot chocolate as you listen to carolers or admire Christmas lights.
The Great Christmas Light Show
At the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex you will find over 2 MILLION Christmas lights! That’s right! Their winter wonderland includes a 1.5 mile ride through various displays and Santa’s Village where you can get something to eat and get your picture taken with Santa Claus himself!
Merry MarshWalk Christmas
For the first 3 Saturdays in the month of December, swing on by the MarshWalk in Murrells Inlet for a unique shopping experience! Beginning at 10am and ending at 5pm, browse offerings from local businesses and artists along the marsh.
Aside from these events, there are plenty of other Christmas shows and special events along the Grand Strand. You will be able to enjoy the holiday every day if you really want to! Please let us know if you need anything from us during your stay here in Myrtle Beach.
