When the yellow buses roll and the school bells ring along the Grand Strand this week, another carefree summer at the beach is over. For students, it's back to the arithmetic, athletic and after school routine.
From primary, pre-teens to upper classman, many youngsters look forward to cruising the halls with their friends and taking on new challenges in the upcoming school year. But even those — the most enthusiastic returnees — can benefit from a little extra surprise that gets the school year off just right.
So while you're crossing off that back to school shopping list of tablets, laptops and backpacks, why not let them add their own personal style and swag to their 2016-2017 wardrobe with a surprise trip to Broadway at the Beach.
From a special t-shirt or hoodie, to that jersey or hat emblazoned with support for their favorite team, a walk inside Broadway T-Shirt Co. & T-Shirt Connection, Lids & Sports Fanatics will have them representing as they head back into their fall routine!
For the little ones in pigtails to the young women that will soon be applying to college, a surprise trip to Claire's will let them accessorize in everything from glittery hair clips to casual scarves! For the girls cruising the halls of high school, a trip to Vividelle, House of Style and Bijuju Boutique will have them stepping into school in style with fashionable rompers, bling jewelry & purses.
And let's not forget about the shoes!
From the comfortable feel of Crocs, to the glamour of sparkly sandals or shiny dress-up shoes discovered at Rack Room Shoes or Shoes Boutique, you're bound to find something that makes your son or daughter smile when that alarm clock goes off on the first day of school. Okay, maybe they won't smile that early, but they'll like their new shoes!
And don't forget, you'll soon be packing their daily sandwiches, chips and drink or sending money with them so they can go through the ol' lunch line, so why not surprise them with a meal at the always fun Johnny Rockets or have them create their own signature pie at EXTREME Pizza. And one last trip to Wonderworks is a great way to jumpstart their minds before hitting the books!
So, there you have it... a surprise trip of fashionable finds, food & fun at Broadway at the Beach is the perfect way to wrap up the summer with your kiddos. Whether they want you to hold their hand as they walk into Kindergarten or they get embarrassed when you make them give you a hug & kiss goodbye before catching the bus, they and you will enjoy a trip to Broadway at the Beach, the place where memories are made, and where summer never really ends.
