No matter what time of year you visit Myrtle Beach, one thing’s for sure: there are tons of great stores and shopping malls in the area. However, during the Christmas season, vacationers can take advantage of Christmas deals as well as all of the unique shops along the Grand Strand. Cross all your loved ones off of your Christmas list while having a great time in beautiful Myrtle Beach at the same time.

While you’re in town, be sure to book tickets to one (or all) of the following shows: The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at the Alabama Theatre, Legends in Concert Holiday Show, Redneck Christmas Show at GTS Theatre, and The Christmas Show of the South at The Calvin Gilmore Theatre.

Deals

If you love saving money, then visiting Myrtle Beach during the Christmas season is a great way to catch some great deals. Since the hotel occupancy is down this time of the year, it is easy to find awesome deals on hotel rooms, as well as other things. Whether you choose to stay in your favorite summer hotel, or whether you take advantage of great prices on luxury resorts or condos, you’ll definitely end up paying less than during the peak summer seasons. This way, you can save vacation money and use it towards your Christmas shopping; it’s a win-win situation!

Holiday Meals

Sure, we all love a great Christmas meal, but when you’re on vacation in Myrtle Beach during the holidays, sometimes cooking isn’t the best option.

It may be too cold to go swimming in the ocean this time of the year, but you can always book your vacation at one of these Myrtle Beach hotels and resorts with indoor waterparks. That way, you don’t have to miss out on having fun in the water just because of the cooler weather. Plus, this is always an added bonus if you have kids with you, too! Take advantage of all of the holiday things to do in Myrtle Beach, but also get your fill of the beach life by splashing around with your family in an indoor waterpark.

Less Crowds

During Christmastime in Myrtle Beach, you can still enjoy your favorite attractions, but you can also have a blast checking out the many holiday-themed events going on around town. From fantastic lights shows to Christmas shows and even meals with Santa, being in Myrtle Beach during the holidays will surely get anyone in the Christmas spirit!
