Here are 3 Reasons to Start the New Year in Myrtle Beach.

There’s never a bad time of year to plan a Myrtle Beach family vacation, but if you have the chance to ring in the New Year on our shores, take advantage of it! There are so many amazing events and festivities happening around the area this New Year that you’re not going to want to miss a minute. Pack your bags, grab the kids, and enjoy the South Carolina shores as you welcome 2023 with your family.

Tons of Exciting Activities

Myrtle Beach knows how to bring in the New Year in style. Of course, the most popular activity happening on NYE is the firework display at Broadway on the Beach. Enjoy all kinds of shopping and dining before the fireworks kick off at 8 p.m.! You can also find a fun firework show at nearby Barefoot Landing if you want something a bit less crowded.

For something truly unique, check out the A Southern Times Square event happening at The Market Common! Besides the mirrorball drop at midnight, you can enjoy live music, gorgeous scenery, and a laser light show! NYE celebrations will also be happening at Margaritaville and RipTydz, among other local businesses.

Family-Friendly Attractions

You want the entire family to have fun on vacation, and with all the fascinating things to do in Myrtle Beach, you’ll never be bored! Enjoy a family-friendly early NYE celebration (running from 4 to 7 p.m.) at Dave and Busters or stroll around Broadway at the Beach to shop, experience the aquarium, catch a movie, or test your brain with an escape game.

Even if you head away from the downtown area, you’ll find plenty of things for the entire crew to enjoy. Visit Myrtle Beach State Park or Huntington Beach State Park to escape the busy city and reconnect with nature. Get competitive with mini golf or go-karts to bring out the child in everyone! From dinner theater to kid-friendly museums, Myrtle Beach truly has it all.

Fun Day Trips for a Full Getaway

You don’t have to limit yourself to a weekend trip to enjoy the holiday in Myrtle Beach. Extend your trip a bit and explore the area! There are quite a few notable small towns near Myrtle Beach that you and your crew can explore for a truly unique start to the year.

For instance, take a 40-minute drive down the coast to reach Pawleys Island. Here, you’ll find breathtaking beaches, gorgeous gardens, and enticing eateries everywhere you turn. Check out attractions like Brookgreen Gardens and the Island Art Gallery.

Another interesting day trip destination is Murrells Inlet, about 30 minutes from the city.
