Looking to celebrate Independence Day in an exciting new way this summer? Grab the family and friends and heard to the Myrtle Beach area! We offer a variety of entertainment, fireworks displays and ways to show appreciation to our troops this July. Read on for some of the great events the Myrtle Beach area has to offer on, and around, Independence Day 2016!

Salute From The Shore

July 2nd, 2016

Show appreciation for the veterans that fought for our freedom over the years, and for our current, service men, on July 2nd, 2016. At Salute From The Shore, veterans fly over the beach and parties gather to salute and say thank you as the planes zoom overhead.

Salute from the Shore is a non-profit, grassroots group of patriotic South Carolinians who started this unique event in 2010. Touched by an outpouring of personal messages, stories and support, the group has continued to plan the annual display as an opportunity for families and individuals to salute and thank our armed forces while celebrating the 4th of July in on South Carolina beaches.

While Salute from the Shore plans to capture as much footage of the flyover as possible from both air and ground, participants are encouraged to get in on the action by taking their own video and photos, while sporting red, white and blue in clear view. Capture your own salute to send to post on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at salutefromtheshore.org, and tag images with #SalutefromtheShore!

For 85 years, Brookgreen Gardens has been offering a combination of beautiful gardens, fine art, education, and fun to locals, tourists and travelers of all ages. This must-see Myrtle Beach area attraction was named one of the Top 10 Gardens in the US by TripAdvisor, and consists of a wildlife preserve, sculpture garden, butterfly house, pontoon boat rides, a zoo, and so much more.

In celebration of the 85th Anniversary of Brookgreen Gardens, there is a new exhibit featuring 12 larger-than-life Lego brick sculpture installations made from almost 400,000 Lego bricks, including a giant tortoise, a 6-foot tall humming bird, a 7-foot tall dragonfly, a family of deer, and others. “Nature Connects” is an award-winning exhibit currently touring the country, created by Sean Kenney, renowned artist and children’s author. His work with Legos has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BBC news, ELLE, and Good Morning America.

The exhibit can be seen daily in the Native Wildlife Zoo from March 5 to September 5, and is included in the regular garden admission price. Each sculpture features panels with an educational message that promotes conservation, and there will be creative activities such as a Lego sculpture building contest, scavenger hunts, and 30,000 Lego bricks available for guests to play and build with during their visit.

Within the gorgeous gardens you will also find the largest and most comprehensive collection of American figurative sculpture in the country. There are over 1,400 pieces by 350 artists, who worked from the early nineteenth century to the present. Stroll through colorful summer blooms and southern magnolia trees, and take it the beauty of nature at its finest. Then visit alligators, river otters, white-tailed deer, foxes, owls, hawks, bald eagles, herons, egrets, and other native wildlife at the zoo and Cypress Aviary.

Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historic Landmark and nonprofit organization located just south of the Myrtle Beach area on U.S. 17, between Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island. It is open to the public daily and well worth the trip. Regular admission tickets are good for seven consecutive days and include admission to the gardens, Native Wildlife Zoo, the Lowcountry Center and Trail, and the Enchanted Storybook Forest, a wonderful play area for children. Visit their website for more information and to purchase tickets. All of your purchases help support Brookgreen Gardens, a non-profit whose mission is to display figurative sculpture by American artists and to preserve regional plants, animals, and history.

If you are looking for a great destination to take the kids this spring, the Myrtle Beach area is officially the place to be! Did you know Myrtle Beach was recently voted #1 in the 10 Best Readers’ Choice Poll for “Best Spring Break Destinations” by USA Today? Probably not surprising. But did you know it was selected by readers for its family-friendly atmosphere — a testament to the fact that the area can be both fun for families and spring breakers? Now that’s pretty cool!

The Myrtle Beach area is home to some of the most incredible attractions for kids and kids at heart! There is always something fun to do (when you’re not out playing on the beach, of course). Here are some tips for traveling with kids to make your spring (and/or summer) the best one yet!

9 Tips for Traveling With Kids

  • If you are looking to save some cash (and who isn’t?) be flexible on your travel dates. Flying on off-peak days, like Tuesdays and Thursdays, often yields lower fares.
  • If you are driving, pack a cooler with snacks, lunch, and cool beverages for the road. Think of the time (and money) you’ll save on your trip by planning ahead!
  • If you have a long drive, leave in the wee hours of the morning. The kids will still be sleepy and by the time they wake, you can stop for breakfast and a bathroom break. Leaving early can help to avoid traffic and gets you to your destination at a decent hour, with time left to have some fun!
  • Audio books are a great way to pass the time while traveling. Visit the library before your trip and stock up on fun, family-friendly stories to listen to in the car.
  • Keep paper towels, wet wipes, plastic bags, and a change of clothes in the car (or carry on bag) in case motion sickness hits.
  • If you’re going to be traveling through busy airports or crowded attractions with little ones, write your mobile number on your child’s arm in permanent marker in case they get lost. Or customize your own safetytat, a sweat-proof, waterproof tattoo made specifically for kids.
  • In in each new place, don’t forget to designate a meeting point in case anyone gets separated from the group. Better to be safe than sorry!
  • When vacationing, make lunch your big meal out. Restaurants usually offer the same food as on the dinner menu, but at lower prices. Plus the meal will be more enjoyable when the kids are not exhausted (after a long day of fun).
  • Stick to a one-souvenir policy per child and set a price limit. This will deter them from asking for something from the gift shop everywhere they go, and they will choose wisely.

Spring is just a hop, skip and a jump away. So spend some vacation time with your family in the Myrtle Beach area, and see for yourself why we’re #1!

Ripley’s Haunted Adventure
913 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach
Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach’s downtown district, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is not for the faint of heart. This spine-tingling, multi-million dollar attraction was designed to resemble a spooky mansion with broken shutters and haunting noises, but the real scares take place inside. Rated the #1 haunted house in Myrtle Beach, The Haunted Adventure begins with an elevator ride to the top floor of the three-story building. From there, visitors encounter live actors and animatronic characters on their way through the pitch-dark halls and dimly lit rooms, with real and make-believe monsters around every corner. Feel free to scream as loudly as you want!

Outbreak – Dread the Undead

If you make your way through the zombie infested labs, the morgue, and the rotting basement, you might be able to rid the world of Alpha Strain. But, then again, you might not! Outbreak – Dread the Undead is located inside the Hollywood Wax Museum, across the street from Broadway at the Beach, and is perfect for zombie fans.

Nightmare Haunted House
1001 N. Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach
So you don’t believe in ghastly ghouls and goblins, demented butchers and creepy clowns? You will, after you visit the darkest of Myrtle Beach’s haunted attractions.
