While visions of sugar plums dance through the heads of others, are you dreaming of a sandy Christmas? If you are looking to escape all that white snow, the Grand Strand is the place to be this winter! Here are 10 reasons to spend the holidays at the beach…

  1. Tourist season is over.

A big plus to visiting the beach during the off-season is the lack of crowds. Instead, you’ll find fairly empty beaches (perfect for shell collecting and peaceful walks on the sand), a plethora of delectable restaurants to try (no reservations needed), and fun and festive attractions all decked out for the holiday season.

  1. A milder winter means more outdoor fun.

There is something charming about celebrating Christmas on the coast. The mild weather means that there is more you can do to celebrate the holiday season outdoors. Enjoy wearing less layers, and the ability to travel without driving through snow. Play a round of golf if you’d like. Make a sandman (just swap out snow for sand) — and don’t forget to take some family photos with your new pal. You might even catch a glimpse of Santa Claus out and about town (he’s known for frequenting the Myrtle Beach Area)!

  1. Take advantage of off-season discounts.

Another reason to travel to the beach during the holiday season is that prices are typically less during the off-season. This means that you can potentially score great deals on vacation rentals, entertainment venues, and local diversions.

  1. Give the gift of memorable experiences.

Make this a Christmas to remember, filled with experiences you can share together as a family. There are several great holiday shows to see when visiting the Grand Strand. Celebrate Christmas and enjoy a holiday feast at Pirate’s Voyage, see all your favorite idols at Legends in Concert, enjoy The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at The Alabama Theatre, or The Carolina Opry Christmas Special at the Carolina Opry Theater. Other festive local events include Ripley’s Aquarium Festival of Trees, A Night of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens, or The Great Christmas Light Show at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex.
