Christmas Shows in Myrtle Beach

Watching Christmas shows during the month of December can be one of the best things to do in Myrtle Beach during the holidays. If you are looking for a Dinner Show, then we suggest heading to Pirates Voyage for a fun festive show. We know of two best shows that pull out all the stops on their holiday productions. The two that are known as the best on the Grand Stand are Carolina Opry Christmas and The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at the Alabama Theater. Don’t miss either one of these shows this holiday season!

Hurricane Florence

UPDATE: Hurricane Florence

First off we know many of our readers are experiencing the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Our hearts go out to everyone as they work to return to normal life, and hopefully that’s soon.

Much of the coast of North Carolina and immediately inland are still feeling affects of the Hurricane. We just want to pass along this link to the American Red Cross Hurricane Florence Relief Fund as a show of support.

Myrtle Beach ended up being spared some of Florence’s more destructive forces, and thankfully we’re enjoying some tranquil weather. Clean up along the Grand Strand has been minimal and our resort is in perfect shape. After Hurricane Mathew two years ago we’re extra thankful and heart broken for the coast to our north and inland as they recover.

It’s forecasted to be rather warm and sunny, so please do consider a stay, we’d love to have you. Stay safe, and we hope to see you soon.

 

 

Pre- Hurricane Florence Info

Hurricane Florence is heading our way, and although of this writing nothing is certain, we want our guests to be prepared for the storm. We’re no stranger to these storms, and preparing for the worst is the best thing to do.

Hurricane Florence is expected to be a long lasting storm with tropical storm force winds arriving as early as Thursday, and the storm could last well into the weekend.

Stay tuned to local emergency services as Florence approaches and take these warnings seriously. If you live near the coast or in affected areas projected to get lots of rain, be sure to evacuate should the order be given.
