You may think that Myrtle Beach is only a summer vacation destination, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Planning a Myrtle Beach family vacation during the holiday season is a great way to break up the old routines and make new memories with the ones you love most. But what is there to do in the area during November and December? The possibilities are truly endless, but here, we’ve got three fun holiday events in Myrtle Beach for you to check out.


  1. Broadway at the Beach Tree Lighting


On November 12, 2022, Broadway at the Beach will host its annual Tree Lighting Celebration! The celebration will start at 6 p.m. and will feature live music and entertainment, plenty of special guests, and even a firework show! Of course, the main attraction here is the lighting of the Christmas tree itself. Bring your family early to enjoy the festivities throughout the afternoon, then stick around into the evening to see the Boardwalk lit up in all its holiday splendor.

  1. The South’s Grandest Christmas Show


As the most famous Christmas show in Myrtle Beach, The South’s Grandest Christmas Show is a festivity you won’t want to miss! This show is performed six nights a week during November and December, giving you plenty of opportunities to get your tickets. You’ll get to experience both traditional and contemporary holiday tunes, gorgeous decorations and lights all over the set, and special performances from the Comedic Juggler Slim Chance! You can purchase tickets online to ensure you can attend a performance during your vacation. The South’s Grandest Christmas Show takes place at the Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach.

  1. The Great Christmas Light Show


The North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex becomes transformed during the holiday season, hosting The Great Christmas Light Show! You can drive your car through the two-mile trail, passing by two million lights along the way! There are more than 500 customized light displays to admire on the drive, including animated figures and holiday scenes. Once you’re done with the drive, get out and visit Santa’s Village, offering hot chocolate and s’mores, rides on the Santa Express Train, and the chance to meet Santa himself! The Great Christmas Light Show will run from November 21 to December 30, 2022.
