Get Your Picture With Santa in Myrtle Beach
This is Santa Claus' hectic season, but he's never to busy to drop by the Grand Strand for few photo ops with children and kids at heart.
Here's a list of places the Jolly One will be making appearances from Thanksgiving Day all the way up to Christmas Eve:
Bass Pro Shops
Santa is the ultimate outdoorsman, at least one day a year, and he will be spending a lot of time at Bass Pro Shop's Santa's Wonderland.
In addition to one free photo with Santa, other events at the Myrtle Beach Mall location include crafts, games and other activities along with free Santa Bandz during select hours.
The photo schedule is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Black Friday and Saturday, then from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays and Christmas Eve.
The free crafts, games, activities and silly bands are from 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
Inlet Square Mall
The Murrells Inlet mall is offering photo with Santa daily for kids, and "Santa Claws" will be posing for free pictures with pets from 5-8 p.m. on Nov. 29-Dec. 20.

Even Santa needs a break, and Myrtle Beach State Park will be hosting "Santa on Vacation" at 1-4 p.m., featuring photos with Ol' St. Nick on the beach and other activities. The event is free with paid park admission and be sure to BYOC (bring your own camera).
